Instead of answering their extremism with our own belligerence, it seems to me we need to leverage the mullahs' fanaticism against them. A bombing attack on a soveriegn nation would do more to poison the younger generation's view of us than anything Ahmadinejad can say. One day soon, that generation will have a huge influence on the Middle East. It's time we realized that. Cheney is a one-man threat to exploiting that central strategic advantage.
I really wonder why Dick Cheney loves war so much. It's easy to say it's just because he ran Halliburton and will be very rich from these wars when he leaves public office. But this seems like more. He's never come across like he's trying to trigger Armageddon like the religous fanatics. Maybe it's just the worst case of sexual repression in history...
The simple fact is that it's our threatening behavior that gives the mullahs political credibility in spite of the fact everything's falling apart over there. If we would just shut up, the people would soon toss those maniacs out of office on their own.
