Gates Spins About Iran


by Steve

Two things for you to chew on this afternoon regarding Iran. First, Robert Gates says the Bush Administration is not planning for a war with Iran. This would be technically true if the administration has already completed planning for a war with Iran. Your thoughts.

Second, read this interesting piece from Newsweek’s Christopher Dickey, who thinks that both Iran and the Bush Administration are playing poker, but that Iran is simply more experienced at it. Dickey doesn’t think the White House will really attack Iran, and is simply bluffing. Are they?

And lastly, not directly related to Iran, note the gloom from MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough about how Bush’s determination to prove his manhood on Iraq will likely sink the GOP in 2008.
