I haven’t posted much on Ahmadinejad’s speech to the UN. Why? Because it is all so familiar; as Meryl Yourish says, we’ve heard this before from Adolf Hitler.
What will it take for the West to act? Open evidence of a nuclear weaponisation programme? (Wait. We’ve already got that). Open declarations of genocidal intent? (Got that one too…) How about…IAEA evidence of ballistic missiles being retrofitted to carry nuclear warheads? (That one too…)
Okay, how about Israel being attacked with nuclear weapons? Honestly. If Obama is president…nothing but words; if McCain is president, then at least the US and perhaps Britain under Cameron will go to war to disarm Iran. But I doubt the rest of the world will shed any tears for Israel – much better to blame the victims for bringing it upon themselves.
So when will the West act? Probably when Rome is bombed by Iranian nuclear terrorists…and the reaction? War, right?
Nah. They’ll try and surrender.
