While we watch and see how these latest talks go with Iran, some of us retain an uneasy feeling that we may see a series of talks designed to fail just as what led up to the Iraq War. I say this especially after the Casey-Graham--Liebermann bill (Senate Resolution 380) was recently passed where diplomatic relations by United States officials and Iranian officials are prohibitive. A failure of diplomacy of course means war with Iran given the present stance of the United States government because everything remains on the table as they say about our response to diplomatic failure. Israel will of course start the war and the United States will have to finish it and retaliate against Iran's "aggression" toward Israel. Many Americans seem to presume that that will be it -- Iran will be crushed and the whole Middle East and Asia will remain uninvolved.
