What Do You Know About Iran
Here's a piece by Juan Cole, who knows the Middle East.
I'll bet if you asked 10,000 Americans about Iran vis-a-vis this Cole piece, maybe one would have even an open mind concerning the factual nature of the piece. Yet Mr. Cole is an expert on the Middle East, and qua his expert status, my guess is that he's pretty much right about everything he says. That leads me to the conclusion that the American press has failed us once again. One of our Presidential candidates is almost surely going to start a war with Iran. Possibly either candidate will do this, with the further possibility that Israel will start a war on its own.
We have but two choices. That's the truth of it. I'd pick the guy who seems the most rational. It's the best we can do.
