#2  forging a consensus among government agencies required "a lot of work."

It takes paper-shuffling, endless meetings, circular arguments and PowerPoint presentations so stupifying they could be weaponized for crowd control. Luckily, we're trained bureaucrats with nothing better to do.

#5 The only winner is Israel.

We've been are war with Iran for some time now. Something about a Marine barracks. And embassy hostages. I'm glad to see someone doing something about it.

Does Israel benefit? Probably. So do Iran's enemies. If oil prices rise, so does Russia. And American frackers. That doesn't mean it's the wrong thing to do.
