Joshua Muravchik er en sentral amerikansk «neocon». Han var en av dem som opprinnelig hørte til venstresida, men som ble blant krigshisserne rundt George W. Bush.
Han har nå gått ut i en kronikk i Washington Post og agitert for bombing av Iran. Den har tittelen War with Iran is probably our best option. Den er helt i tråd med Benjamin Netanyahus krigstale i Kongressen. Robert Parry skriver:
Not exactly known for truthfulness, U.S. neocons have been trying to reassure the American people that sinking a negotiated deal with Iran to limit its nuclear program would be a painless proposition, but at least one prominent neocon, Joshua Muravchik, acknowledges that the alternative will be war – and he likes the idea.
On Sunday, the neocon Washington Post allowed Muravchik to use its opinion section to advocate for an aggressive war against Iran – essentially a perpetual U.S. bombing campaign against the country – despite the fact that aggressive war is a violation of international law, condemned by the post-World War II Nuremberg Tribunal as “the supreme international crime.”
