In two of her e-mails Barbara, an American DBI-visitor who regularly sends me highly useful feedback, wrote some lines that would make wonderful quotes. I wanted to use them in one of my comments ( she gave me her permission ), but for lack of time I will just quote them here, they are funny and their message is clear even without any context:
About Iran: "I think the only solution is to send Ahmadinejad on a hunting trip with Dick Cheney!"
About the US and Iran: "We have "Stupid" in the White House and "Nutcase" in Iran, sounds like trouble to me."
