World War III looms on the horizon - the crisis seemingly averted this week may find a new life as the US wrings its hands over Iran admitting to accidentally shooting down a Ukrainian 737-800 with 176 people on board. It's not like the US hasn't shot down plenty of passenger planes in its time, including an Iranian flight with 290 people on board in 1988 for which it has never apologized. And Iran would be wise to investigate who might have been fiddling with their missile defense systems to give rise to this "human error." But the US has already pulled its MEK strings to unleash yet another tide of protesters on the Iranian streets & redirect them at regime change (Iranians have plenty of valid reasons to protest, but "bring back the Shah" isn't one of them), & is now sitting back with a Lockheed Martin-sponsored vat of popcorn. Americans cheering the protesters on would be wise to read Brookings' "Which Path to Persia" (or this) before making fools of themselves.
