If you haven’t actually read the Iranian letter, you should. To say that it is unresponsive to the endless ultimata issuing forth from the “Five plus One” (meaning France, Britain, Germany, China, and Russia, plus the United States), and all the leaks promising “tough sanctions” if the Iranians didn’t actually take action to stop their nuclear program, would be a colossal understatement. It’s pure pablum, unworthy of a smart sixth-grader.
Ledeen would know about pablum. He rambles on:
Dark thought for the day: There is an acrid smell in the air, as if we had decided that the best outcome is to have the Israelis do our dirty work for us. And then we’ll come down on them really hard to make them stop building apartments in Jerusalem.
“Our” dirty work? Like “our” mission in Iraq? Why isn’t Ledeen in Iraq or Afghanistan helping us do “our dirty work?”
Maybe Michael Ledeen wouldn’t mind if his home was bulldozed to build apartments for Iraqi refugees.
