You Decide Whether or Not to Attack Iran

I'm not really an Iran person, and I don't have strong feelings about the right or wrong way to handle the Iranian nuclear program. But I nonetheless enjoyed---and found rather informative---this Truman National Security Project online war game, entitled Tell Me How This Ends, which lets you make key decisions regarding whether how to escalate the U.S. response to Iranian nuclear enrichment. Foreign Policy magazine calls it "a 'Choose Your Own Adventure' for policy wonks," and the decision-making is, to be sure, not especially fine-grained. Indeed, it's about as fine-grained as the old Choose Your Own Adventure choices. But it's well worth a look---especially for those who are sure they do know the right way to handle the situation.
