Wow, A rare back-to-back post!!!

My $.02 on the National Intelligence Estimate saying that Iran doesn't have a nuclear weapon program.

1) Hallellujah! - People, a lot of those reading this live in NYC, if any of these doomsday scenarios happen, we're in a lot of damn trouble. Nice to find out one of them has been made less likely.

2) There's something to be said for Bush's totally lunatical approach getting Iran to back down from a confrontation. That said, let's not pretend that total isolation is the only approach. There is engagement also, and the costs are much less. Attempting to isolate extremists does not often work (see Castro, Fidel).
