@scientific socialist - Are there any dead people on the IOC who can be pressed by the Danish version of Acorn [Acørn]?
Yes, it is a nicely stated summary. Ahmadinejad and the mullahs have been pushing for years and gotten little resistance from the US. Military intervention was never really an option, but I think Bush did less than he could have.
We have a military presence in two countries that neighbor Iran, but no will to deter. Just stacking up the vulnerabilities, the Afghan strategy is critical, but politics and the Olympics must come first.
@scientific socialist - Oh yes he will: he'll go to Copenhagen. So there.
