Reworking a Classic
Austin Bay sends word:
Jim Dunnigan and I are working on a fourth edition of A Quick and Dirty Guide to War. Today I re-worked the “Iran” chapter from the 1996 edition. In many ways I am surprised at how little has changed. Oh, there are big changes. US forces are now on the mullahs’ eastern and western borders (Afghanistan and Iraq). Yes, Iraq remains a threat to the mullahs, but not in the form of Saddam. It’s a threat because it is an emerging Arab democracy next door to the mullahs’ failing Iranian (Aryan) despotism.
