Sanctions for Iran?

Or perhaps an Israeli air strike? Must it come to this? What happened to good old-fashioned industrial sabotage? How about slipping some faulty designs to some Iranian spies like we did to the Soviet Union in the 80's? Must we go through this wearying diplomatic charade trying to gain unenforceable agreements among unwilling parties? Must we alienate more people in the Middle East with an imperial attitude so indelibly aligned with Israel? Just asking.

According to James Risen, we tried, and it backfired:

Of course there is no way of knowing how much, if any, of the above is true. It is strange how little coverage this story's recieved. Or maybe it has been getting coverage, just not in The Tide Online, which is all I read these days.

Here's the link to the article Carter referred to - sounds like the CIA we've grown to know and love of late.
I agree, though, that it has gotten very little coverage.

I think we can comfortably leave the Iran situation in the hands of Isreal.

Charles Krauthammer opined recently that a major strike by Isreal on Iran was imminent and he has a pretty good ear for what is going on in the region.

I think Iran chose an inopportune to become belligerent about their refusal for oversight. While it may appear that the country is in disarray due to the Sharon situation, I think they have a strong self preservation backbone that supercedes their immediate situation and that they may be more dangerous now than 3 months ago.

If the US just continues to express their complete support of Isreal (which is a topic for an entirely different discussion), I think Isreal can "deal" with Iran in an effective way, probably better than we could.
