What was the New York Times op ed editor thinking when he approved Kuperman's article? Iran, Kuperman writes, needs "90 per cent enriched uranium" to have weapons-grade material, but cannot reach 20 per cent or even make fuel elements for its nuclear energy. So, how is Iran going to produce a bomb? Yet, Kuperman writes that "we have reached the point where air strikes are the only plausible option with any prospect of preventing Iran's acquisition of nuclear weapons. The sooner the United States takes action, the better."
THE AMERICAN IDIOCRACY:
The Votes of the Morons will Prevail

I so often find myself in full agreement with Paul Craig Roberts. He picks up on very nearly the identical list of points I make in my full-blog posts and micro-blog posts on Twitter and Facebook. It's like having someone looking over my shoulder. I know though that he's been writing anti-Zionist materials for a long time now. He's also far-sighted about the economy, much more so than Paul Krugman and even Nouriel Roubini for instance.
I only spotted one error in the article and that is that I believe he meant to say Somalia rather than Sudan. He didn't mention Yemen either, did he?
