This piece by Niall Ferguson is a chilling "what if" about the Gulf War of 2007.
His notion is that if Iran's President Ahmadinejad is not stopped, a nuclear exchange between Iran and Israel and ensuing war are real prospects. And condidering the burgeoning alliance between Venezuela's mad Hugo Chávez and Iran, the introduction of hostile nuclear weapons into this hemisphere is not excluded.
Chilling. And the Senate gabbles about disgruntled old-school-tie Princeton alumni.
