Good news

From the moment the United States and al Qaeda began fighting in Afghanistan, the terrorists were looking for a chance to re-create images similar to those of American troops being dragged through the streets of Mogadishu in 1993 or Walter Cronkite calling the Vietnam War a stalemate in 1968. It was hoped that such a moment would cause a dramatic drop in support for the war among the American people and force the United States out of Iraq. It did not happen.
It's also a defeat for the media elite.

Now, Iran seems willing to try to succeed where al Qaeda failed. Bin Laden was dismissed as crazy and a mere pest. I think that Ahmadinejad, et al. will be taken more seriously.
