Bomb, Bomb, Bomb Iran

Some articles are more important than others. This one by Jeffrey Goldberg, in the Atlantic is one of those.

It has generated a large number of responses, critiques and criticisms from many well known thinkers just because it is especially unique in its rarity.

Who knows whether Israel will, with or without Obama's blessing, attack Iran? Who knows if we will?

This we know. Cheney convinced Bush that he needed to attack Iraq, and all the rest was commentary; or rather subterfuge, propaganda leading the public to get used to the idea.
Included, and a main stay in that propaganda, was that Saddam had WMD, which we now know was a lie.

Does Iran have the bomb? Most think not now, but will. When? A year from now according to SecDef Gates, or longer according to the IAEA . Is this subterfuge, propaganda to get the public used to the idea of bombing Iranian nuclear sites, either by Israel or the U.S.?

Those who forget history-------------------.

I don't equate Obama with Bush, but then I didn't expect him to escalate the war in Afghanistan, continue the policy of classifying almost anything as a secret, or keep Gitmo open either.
