It’s a Win-Win for Iran

Interesting article – from RIA Novosti.

…It is clear, though, that Iran does not need the bomb. Whom would it drop it on? The United States is far away, and an attack on Israel would kill not only Jews but also Arabs in both Israel and the Palestinian territories. It is abundantly clear that the Islamic Republic of Iran, with its aspirations to Muslim leadership, would not dare kill millions of its brethren-in-faith.

The bomb has no practical use. Most probably, Tehran plans to stop at the five-minute-readiness level, that is, one step before the bomb. This would allow the Iranian leaders to enjoy unheard-of prestige at home, dominate the Muslim world, and dictate its terms to the West.

Iran is already talking with everyone from a position of strength because it feels invulnerable and is not afraid of an American attack. The Americans are stuck in Iraq and cannot afford to launch another military land operation. Pinpoint air strikes at nuclear facilities may delay the Iranian nuclear program for several years but will not change the regime….

    I can only speak for myself, something more people should learn to do. I am against war. All wars for any reason. If that makes me Liberal, that’s wonderful. If that makes me a Commie or a Iraqi sympathizer, I’m down with it. Because there are only two possibilities in a nuclear age – total peace or total destruction. This ain’t 1860. This ain’t Napoleon taking Europe in 1792. If the world doesn’t make PEACE its single goal, there are grounds to argue we won’t make it another 50 years.

    “meanness is not an attribute many people consider a positive for a president,” but then most people are sincerely and frighteningly clueless when it comes to the characteristics our rulers, who by and large are inbred sociopaths and psychopaths, find necessary and appealing.
