Hanson: Iran is a ‘paper tiger’ that must be bombed.

On the Hugh Hewitt show this week, prominent neoconservative Victor Davis Hanson called for an end to diplomacy with Iran, advocating military strikes against the “paper tiger”:

HH: Ought we to be talking to Iran right now, Victor Davis Hanson?

VDH: Yeah, I think that’s way, way overdue. We really need to start doing some things beyond talking, and if that is going into Iranian airspace, or buzzing Iranians, or even starting to forget where the border is and taking out some of these training camps, we need to do that and send a message, because they’re a paper tiger. They really are.

A “paper tiger” is something that seems as threatening as a tiger, but is really harmless.
