    I'm all about differing opinions, but as far as Ann Coulter goes I'd rather attempt to induce an enema on Helen Thomas then read a boom written by that psychotic, brainless right wing zombie.

    Personally, I am somewhat skeptical of this as it is too sloppy for Iran. This isn't Iran's style. From the article:

    Mr Holder described the plot as an "international murder for hire scheme" involving a plan to pay an assassin from a Mexican drug cartel $US1.5 million to carry out the killing.

    If Iran wanted to assassinate someone, why would they use a Mexican drug cartel?

    Why was the entire thing planned on US soil? That's quite risky. I mean, if you want to assassinate a diplomat, it'd be pretty easy to do, but everyone knows that US security, police, and intelligence are on the look out for even a mention of terrorism, thus your chances decrease greatly.

    Finally, if Iran had succeeded, what would they have gotten out of it? How would it have furthered their interests? The plot would have been investigated and would have been linked back to Iran, thus they could have had Saudi Arabia and Israel wanting to attack them and everyone knows that if Israel attacks Iran, America is right there with them. Thus you'd have the world's superpower (US), a regional superpower (Israel), and a major regional power (Saudi Arabia) all bombing the crap out of your country. While the Iranian government may act crazy, they aren't stupid. Thus, I have to wonder why Iran would even do this. (Please note that I am not saying its impossible, but it looks a bit strange is all.)
    What is Iran's style? Educate us.

    Ok, well, post the list of Conservative authors that you've read. Thanks!

    Ann Coulter is probably the only Conservative author that you can name, without googling.

    I'm amazed at how you get riled up about that, but when someone suggests that 9/11 was an inside job by our government, you're strangely silent.

    Ann Coulter is a troll. One should never read books by trolls.

    Can't speak for everyone, but many like myself have said it was stupid to suggest it was an inside job. Can't we agree stupid silliness is stupid silliness no matter which side does it?

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    I don't focus on conservative vs. liberal when I read books on things like foreign policy. I prefer to chose my authors based on their legitimacy.

    So I enjoy John Mearsheimer, Stephen Walt, Robert Art, Robert Pape, Kenneth Waltz, Alexander Wendt, Robert Keohane and the list goes on and on. And for the record, Mearsheimer and Pape are conservatives - I'm sure some of the others are as well, but I haven't checked.
