The Global War On You Know Who

"The West is facing a concerted effort by Islamic jihadists, the motives and goals of whom are largely ignored by the Western media, to destroy the West and bring it forcibly into the Islamic world -- and to commit violence to that end even while their overall goal remains out of reach. That effort goes under the general rubric of jihad."

Iranian Hostage Crisis, Part II

Once a hostage-taker, always a hostage-taker (above, Ahmadinejad in 1979). This time, Iran's Islamic revolutionaries hold an entire country at gunpoint (or rather, nuclear-missile-point): Nobody move, or Israel dies.
Iran threatened on Tuesday to attack Israel in response to any "evil" act by the United States and said it had enriched uranium to a level close to the maximum compatible with civilian use in power stations.
The rest of the article is the usual pointless blather about whether or not Iran's uranium enrichment program is for electricity or weapons.

Today we reflect with pride and satisfaction upon the heroes who consigned Hitler, Mussolini, and Tojo, and Saddam and the Taliban, to the dustbin of history. Soon, we will do the same when we remember and honor those who had the courage and the will to crush the Iranian thugocracy once and for all.

Almost certainly, Europeans will not be among them. Nor do I expect them to have the decency to be ashamed that -- again -- America is virtually alone in its stance that exterminating Jews is wrong.

I just hope we're a little quicker on the draw this time.
