SMART TARGETING:

Iranian regime reaching point of no return (Damien McElroy, 25/10/2007, Daily Telegraph)

America has after all pinpointed the IRG, and specifically its Quds Force, as the main instrument of Iran's support for terrorists in Iraq and Lebanon.

In a broader sense, it adds to the pressure Washington has successfully placed on Iran as the country defies the world by pursuing atomic research that looks suspiciously like an attempt to develop a nuclear bomb.

By deploying a handful of aircraft carriers around the Islamic Republic, America has made plain its military resolve. By successfully holding an international coalition together at the United Nations, Ms Rice's diplomats have impelled the UN into censuring the regime.


The narrow target ought to make it easy to convince average Iranians that it's not the Republic as a whole we have a quarrel with.
