Why the Antique Media has no idea why their inability or unwillingness to tell the truth can cripple our ability to think clearly: “What I think many of us are concerned about is that we stumble into active hostilities with Iran without having aggressively pursued diplomatic approaches, without the American people understanding exactly what’s taking [...]
Chilling scenarios from Barry Rubin of the Jerusalem Post. A few years ago I ran a simulation game for a European military command.
