Surprising Introspection from the Beeb

Although they certainly don't present the analysis self-critically:

'Death to US': Anti-Americanism examined

It may be bridge too far, but I'm inclined to view this article as part of a general European trend, including Sarkozy's promising lead in France, Merkel's strong stand in Germany, and the Italian soft left's sanity check all as data points along the curve of the EU as a whole coming to grips with the prospect of a nuclear Iran given the demographic trench they've dug for themselves. Even previously neutered Spain is beginning to see the writing on the wall.

The signs worldwide are looking up, U.S. policymakers shouldn't be stampeded by a fringe Left which has historically shown it prefers humanitarian disaster to a military success which might, due to the Left's own obstructionism, redound primarily to the benefit of Republicans.
