Just like Iraq

At first it reads like the usual "Now the whole world hates us because of the War" american leftist diatribe, but upon close inspection this article does make some serious points. Definitely worth a read!

    Most people I speak with think the Iranian BS about destroying Israel is about calming the Arabs before “persia” takes their rightful place as the dominant power in the region. Nobody will care if that happens.

    “For those who’ve forgotten (and this, too, has dropped out of the news), it is not the United States but Britain, France, and Germany who are trying to persuade the Islamic republic to abandon plans to enrich its own uranium and to accept assistance in building a civil nuclear energy program instead.”

    Hein ????

    Yes, nomad, yes. It seems that you do not follow news.
    European Union (EU) members Britain, France and Germany are considering offering a new bundle of wide-ranging incentives to Iran in return for a guarantee that it will suspend its uranium-enrichment activities, …..(they offered it- couple of times, IRI rejected it- couple of times)
    A draft statement for Monday’s EU meeting obtained by Bellona Web stated the group was ready to help Tehran develop “a safe, sustainable and proliferation-proof civilian nuclear programme” while insisting it halt all enrichment on its own soil. Russia had previously offered—in an effort to de-fuse the stand-off between Iran and the EU3—to enrich Iranian uranium in Russia, but was rebuffed. (05/2006)

    Great article. I does have some very important points, as you said it. I particularly liked this fragment, it is sooo true:
    therefore, is the skepticism about any assessments of anybody’s nuclear program, that even a report bearing a United Nations or European Union label would fail to convince, even if Iranian nukes were on display in downtown Tehran. All analysis coming out of the United States is, of course, automatically discounted.

    This is just the Phase II Liberal bullsh*t. It has been predicted in American Blogs for some time.

    They started with “Quagmire! We must all run away”, waving the white flag and predicting disaster.

    Well, it isn’t a disaster. Iraq is on a knife-edge, but seems to be shaking off the insurgency, pulling together, kicking the crap out of Al-Qaeda, and STARTING to come around.

    What do the liberals say now? “OH! It wasn’t worth the lives, or the money, or all of our “friends” who now say bad things about us.”

    Rubbish. Iraqis are human beings who deserve a chance to live in a decent society of their own making. That it cost us dearly is not important. If you could, would you not help another? Even if he were not like you? Our brave soldiers, as well as the Iraqi military, the police, and the brave citizens who stand up and fight are heroes, known to us and revered for their sacrifice.

    As for the “friends” whose feelings are hurt? They weren’t our friends. Now they are ashamed that they stayed home, peeing in their beds. They are cowardly children hiding behind lies and slick words. They are not friends of any worth.

    Now they try to protect the next hate-filled loser and his fanatics. Ahmadinejad.

    We’ll get around to him… soon.
