I Declare The Charade With Iran Over!
I have actually been declaring it over for as long as I can remember, but the game goes on. October 1st is the newest installment with all of the players meeting in Geneva. These include the United States, Russia, China, Britain, France and Germany along with the returning champion Iran. This show will be hosted by Soupy Sales.
Why is this Iranian crisis the equivalent of a bad game show? Let’s take a closer look at some of the players, their thoughts and their actions:
“God willing, this plant will be put into operation soon, and will blind the eyes of the enemies,” Head of Supreme Leader’s Office Hojjatoleslam Mohammad Mohammadi Golpayegani
(The Australian) “Hossein Salami, air force commander of the Revolutionary Guards, said that today there would be a test-firing of a long-range missile Iran says has a range of 1300-2000km and is capable of hitting arch-foe Israel.” This test firing came on Sunday, days before the Geneva meetings.
(Digital Journal) Iran announced its intent to continue with its missile tests, moving to mid-range missiles on Sunday evening and to new “upgraded long-range missiles” on Monday. The mid-range varieties are believed to be capable of reaching targets within Israel. The tests on Monday coincide with the holy Jewish holiday of Yom Kippur, an echo of the 1973 Arab attack on Israel.
President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad: “I fundamentally raise two questions regarding the Holocaust … The first question is that assuming the Holocaust did happen, where did it exactly happen and who were the perpetrators? The second question is how exactly does that connect to the Palestinian issue?”
“It is always welcome when Iran makes a decision to comply with the international rules and regulations, and particularly with respect to the IAEA,” Hillary Clinton, United States Secretary of State
“While you don’t take options off the table, I think there’s still room left for diplomacy,” United States Secretary of Defense Robert Gates
(Hays Daily News) President Obama says: “Iran is on notice that when we meet with them on Oct. 1 they are going to have to come clean and they are going to have to make a choice” between international isolation and giving up any aspirations to becoming a nuclear power, he said. If they refuse to give ground, they will stay on “a path that is going to lead to confrontation.”
President Obama: “If the governments of Iran and North Korea choose to ignore international standards; if they put the pursuit of nuclear weapons ahead of regional stability and the security and opportunity of their own people; if they are oblivious to the dangers of escalating nuclear arms races in both East Asia and the Middle East – then they must be held accountable.” Really? What do these words actually mean? More rhetoric.
Netanyahu: “This Iranian regime is fueled by an extreme fundamentalism that burst onto the world scene three decades ago after lying dormant for centuries.
In the past thirty years, this fanaticism has swept the globe with a murderous violence and cold-blooded impartiality in its choice of victims. It has callously slaughtered Moslems and Christians, Jews and Hindus, and many others.”
Israel on the other hand will not allow the game to drag on. Therefore, my money is on them to win, because they do not have the option of losing.
In the event missiles are launched, the safe bet is that Israel will be the first target. As a result, they are willing to act unilaterally, and may very well be forced to do so. The reason is that the other players on its team are not playing to win, but to run out the game clock. That is the equivalent of the prevent defense which only prevents one thing, winning.
This is not really a game, it is serious business. Not only for Israel, but for the entire world community.
