"it's nuclear program serves precisely these ambitions".
umm, what nuclear program? not even US intelligence sources believe Iran is pursing nuclear weapons. Ironic that in an article about how the Bush administration lied it's way into war with Iraq that there isn't some skepticism on the so-called Iranian WMDs.... after all, it's the same strategy, just a different country!
Actually, Hamas has been democratically elected. Apparently it's all well and good for the western world to name a democratically elected group a terrorist organisation if they don't agree with the results of free and fair elections.
