ONLY BIRTH PANGS. The last time I pointed out that Iran's evil dictators were offering sound criticism of U.S. foreign policy, The Weekly Standard took me to task, but still when you're right, you're right. Ali Khamenei says: "The U.S. is following a policy of creating insecurity, crisis, and war in the region. It must know that the more it expands insecurity, the more it will arouse the anger of nations against it and make the world insecure for itself." This is true, is it not? The theory that Iran stands "alongside all oppressed nations" seems less plausible.
