Mobilize to ensure Obama's Iran Policy Succeeds?
"A familiar coalition of hawks, hardliners, and neoconservatives expects Barack Obama's proposed talks with Iran to failand they're already proposing an escalating set of measures instead. Some are meant to occur alongside any future talks. These include steps to enhance coordination with Israel, tougher sanctions against Iran, and a region-wide military buildup of U.S. strike forces, including the prepositioning of military supplies within striking distance of that country.

Once the future negotiations break down, as they are convinced will happen, they propose that Washington quickly escalate to war-like measures, including a U.S. Navy-enforced embargo on Iranian fuel imports and a blockade of that country's oil exports. Finally, of course, comes the strategic military attack against the Islamic Republic of Iran that so many of them have wanted for so long."

1. They are used to dealing with a puppet. (Bush)
and they are underestimating Obama's own doctrine.....almost as much as many on our side have.
