What is so clear from these documents, what some of us were saying all along but were often criticized for allegedly simply expressing the Israeli view, is that the threat of a nuclear Iran is indeed the greatest threat to civilization.
It's another WikiLeaks week: thousands of meant-to-be-secret diplomatic cables have been made available to a handful of news organizations. And the first conclusion? This stuff is complicated.
For Iran, WikiLeaks should make it clear -- it has no real friends, in the region or elsewhere. Trust is in short supply. Going forward, this is likely to affect its strategic calculus vis-à-vis the U.S. and its nuclear program.
Now that the WikiLeaks reveal widespread Arab support for the military option against Iran's nuclear facilities to be put on the table, the time has come to reassess United States policy toward the Ahmadinejad regime.
Once again, an American institution is dissing Russia. It is as if we don't understand that Russia has ways of dissing us.

Whatever the international community made of Ahmadinejad's state visit, the country's Shiites gave the trip near-unanimous support. The Iranian President wasn't just lauded upon arrival -- he was virtually deified.
Ahmadinejad's bluster and triumphalism during his visit to Lebanon may have created momentary euphoria in his disenfranchised audiences, but celebrations and speechifying do not reflect reality nor do they provide a pathway to needed change.
Upholding human rights is not "meddling" in another country's internal affairs. It is a universal responsibility, especially when the Iranian people have been demanding it themselves, sacrificing their freedom and their lives for it.
Hezbollah and Lebanon have always been nothing more than a side-kick mistress for the Iranian regime, enjoying the occasional jewelry and nights of amore, but not knowing what it's like to be married.
