Wow, I didn't think about this...

I've definitely considered the possibility that Iran and/or Syria were involved in helping ignite recent tensions. They both support Hezbollah, and they're both apt to do short-sighted things that seem completely irrational. However this post by emptywheel at The Next Hurrah is quite fascinating in that it posits the intentional and calculated decision Iran made to get involved assumed that war with the US was inevitable. So much for our tough-talking cowboy diplomacy. Imagine what would happen if North Korea decided it was destined to be attacked?
