Response to Original message
16. This is very good article.
"The national security bureaucracy has conducted war games". -- I would be very interested to know what the assumptions and outcomes of those games were.

There are a number of good "nuggets" in this article that give insight into what is going on in this administration and in the wider neocon circles. -- Concerned about potential Hezbollah strikes at Israel, indeed.

And there is this: "You have to be crystal clear with them that whatever they dream up, we can dream up something much, much worse," Gerecht said. "The Iranians understand that in the tit-for-tat game, they lose overwhelmingly." -- Ah yes, the Iranians wouldn't dare respond to any attack by us. They simply wouldn't dare...

It will be interesting to see how long the voices of sanity can keep up the current stalemate.

...And Syria is a much easier target.
