The neocons are itching for battle. There are dueling Kaplan pieces recommending the United States go to war with Iran (Applebaum and Cohen). Cohen’s advice is particularly idiotic:
It may be time for Barack Obama, ever the soul of moderation, to borrow a tactic from Richard Nixon and fight crazy with crazy. The way things are going, it would be crazy not to.
It will be interesting to see how this goes. I guess the next stops on the war tour are The New Republic, Slate, and then the Sunday morning shows. I wonder if Sullivan will call anyone fifth columnists this time.
