US v.Iran « Previous | |Next »
April 18, 2006

Informed foreboding about the US wanting to hit Iran. What was once previously dismissed as posturing and sabre rattling is now being interpreted as a coordinated campaign to prepare for a military strike on Iran.

An interpretation of President Bush's March foreign policy speech at The George Washington University in the light of Iran.

William Kirstol over at the Weekly Standard argues for the US to use more stick, greater clarity and resolution in dealing with Iran. The diplomacy appears to be exhausted. It's time to bomb with a preventive strike. The Weekly Standard is talking in terms of a military strike plus regime change. The hawkish neocons pundits -- Bill Kristol, Victor Davis Hanson, Charles Krauthammer, Mark Steyn, etc. etc. -- are now in full-on war mode with their "swift, massive, devastating force".

Decoding the White House spin. Billmon has a theory about the flight forward strategy to deal with crisis. He argues that regime change in Iran may well be the only way of out of an increasingly intolerable situation created by the failure of the neocons' Iraq gambit.
