The Power of Ideas

Fire of Liberty

Here's a good piece in the Hill by Dick Armey. According to the former House majority leader(1995-2003), the time is ripe for this nation to put aside any thoughts of diplomatic engagement with Iran and start using our various financial assets, radio, Internet, television, instant messaging, intellectual heft, and everything else that we used against the Soviets during the Cold War. I know such will be a great surprise to Obama but President Reagan used such assets as well as the fact that the Soviet premiers were dying left and right well before he ever had a sit down over nukes. For me, Armey's ideas(The props really go to Michael Ledeen for raising the idea in The War Against The Terror Masters) are will have a greater impact than a meeting at a peace table.
