Iran? Wingnuts, and carbon guzzlers

Once again, the war drums rumble:

In The Sunday Times: Pentagon ‘three-day blitz’ plan for Iran.

From A Tiny Revolution: Wow, We Suck. Yep, I suck too.
Afghanistan? Okay, that was impossible. Iraq? Well...September 11th, etc. But Iran? If you can't stop the third war in six years—one that's going to happen because shredding infants with flechettes is the last remaining activity that provides William Kristol sexual gratification—you should change your name from "anti-war movement" to "pro-sucking movement."

In the New Republic: Feast of the Wingnuts. Not about Iran but on the economic disaster brought about by the policies of those who have also crafted our foreign policy over the last several years.

And, last, as long as we're berating the state of political responsibility in this country, a column from Michael Niman in Artvoice: Getting a Grip: Carbon Culture.
All of this consumption squanders precious, nonrenewable resources both in production and shipping while producing all sorts of waste products such as carbon, the effects of which we are only now beginning to understand. Fetishistic consumerism isn’t harmless—it’s adding up to the biggest threat humanity and the world has ever faced.
