My previous post was fairly gloomy in looking at where we stand in the region today. On a more positive note, Marsha B. Cohen reminds us of the "2012 Predictions of War with Iran That Didn't Happen (20th Anniversary Edition)." Of course Israel is still threatening war with Iran, whose nuclear program is on the brink of success, as it has been since 1992. Though if Netanyahu wins big in the elections, I'm still going to be a bit nervous . . .
