  1. I think at this time, Iraq-weary and Bush-weary, enough people are no longer enthusiastic about a possible nuclear confrontation with Iran and that most people realize the downside risk far outweighs the upside potential. Of course we still have to worry about rogue elements in the American and Israeli governments – Bush, Olmert, Avigdor Lieberman to name a few. The real question that is insufficiently addressed is how to address a dangerous challenge that on the surface has no satisfying solution. Is it desirable to prevent Iran under its present regime from acquiring the capability to produce and deliver a nuclear weapon? Is the MAD effect applicable and trustworthy when some of the major players are indeed mad?

  2. I’m afraid that if the Iranians truly want the bomb, and it appears to be the one desire that the hardcore theocrats and the nationalists have in common, then there is very little any of us can do to stop it. The only thing I can think of is to make it very clear that if they develop the bomb and subsequently a nuclear device is detonated as an attack, the US will assume that Iran was behind it one way or the other and react accordingly.
    As for Bibi, I heard him once in a Zionists on Cleveland Campuses meeting explaining that there was no such thing as a Palestinian culture; after all, no one’s heard of a Palestinian Symphony Orchestra, have they?
