"Many of the people who helped dump America into Iraq think the U.S. must attack Iran. Joshua Muravchik, a cheerful member of the dwindling band of neocon warriors, writes, "We must bomb Iran." Other observers – Joseph Cirincione of the Center for American Progress and John Pike, director of GlobalSecurity.org, for instance – believe an attack on Iran is likely if not inevitable."* ynet:
"US President George Bush does not have sufficient credit to initiate a military strike on Iran , Giora Romm, senior researcher for the Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs (jinsa), told a forum attended by members of the Foreign Ministry and delegates from the American Jewish community in Jerusalem Tuesday.* DemocracyNow had Howard Zinn on The Uses of History and the War on Terrorism for an hour.
Quoting a senior American official, Romm told the forum, "If Bush does something physical to Iran, he will be impeached."
Speaking to Ynetnews, Romm said he "could see a situation where we (israel) would attack Iran and the United States won't, but I can't estimate that now."
Romm added that the American-Israeli alliance has not been endangered following the Democratic upswing in the US elections."
