Today my favorite Middle East dictator, Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, made the headlines by unveiling his new “Ambassador of Death,” an unmanned bomber that can carry up to four cruise missiles 620 miles.
As I looked at the picture of Mahmoud with his new toy, I could only breathe a sigh of relief that another regional despot, Saddam Hussein, was no longer around to play with the world and the International Atomic Energy Agency.
Yeah, George Bush never found the weapons of mass destruction that he told us were there. But can even the most daft of the far left crowd deny that Saddam, like Mahmoud, would have spent the past seven years doing a nuclear rope-a-dope and buying time until he could blackmail the world into doing his bidding?
What a scary idea! Saddam and Mahmoud, both with nuclear weapons, both with anti-Semitic visions of power and revenge against Israel and the West.
I never was a fan of George Bush, but I did support his mismanaged war and am grateful that we have only one homicidal maniac on the loose, when there might have been two. . .or more.
