‘Iran Is Playing with Fire’

Conservative daily Die Welt writes:

“Ten years ago former US President George W. Bush coined the phrase “axis of evil” when he gave his State of the Union speech on Jan. 29, 2002, describing Iraq, Iran and North Korea as regimes who aimed to threaten the West with terror and weapons of mass destruction. In Europe, no one wanted to accept this culturally antiquated moral-religious speech, also finding the term ‘axis’ confusing, as it implied these nations were forming an alliance. … Today, Iran, Syria and North Korea do advise and support each other about rockets and even nuclear questions.”

Bush was right in his diagnosis. Dictators remain dictators, evil and hostile. One shouldn’t tolerate them, and must instead fight them with all possible means. Especially Iran and North Korea.”
