The “pivotal” nation

Saul Singer in the Jerusalem Post argues that “Iran is pivotal.” It’s hard to disagree with Singer given Iran’s proximity to and connections with Iraq, its nuclear program, its connections with terrorists, and the disaffection of so many Iranians with the regime that poses such a threat. It’s also hard to disagree with Singer’s view that, with Iranian elections set for June, the Bush administration should be more engaged.
Meanwhile, Caroline Glick, also in the Jerusalem Post, fears that even with a better effort by President Bush regime change won’t come to Iran quickly enough to prevent the Iranian nuclear weapons program from reaching completion. Glick thinks that only an attack on Iran can accomplish this, and that the U.S. cannot expect Israel, preoccupied as it is with the Palestinians and with pulling out of Gaza and Samaria, to launch that attack.
