When Iran “negotiated” in Vienna did they refuse to share the same hotel with the American delegation as led by America’s pro-Islamist Iran envoy Rob Malley. They accelerated their nuclear weapons program during the “indirect negotiations”. Now Iran even refuses to engage in “indirect negotiations” with the US while stunningly claiming to “want to return to negotiations”. Iran continues to race to the bomb with only weeks left until having enough nuclear materials for assembling a nuclear weapon.
Yet, the world seems to believe that all this is somehow merely “negotiation tactics”. The combination of cynicism and naiveté is truly breathtaking. There is no doubt that the Iranian regime is sophisticated, yet its success in pulling the wool over the eyes of the world could even be admired as a successful diplomatic effort in sophisticated deception.
Yet, so much is at stake and Iran’s neighbors are absolutely terrified. They live in absolute fear and particularly so Saudi Arabia. Israel issues only very briefly worded threats as it prepares to launch a series of preemptive strikes to strategically degrade the Iranian nuclear weapons program and subsequently launch a defensive war against Hezbollah in Lebanon/Syria in response to the expected missile barrage against Tel Aviv and other Israeli cities.
Nevertheless, the moment of truth is approaching as the Iranian nuclear clock is ticking. Israel cannot permit Iran to even attain nuclear threshold status as that would pose an intolerable threat to Israel. The so-called “international community” is plainly making itself irrelevant on the matter.
