Growing Consensus

The American people seem pyschologically prepared to fight Iran in order to keep those nutcases from going nuclear:

Despite persistent disillusionment with the war in Iraq, a majority of Americans supports taking military action against Iran if that country continues to produce material that can be used to develop nuclear weapons, a Los Angeles Times/Bloomberg poll has found.

The poll, conducted Sunday through Wednesday, found that 57% of Americans favor military intervention if Iran's Islamic government pursues a program that could enable it to build nuclear arms.

This rather surprised me. But as I said, it just feels as if war is imminent. This will be ugly, I think, but unless we decide that a nuclear-armed Iran isn't so bad, it is better than doing nothing.

What choice do we have? It is a case of stop them now before they get a nuke or nuke them later after they use a nuke.
