What war will launch first, Israel's Round 2 on Gaza or Uncle Sam's blistering of Iran's military and nuclear capabilities? Three years ago President Elect Obama sat on his backside as Israel pummeled Gaza. This time he'll be in the Commander in Chief's seat, i.e. chief world tamperer.
Decisions are made by these people like Panetta, Hillary, Donilon at the national Security Council and General Petraeus. And I think this is a very aggressive group right now.
