The ability and tendency to under-estimate the enemy just because he appears to be less technically proficient must be deplored. Ahmadinejad is but an outspoken representative of the regime, which began way before his time, or the revolution. It began with the strategic alliance of militant Islam with Nazism. Ayatullah Hummeini was a great admirer of adolf Hitler, and has fashioned his regime on totalitarian lines similar to Nazi Germany. Substitute Hitler Jugend for the Basiji youth, and you have it all. Same motivations, same supremacist ideology, just a slighter darker skin color. But then Hitler wasnt terribly Aryan-looking was he? in fact, hajj Amin Al Husseini (does that ring a bell these days) who met with Hitler and lived in Eichman's fouth division for the Final Solution was more Aryan looking that Hitler.

And who exactly will stop Iran? Obama? With harsh words? Who stopped the Osirak? and who brought down the Syrian nuclear-enrichment plant, was that Bush or Clinton or the UN? As long as a threat appears to be directed against the Jews, no one minds. They get all upset when they realize the jews were just the appetizer, the signal that the West would rather talkand appease than act.
