Iran in the Crosshairs

Posted by Ryan on February 10, 2007

I like the talk out of the tabloid British press:  America could being airstrikes against Iran by this spring!  Why do I like this?  Because Iran has recently been emboldened by our “there’s NO WAY we’d attack Iran” nonsense lately and has interfered in Iraq, Israel, Lebanon, and flipped off the UN’s IAEA.  Even if we have absolutely NO intent to strike Iran, they should still be left to wonder if we might.  Mutually Assured Destruction kept the peace for decades because we might nuke each other to bits.

All this defeatist attitude in America lately (read: Bush’s ambiguity, the Democrat Congress and their willing accomplices in the MSM) is quite harmful.  Our enemies won’t attack us when we’re at our strongest point.  They’ll hit us, or push us, when they think our guard is down or weakened.  Iran needs to be schooled in international cooperation, or be schooled in the way a MOAB can knock down your china from ten miles away.  Either way, the ayatollah’s need to learn something.
