The Audacious Delusion of a Dope

Much has been reported and said about Barack Obama's wish to sit down and talk to Iranian Islamofascist tyrant Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

Well, have you read this rather excellent piece about that?

Liberals think the way to deal with dangerous tyrants is to send in a sensitive president who will make Ahmadinejad fall in love with him. They imagine Obama becoming Ahmadinejad's psychotherapist, like Barbra Streisand in "The Prince of Tides."

President Bush described such people perfectly with his reference to Sen. William Edgar Borah, the one who said World War II could have been avoided if only he could have talked to Hitler.

Liberals refuse to learn from history because they put their hands over their ears and tell themselves over and over again: "Hitler was different."

But the evilness he possessed was no different from the evilness possessed today by the likes of Ahmadinejad. Evil is evil. This is what liberals must come to realize. Before it's too late.

How much evil must be wrought, and for how long, with how many innocents tortured and murdered, before liberals/progressives will finally say, "Enough is enough. It's time to tell this guy to stop killing/not start to kill innocents or else we'll come and kill him so he can't kill anyone else anymore."? In other words, at what point does morality and the understanding of the difference between right and wrong kick in for liberals? If ever?

Don't expect this to happen unless Ahmadinejad attacks, say, Venezuela, Cuba, North Korea or China, to name but four socialist paradises liberals would be loathe to see anyone attack. After all, as I understand history, liberals during WWII were opposed to getting involved in beating back the Nazis until the Nazis dared to attack the socialist paradise of the Soviet Union. Yep. Ok to invade all of Europe, but they'll be damned if they let the terrible Nazis take away socialism from the Soviet Union!

Looks like the liberals are performing an historical (one could also say "hysterical") encore.

But they could at least send the following message to all tyrants:

Don't do anything stupid, you tyrants, or else we'll come over there. And it won't be to talk.
