Media now says Iran is dangerous

Ted Koppel produced a television special telling us how dangerous Iran is! Ted's not alone. If you open almost any newspaper or news magazine, you will see story after story of the Iran threat.

So…Let’s see if I got this straight. Iran is a grave threat.. Iraq was not a grave threat and should not have been invaded.

Hmmmm…. Well lets take a look at the Iraq threat at the time of the invasion and the Iran threat now.

Nuclear capabilities. Iraq was developing nuclear capabilities long before Iran was. Thankfully, Israel set them back a couple years with an air raid..

Nuclear weapons. Iran says they aren't developing these weapons. We now know that Iraq was.

Use of WMDs. Iraq has used them before. There is no evidence that Iran has ever used WMDs.

Invading sovereign nations. Iraq has invaded sovereign nations. Iran has not.

Insane Fanatic Islamic Leaders that want to kill the US and Israel. Well Iran and Iraq can both claim this great achievement.

Yes, Iran was such a bigger threat than Iraq.

Isn’t it just a bit odd that right after the Democrats take control of the Congress all of a sudden we are hearing so much about how much of a threat to peace Iran presents.

Oh.. Don’t get me twisted now. I agree!!! Full heartedly, Iran must be dealt with, and have been blogging about the Iran threat right here for quite a while now ... but when you look at both Iraq and Iran, can't it be said that Iraq needed to be dealt with also? I think so.

I have just one question to the main stream media and the democrats. What was our big mistake in Iraq? Was it removing Saddam Hussein, or trying to provide the people of Iraq a democratically elected government that would protect their freedoms instead of murdering them?
