    Let's face it, Elbaradei has his flaws, but he was right about weapons in Iraq and the US and Israel were wrong, for which they never forgave him and tried to kick him out. And he's right in this instance. The notion that you can fix problems in the world by bombing sovereign countries whenever we don't like what they are doing is an insanity, a criminal insanity. Of course, we don't want the Iranians to have nuclear weapons, but there are established international ways to deal with that. It means setting up a new set of nuclear rules of the road that will mean the countries who think they are the "good guys" are going to have to accept some restraints, too.
