“Durban II” Walkout

Iranian tyrant Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s invective against the “Zionist Entity” didn’t go over too well in Geneva. A huge number of European diplomats walked out in disgust. The scene must be seen to be fully appreciated.

President Barack Obama was right to boycott this hate-fest.

Wonderful! Good for a belly-laugh, and an extra tip for you, MJT.

He's boycotted the hatefest but is not boycotting the hater. Obama's insistence on pursuing diplomatic relations with Iran strikes me as naive and dangerous. Clearly he's trying out some kind of high concept, trying to undermine Ahmedinijad with a charm offensive that's aimed at Iranian moderates. Ahmedinijad, for his part, clearly doesn't give a damn what the west thinks. He wants to be seen as the real leader of the Muslim world, and his performance was geared towards Muslims. Obama's grovelling will only play to this strategy, and undermine moderate Arab regimes.

But they don't want to really wipe out Israel, that was all a big misunderstanding. And they sure don't want to build an atomic bomb. Anyone who falls for their line is whistling past the graveyard.

Does Ahmanutjob not understand that Israelis and Palestinians are both of the Caucasian persuasion?

"Obama's grovelling will only play to this strategy"

Castro and Chavez drawing up their wish list.
But who needs history's lessons when you're "new"?

Beyond sad; pathetic---and foolishly dangerous.

Iran? Tick, tock...

See, an enemy is just a friend you haven't gotten to know yet. If you're really nice, apologize for anything other people have done and give your new friend money, you'll be popular. EVERY kid wants to be popular.

I'm glad I'm not young today.
