This is the most grave situation that we have faced since the end of the Cold War, absent the whole war on terror - Sen. John McCain on Iran, on Sunday's "Face the Nation"
From the Jerusalem Post: John McCain, Republican Senator from Arizona and presidential hopeful, is absolutely right about the gravity of the threat from a nuclear Iran. But does anyone notice something strange?
McCain strongly backed President George Bush in toppling Saddam Hussein, and is an unabashed hawk in the war against militant Islamism. Presumably, he cheered when Bush launched his doctrine of regime change against rogue regimes - the famed "axis of evil," of which Iran is a charter member.
Yet even McCain describes the Iran crisis as something separate from the fight against terrorism.
How can this be? What should he have said?
