Hal posits, "Iran has just received their 7th shipment of 11 tons of nuclear fuel from Russia. That brings their total amount of fuel received from Russia to date to 77 metric tons of nuclear fuel rods. The news says they need around 82-85 tons total. (I’m thinking 88 tons total, 8 shipments of 11 tons each.)"
constantly uses the most provocative language possible. He’s a known
Revolutionary Guard fanatic from the Khomeini days, when a million
people were killed in the Iran-Iraq war, some of them in blind suicide
charges across minefields. A’jad sounds like a religious nut, but he’s
shrewd enough to use even his martyrdom complex to intimidate and
provoke his enemies.
So there could be method in his madness.
He may be deliberately trying to draw Israel and the US into a long and
costly conflict, relying on domestic political pressure to force a
humiliating retreat, just as Hezbollah did in last summer’s Lebanon war.
As a side benefit, he may expect his own domestic opponents to be
forced to rally around him. Since he is running for re-election in the
rigged Mullahcracy, war can only benefit him.
John Bolton just talked about the Iran threat at a conference in Israel. Said Bolton:"… the pre-emptive use of force … has to come before
they get the (nuclear) weapon. … in the next year the use of force by
the United States is highly unlikely … That increases the pressure on
Israel … if it feels Iran is on the verge of acquiring (nuclear)
capability, it brings the decision point home to use force." (emphasis
added)"A senior Israeli security official said in reaction that ‘one should listen very closely to what Bolton has to say.’"Do you need more of a hint?
we may see the most dangerous confrontation since the Cuban Missile
Crisis of 1962. Ahmadi-Nejad and the Khomeinist regime have been
preparing this for thirty years. They’ve had plenty of time to
choregraph the moves.
If Israel is compelled to act while the
United States is paralyzed by our obstructionist Left, Ahmadi-Nejad may
finally see his chance. All of his actions in office suggest that he is
trying to force Israel and the West into a corner where he thinks he
can win. Defeating the formidable Israel military is his biggest chance
to become the celebrated star of the Middle East.
Now – get really depressed. Watch the asshats at Davos
Webcast: Understanding Iran’s Foreign Policy (including Amb.
Khalilzad, our Muslim at the UN, was on an Iran panel on Saturday in Davos. The moderator who is from the International Crisis
Group gives a gorgeous introduction to Zal and lists his last qualification as
the “formidable advantage of having a name that is not John Bolton’s.” Zal is
joined on the panel by the Iranian Foreign Minister and Ahmadinejad’s personal
advisor. Lovely people.
UPDATE: That Davos meeting with the Iranians and our Ambassador to the UN was put on by the ICG–funded by Soros, employer of Obama’s foreign sdvisor Malley, and employer of the obnoxious moderator Gareth Evans-who mocked our guy-Bolton. Evans has co-written articles with Malley.
