Excerpts from the Arab and Iranian Media & Analysis of US Policy in the Region

This is why war is likely – incredible hubris on both sides

This statement by Ehud Barak reminds me of what I heard from Hizbullah officials last week – We could take over the country in two hours…. but we dont want to…. In May 2008, we could have yata yata yata….

If you want a good but admittedly abstract reason why war is likely, looj at what barak says here…. incredible that they let these quotes get out there AFTER looking at what the journo wants to use… in the clear light of second thought, he sees only truth.

“As for the top-ranking military personnel with whom I’ve spoken who argued that an attack on Iran was either unnecessary or would be ineffective at this stage, Barak said: “It’s good to have diversity in thinking and for people to voice their opinions. But at the end of the day, when the military command looks up, it sees us — the minister of defense and the prime minister. When we look up, we see nothing but the sky above us.””
