Good sense from a surprising source

Okay, which blog said this yesterday on the subject of Iran:

If you read nothing else today, read the New Republic's backgrounder on the murderous fanaticism of the Iranian president. Read how, during the Iraq war, Iran's clerics sent

Iranian children, some as young as twelve years old, to the front lines. There, they marched in formation across minefields toward the enemy, clearing a path with their bodies.
What words exist to describe the depravity of human beings toward each other? Seize the apocalyptic destruction of lives and then just contemplate these monsters getting hold of a nuclear weapon.

And ask yourself why it is that we haven't spent so much more rage on the prospect of these monster raving loonies getting a bomb. And ask yourself how it is that so much more time and effort is spent abusing the living bejesus out of the US, and not these ghastly theocratic nightmares. How anyone could compare even the worst democratically elected government with these deeds is incomprehensible.

Well said. And this on Tuesday about Chris Carter and Japanese whaling:

"Mr Carter said anti-whaling nations struggled to comprehend Japan's rationale for continuing whaling." Chris Carter is a clown. The man is actually an idiot. This is a kneejerk comment. But that's typical. Carter is always the first to be pompous and high-handed. Does it occur to Mr Carter that maybe Japan could just as obtusely state it doesn't understand the rationale for continuing to oppose whaling?

Let ['X' Blog] clear up the mystery: Japan hunts whales because some Japanese like to eat them. There, understand now?

Yes, I do. So who do you think 'X' Blog is? Hint: It's one written on behalf of a seniour Cabinet Minister in the Clark-led Government. Surprised? I sure was. Whoever the new author of 'X' Blog is, he/she is in danger of making too much sense for their own good.
