Jim Lobe and Pat Buchanan reach similar conclusions. The Financial Times gave Admiral Fallon a full color front page picture, so you know that some faction of the ruling class (the "realists") knows a psychotic plan when they smell it.

There's still a lot of time until President Romney or Clinton (or whoever) is sworn in, though, and we aren't safe from an attack on Iran until then. Or after then, for that matter, although I dare to hope the chances go down at that point.

Bad luck baby put the jinx on me,
I got the heeby jeebies and I can't get well

--Little Richard

Admiral Fallon has the heeby-jeebies because those bad luck Persians have some Sunburn guided missiles which could put some of his squids in the water.
