Bush's Iran Failure

The promise of the Iraq War was to initimidate not only the terrorists, but also cow the "Axis of Evil" into submission to international standards of decency. Ongoing suicide bombings and new recruiting for Al Qaeda reflects the failure of Iraq as a tool to fight terrorists, but even more dramatic is the fact that three years ago, Iran was led by a relatively moderate President Mohammad Khatami, who had made overtures to the West for peaceful coexistence.

But Bush went out of his way to prove that moderation would get Iran nothing, so unsurprisingly, having been declared part of the "Axis of Evil," the voters of Iran voted for a President, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, seemingly dedicated to living up to that label. This week he declared his goal to "wipe Israel off the map", which he reaffirmed yesterday.

This is success?

Worst. President. Ever.
