When you think Nobel Prize, you think BIG ideas (subscription):
New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson said Wednesday that America should use diplomacy and sanctions instead of threats to convince Iran to give up its nuclear ambitions.
Cause that has always worked so well in dealing with fanatics.
The Democratic presidential candidate, speaking at the Center for National Policy in Washington, said the Bush administration has treated Iran with “suspicion and hostile, incendiary rhetoric” that has encouraged Iran to speed up its nuclear weapons quest.
Oh yeah, now we’re the cause of Iran seeking nuclear weapons. Has Bill Richardson even paid any attention to the Middle East situation over the last thirty years? Ah, never mind, let’s just nominate him for another Nobel Prize and call it a day.
