Patrick Clawson and his crowd have lost the tug-of-war with the pro-American faction of the foreign policy establishment: that's the significance of the Iran deal, and its importance should not be underestimated. This is a tipping point, a real sea-change -- but the neocons never give up, and they never give an inch. We underestimate them at our peril.

She pledged a ramped-up US military presence in the immediate vicinity of Iran, perhaps giving Clawson new hope that another Gulf of Tonkin is in the works. He lost the tug-of-war with that protester, but don't think he and his comrades will stop trying to pull the country their way.
