'Intelligent discontent is the mainspring of civilization.' -- Eugene V. Debs

I caught the Guardian article and the one in the New York Times as well before going to sleep last night, but Yoshie over at Lenin's Tomb got there first with a post. So, why do I feel more alarmed than reassured? Could the unanimity of the responses of experienced leftists to Yoshie's belief that there has been a fundamental change in policy towards Iran be one of the sources of my discomfort? For some reason, I get scared when a group of independent minded, smart leftists see an issue very similarly. Maybe, I should just relax, go get a chocolate croissant and visit my son down the street in day care.
