Dress Rehearsal for War

Ahmadinejad's visit revives the War Party's sinking fortunes

By Justin Raimondo

"Just when you thought the War Party was down, and nearly out, President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad did them the favor of paying a visit to New York, the town that trademarked rudeness. This gave the usual suspects an opportunity to rehearse, so to speak, for the coming war with Iran......

The extraordinary din of catcalls and pure hatred that greeted Ahmadinejad upon his arrival in our country is like the Two-Minutes Hate in George Orwell's 1984, a novel that continues to remind us of the author's preternatural prescience. As a prelude to the bombing of Iran and the commencement of the Third Gulf War, this week's orgy of vitriol sets the tone for what is to come. "
