Reworking a Classic

Austin Bay sends word:

Jim Dunnigan and I are working on a fourth edition of A Quick and Dirty Guide to War. Today I re-worked the “Iran” chapter from the 1996 edition. In many ways I am surprised at how little has changed. Oh, there are big changes. US forces are now on the mullahs’ eastern and western borders (Afghanistan and Iraq). Yes, Iraq remains a threat to the mullahs, but not in the form of Saddam. It’s a threat because it is an emerging Arab democracy next door to the mullahs’ failing Iranian (Aryan) despotism.

Nothing follows.

but a commentator on my blog informs me the mullahs & ahmednuttyjihad are more popular than W.

Among the Left, sure.

I don't think thats true in Iran, though.

If Iraq becomes a prosperous arab representative democracy, other countries besides Iran will be quaking in their boots:

Saudi Arabia
as well as Iran

Capitalism and Representative Government are devastatingly destructive to the established order.

Your reference to aryan influence tickles a "great" event in history that would have been viewed as beyond consideration by such men as Winston Churchill, F.D.R., and Joseph Stalin.

East and West Germany reunited, the house of Krupp intact.
