November 26, 2013 (Tony Cartalucci) - "...any military operation against Iran will likely be very unpopular around the world and require the proper international context—both to ensure the logistical support the operation would require and to minimize the blowback from it. The best way to minimize international opprobrium and maximize support (however, grudging or covert) is to strike only when there is a widespread conviction that the Iranians were given but then rejected a superb offer—one so good that only a regime determined to acquire nuclear weapons and acquire them for the wrong reasons would turn it down. Under those circumstances, the United States (or Israel) could portray its operations as taken in sorrow, not anger, and at least some in the international community would conclude that the Iranians “brought it on themselves” by refusing a very good deal." -Brookings Institution's 2009 "Which Path to Persia?" report, page 52. Written years ago, as the US, Saudi Arabia, and Israel were already plotting to overrun Iran's neighbor and ally Syria with Al Qaeda to weaken the Islamic Republic before inevitable war, this quote exposes fully the current charade that is the "Iran nuclear deal." http://landdestroyer.blogspot.co.uk/2013/11/nuclear-deal-with-iran-prelude-to-war.html Looks like we're still sticking to the plan. The old "trick em n stick em" ploy. Karzai is right not to trust these guys. Had to look the word "opprobrium" up in the dictionary. Examples of OPPROBRIUM They're going ahead with the plan despite public opprobrium.
