On to Iran

Kevin Drum:

In fact, I don't consider it farfetched to suppose that Bush and his team will do their best to gin up a foreign policy crisis of some kind in order to justify further military action in a second term.

I don't think they'll "gin up" something to justify further military action, I think they'll "fuck up" something which will inevitably require, or be seen to require, further military action. Likely candidate: trying to topple the current Iranian regime through whatever exciting means Michael Ledeen is currently working on.
