Video: Olmert addresses the Knesset

“These organizations are subcontractors, acting under the authorization, encouragement and funding of terror supporting organizations and opponents of peace – the axis of evil that runs from Tehran to Damascus.”

There’s a lot of “axis of evil” talk going around this morning.

Update: The AP is right, although I don’t think anyone, including Olmert, expects his newly softened conditions to be filled.

Iran calls U.S., Britain, and Israel an “axis of evil”

I would call that “so’s your old man” talk.

Good speech, very strong and very to the point
Olmert is truly coming out of Sharon’s shadow as a leader but he’s letting the public know he will fight this on his terms to the end

Do I mis-understand your comment Attila?
Israel was invaded in the north and the south. What is it you expected to happen?
Do you expect the UK and USA to stand by and not take sides in this conflict or, better yet, side with the “underdogs”???

Perhaps you do misunderstand, Babs. What I was saying was that Iran is responding to being called a part of the axis of evil by saying, “No, YOU’RE the axis of evil.” Like saying “so’s your old man.” We’re right about Iran; it’s wrong about us. I was only commenting on the childlike character of the accusation.

I’m not trolling for traffic by posting comments here, but if you had clicked on my name, you wouldn’t have been confused about where I stand.
