Just a fantastic story all around.

This here is yet another example as to why I think the Bush administration is dangerous. They're running around saying that we need to stop the proliferation of WMD, striking preemptively if necessary. That's such a dangerous gamble, because in cases like this, we have individuals as well as nations who think that because of our aggressive posture, they need the very weapons that we're trying to keep out of their hands in order to protect themselves from us. Our actions end up helping to create the situation we're supposedly trying to avoid.

If the government really does want to keep weapons out of the hands of "evildoers," then they're looking pretty fucking stupid right now. And if they're actually trying to incite an arms race, especially since we were all so keen on the Cold War, then they're getting exactly what they want.
