My personal musings about anything that gets on my radar screen--heavily dominated by politics.


Speculation on "Harm The National Security"

Exhibit A: Ignoring strong international protests, Iran resumed work on its uranium enrichment program Tuesday after a two-year suspension. U.S. and European officials said the move sharply reduced chances of containing the country's nuclear ambitions through negotiation.

Exhibit B: Iran threatened Friday to block U.N. inspections of its nuclear facilities and end all voluntary cooperation if it is referred to the U.N. Security Council as the long confrontation over Iran's nuclear program escalated.

Exhibit C: Libyan leader Moammar Khadafy, ostracized for decades by Western nations for his role in supporting terrorism, agreed yesterday to dismantle the country's weapons of mass destruction as part of a deal with Britain and the United States that would bring Libya slowly back into the international community. . .

Libya, the US official said, contacted Britain in mid-March to explore the possibility of working with London and Washington to disclose aspects of its weapons of mass destruction programs.

That timing coincides almost precisely with the start of the war in Iraq, which began March 19

Exhibit D: Most U.S. troops will leave Iraq within a year because the Army is "broken, worn out" and "living hand to mouth," Rep. John Murtha told a civic group.

Are these four exhibits linked in any way? You know, maybe, just a little bit, RELATED?

Sure, Ahmedinijad is probably certifiable; but nobody ever really gave Qaddafi (Khaddafi? Kadafi?) much credit for his grasp on reality.

Add to that reports that Qaddafi (Khaddafi? Kadafi?) told Italian P.M. that the fate of Saddam Hussein was one of his principle motivations for allowing inspections, and you have to think that maybe the defeatism of the Left has had a profound effect on the views of the world's dangerous crackpots of the United States.

Or, more importantly, their views on our ability to restrain their insanity.
