Non-public-blogging, JKn’s private journaling continues.
Another headline re Iran:
Iran cleric warns EU, UN against backing Britain
Again, spontaneous emotions work to the advantage of the ruling machos. Ahmedinejad, meet Bush; Bush, Ahmedinejad. Sharks vs. the Jets. The embassy attack may even work to Ahmedinejad’s advantage in distracting us from the ineffectual attempts to retard Iran’s nuclear power & weapons programs.
Sanctions against Iran (the people) will not help, only solidify the Islamofascists’ control. “Radio Free Iran” – is there such a thing? Rather I should say that, Of course there is – it’s called Twitter!
It will be very interesting to see how the Islamic Resurgence plays out over the years, with Oil and Nukes at their disposal.
It’s tempting, of course, to give in to the visceral reaction to these headlines – to the Crusading impulse. But that, also, only plays into Ahmedinejad & Co.’s hands.
Decency is not a natural state – and it has little place in revolutionary times. Yet it is the Human thing, the thing that (I feel) needs to be preserved.
