'Bomb Iran'

That's one neocon's policy advice, as relayed by the Los Angeles Times.

One wonders: Then what?

Scott Ritter (yes, that Scott Ritter), offers an alternative view, in an excerpt from his new book "Target Iran: The Truth About the White House's Plans for Regime Change."

A couple of weeks ago Ritter was talking about his book with Sy Hersh on C-SPAN. I'm paraphrasing here, but Ritter said that whenever he heard someone advocate a preemptive nuclear strike against Iran, he'd ask that person to "pick a city."

That is, to pick an American city they wouldn't mind seeing wiped off the map in retaliation.

So, what will it be Detroit? New York? Atlanta?

Seems like a fair question. Anybody out there wargaming this?
