Steyn on Iran

Four years into the "war on terror," the Bush administration has begun promoting a new formulation: "the long war." Not a reassuring name. In a short war, put your money on tanks and bombs--our strengths. In a long war, the better bet is will and manpower--their strengths, and our great weakness. Even a loser can win when he's up against a defeatist. A big chunk of Western civilization, consciously or otherwise, has given the impression that it's dying to surrender to somebody, anybody. Reasonably enough, Islam figures: Hey, why not us? If you add to the advantages of will and manpower a nuclear capability, the odds shift dramatically.

This humble blogger would only add to this scenario that the American people are on the verge of handing back control of Congress to the political party that is the embodiment of weakness and appeasement... the heralds and the champions of multiculturalism... those military loathing, 9/11 denying... Democrats.

Have a nice day.
