Iranian Escalation

There seems to be a growing chorus of conservative singers talking about a "limited" attack on Iran. Josh Bolton:

I think they’re dead wrong on this. I think this is a case where the use of military force against a training camp to show the Iranians we’re not going to tolerate this is really the most prudent thing to do. Then the ball would be in Iran’s court to draw the appropriate lesson to stop harming our troops.
While Bolton is not a government official, he may be part of a scout party designed to "soften up" the body politic, preparing for aerial attacks within Iran. I just don't think there's any way Bush leaves office without firing a shot at his perceived mortal enemy.

Added: Meanwhile, Akerman does some supposin' that makes a lot of sense.

Shame on any military member who carries out any order to strike Iran.
Killing someone who has done you no harm simply because someone else tells you to: if that isn't the definition of insanity, I don't know what is.
