Iran is contemplating violently shutting down shipping in the Persian Gulf as one of several counterattack options if Israel strikes its nuclear facilities, regional and intelligence analysts say.
I just read the horrifying, apocalyptic op-ed by Frank J. Gaffney Jr. ("Diplomacy of September"). The prospect of Shariah blasphemy laws coming to the United States are real.

Frank J. Gaffney Jr.'s Tuesday Commentary column, "Scandalous air tanker decision" may turn out to be rightly headlined, but for all the wrong reasons. The Air Force will soon decide which company will provide it with new aerial-refueling tankers, a decision that will impact U.S. power projection for the next 50 years.

Each also claims about the same number of U.S. jobs supported by the awarding of the contract.
