Nothing to See Here

More

I know Petey thinks monomania is an unattractive quality in a blogger, but it does seem to me that somebody should pay attention as the Iran war drums keep beating. Here's Amir Taheri in The New York Post and here's Benny Morris in The New York Sun (see Robert Farley's refutation) and here's New Republic editor Martin Peretz's endorsement of the latter.

UPDATE: Here's moderate warmonger Patrick Clawson from WINEP writing in the World Jewish Digest. Clawson, to his credit, recognizes that the international blowback from unilateral Israel or American strikes would, at this point, be extremely severe and advocates not bombing but rather laying the diplomatic and logistical groundwork for future bombing.
