The Administration to authorize the killing of Iranians found in Iraq, as part of a deliberate policy of confrontation against Iran may be a nominee for worst idea ever, depending on how it all plays out.
But the best part is that, at a time when Iran is forming closer ties with Latin American nations already frusterated with Ameican arrogance, we have demonstrated our extreme arrogance. Without any apparent involvement from the government to whom we supposedly handed power, we declare their country a kill-zone for nationals of the most powerful neighboring nation.
Call me old fashioned, but I’ve always thought that ‘confrontation’ was an unfortunate by-product of acheiving pressing policy goals, not a strategy in and of itself.
