Romney's saber-rattling is profoundly troubling. Iran is not Iraq--it's got plenty of money, a huge armed force, and singleminded fanaticism. A war with Iran would truly devastate us.

Attacking Iran would be foolish.

The question is not one of financial affordability as much as one of morality. How is it we survived the notorious "red scare" during the Cold War period without one incident of nuclear warfare or terrorism? Why is it we give in to the fear that the latest threat is the incarnation of an irrational Hitler who must be stopped at all costs? Are we really willing to send off more of our own to their deaths for a fear that probably will never materialize? Is it really a wise strategy to provoke yet more anti-American sentiment around the world? At one time, America was a model of restraint and judiciousness, but now exemplifies excess and knee-jerk reactions to imagined scenarios. If that's what Americans want more of, Romney/Gingrich/Cain/ Bachmann/Santorum/Perry/Obama will grant their wish. Ron Paul offers the only true alternative to a Republican party bereft of vision.
