SO I’VE HEARD A LOT OF TRIUMPHANT SCHADENFREUDE, OR WHATEVER YOU CALL IT, about how Iraq was an obvious disaster and it’ll change American foreign policy forever. But then there’s this: Poll: Americans Prepared for Military Action Against Iran. “According to a new Pew poll, 64 percent of Americans believe that it’s ‘more important to prevent Iran from developing nuclear weapons than to avoid a military conflict.’ They point out that ‘majorities across nearly all demographic groups’ agree — 80 percent of Republicans prioritized preventing a nuclear Iran over avoiding military conflict, but a majority of Democrats, 62 percent, did too.”
The good news is that with Barack Obama belatedly following my Iran recommendations it may not come to that.
