With the U.S. on the verge of pulling out of Iraq and shutting down one war, fear that a new war with Iran is on the horizon is growing. President Obama announced today that funding for the military will be cut back, but at the same time the US has sent thousands of US troops to Israel. Much of U.S. policy in the region and anti-Iranian fervor stems from the American commitment to protect Israel at all costs. The Jewish state has shrilly charged the Iranians are a regional security threat and cannot be allowed to have nuclear arms.
