David Ignatius: “Military action would be irrational for both sides. But that doesn’t mean it won’t happen. I wish the Bush administration could see that with each step it takes closer to conflict, it is walking toward a well-planned trap.” The thing is that the planning behind this trap isn’t really all that impressive and it’s pretty obvious what’s going on. The scary thing is that even though the trap’s not particularly clever, it’s very plausible that we’ll stumble into it anyway.
