I hate to beat a dead horse, but in the first article above, they reference a subject in a previous post. A report was leaked to the press in 2007. It said that Iran had discontinued its nuclear bomb program. The Democrats and their witless lap dogs in the media used it to flog poor GW. They said that it proved that GW was lying and that his lies were just an excuse to attack Iran. We now know who the liars are; see below for an excerpt.
One of the key judgments of the report stated:
“We judge with high confidence that in fall 2003, Tehran halted its nuclear weapons program; we also assess with moderate-to-high confidence that Tehran at a minimum is keeping open the option to develop nuclear weapons.”
But the senior foreign counterproliferation official who spoke with WTOP says, “We really have not seen any change in Iranian procurement efforts over the last 5 years.”
It used to be that the world community could expect the United States to play the role of policemen. Much like a good teacher on the playground, the “children” could threaten each other with: “If only Ms BigStick weren’t here I’d kick your ass”.
But no more.
While “I AM the ONE we have been waiting for” flounders in a sea of oil, the rest of the world decides that they will have to take care of themselves. And THAT’S unpredictable.
Pray for peace. The gross incompetence of “He who’s Middle Name cannot be spoken” makes war all that much more probable. I will take no joy in saying: “I told you so”.
