INTERESTING ARTICLES ON IRAN

Kevin just posted an interview with Bill O'Reilly and Mitt Romney. In that interview O'Reilly talked about how Iran is training people, and supplying rebels with weapons with the intent of disrupting our democritization efforts in Iraq.

Most of the time in big media when I hear or read about Iraq it is portrayed as a quagmire that we have no way to win. And if Iraq is a quagmire, we don't even want to mess with Iran (which the critics are saying is an even bigger threat than Iraq ever was), and we REALLY don't want to mess with N. Korea. The administration has botched the war so badly (say the critics) that our nation is less safe now than it was on Sept 12, 2001.

After the midterm elections we are definitely going to be hearing about how a course correction is necessary in Iraq, even if that means we begin withdrawing our troops according to a scheduled timetable.

The critics ridicule statements by Dick Cheney that no matter what happens in the midterm elections it is "full speed ahead" in Iraq. How naive! How pitifully ignorant of the administration to be so blinded to reality!

But what if the democritization efforts in Iraq aren't nearly as misguided as the critics would have us believe? What if, despite the mistakes we've made, we're actually doing okay from a global perspective on the war on terror?

I just wanted to point out a couple of interesting articles to faithful readers of Texans for Mitt Romney. Both are on commentary magazine and can be found at the following links:

The authors argue that the leverage points we have on Iran are much stronger than most Americans know or believe. They also argue that the Iranian leadership is much more afraid of success in Iraq, and America, and their own people than most Americans believe. Furthermore the population in Iran (and N. Korea) supports the government far less than a hard left wing democrat in the northeast supports the GOP.

One of the things I like most about Mitt Romney is his belief that America has the competence, the know how, and the ability to still do great things around the world. These two articles, although written by people who may or may not be supporters of my man Mitt, at least give us reasons to believe that America isn't in as big of a quagmire as the MSM would have us believe.

But it sure would be nice if we had an administration, and congressional leadership that could articulate their positions persuasively, instead of giving us tripe like "Stay the course!" If only we had someone with the intellectual mojo of Bill Clinton, but without the character flaws. If only we had someone with the charm and optimism of Reagan.

We need someone like Mitt Romney in the White House.
