    To be honest, he's probably better off keeping his mouth shut when it comes to Iran. His "axis of evil" comments certainly won't help the rise of the moderates, and they are starting to gain an initiative there.

    I know people tried to celebrate St. Valentine's Day and couldn't. I think a side benefit of the war against Iraq is that countries like Iran are going to kick Al Qaeda out. We convicted 8 people of terrrorism for raising money for Hezbollah. And Hezbollah in Gaza said they will not retaliate against America for it. They're fight is with Israel. To me that's a sign, Middle Eastern extremists are afraid America will attack them if they attack us.
