Reversion to the Mean 

The presidential election is becoming increasingly irrelevant when it comes to restraining the expansionist tendencies of the US and Israel. If the Israelis launch an attack on Iran before he enters the White House, Obama will be transformed into another war president. Isn't it remarkable that it is impermissible for anyone within the political elite to merely voice concerns about the consequences of an attack?

You have to be out of the government and out of the electoral process to do that, it seems. Meanwhile, the Democratic leadership in the House has been briefed about a presidential finding authorizing expanded covert operations within Iran. Naturally, they raised no objection, and approved increased funding for these activities. It appears that the war with Iran actually began quite some time ago.
