A line for the ages

The header for a piece at TNR by Michael Oren:

"To prevent a regional conflagration, Israel should attack Syria"


Most striking is Oren's failure to suggest any way that a regional war could occur, besides attacking Syria. Who's going to fight? Jordan? No. Egypt? No. Saudi Arabia? To protect Shiite extremists? I don't think so.

I'm really having trouble justifying my outgoing link to TNR. For every sensible article on domestic policy, there's a fantastically stupid garbage heap like this.
