I have said it before

Reader comment on item: In Iraq, Stay the Course - but Change It
in response to reader comment: The only realistic, sensible article I have seen recently on Iraq.

Submitted by Yuval Brandstetter MD (Israel), Oct 30, 2006 at 16:42

In many talkbacks I have said the US went into Iraq to dismantle a dangerous regime. The job is done. Now look for the next dangeous regime, where is it hiding? Under a rock? no. Is it a bird? no. It is right next to Iraq, and it is far more dangeous than iraq ever was.

So, unless the US is actually interested in having the Iran regime carry out its promise to wipe the Jews of the face of the earth, as the appetiser before the main meal, Iran should figure largely as the regime to be dismantled, defanged, and left to cure itself of its own illness.

Alternatively, give Israel a free hand, a friendly shove, to do the job.
