Ah, the good old days
Remember back in the 70s and 80s and 90s when there was no terrorism and the Middle East was this wonderful place where everyone loved America? You don't remember those fun times? No worries, Richard Haass is here to remind you: "Iraq Is Not Winnable"
SPIEGEL: And then there are Iraq and the Middle East. You just published an article in the journal Foreign Affairs in which you say that the situation is enough "to make one nostalgic for the old Middle East."

Haass: The old Middle East -- an era which I believe has only recently ended -- was one in which the United States enjoyed tremendous dominance and freedom of maneuver. Oil was available at fairly low prices, the region was largely at peace. I believe largely because of the American decision to go to war in Iraq and how it has been carried out, as well as the emphasis on promoting democracy and a lack of any serious energy policy, the Middle East has considerably grown worse. It's one of history's ironies that the first war in Iraq, a war of necessity, marked the beginning of the American era in the Middle East and the second Iraq war, a war of choice, has precipitated its end.
While I agree with his prediction that things will get worse in the Middle East, I think his nostalgia for "the old Middle East" is quite silly.

Well, as long as they agree
Olmert and Bush Agree: No Nukes for Iran. No word on how they'll go about achieving this goal.
Bush urged the international community to take action. Sanctions threatened by the United Nations Security Council if Iran did not meet its ultimatum to end uranium enrichment by the end of August never materialized after Iran ignored the deadline.

“If they continue to move forward with the program,” said Bush, “there has to be a consequence. And a good place to start is working together to isolate the country. And my hope is, is that there are rational people inside the government that recognize isolation is not their country’s interest.”
So much blah-blah, so little time...

How much for that dirty bomb in the window?
Not surprising or new, but worth keeping in mind: Al Qaeda is seeking nuclear kit for attacks on the West.
Al Qaeda is trying to acquire the technology that would enable it to use a nuclear device to attack Western targets including Britain, a senior British official said on Monday.

"We know the aspiration is there. We know attempts to gather materials are there, we know that attempts to gather technology are there," the senior Foreign Office official told reporters.

The comments at a briefing came days after the head of Britain's domestic spy agency said Muslim extremists were plotting at least 30 major terrorist attacks in Britain which could involve chemical and nuclear devices.

The Foreign Office official, asked whether there was any doubt that Al Qaeda wants to gather nuclear material for use against Western targets, said: "No doubt at all."
