Iranamania

The manufactured outrage regarding the news of Iran's uranium-enriching facility reminds one that it's just that; ersatz, manufactured neconservative wind and water.
This facility presents no risk to the security of the United Kingdom, the United States or France. Within their own borders, the Iranians can do as they please to their hearts' content. You might not like it, but that's sovereignty for you. This is just another phoney crisis whipped up to keep the people fearful, and the American Enterprise Institute happy. Nobody appointed Sarkozy, Brown and Obama to the roles of the world's school prefects; and neither we nor the Iranians are their fags.
Move on along now. Nothing to see here.

Given that the neos seem to be their military wing, James, the distinction is moot.

Since sundry thinktanks staffed by generals and policy people in Washington have for years identified twenty five locations for nuclear research in Iran, including two obvious, in the open reactors, why the shock at this news? I linked to most of it my last blog on the Parthian madness.

You really do have to wonder what sort of madness lies behind the idea of an Iranian war. What next? A Russian winter campaign?
