Arming for Armageddon: “Lest you get carried away with today’s good news from Iraq, consider what’s happening next door in Iran. The wild pronouncements of the new Iranian president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, have gotten sporadic press ever since he called for Israel to be wiped off the map. He subsequently amended himself to say that Israel should simply be extirpated from the Middle East map and moved to some German or Austrian province. Perhaps near the site of an old extermination camp?

Except that there were no such camps, indeed no Holocaust at all, says Ahmadinejad. Nothing but ‘myth,’ a ‘legend’ that was ‘fabricated . . . under the name ‘Massacre of the Jews.’ ‘ This brought the usual reaction from European and American officials, who, with Churchillian rage and power, called these statements unacceptable. That something serious might accrue to Iran for this — say, expulsion from the United Nations for violating its most basic principle by advocating the outright eradication of a member state — is, of course, out of the question.” — Charles Krasthammer / Washington Post Read The Rest of This !!!

What would be the immediate reaction if a missle or stealth nuke should go off in Tel Aviv courtesy of the Islamic Republic of Iran? Read this Washington Post article why the world should be FAR MORE CONCERNED about Iran than the current Bush doctrine of Democratization of the Middle East. For some insight into the beliefs that motivate madmen and religious fanatics to desire WMD, reflect on this article from Charles Krausthammer… zzb
