More reason to fear we are heading straight for war with Iran

Fox News is reporting that Germany has decided to withdraw support for sanctions against Iran, privately favoring a military campaign instead.  This apparently has everyone in D.C. involved in risk/benefit analysis mode and the plans are for a bombing campaign within the next 8-10 months.  It’s pretty good reporting for Fox.  The article states:

“Political and military officers, as well as weapons of mass destruction specialists at the State Department, are now advising Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice that the diplomatic approach favored by Burns has failed and the administration must actively prepare for military intervention of some kind. Among those advising Rice along these lines are John Rood, the assistant secretary for the Bureau of International Security and Nonproliferation; and a number of Mideast experts, including Ambassador James Jeffrey, deputy White House national security adviser under Stephen Hadley and formerly the principal deputy assistant secretary for Near Eastern affairs.”

“Consequently, according to a well-placed Bush administration source, “everyone in town” is now participating in a broad discussion about the costs and benefits of military action against Iran, with the likely timeframe for any such course of action being over the next eight to 10 months, after the presidential primaries have probably been decided, but well before the November 2008 elections.”,2933,296450,00.html

Of course, Joe Lieberman is keeping up his usual antics, itching for a war, asking at a hearing of the Senate Armed Services Committee for military strikes against Iran.
