Will We Tolerate This?

I can’t believe that we are going to tolerate this.

This type of rhetoric sounds very familiar.

Iran is currently taking the same position against us as the one we took against Iraq. Attack them first if we think they might attack us.

It will be interesting to see how we respond to this. If we deny the claim that we are going to attack, will they believe us? Or will they treat us the same way we treated Iraq when they denied having any WMD? Will we call them aggressors and condemn them if they attack Israel the same way we attacked Iraq? Or will we be sympathetic and understanding claiming that they have the same right to protect themselves as we did? What if they don’t have UN approval? Will we say they are reckless for acting unilaterally?

I don’t see us allowing this to happen. I see the White House condemning this as a rogue nation bent on destruction. Kind of puts things into perspective, doesn’t it? This is how the majority of the world now sees us. We should be embarrassed.
