    “Iran’s opponents are becoming more united”

    Mostly in talk. That has the same relationship to action that EU nattering about “what we must do to save the Euro” has to effecting meaningful changes in Eurozone nations’ behavior.

    This is all sturm und drang over nothing. Nonproliferation is Deader than Disco, and has been for 15 years. The efforts to “stop Iran from getting a nuke” will be as effective and resolute as the same efforts in North Korea. The last window for action to stop Iran was 2004-’08, and the interested parties (the US, Israel, NATO and the Great Powers) made their decisions. The cake is baked.

    I find it exceedingly interesting that the Obama admin has notified Congress of its intention to sell more than 6500 specialized bunker busting bombs and warheads to the United Arab Emirates. Now why would the UAE need so many of these specialized munitions other than for a strike on Iranian targets? When one combines this with the reports of British support for an Israeli strike on Iran, could we be seeing the outline of a new “coalition of the willing”? It would certainly throw a wrench into the usual narrative if an Arab country joined with Israel and the West to take out the Iranian threat they all fear. Grand bargain anyone?
