On Wednesday, Condoleezza Rice announced, in so many words, that the US will indefinitely suspend military action against Iran in favor of "diplomacy," giving the theocracy a fresh green light to fund Islamic terrorism and develop nuclear weapons.
Despite millennia of evidence to the contrary, the Bush administration clings to the belief that compromising with evil "works," and has therefore made the following offer to Iran: Temporarily stop your nuclear program, and we'll legitimize your theocratic dictatorship by having direct diplomatic talks with you—for the first time in 27 years. During such talks, the administration would offer them further legitimacy in the form of "incentives" to permanently halt their nuclear activities. When we realize that we've been had—that the Iranians are taking our money and still pursuing a nuclear weapons program—we will resort to the ultimate punishment: " tough U.N. Security Council action, possibly including economic or other sanctions." . . .
