More On Neo-Conservative War Mongering Against Iran

This weekend we did an extensive post on a Wall Street Journal op-ed by neo-conservative Michael Ledeen, fomenting for war with Iran under the guise of citing "progress" in Iraq.

We thought we'd follow-up with this terrific column from Newsweek's Fareed Zakaria, whose insights into Middle East politics are always useful: "Stalin, Mao and . . . Ahmadinejad?"

Referring to some of the ravings of Ledeen's fellow neo-con, Norman Podhoretz--another of those idiots who got us into the war in Iraq--Zakaria asks "What planet are we on?"

He notes that comparisons of Ahmadinejad to Hitler, Stalin and Mao are just a tad overstated.

It's a good read.
