Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

War Pig

There are only a few options regarding Iran.

A) Iran gets a nuclear arsenal.

B) Iran gets bombed but still gets a nuclear arsenal.

C) Iran gets invaded to eradicate its weapons program and have its regime replaced.

D) Iran agrees to limit its nuclear program.

Netanyahu's message is basically B or C, only he thinks C can eradicate Iran's program.  Which it can't.  His own defense establishment says that won't work.  Our defense establishment says that won't work.

The logic flaw in Netanyahu's argument is big enough for a sophomore to see.  If the Iranian regime is the same as ISIS (it's not), then you can't negotiate with them.  So his solution to negotiate "harder".

Basically, Netanyahu wants to go to war with Iran.  And he wants us to go with him.
