I put Middle Earth Journal in hiatus in May of 2008 and moved to Newshoggers.
I temporarily reopened Middle Earth Journal when Newshoggers shut it's doors but I was invited to Participate at The Moderate Voice so Middle Earth Journal is once again in hiatus.

Ron Paul - The sane Republican from Texas

If Iran through President Ahmadinejad is indeed a threat we have one man and one moment to blame for it. The man is George W. Bush, who believes that a politician can never have too many external threats, and the moment was January 29, 2002 when Bush invented the "Axis of Evil". There is very indication that Iran was moderating up to that point and being threatened by the worlds number one bully, George W. Bush, set in motion a political movement that resulted in the election of certified nutcase Mahmoud Ahmadinejad being elected president. Ron Paul correctly tells us that President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad does not control the nuclear program.
Government power in Iran is divided, and President Ahmadinejad – the man responsible for hateful comments about Israel – does not control their nuclear policy. We should ignore him as a pariah, and deal instead with Ali Larijani, head of Iran’s National Security Council, who has made several reasonable statements about the US and shows a desire to have direct diplomatic talks.
The US should be talking to the people who are really in charge not the firebrand that is not calling the shots.

Ron Paul is always worth a read so go read the entire commentary, Avoiding War With Iran
