Sliding Toward War With Iran?

Opinion: Kenneth M. Pollack

"(The New Republic) With so much alarming going on in the Middle East, it's hard to keep track of everything that seems to be going wrong. No sooner had the Libyan civil war ended than another erupted in Syria. Iraq appears determined to follow, and perhaps overtake their Syrian neighbors. Egypt remains locked in a multi-sided struggle among the military, the Islamists and the secular liberals. And disturbing reports of low-level, but growing unrest in Saudi Arabia have begun to emerge.
Amid all of this, the one place that the United States has resolutely marched forward—or perhaps been dragged by the Congress and our European allies—has been in applying ever greater pressure on Iran. But if the Obama administration’s forward progress is clear enough when it comes to its Iran policy, its ultimate destination is not. The sanctions against Iran may well succeed on their own terms while producing regrettable, if unintended, consequences."

I agree with what Pollack says but there may be a working paper in existence for the NSC and the White House. It must call for drawing the Iranians into closing the Straits and then dropping the hammer to include a declaration of war and a regime change via dropping the bomb. Any way you look at it the risk of WWIII is rising so may 2012 be it, boom.

What are you suggesting here?

SO and the MODS apply sanctions on Iran and it's members?
