Tweet Sometimes my liberal friends surprise me. Buried amongst the snarky, ill-informed pictures they routinely post, I’ll occasionally find something thoughtful and important. Very, very important — such as this short video explaining precisely why Iran poses such a threat, not just within the Middle East, but to the whole world, America included: The question [...]

Tweet The choice before the Cambridge Debating Society was whether one should choose war to stop Iran from going nuclear, or simply accept a nuclear Iran. Douglas Murray offers a devastating rebuttal to those who say, “Who cares if Iran goes nuclear?” The 11 minute video starts out good and, halfway through, gets great: Hat [...]
Tweet In his excellent post about the myriad flaws in the administration’s probable (and inchoate) containment plan for Iran, Max Boot makes a very important point, one I’ve somehow missed when reading others on the same subject. He argues that Leftist nostalgic for the realpolitik of the Cold War, which saw us learning to live [...]
Tweet You know the story: Obama has informed the world that we won’t use our nuclear weapons unless some rogue regime strikes. Aside from the fact that he’s now tacitly admitted that he’s not going to stop Iran from going nuclear, he’s also announced to every nuclear nation in the world that the U.S. is [...]
Tweet Several years ago, when Bush Derangement Syndrome was at its peak, I tackled the “he’s got his finger on the button and he’s going to blow up the world” meme that anti-war activists were so shrilly screaming. I pointed out that there was no evidence whatsoever to indicate that George Bush was an apocalyptic [...]
Tweet I’m not sure why Canada, except for maybe the large Muslim population, the porous border, and the country’s politically correct inertia: Iran is attempting to acquire clandestine shipments via Canada for its nuclear program, a senior customs official said Thursday. Canadian customs officers have seized everything from centrifuge parts to programmable logic controllers being [...]
Tweet I few hours ago, I read the Twitters on “peculiar earthquakes” in the Korean Peninsula. Now I know why they were peculiar: the North Koreans are testing nukes. Oh, joy. I hope the White House’s “grave concern” translates into intelligent action.
Tweet Those of us who were paying attention knew that Obama was lying during the campaign season when he claimed that he was Israel’s best friend. The words sounded pretty, but we knew about (a) his nonexistent track record supporting Israel in the Senate and (b) his affiliations with people (Wright, Powers, etc.) who demonize [...]
Tweet Believe it or not, the words of my post title were my exact words to my children the other day. My daughter came up to me, very concerned, because she’d heard somewhere that Iran has a nuclear bomb. I assured her that Iran does not yet have a nuclear bomb, although it wants one. [...]
Tweet Only Claude Raines, of course, could infuse the word “shocked” with the perfect sarcastic inflection, indicating that he wasn’t shocked at all, but you’ll still know exactly what I mean when you read the following: Iran warned Sunday it may limit cooperation with the U.N. nuclear watchdog, expressing disappointment over the agency’s recent report [...]
Tweet Frankly, I don’t know if I’ve ever said it on my blog, but both my mother and Don Quixote can corroborate the fact that I’ve been saying for years that mutually assured destruction is not deterrent when dealing with Iranian leaders because they not only believe in the Muslim equivalent of the Apocalypse, they [...]
