Iran Winning Political War
A story in this morning’s newspaper explained that Iran lied to a United Nations’ agency about its nuclear program because it feared attack from the U.S. and Israel. Uh huh. And it no doubt kidnapped those 15 British sailors and marines because it was afraid that if it didn’t do something to turn attention away from its activities in Iraq and its nuclear program that the U.S. and Israel and the world already knew about, then everyone would be talking about its nuclear program and its activities in Iraq, which of course is bad for Iran. All of which begs the question, “How stupid to these bozos think the rest of the world is?”
On the other hand, there is ample evidence that a significant portion of the nations of the world either are stupid about Iran, or at least are too afraid of the regime to admit they know what the ayatollahs and Ahmadinejad are up to.
Iran has everyone hoodwinked, which isn’t all that difficult these days, given the sissified leadership of much of Europe. It doesn’t help that Russia, while not a sissified nation, is in bed with Iran on selling nuclear technology and other economic entanglements. But how much longer is the world going to sit on their hands while Iran defies the UN and develops nuclear technology that everyone knows will eventually lead to a nuclear-armed unstable regime? And how much longer is Tony Blair going to keep making excuses for not going after his sailors and marines?
Oh how I long for the days of Margaret Thatcher.
