Hey, maybe we should just let Iran have the entire Middle East?  Why let perfect be the enemy of the really shity?  After all, it could be worse than really shity, it could remain apocalyptically shity and unstable in perpetual civil war, with beheadings, burning people alive, rape, genocide, and women forced into sexual slavery.

I’m no fan of Iran but they’re starting to look like the second most stable and rational country in the region.  You kinda have to grade on a scale, no?
