For weeks if not months now, a troll by the name of Richard Steven Hack has been popping up in comments alleging that I'm dodging his "two questions" about Iran and so on and so forth. In fact, I just didn't know what his questions were! Now I know:
So he's STILL ducking my two questions. What's so hard about answering my two questions, Matt? You either believe (or don't know whether) Iran has a nuclear weapons program, or you don't. You either believe that a military response is appropriate if Iran DOES have such a program, or you don't.
Obviously I have no personal knowledge of Iran's nuclear program, but I accept the judgment of the Intelligence Community that Iran doesn't have a nuclear weapons program. And if Iran does restart its nuclear weapons program, I don't think bombing Iran would be an appropriate response. It seems to me that I've written extensively on both of these questions over the years, though not explicitly in response to Mr RSH. I hope this is the last we'll hear of me "ducking" these topics.
