Iran President-Elect Vows to Pursue Nukes

President-elect Mahmoud Ahmadinejad vowed Sunday to pursue a peaceful nuclear program — an effort the United States maintains is really a cover for trying to build atomic bombs.

When our subtle and nuanced foreign policy consists of (a) declaring war on a tactic (terrorism) than can be deployed as easily by folks we like as by folks we don't, and (b) pushing regime change and staking all on a process-focused abstraction (democracy), what do we say about this?

Not much.

Oh, and congrats, Mr. Preznit. You had a key role in electing the Islamic hardliner. Your next war appears to be on schedule, but... who's gonna fight it?
