We've been hearing that an attack on Iran would be "coming in the next few months" for over two years now and I have to admit I'm beginning to
grow skeptical. To be sure, I wouldn't put it past the neocons for a second, and having a false flag terrorist event to justify it, frankly,
wouldn't surprise me either.
And I'm not saying it won't happen before the end of the Bush Administration. But I'm also beginning to wonder if it isn't all part of an
elaborate bluff to create as much political leverage as possible when dealing with the Iranians at some future date.
I would agree that Iran has the right to use nuclear technology for generating energy, but Iran with an atomic bomb is a major concern. That doesn't
mean, though, that we have to attack them. If a deal could be worked out where we could have inspections (heck, the US and Soviet Union had
inspections as part of the SALT treaties, so it's not asking too much) then maybe a confrontation could be avoided.
Some people seem eager to have something happen because they want to be entertained by the spectacle -- not just of a US-Iran confrontation but the
whole middle east spinning out of control. This, unfortunately, seems to include people on both sides of the political fence.
