Israel's Obit? Not Likely Mr. Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad

Citing Jane's Defence Weekly (subscription required), The World Tribune reports that Syria and Iran will provide assistance to each other if the world community does anything to thwart Iran's nuclear program or Syria's military. These rogue countries will provide each other safe haven and military weaponry. Syria agreed to store Iranian materials and weapons should Teheran come under United Nations sanctions. Iran also pledged to grant haven to any Syrian intelligence officer indicted by the UN or Lebanon.

Doesn't that just make it easy for us to see who is next on the Hit Parade? Per Jack Langer at Human Events, the Israelis plan on a March hit on Iran whether the country is led by Netanyahu or Sharon. One cannot expect Israel to wait when Iran has openly stated their intentions to annihilate Israel. Though Israel's Defense Ministry has declared that there were no intentions to attack Iran “at the moment”.

Where is Bush on that? Per Langer:

It is clear that Bush views a nuclear-armed Iran as unacceptable and that if diplomacy fails, the U.S. would support an Israeli strike on Iran, possibly even assisting it. There is little doubt that such an attack would complicate U.S. efforts in Iraq by antagonizing the Iraqi population, especially the Shiites. But in the global War on Terror, the Bush Administration has decided that Iran’s acquisition of nuclear weapons simply cannot be countenanced. The only question is whether, by March, it will agree with Israel that the time for diplomacy has already expired.

There goes the "order" in Iran and Syria, huh Lefties? I guess we get Syria in this short 2 on 2 match. Reid, Pelosi and Dean are working on something. They are wasting their time if they are preparing an obituary for Israel.

Added Skip March:

The underwhelming response from the rest of the world through the United Nations to Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's madness is fully expected. Not only is the UN incompetent and corrupt, but in fact it is dangerous. It's failure to decisively confront Iraq and now Iran demonstrates the sympathies of the majority of its members including the Security Council. Lessons of history won't be learned here.

Remarkably, arguments questioning Israel's legitimacy still persist despite the fact that it was the first country formed with the consent of the world through the UN. Origins of most other Middle Eastern countries arose from empires and colonialism (Balfour nothwithstanding). Where's the moral legitimacy there? Their leaders are largely despots.

As Ronald Reagan taught us all, tough choices can be simple and clear, but that doesn't mean they are easy. It is simply clear that we should no longer choose the course charted by a corrupt and dangerous institution....the UN. This choice will not be easy in the face of phony moral outrage from that institution and its supporters, foreign and domestic. But it is a choice that will have to be made.

Nor the death of Western music in Iran. Sir Elton will live forever in the hearts and souls of Iranian youth.
