The Islamofascist Thug President of Iran, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has threatened to resume his country's pursuit of a nuclear arsenal.
I need not, at least I shouldn't have to, remind anyone about the dangers a nuclear Iran would pose to the Middle East specifically, and the world in general. The Cold War was largely mitigated by the fact the US and USSR knew what would result if a nuclear exchange took place. Say what you want about either side, but the desire to live in a fallout free world trumped the desire to kill the enemy.
The Islamofascist way of looking at life is very different from the Cold War mentality. These are people who don't think twice about walking into a crowded market and blowing themselves and the crowd into tiny bits. Take that mentality, and add to it a nuclear weapon, and you have a scenario only a Mullah could love.
The International Atomic Energy Association is concerned. The United Nations is concerned. Condi Rice has warned Iran "strongly". Personally, I put more weight with Condi than the IAEA and UN put together. Waiting for those organizations to act would be tantamount to getting hotdogs and marshmallows to roast over the impact crater.
Iran cannot be allowed to go obtain, create, or otherwise posses nuclear weapons. It is that simple, and nothing short of that outcome - whether arrived at through diplomatic or military means - can be acceptable.
Here endeth the lesson.
