Bluff or serious threat?

If this report from Rupert Murdoch's Sky News is right, this will destroy a great deal of the positive things that the Obama administration has been able to accomplish with a more pragmatic foreign policy.



We've been hearing these reports for years now. The Times of London, also a Murdoch property, used to report every few months that an Israli nuclear attack on Iran was imminent.

But if Israel attacks Iran, no one is going to believe that it occurred without US approval. And American troops in Iraq are likely to pay the highest immediate price outside of Iran.

"It is the logic of our times
No subject for immortal verse
That we who lived by honest dreams
Defend the bad against the worse."
