A couple of articles HERE and HERE have come upon my radar.
The one about Iraq is a very good expose on the liberal lefty media. However, I do have difficulty believing the nation building efforts will ultimately be successful for the simple reason that the country is composed (in roughly equal numbers) of three ethnic groups which utterly utterly hate one another.
The other one about Iran reminds us, in case we had forgotten, what an evil regime it is. If Nazi Germany needed to be dealt with then so does this one. There is absolutely no difference in the hideousness of the ideology that drove one over 60 years ago and that is driving this one now.
