[I hope what we are hearing is huffing and puffing only from Blair and some of the others towards Iran, but I fear that we may just be seeing preparations for a Lebanon type attack designed to destroy Iran’s infrastructure:

This website reported the possible motivation for our military build up in that region last fall.  Since that time we have added a second fleet to the Persian Gulf which is undergoing maneuvers simultaneously with Iranian military ones.  One false step on either side could launch a brutal war, cutting off access to the bulk of Mid East oil as well as risking massive military and civilian casualties.  Ever since Hitler pulled the Blitz on London, some modern nations have (wrongly) assumed that enemies can be cowed into submission by brutal attacks on their civilian populations.  Incidentally, I wonder what gives the British the right to stop and search a vessel there — not exactly British coastal waters.  One has to hope that their sailors will be returned shortly, but  .  .  .

We shall see presumably what is up in future months and I sincerely hope that the decider is not deciding once again.  An attack on Iran would be a disaster that would make Iraq look like a tea party!  Ed Kent]

“A war is just if there is no alternative, and the resort to arms is legitimate if they represent your last hope.” (Livy cited by Machiavelli)
