On Jan. 7, this fine newspaper had a cartoon about the "new sheriff in town."

The cartoon is misleading in that the "old sheriff" had gotten Iran stop making nuclear weapons and the "new sheriff" has gotten Iran to start making them again. The "new sheriff" has also caused many in the Middle East who didn't side with Iran to side with Iran.

The aforementioned problems were easy to predict and easy to prevent.
