War with Iran more likely
Justin Raimondo thinks that with the accession of Petraeus to the Central Command, and especially with a new story about Iranian speedboats coming near U.S. ships in the Persian Gulf, that war with Iran is much more likely before the Bushlet leaves office. What concerns me is that while the Army and Marines have been tested and come close to being hollowed out, the Navy and the AirForce have seen little action and some in those services might even welcome some action. Some U.S. strategists think Iran can be deterred with bombing and naval barrages. I suspect they are incredibly naive.
