After years of refusing to see Iranâ€™s aggressive intentions, most sensible observers of things Middle Eastern now recognize that the most important terrorist organizations, from Islamic Jihad to Hezbollah and Hamas, are essentially Iranian proxies.
Duh. As if we here at DP haven’t been noticing this rather obvious fact for years now – which makes GWB’s obsession with Iraq look even crazier in hindsight than it did when he started out with it.
Of course Ledeen has been predicting Iran’s imminent demise for almost as long as I’ve been calling for the destruction of the Mad Mullah’s regime, and he’s likely no more right now than he has been all along.
In fact, I’d say that Obama’s election guarantees the survival of the Iranian regime – not that George Bush was ever any threat to it either.
