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.

Poking the Monkey

George W. Bush and lunatic neocon likudniks that guide his foreign policy have spent the last 6+ years poking various monkeys. They have responded by trying to develop sticks to poke back. While that may be insane Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad demonstrated a bit of insane monkey poking himself.
Iran Asserts Expansion Of Nuclear Operation
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said yesterday that his country had begun producing nuclear fuel on an industrial scale, an accomplishment that, if verified, would significantly advance Iran's nuclear program.
Now that's poking a monkey that's just looking for an excuse to use a much bigger stick. It set off the wingnutery in the blogosphere: But did seem to result in a restrained reaction from the US Government.
But U.S. and British officials, along with international nuclear experts, cast doubt on the announcement, noting that the Iranians did not offer evidence to support the assertion and suggesting privately that the remarks were tailored toward generating national pride in a program that the U.N. Security Council has ordered Iran to suspend.
I have some advice to Mr Ahmadinejad; one insane world leader yelling "bring it on" is one too many - two is way too much.
