'I profoundly disagree with M. V. that Israel or America should bomb anything in Iran. It is enough to sweetly explain to the clerics what will happen if...' S, you're being quite optimistic - you are essentially saying that the mullahs are rational enough to avoid war, based on a threat of reprisal. I do not believe we should leave such matters to optimism or mere chance. If Baldwin or Chamberlain had recognised the pre-eminent threat of their own time and had the courage to counter it, history might have had a much happier turn.
