Cernig has the rundown of the current state of play In Re: Let's Get Iran. Since we're all now free to compare Iraq and Vietnam, given the President's evident affection for everyone's favorite Catholic pessimist, we might as well note that no act of imperial aggression is complete without a little regional expansion. Democrats have spent the last six months or so creating an entirely propitious atmosphere for aggression against Iran, and I've no doubt that the reliably nervous American people can be moved to tepid acceptance of another war, despite their disapproval of the present one. Since we lack the manpower to launch a ground invasion, it will begin as an air campaign anyway, which should provide a modest opportunity for Wolf Blitzer too pull one off on the public in front of all those big screens. By the time we all get around to wiping the white strings of Shock & Awe, part II from our lips, we'll have no choice but to count ourselves as well and thoroughly fucked. Think how the Iranians are going to feel. Maybe someone can blame the subprime crisis on Iran, too. The subversion of the debtor economy must not continue. In the name of John Maynard Keynes, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, and Citigroup, attack! This aggression will not stand, man.
