Well, it was just a matter of time, was it not?
The other day the Iranian government conceded to UN demands that it send its Uranium abroad for enrichment. It was just what the Western power alliance was asking the Iranians to do under threat of further sanctions. I argued yesterday that such a move would likely upset the Israelis and the US because conceding to the demands would deprive them of a casus belli to attack them directly and that they would have to find some other way of getting at them. I figured that it would mostly likely be through one or both of Iran’s allies, Hezbollah in Lebanon and Hamas in the Gaza Strip. I never imagined that the Western allies would be so stupid as to play the dumbest piece of Chutzpah in the book by rejecting Iran’s offer to comply because – wait for it – they reckon Iran is only making the offer in order to avoid sanctions!!
Need I go on?
