Opinion on Current situation in Iran: Seymour Hersh April 2, 2007Posted by Muhammad in Uncategorized.
Seymour Hersh’s opinion in Iraq was elicited from a question by Danny Schechter.
- The Iranians are tremendous negotiatiors and know what they are doing, with the situation with the British prisoners now, the situation is very well considered. While the American government is going on about sanctions and the UN and Ahmedinedjad being in trouble, Iran is saying “Come on, We’re Ready…” They’re calling our bluff.
- On top of this, even American media have reported that there exists no real evidence of a bomb in Iran. Tony Blair is even backing off to avoid the risk of following blindly the way he had done with the non-existent WMD’s in Iraq.
- Technically, it is also a hard sell to just go and “Bomb Iran”. The US hasn’t been in the Iranian straits for ages due to the low maneuverability of the aircraft in that area. Ordinary people just don’t understand what goes into planning and implementing a military campaign.
