Brian Beutler:
...if an Iranian leader with great visibility--say, Mahmoud Ahmedinejad--had been videotaped singing "Bomb, bomb, bomb, bomb bomb America," (which, yes, sounds foolish but you get the idea) it wouldn't be taken lightly here. Fox News would treat it as a sign that the regime was unstable and dangerous and, voila, we'd allow it to bring us a step closer to war.
In fact, we've already seen this kind of thing over and over again with China. Some two-bit Chinese General points out the obvious -- that China's nuclear deterrent exists for a reason -- and suddenly the entire wingnutosphere freaks the hell out and starts gearing for war.

But remember everyone, Ahmedinejad is an anti-semite, so clearly we're on the side of angels.
