The last few weeks have seemed eerily similar to the build-up towards war with Iraq. First you have the pundits flooding the media with talk of how war is inevitable, then eventually the political leaders follow. At least it sounds like there’s a reasonable adult at the helm: ‘This is not a game’: Obama blasts ‘casual’ talk of war with Iran.
Last week, in the build up towards the Israeli Prime Ministers visit to Washington, a lot of media focused on how Netanyahu had the upper hand and was going to be able to force Obama into action. I find this particularly disturbing; a country that relies heavily on the US for its defense wants to strong-arm them into war?
I agree it’s not good for anyone if Iran builds nuclear weapons, but then again it’s not good if anyone has them. A conventional war with Iran definitely wouldn’t be good either.
