Sounding the alarm on an impending war with Iran

Seumas Milne in The Guardian makes the case, and with reason.  The US's actions in ramping up naval forces in the Persian Gulf, providing weapons and missile defense systems to the Gulf Sheikhdoms, issuing warnings to Iran (and to China for failing to support the US and the Euros in applying sanctions to Iran) all suggest a hardening of attitudes, a line being drawn in the sand, that bodes ill.

And we're heading into an election season . . . what Obama once termed the "silly season" . . . when Obama and his party will have to pander to the Israel lobby and all the congressmen in its thrall.   Obama's once outreached hand will be withdrawn into his pocket,  and he and his will instead be baring their teeth to Mr. Ahmadinejad and the "mad mullahs."  Of course, Obama understands that a military strike against Iran would not save his presidency (as Daniel Pipes asserts), but destroy it, and probably trash the global economy.  Obama understands that . .  . 

. . . doesn't he?
