And We Didn't Even Have to Bomb Them!

It's Michael Ledeen, so this could very well be bullshit:

The death spiral of the Islamic Republic seems to be gathering momentum.

Perhaps this would be a good time to recall Ledeen's reaction to the Obama Administration's decision last year to not put its thumb on the scales of Iranian politics? Behold:

This is pure appeasement, part of Obama's begging for a schmooze. ...

It's worse than Jimmy Carter. It's all appeasement, all the time, from South America to Central Europe, from the Middle East to South Asia. And it's a guarantee of greater violence, bigger crises, and more American dead.

As Churchill said to Chamberlain, so it should be said to Obama: You had a choice between war and dishonor. You chose dishonor, and you will have war.
