Feels soooo good to be Right (and correct)

What I said early last year:

Denizens of the far-left crowed when a recent National Intelligence Estimate concluded that Iran halted its nuclear-weaponization program in 2003. Bush's could no longer use Tehran's "nuclear arms-seeking mullahs" as a bugaboo with which to hype possible military action in Iran.

As I stated when the NIE was released, only a fool would believe that Iran is not trying to build nuclear weapons. First of all, the Iranians are busily spinning uranium like nobody's business, and Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has delivered dozens of speeches in which he's stated that it is his country's destiny to have nuclear weapons. As Barney Fife might say, 2 and 2 makes 4.

News today:

Iran's newly revealed uranium enrichment plant is a heavily guarded, still-unfinished underground facility in the arid mountains near the holy city of Qom that will be able to produce nuclear fuel — or the payload for atomic warheads, Western intelligence officials and diplomats said Friday.

The only folks on earth who truly understand the threat posed by Iran's nukes are the Israelis. Indeed, compare Bibi Netanyahu's realist UN General Assembly address to B. Hussein Obama's Utopian kiss-ass-fest before the same body.

Obama's "let's talk 'bout it" window of diplomacy vis-à-vis Iran's mullah's is rapidly closing. Bibi's speech gives us every indication that things in Persia are about to come to a violent head.

Bill Clinton lamented that he was never really "tested" with a true international crisis. Well, Obama's about to get a true international crisis, less than a year after he took office, and it'll be a test like none recent presidents have seen. I only pray he has enough you-know-whats to handle it.

UPDATE (from

Iran Lied, Our Government Knew It, and Pretended Otherwise

Wow. Since January, we've sought re-engagement with Iran, soft-pedaled criticism of a brutal crackdown of Iranian civilians, and scuttled missile defense ...

... and now we learn that they've been hiding a second nuclear facility the whole time, and that the U.S. government and its allies have known about this facility for a number of years, and we've pretended, in pursuing this re-engagement, that they could be trusted. And for months, we've made outreach after outreach, all aimed at establishing a relationship of trust with a government that lied to us, and continues to lie to us.

Way to go, Mr. President. Although I guess the Iranians' disinterest in the embassy Fourth of July parties makes more sense now, huh?
