Joshua Muravchik is a self-described "dyed-in-the-wool, true-believer neocon"(www.aei.org/publications/pubID.25161,filter.all/pub_detail.asp) who is a resident scholar at the American Enterprise Institute(AEI). I watched him on "Hardball" on MSNBC today laying out his case for these United States to bomb Iran. I searched and here is a column that he wrote last year about this: www.latimes.com/news/opinion/commentary/la-op-muravchik19nov19,0,5419188.story?coll=la-home-commentary Obviously, I disagree with his position as I do not think that turning the pro-Western young populace of Iran against us is a good idea in the long run, our troops in Iraq would be exposed to severe blowback, and I don't think our economy would survive $150/bbl.(or even higher) oil prices. But in the interest of good discussion I have provided the link above to his column.
