Reader comment on item: Using Cold War Tactics to Confront Iran

Submitted by Mark Werfel (United States), Jan 9, 2013 at 04:33

Good article and plan -- actually, the basic and fundamental idea: Confront the leadership class, with intent and force, using National power (military, economic, political etc) to accomplish objectives.
This is taught in our War Colleges as such.
Our leaders already know this, why don't they do it? (Clinton thru Obama)

Similary, in Egypt and the Middle East broadly, their internal struggle is between the no-good, corrupt, lousy,venal, nuts and wicked religious lunatics (Muslim Brotherhood, IRGC) and their no-good, corrupt, lousy,venal, nuts and wicked secular lunatic counterparts (Mubarak/Nassar, Shah).
