Man. Let a wild-ass nation enrich a little uranium, and suddenly they've got all these oats so sow:
"Like it or not, the Zionist regime is heading toward annihilation," [Iranian President and former kidnapper Mahmoud] Ahmadinejad said at the opening of a conference in support of the Palestinians. "The Zionist regime is a rotten, dried tree that will be eliminated by one storm."
Usually when you read that some Islamic leader has made a threat against Israel, the proper response is, "You and what army?" Only these days, Iran is close to having nukes. And leadership in Tehran nowhere close to sanity.
We see where we get by letting try to talk to Iran, all warm and fuzzy and multilaterally. Now what?
