An Interesting Point

For those who have said "There is no war on terror, it is just a bunch of different scenarios you are alleging have a common thread", the recent action in Lebanon has an interesting subtext, pointed out by Michael Barone:

the biggest blunder was made by the rulers of Iran.

Inevitably, the trouble they have stirred up in the region over the past month is bound to boomerang right back at them.

Indeed, by transferring advanced rockets and weaponry to Hezbollah, Tehran, and Damascus they have just unwittingly proven one of the Bush administration's central contentions regarding the need for pre-emptive action against rogue states in the global war on terror.

The two countries have demonstrated that they are ready and willing to share missile systems with a terrorist organization, thus strengthening the case that they must be prevented from obtaining weapons of mass destruction at all costs.

Yes, there is a unified enemy. This was pointed out before, in 2002, and was part of the national conversation before the war in Iraq.
