FAR AWAY, SO CLOSE: There’s a possibility that we could be seeing more regime change both near and abroad. This AP headline–“Iran Blocks U.N. Nuke Watchdog’s Moves“–along with James Lileks’ recent column, has an ominous sense of deja vu about it. Iran’s mullahs are obviously gambling that after liberating Iraq only a few months ago, that we’re not prepared to have a repeat anytime soon. But Lileks’ second option would certainly be a useful interim step.
Meanwhile, Orrin Judd has news that Karl Rove has been consulting with the recall-Davis movement. As Orrin writes, “Well, the White House has had great success with regime change lately…”
On both fronts, as saying goes…faster please.
