A Coming War with Iran

Wars, especially spectacular wars, have a way of blowing all other press stories out of the sphere of political discussion.

So what are we to make of the persistent rumours in the US that some kind of war with Iran is in the offing. Over the past year Andrew Sullivan, who is not everyone's cup of tea, seems to have shifted his long term support of Israeli policy. He was upset with the pictures that came out of Gaza, but he seems just as upset as the stories he is getting from the neocon right, about Israeli efforts to induce such a war.

If this happens, all other political bets are off.
