Speaking of the WaPo, here's yet another war-mongering editorial, this one about Fallon

only in the warped, parallel universe occupied by the bush administration and the washington post, could being an advocate for NOT waging war lead to war...
A Failing Campaign
By swearing off military action, a U.S. commander weakens the diplomatic offensive against Iran.


[I]t's more likely that Adm. Fallon increased rather than lessened the small chance of war by stating publicly during his travels in the region that there would be no U.S. attack. Not one for diplomatic nuance, the blunt-spoken seaman appeared unable to grasp that in the absence of a credible threat of force, the U.S.-led campaign to stop Tehran's nuclear program by peaceful means would not succeed, leaving war and acquiescence to an Iranian bomb as the only alternatives.

despite the disclaimer and the mention of diplomacy in the lede...
As we have said, we oppose an attack on the Iranian nuclear program by this administration.

absolutely nowhere in the editorial was a serious proposal made for direct diplomacy...
