    "It is very possible that Iranian offensive power will evaporate quickly once attacked and they will be unable to do much in the immediate theater. Maybe I`m wrong about that. I don`t claim to know and I don`t care." The difference between you and me, Stephen, is that I do care what happens when US bombs have stopped falling on Iran. I've listened to what the Iranians have said they will do ("Go for America's oil jugular")and I've tried to put myself in the shoes of the Iranian president and consider what I might do with the military assets I have. Every possible scenario is disastrous. Forget for a moment the closure of the Gulf. Consider what would happen to Israel if Iran ignored "prestige" targets like Dimona and sent volley after volley of long range missiles into the oil refinery complexes at Haifa and Ashdod, rendering them unusable. What if Iran destroyed the main Saudi oil terminal at Ras Tanura? You fear nuclear bogeymen. I fear world economic meltdown.

Alvy (Woody Allen) and Annie (Diane Keaton) in 'Annie Hall.'
Why is it hard to fall in love, and even harder to sustain it?

The answer can be summed up in one word, narcissism, which manifests itself in three principal ways. There are ways to overcome this love of self, however.
