Brett Stephens thinks Obama is to blame for an unprovoked Israeli attack on Iran. While the article directs all blame towards Obama and Iran, it portrays Israeli belligerence as unavoidable and in “Israel’s best interest.” Does Israel’s best interest serve the best interests of the U.S. and Iran?
The subtitle —”President Obama can’t outsource matters of war and peace to another state” — makes a good point about outsourcing war, though the players are inverted. Reading between the lines, it is Stephens advocating outsourcing Israel’s war to the U.S.
