Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I don't agree on your stance about Britain's role in creating Israel; the public opinion in the UK has always been quite pro-palestinian, and the establishment seconded this because they always saw Israel as the US operation it actually is.

This said, Ahmadinejad is being criminally stupid in his poker game. He feels emboldened by the quagmire that Bush created next door, and free of any balance now that the main regional enemy, Iraq, is gone for good. However, these are gratuitous kicks to the European governments, the only people standing between him and a full-scale confrontation with the US. He's making it difficult for Paris and Berlin to help him, and I don't really understand why... unless he really is another little Adolf.

Don't you ever miss those old, predictable Soviet leaders...?
