"The fervent anti-Iranianism in Congress actually strengthens the very Iranian rulers and politicians we oppose. The Iranian people, like those of any nation, believe their country has a right to develop nuclear power and defend themselves, and will rally around a regime they otherwise despise. Worse, this anti-Iranianism brings on economic instability. Iran's threat to close off the Straits of Hormuz will likely lead to more speculation in the oil market. If it makes good on the threat, there will likely be yet another costly war -- maybe even a depression." (01/12/12)
