Even A Stopped Watch Is Correct Twice a Day

Sometimes even evil men get it right. This from Iranian millenarian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad:

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad scorned the UN Security Council's imposing sanctions on Iran, telling a crowd Tuesday that Iran had humiliated the United States in the past and would do so again.
Declaring war on the United States 27 years ago. US Embassy hostages in Tehran. Khobar Towers. Marine Barracks in Lebanon. Iranian IEDs killing US soldiers in Iraq. Nuclear weapons programs.

The best the US can do is a watered-down UN resolution and James Baker's recommendation to ask Iran to stop the mayhem while their soldiers cut and run.

Mahmoud's assessment is more accurate than a Reuters photo.

Ahmadinejad continues, this time with reference to the UN:
Speaking in the southwestern provincial capital of Ahvaz, Ahmadinejad said the Security Council's resolution of Dec. 23 was invalid and had left the world body's reputation in tatters.
Strictly speaking, by December 23 the UN's reputation was already in as many shreds as the Oil-for-Fraud documents in the UN offices shortly after the US Congress issued a subpoena for them.
