The Daily Show on the narrow range of options on Iran

Jon Stewart reinforces the points that I made here and here, about how the debate over Iran is limited due to the pandering that American politicians indulge in when it comes to the Israel lobby.

    I like Stewart’s ending quote:

    “Because in Israel you are allowed to criticize Israel and hold political office.”

    My personal opinion is that this has moved beyond the Israel lobby. Well beyond. It has taken on a life of it’s own. Which is the most dangerous situation to be in. Obama is backing himself into a corner where an all out assault on Iran is the only way out.

    Columnist Charles Krauthammer, I suspect, doesn’t find Mr. Stewart convincing.
