Thought of the Day

By the way, that's another example of the self-indulgent irrelevance of Obama. The mound of corpses being piled up around the world today is not from high-tech nuclear states but from low-tech psycho states. It's not that Britain has nukes, and poor old Sudan has to make do with machetes. It's that the machete crowd are willing to kill on an industrial scale, and the high-tech guys can't figure out a way to stop them. Perhaps for his next pointless yakfest the president might consider a machete nonproliferation initiative.

Only two nations I know of have voluntarily scrapped their nuke weapons programs, South Africa and Libya. Allowing Iran to get nuke weapons is a second Holocaust, it's flipping the bird to "never again" again. Of course, to President Obama, and his party in general, whose antipathy towards Israel is palpable, a nuke weapon vaporizing downtown Tel Aviv will be sad but ultimately no big deal. However, for those of us who support and even love Israel (mostly on the right, with the liberal Jewish majority a mystery exception to that truth) it is a crime no less evil than the industrial scale murder of the Jews and Gypsies, und so weiter, during the second half of WWII, but with much clearer proof of accessory before the fact charges.
