Iran 'most significant' threat to world: Canada PM
"Iran is the "most significant" threat to world peace and security, Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper said Friday after the US accused Tehran of plotting to kill the Saudi ambassador to Washington.

"We have no quarrel with the Iranian people, but the regime in Tehran represents probably the most significant threat in the world to global peace and security," Harper said.

This week, Canada's Foreign Minister John Baird said Ottawa and its partners were considering "consequences" for Iran over the alleged plot."
What sort of consequences will those be, I wonder. Will we stomp our feet and make "strong" statements? I'm pretty sure it won't be what I want.

For the reasonably historically informed among us, about 2% of the population, we know this is one of the fruits of the Jimmy Carter Administration. Thanks to Carter's refusal to support the Shah against the Mullah putsch, we now have this mini-Nazi Germany called the Islamic Republic of Iran.

Besides Israel, they threaten all the Gulf States. They are the proxy owners of Hamas and Hezbollah. Their agents and terrorist tentacles reach even into the US and most Western powers. They're getting ever-closer to having nuclear weapons and long-range missiles to deliver them. Now, they even attempt to assassinate in Washington, DC the Saudi Ambassador to the US.

Yup, playing history connect-the-dots can be most interesting and educational. The old saying was "For want of a nail, the horseshoe was lost, for want of a horseshoe...etc...the war was lost." For want of a real president in 1978...
