War With Iran Coming

Hey Barry:

One of the former CIA guys - Michael Scheuer - gives a realistic view of our policy in the Middle East.

See it here:!

Bottom line: we'll be there for a long time, but we should try to stop creating more enemies while we're there. Our idea of putting more troops on the Arabian peninsula, even after leaving Iraq and Afghanistan, gives the radicals ammunition to hate America.

That means we need to be more realistic about Israel and about democracy.

Democracy probably will not take over there, despite the Arab Spring. Their histories argue against it in Tunisia, Libya and other places.

And, there's a good chance we will be at war with Iran.

Here's something new about that: 'ISRAEL has refused to reassure President Barack Obama that it would warn him of a pre-emptive strike on Iran's nuclear infrastructure, raising fears that it may be planning an attack as early as the next northern summer.' []

Holy cow, Barry, I hope Scheuer is wrong. Right or wrong, it's a thought provoking discussion from a man who knows his way around.

Hillary has her work cut out.

Your pal,
