Thomas Sowell on Democrats damage to our credibility

Thomas Sowell drives the 16-penny nail into the wall frame with one hammerstroke when talking about how the "temper tantrum politics" of the Left and their rabid resentment and hatred of Bush have weakened our position in dealing with a nuclear Iran.

It would be far better if the threat of force were credible enough that actual force would not have to be used. But divisive politics have undermined the credibility of any such threat. That can narrow the choices to killing people in Iran or leaving ourselves and our posterity at the mercy of hate-filled and suicidal fanatics with nukes.
