Juan Cole on Iraq

Juan Cole writes a concise summary of how our war of choice in Iraq has strengthened Iran, one of those pesky "axis of evil" countries:

"Far from weakening or overthrowing the ayatollahs, Bush has ensconced and strengthened them. Indeed, by chasing after imaginary weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, he may have lost any real opportunity to prevent Iran from developing a nuclear weapon should it decide to do so."

Palmer, your Realpolitik is looking a lot more preferable than the foolish neocon idealism that created this mess...
