Why would Tehran want a war – and with a superpower?
Why are John McCain and Lindsay Graham so dead set on war with Iran? For the same reason they are dead set on wars elsewhere. McCain is on record wanting to invade, bomb, or destabilize more than a dozen different countries.
But as Pat Buchanan writes, its stretches rationality to make the case that Iran is the Fourth Reich. “Depending on one’s source, Iran’s economy is 2 to 4 percent of ours. After oil and gas, its big exports appear to be caviar, carpets and pistachio nuts.”
“Since the 1979 revolution, Iran has attacked no nation and gone to war once – to defend herself against Saddam Hussein’s aggression that had the backing of the United States.”
