Axis of Evil Revisited

Remember when the soft-on-terror crowd complained when the president labeled Iran, Iraq, and North Korea as the Axis of Evil? Let’s see: Iran has a fanatical president who denies the Holocaust and brags about the country’s efforts to acquire nuclear weapons. Iraq is overrun with bloodthirsty Islamists and Saddam-era thugs who will stop at nothing to drive the Americans out and crush that nation’s fragile democracy. North Korea, basically a country-sized cult run by a megalomaniac, says it has joined the nuclear club, and even its closest ally, China, is dismayed.

Conclusion? George W. Bush has the gift of understatement.
