McCain Likeliest to Attack Iran

Former interim UN Ambassador (never confirmed) John Bolton says that he's backing John McCain because "he would handle the Iranian nuclear program in a “stronger” way than the Bush administration."

In light of some comments that Bolton made earlier in the interview, I am really scared that we're about to open up another war. Well, scared at least of the prospect of a McCain presidency, which ultimately isn't all that likely. Still enough to give you heartburn though:

Adopting Bill Kristol’s argument, Bolton suggested that an attack on Iran depends on who Americans elect as the next President: "I think if they [Israel] are to do anything, the most likely period is after our elections and before the inauguration of the next President. I don’t think they will do anything before our election because they don’t want to affect it. And they’d have to make a judgment whether to go during the remainder of President Bush’s term in office or wait for his successor."

See Andrew Sullivan's post from Sunday about the 'Mother of all October surprises'. Apparently Bill Kristol dropped a hint about a confrontation with Iran coming before the election, creating a 'crisis' that would drive many voters to McCain. Very scary thought.
