Another piece up today, this time on LobeLog, in which i respond to the always hawkish, never thinking John Bolton as he bangs his war drum loudly. The case he makes for attacking Iran is quite hollow and I explain why.

In my latest piece for Souciant, I explore the ways in which the Netanyahu government, along with their allies in Washington, are working to push for war with Iran, preferably with the United States doing the shooting. A host of recent events point in this direction. I’ve preached for a long time that a war with Iran is not going to happen. I still believe it, but that belief is being pushed hard these days by Bibi and his pals.
