Dubai and the Straits of Hormuz

At Dissident Voice, Mike Whitney explains why the Dubai deal is so urgent for Bush, despite opposition from nearly everyone else.

He then adds this tidbit about Iran's future:

The NPT [Nuclear non-Proliferation Treaty] is dead.

Will this final assault on international agreements clear the path for war with Iran?

It is hard to say, but the Financial Times reported that, “Iranian activists involved in a classified research project for the marines told the FT the Pentagon was examining the depth and nature of grievances against the Islamic government (Iran) and appeared to be studying whether Iran would be prone to violent fragmentation along the same kind of fault-lines that are splitting Iraq.”
