Iran’s Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei:

The American regime can expect a resounding slap and a devastating fist-blow from the Muslim nation.

Not to mention an atomic wedgie and the grandmotherly cheek-pinch. Still, Hezbollah and its foreign sponsors deserve credit, as Clifford May reminds us:

They understand the perverse psychology of the Middle East. They knew they could launch a war against Israel and then have Israel get the blame for the devastation that inevitably would follow …

Give Hezbollah, Syria, and Iran credit for this, too: They understand the equally perverse psychology of Europe, the U.N. and the “international community.” Two years ago, U.N. Security Council Resolution 1559 demanded that Hezbollah disarm. Hezbollah refused to comply. In response, the international community shrugged its collective shoulders.

Also at NRO, Victor Davis Hanson marvels at a generation on the brink of moral insanity:

That has never been more evident than in the last three weeks, as the West has proven utterly unable to distinguish between an attacked democracy that seeks to strike back at terrorist combatants, and terrorist aggressors who seek to kill civilians.

Both pieces; read ‘em.
