The Heritage Foundation Adopts Dr. Strangelove Style Analysis

I was just over at Political Animal and was shocked to read a post Kevin Drum has up titled Bomb, Bomb, Bomb Iran. Even more shocking were some of the comments in the comments thread. The upshot of the post is the Heritage Foundation has manufactured a belief paper that can be used to support the bombing of Iranian nuclear facilities. They conclude that under the best case scenario the bad effects of such an attack would be over in 9-12 months.

Peter Sellers examined Heritage Foundation thinking in a movie called Dr. Strangelove. Here is a very relevant clip.
