Iran's mad leader has expressed a desire wipe out an American ally. Iran with nukes would be an immensely destabalizing force and a direct threat to U.S. interests. And the apocalyptic visions of Ahmadinejad about hastening the return of the 12th Imman should not be casually dismissed.I would like to remind Mr Wittmann that it was George W. Bush's belligerent rhetoric that made Iran feel they had to get on the Nuke fast track. I would also like to remind Mr Wittmann that his own belligerent rhetoric directed at the base of the Democratic party will insure that the DLC will become it's own very small party. One party of messianic neocons is one too much, we certainly don't need another.
While diplomacy is being attempted, who among us would take the military option off the table? This is an interesting moment for the anti-Iraq war left. Setting Iraq aside, they claim they are hawks concerning the war against terror. So why are so many of them aghast at the thought of Pentagon plans to deprive Iran of her nukes?
Do the new Iran doves really believe that the mullas will comply absent a military threat? Hopefully, Teheran receives its New Yorker subscription or reads Sy's piece on the internet. Maybe the mullas will have second thoughts about owning nukes.
It would be a good thing if Ahmadinejad believes that the American President is a Texas cowboy who might even deploy a tactical nuclear weapon to destroy Iran's holocaust-enabling nukes. Make certain that the mullas are on MoveOn.org's list serve!
Meanwhile, the Moose urges the Pentagon to keep on planning...

Still more Bull than Moose
I noticed today that Marshall Wittmann has changed the header on his blog, The Bull Moose. It now reads "More Moose Less Bull", unfortunately it still contains mostly bull. Mr Wittmann should give up his pretend job as a Democrat and crawl back into the neocon hole where he belongs with Joe Lieberman and the rest of the DLC. And yes Hillary that includes you. But back to the bull from the moose.
