An attack on Iran really is on the table.
Note on Column Writing: Unlike blogging, column-writing is strictly constrained by space. I get about 815 words per week. This week I chose to spend those words reporting what I’d learned–all of it new information, unreported elsewhere–rather than opining about it.
My opinion about an attack on Iran, which I’ve stated often during the past several years, remains unchanged. I’m opposed. I think it’s a terrible idea. But I understand why, when dealing with so stubborn and potentially dangerous an enemy, no options can ruled out.
