Iran’s satellite launch earlier this month should have been a wake-up call. Instead, the West has reached over and hit the snooze button.
Swift, vigorous measures need to be taken to deal with the new reality that Iranians, who could possess a nuclear weapon by the end of next year, have demonstrated that their Safir 2 rocket, which was used as the launch vehicle, is able to deliver a warhead to southern Europe....
It's the same "not us" mentality that controls the world's attitude towards the Arab terrorists, Hamas=Fatah, which attack Israel and Jews. "The world" thinks that if they let them attack us, then the terrorist appetites will be satiated, and the rest of the world will be safe.
That's a fatal delusion. The terrorist mentality isn't like the modern diet:
"If you have a small bite of something sweet, before you're craving sweets, it will prevent your eating high calorie foods."
"Never let yourself get hungry."
That's why the keep telling Israel to "turn the other cheek."
"If you ignore the terrorists, they'll lose interest and stop attacking you."
Yeah, sure. If you believe that you also believe that better booze and cookies left for Santa will guarantee you better presents.
Of course, actions prove that many Americans don't take the same medicine they're prescribing for Israel. That's why Bush attacked Iraq.
Rather hypocritical... Yes, but that's another story....
