The New Rules: The Coming War With Iran

Nothing is going to stop this war dynamic from unfolding — not China, the U.N., the Pentagon’s strategic “pivot” to East Asia, our upcoming presidential election, nor our nation’s much-discussed war fatigue, much less “decline.”

New rules (my appologies to Bill Maher); 1. The USA can not go to war again, unless by narrative decision making, and 2. The narrative has to be completed before going to war.

Rule 3; The narrative will include other countries, but the decision making must somehow be separate.

One of Israel’s leading strategic analysts says the country’s leadership believes air strikes can set back the Iranian nuclear programme by three to five years

Ronen Bergman, an investigative journalist and analyst on the Israeli newspaper Yedioth Ahronoth has written a long piece for the New York Times magazine, asking the question on many people’s minds: Will Israel attack Iran?

Bergman’s answer, which comes in the last paragraph, is yes:

We can chose to use Israel’s strike (if and when) at Iran as a “Cheap Trick” for our vertical penetration into Iran, but it will have to be our “Cheap Trick” and identified as one such decision, of many, in our narrative.
