Another Salon link - they've been firing on all cylinders this week. The War Room posits that the White House's overture to Iran was designed to be so unyielding, absolute and arrogant that Iran would be sure to turn it down. The box next to diplomacy could be checked off while the bombers were warming up in the hangers.

"Sure we'll negotiate with you, but before we even meet you have to agree to give us everything we want first."
