Blog Recommendation

Filed under: Election 2008,Media,Republicans,Terrorism — Sisyphus @ 8:09 am

For those of you who don’t visit it regularly, I urge a visit to Michael Ledeen’s excellent blog, Faster, Please! He’s an excellent source of information on the crumbling, tottering edifice of Iranian Islamofascism. He’s also a courteous, considerate host, and allows for a reasonable, profanity-free debate. I post there every chance I get.

Ledeen recognizes the futility of negotiating with madmen and evildoers, but I’m not sure he agrees with me yet that a massive military strike is our only feasible option for solving the problem. He’s a very intelligent, articulate man, though, so I have hope that he’ll soon be swayed by the overwhelming evidence in favor of my view. We cannot allow this regime to stand, no matter how soon we think it may collapse. We must act now, lest we regret our inaction later!

  1. If anyone can convince Leeden, Sisyphus, it’s you! Keep at it.

    The approach must be double-pronged, IMO. I agree that it is futile to try to negotiate with madmen or with those who have no respect for human lives. However, I think we should also make certain that the people who live under those regimes are taught and shown that there ARE better ways to live, and that they can live with freedom and dignity, and without fear. If the populace grows to crave freedom and democracy, then once the madman is taken out of the equation, the transition to democracy is already well underway. That is one mistake that I think was made in Iraq. We tried to instill democracy after toppling Saddam, and it left an ideological vaccuum. We should have been working on exposing the Iraqis to democratic ideals ever since the first Gulf War.
