Boston Herald: Ignore Iran's TricksTopics: Iran
The Boston Herald editorial staff appears to "get it" when it comes to Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's letter that contained not a single word about Iran's nuclear program:
A one-on-one engagement with Iran would, of course, be exactly the wrong tactic. This regime has been making war on our country since it held the 52 embassy hostages for 444 days in 1979-1980. Today it supplies weapons to Shiite militias in the south of Iraq, weapons that often end up being used against American troops. "Engaging" the mullahs solo just encourages them to think they have the United States on the run.And like the BH says, unfortunately, some people out there just don't understand this.
People like Sen. Richard Lugar (R-Ind.), chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, who has called for direct talks, as have German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier, President Carter and Sandy Berger, President Clinton's national security adviser - weak and inept losers all!
I like the BH's suggestion that Uncle Sam needs to be the bad cop - let's make that one really pissed off cop!
