The Iran Debate

Today I watched "Meet the Press" and Sen. Santorum (R-PA) said that Iran is dangerous because they have people on their streets who call for our destruction. What does it say that we have members of Congress and media who constantly call for theirs? Can war with Iran be avoided, or are we (us and them) destined to smack-talk our way into a fight?

Is there any way we will be able to have a rational policy debate on the Iran question? I hope so. The link is one of the best I've read on the situation.

UPDATE: 9/4/06 7:29pm EDT Just ran across another link in this same vein: Fareed Zakaria tells everyone to take a deep breath, and reminds us to look at our calendars - the year is 2006, not 1938.
