From Philip Giraldi at Campaign for Liberty:
First and foremost is the fact that Iran does not and realistically speaking cannot pose a threat against the United States….
Second, the United States can’t afford another war, most particularly a “war of choice.” …
Third, no war goes according to plan and there are always unintended consequences….
Fourth, attacking Iran after invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq would send the message that the United States is pursuing a policy of incremental regime change for the entire Muslim world….
Fifth, war against Iran would complete the transformation of America into a nation dominated by war.
Read the full article for elaboration on each point. Giraldi is absolutely right here; I can only pray he is less right in his confident prediction that this unfortunate war is likely to happen.Published in
