    against Iran. I don't see other countries aiding us in this one. The Chinese and the Russians want to befriend Tehran and the Euros have lost the ability to act. I cannot see President Bush leaving office without addressing Iran. There is a window of opportunity before the insane Persians actually obtain/create enough fissible material to create a bomb. That is a long way from putting a warhead on a missile but that is clearly not Iran's immediate goal. They want to be able to threaten, intimidate, and coerce others to their will. Of course the near theatre threat is to Israel but President Foaming at the Mouth has made it clear the US is a target as well.
    The United States has tarried long enough in standing up to the Iranians. Time for action. Bomb the hell out of them. Blockade their oil shipments. Bomb their oil wells and means of production. I'm afraid it's too late in the game for diplomacy. And if diplomacy were even tried the Iranians beleive now that no one will call their bluff. It will mean more world wide condemnation of the United States but at this point I believe we have no choice.
    Much as the Europeans did before World War II by allowing Hitler to prattle on and annex Austria and occupy the Sudentenland that resulted in horrifying war and death for millions many now want only to appease Iran. I hope for the sake of the lives of millions the United States steps in NOW and takes action. Begin with economic sanctions. Move the Navy into position to halt all shipping. Then start the bombs falling.
    Those who believe that we can wait for regime change can join Zbigniew Brzezinski and his foolhardy group of appeasers. That thinking has not resulted in anything positive since 1979. The problem has been allowed to fester too long to now engage in diplomatic appeasement.
    History has proven time and again that blustering dictators must be dealt with quickly and harshly.
    Let the bombs begin to fall. After we contain the Iranians the world can cease it's belly aching and thank us.... but I won't bet on any gratitude.

    A related article by one of our favorite guys, Kathianne. All I can say to Steyn is "Welcome to frustration city."
