From this morning's NYT: " Zodiac, which manages the Mercer Street, is led by Eyal Ofer, an Israeli shipping magnate, prompting some analysts to speculate that it may have been targeted by Iranians, even before the Israeli officials identified the drones as Iranian."

#3 It matters because America has not yet achieved energy independence.
Enough oil gets pumped out of American soil that we could achieve energy independence.
But that would be "bad for the economy." So we don't even try.

Yeah... I remember those guys said Saddam had WMDs and getting rid of him would stabilize the region blah blah.

Their credibility sucks.

They are the "Karen" of the middle east nations... always the victim... whining about someone picking on them.

#7 - I tend to agree with the 'Karen' analogy, but that does not necessarily mean Iran is not behind the attack.
