From naked capitalism:

Despite sanctions, Iran is gaining ground and prestige and influence in the Middle East, and enriching uranium besides, and trading oil directly to China and other nations, not using dollars. Russia is selling them some very serious missile systems, and lots of it. Those Iranians are just really out of line, and they’re Shiites, to boot.

Neither the Saudis or Israelis are willing to put up with it any longer. It will only be harder and more costly if it’s put off. We’re fed up with Iran as well. Sanctions aren’t working.

We tried the covert method. Syria was supposed to fall to the Saudi-financed, US-supplied rebels by this time. That isn’t happening. Instead, Assad is winning. Sanctions were supposed to crush Iran by now. Instead, they’re trading oil for goods from China. Brazil is getting into trading with them, too. India is next, and then everyone will be doing it.

War is politics by other means. It is time to kick over the table and put things right in the Middle East. Iran has got to go down and stay down.

That’s how our side sees things.
