William F. Buckley Jr. on Iran

William F. Buckley Jr. on Iran and James Fallows on National Review Online:

WFB on war game scenarios and the Iranian threat.

"Resolved: 1) Israel can't handle the challenge. 2) The U.S. can't abjure military action, there must be the threat that we will act. 3) Gaining time does not necessarily enhance our leverage.

So? What happens is going to depend on a quick judgment by the President of the United States.
What we can learn from Iraq is that he needs to be counseled on the consequences of alternative actions. He needs to avoid such as what we are contending with in Iraq."
