A war with Iran would be a catastrophe, yet by opposing diplomacy, hundreds of members of the U.S. Congress may be blundering into just such a conflict.
Many of the strategies and most of the belligerent rhetoric aimed at stopping Iran's potential nuclear weapons program, not to say dislodging its rulers, is dangerously counter-reproductive.
Stephen Harper seems immune not only to the facts surrounding the Iranian nuclear issue but to the consequences of adopting Israel's position as Canada's own.
Any day now Israel is going to bomb Iran and force the U.S. into another Iquagmire.
The reckless escalation of aggression against Iran continues apace. The plausible result is an uncontrollable conflict that will spread throughout the Middle East and beyond.
The Western military interventions in Iraq and Libya, both oil-producing countries, devastated them to achieve regime change, the central tenet for neocon reconfiguration of power in the Middle East.
