No one at NLT has yet linked to Mark Steyns indispensible article on Iran, which is well-timed to coincide with Irans latest incitement for war--the announcement yesterday that they have passed the uranium reprocessing stage. My guess is that Irans crack-brained president actually wants us and/or the Israelis to attack Iran, hoping to explode the entire Middle East while we are overextended.
BONUS for all you NLT trolls: Ive been reading Ken Adelmans oral history (part of the Ronald Reagan Oral History Project at the University of Virginias Miller Center), where he tells the story of accompanying Jimmy Carter to Wiesbaden, West Germany to meet the freed hostages from Iran. Adelman confirms that the hostages greeted Carter angrily. But the really amazing thing was Carters reaction to being told by the doctors of the torture the hostages had undergone. Carter asked the head doctor, "Didnt they know that this was wrong to do?" The doctor asked, "What do you mean?" Carter repeated, "They know that this is wrong to do." The incredulous doctor could only reply, McCoy-like, "Im just a doctor. . . I dont know what the Iranians think."
Adelman thought Carters question was "profoundly imbecilic." Just like his presidency.
