Those who oppose Iran acquiring nuclear weapons are left in the near term with only the option of targeted military force against its weapons facilities. Significantly, the uprising in Iran also makes it more likely that an effective public diplomacy campaign could be waged in the country to explain to Iranians that such an attack is directed against the regime, not against the Iranian people. This was always true, but it has become even more important to make this case emphatically, when the gulf between the Islamic revolution of 1979 and the citizens of Iran has never been clearer or wider. Military action against Iran's nuclear program and the ultimate goal of regime change can be worked together consistently.
That's right, all it's going to take is some sort of mass P.R. campaign (pamphlets? spam mail?) to convince the majority of Iranians that when Israeli fighter planes start dropping bombs on Tehran it's nothing personal--- hey, we just don't like Khanenei! We're on your side!
Yes, this is the same paper that features Charles Krauthammer, refuses to use the word "torture" in reference to the, um, torture organized and implemented by the Bush regime, and that just fired their only left leaning on-line columnist (Dan Froomkin). What a joke. Furthermore, the Iranian people just spent the past 2 weeks courageously rising up against the results of a sham election. The subsequent brutal, totalitarian crackdown has only made the Islamic theocracy more vulnerable and less legitimate in the eyes of its citizens. Unrest continues to foment. And so now is the time to send Jewish F-16's into the heart of Shi'ite Islam????
