Newsweek, which happily decided we were all socialists now after Barack Obama was elected President, and which thinks we should surrender to the global jihad, takes a surprising new tack in “Enough Is Enough” by Richard N. Haass, January 22 (thanks to John):
I’ve changed my mind. The nuclear talks are going nowhere. The Iranians appear intent on developing the means to produce a nuclear weapon; there is no other explanation for the secret uranium-enrichment facility discovered near the holy city of Qum. Fortunately, their nuclear program appears to have hit some technical snags, which puts off the need to decide whether to launch a preventive strike. Instead we should be focusing on another fact: Iran may be closer to profound political change than at any time since the revolution that ousted the shah 30 years ago.
But Barack Obama, of course, has done nothing to aid those who might have toppled the Islamic regime, or at least installed a somewhat more humane and less anti-Western, anti-Israel regime.
