If George W. Bush can let Dear Leader Kim Jong-Il off the hook (the most virulent, unstable, anti-American card-carrying Axis of Evil dude on the planet), what must our fearless leader have in store for Iran? Ahmedinejad thumbs his nose at W’s sabre-rattling, knowing that with our military hobbled in Iraq we are reduced to a pathetic paper tiger. Diplomacy practiced from a position of strength is always a winning strategy. Bush has foolishly sapped our strength, and thus can not pursue diplomacy – only appeasement. Add this to the legacy of 43.
