Saban and the Beirut Bombing

Here’s the Research Director of the Saban Center at Brookings today, writing on the bombing of Iran’s embassy in Beirut:

‘It is tempting to enjoy Iran getting a taste of its own medicine, but the growing violence risks further destabilizing the Middle East and harming U.S. interests there.’

In other words, if not for the fact that anti-Iran terror like the Beirut bombing poses risks to the region and U.S. interests, then we could all just sit back and enjoy the fact that Iran’s embassy in Beirut was car-bombed and some of its staff – including its cultural attaché – were killed. Hip hip hooray!

I wonder what the reaction would be if someone suggested the same thing of terror attacks directed at the U.S. – i.e., that the U.S. was merely ‘getting a taste of its own medicine’ and good for that.

Wait, there’s Ward Churchill and he no longer has a job because of it.
