Shorter Broder: We need another war so Americans can make more money.

No, really, go read it. That’s exactly what he says:

Here is where Obama is likely to prevail. With strong Republican support in Congress for challenging Iran’s ambition to become a nuclear power, he can spend much of 2011 and 2012 orchestrating a showdown with the mullahs. This will help him politically because the opposition party will be urging him on. And as tensions rise and we accelerate preparations for war, the economy will improve.

I am not suggesting, of course, that the president incite a war to get reelected. But the nation will rally around Obama because Iran is the greatest threat to the world in the young century. If he can confront this threat and contain Iran’s nuclear ambitions, he will have made the world safer and may be regarded as one of the most successful presidents in history.

Forget the laughable assertion that Washington Republicans will do anything besides oppose this president every step of the way on anything he might attempt to do, the man is arguing for war, which inevitably means the deaths of many innocent people, as an economic stimulus.

And whatever editorial gantlet Washington Post op-ed columns must run to get published apparently thought that was just fine. No one appears to have had the slightest moral qualm about this sentiment. No one appears to have thought, “Um, hey, are we sure we want to be advocating a war crime?”

Go to Hell, Broder. And The Washington Post should just die already.
