Ol' "Mad Jad" Mahmoud Ahmadinejad says that the solution to what everybody seems to think is a grave Middle East crisis is to destroy Israel. "Although the main solution is for the elimination of the Zionist regime, at this stage an immediate cease-fire must be implemented." The scary thing is that this is what passes for moderation from Iran.
It is quite amazing to me that, after a sufficient number of blood-curdling threats are made, people cease to pay attention to the threats. Was it like this with Hitler in the 1930's ? The problem is, of course, that Mad Jad, like Hitler before him, is not the least bit crazy -- he's just convinced his country and religion have a mission, and it doesn't matter how many die to fulfill it. Not crazy, just too dangerous to be suffered to live any longer.
My solution to the Middle East "crisis" is really much simpler and less bloody than Mad Jad's. Simply kill Mad Jad and the top 100 or so Mullahs in Iran, and the real crisis created by the deadly intersection of bumptious Persian nationalism with religious millenarianism will be solved rather neatly.
