I luv your blog, but I gotta disagree with your post. For two reasons which I will try to encapsulate very quickly.
1. Deterrence will have no effect on the Iranian regime. They are not the Soviets. The mullahs and Ahmadinejad think they are on a mission from Allah. if you think your objective is divinely sanctioned, you're not goign to fear death, for yourself or others. See, e.g. Muhammad Atta.
2. Isolation won't work. We tried that with Iraq, Cuba and others and it has failed everywhere it has been tried. To many parties have too much to gain from Iran to keep it isolated.
We either stand up to them now or later. This is 1938 all over again.Comment Posted By ProCynic On 5.04.2006 @ 14:05

BTW -- Love your blog. I need to put it on my blogroll.Comment Posted By ProCynic On 15.02.2006 @ 08:47
