Today is February 11. It is the day leaders of Iran have promised something shocking, even stunning. We know they are developing nuclear weapons and missiles to deliver them, but all the Obama administration can say is that it is keeping the door open to talks while considering tougher sanctions.
Sanctions haven't worked and won't work with a fanatical religious regime. Besides, other countries won't join in, thus making whatever the U.S. and the worthless United Nations do ineffective.
So what's the alternative, you ask? Bombing the nuclear sites might prove only partially effective because the locations are scattered and deep underground. Perhaps a better strategy is to support the growing number of Iranians who oppose the regime and want it removed.
We've seen them demonstrating in the streets. Some have been killed or put in prison. No one could be worse than Mahmoud Ahmadinejad who thinks he has been ordered by Allah to eradicate Israel and fund terrorism against the United States. Let's support the new revolution in Iran!
