Dinesh D'Souza gives a particulary vicious criticism of former president Jimmy Carter, saying he is largely to blame for radical Islam becoming mainstream and has no business telling anyone how radical Islam should be dealt with. No punches pulled. No holds barred.

The Carter administration’s role in assisting with the downfall of the Shah is one of America’s great foreign policy disasters of the twentieth century. In trying to get rid of the bad guy, Carter got the worse guy. His failure, as former Democratic senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan once said, was the result of being “unable to distinguish between America’s friends and enemies.” Carter does not deserve sole discredit for these actions. This intellectual framework that shaped Carter’s misguided strategy was supplied by the political left.

By aiding the Shah’s ouster and with Khomeini’s consolidation of power, the left collaborated in giving radical Islam its greatest victory in the modern era. Incredibly this same cast of characters who lost Iran wants to block Bush’s policies in Iraq. In doing so they are playing with fire. The radical Muslims who already control Iran are trying to bring a second major state, Iraq, into their orbit. Then, they have said, they will target Egypt and Saudi Arabia.

D'Souza is a very articulate writer. I like hearing what he has to say.

Yup, Carter's actions are just further proof that liberal foreign policy is disasterous for not only us but the entire world. Liberalism brought us Islamic extremism in the middle east, communist victory in the far east, and will probably bring about the downfall of America.

Vote Liberal! The cost of freedom is too high!

Say it with a sickle and hammer!
I should trademark it and sell it to Hitlery. Sad thing is, she'd probably win with it in this day and age.
