The West At Twilight

"CIA Director Leon Panetta now cautiously concedes that Iran's nuclear ambitions may have a military purpose. That's odd, because the lavishly funded geniuses behind America's National Intelligence Estimate told us just two years ago that Tehran had ended its nuclear weapons program in 2003. Is that estimate no longer operative? If so, could we taxpayers get a refund?

This is a perfect snapshot of the West at twilight. On the one hand, governments of developed nations micro-regulate every aspect of your life in the interest of keeping you "safe." If you're minded to flip a pancake at speeds of more than 4 mph, the state will step in and act decisively: It's for your own good."~Mark Steyn

"The West at Twilight" *Sigh* Here I was envisioning a nice sunset on the water picture and instead you depress me! Thanks a lot!
