Now That’s Must See TV

The President of Iran, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is asking to have a televised debate with George W. Bush.

Ahmadinejad is clearly off his rocker — his increasingly irrational demands are the textbook examples of someone whose sense of self-aggrandizement is boundless. While such behavior wouldn’t be unprecedented for the ruler of some banana republic, the fact that Ahmadinejad’s Iran is perilously close to obtaining nuclear weapons should give everyone pause. It’s bad enough having a state sponsor of terrorism have the most deadly weapons on the planet — it’s even worse when the leader of that terrorist state has declared his intention to wipe Israel off the map and has threatened the United States.

We can’t just assume that Ahmadinejad is a harmless nut — if there’s even the slimmest of chances that he intends to follow though with his threats the results would be beyond catastrophic. Sooner or later the world must deal strongly with Iran, and each day in which the world community fails to do so slowly reduces our possible suite of options.
