“We have two nightmares,” the former diplomat told me. “For Iran to acquire the bomb and for the United States to attack Iran. I’d rather the Israelis bomb the Iranians, so we can blame them. If America does it, we will be blamed.”I could quote from Hersh's article all day. Rather, I'm going to suggest you take a few moments and give it a read. Hersh does a great job summarizing the complexities of the whole situation including the extreme involvement of the Saudi's in American decision-making. Once again, the U.S. is hostage to our SUV proclivities. What may be most disturbing is the tendency for the Saudi/U.S. plan in the middle east to actually be embracing elements of the Sunni al Qaeda! The ironies are enough to kill ya.
I'm a very lucky person with every allergy known to man but still happy to be enjoying a wonderful life living in the best place in the world!
