In his recent post, Cernig points to an interesting article by Galal Nassar in Al-Ahram Weekly, in which Nassar describes the difficulties of a military strike against Iran, but depicts a possible way out for the US.
- Al-Ahram Weekly | War by proxy: "... There is, unfortunately, another and far more likely scenario - war by proxy. A war between Sunnis and Shias in the region could all too easily present itself as the solution to the West's dilemma. It would sap the capacities of both sides to the benefit of many parties, none of them Arab or Muslim."
