Reader comment on item: Ahmadinejad - Hostage Taker?

Submitted by Douglas G. Lowenstein (United States), Nov 13, 2006 at 02:55

Begin was a terrorist as well,

I am not falling victim to "relativism" as so eloquently articulated by Allan Bloom in The Closing of the American Mind - and I am current on my realist non-fiction (America Alone, and Why they Hate) - critcally important works - but we all know about 1979, and leaders of Iran today, regardless of their involvment in that hostage crisis is unimportant - it does not change the fact that he is a nut close to getting a bomb and we can't allow that too happen - and there are so many reasons to "step-up" and slow down or destroy Iran's nuclear capability - but a rally-cry of he was a hostage taker?...it just seems weak Dan - but like I say - you know more than me - so I will continue to read you on a regular basis - this one just seemed a bit "shrill" and sounding like Hiliary Clinton...

"Rally-cry"? Read it again. It's a dispassionate analysis that predicts not much will change. Try to focus on what I write, not what you imagine I write, please.
