The U.S. is “not setting deadlines” for Iran and still considers negotiations as “by far the best approach” to prevent the Islamic Republic from developing nuclear weapons, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said.
U.S. ‘Not Setting Deadlines’ for Iran, Clinton Says, Business Week, September 10, 2012
When it comes drawing red lines for Iran, the Obama administration appears to be rather squeamish -- to the extent that at this late date Hillary still insists that negotiations are "by far the best approach".
In contrast, Iran does not suffer from such illusions.
In fact, Iran has decided to draw some red lines of its own.
You see, though Obama claims to have Israel's back while taking no measure that has yet succeeded in slowing Iran down in its quest to become a nuclear power -- Iran has taken very concrete steps in propping up its partner-in-terror in Syria.
The Telegraph reported last month that as a result, Iran's supreme leader orders fresh terror attacks on West based on a new internal report it has drawn up:
It advised that the Iranian regime should demonstrate to the West that there were "red lines" over what it would accept in Syria, and that a warning should be sent to "America, the Zionists, Britain, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and others that they cannot act with impunity in Syria and elsewhere in the region."Al Quds is the group that has been implicated in a series of terrorist attacks against the West:
Mr Khamenei responded by issuing a directive to Qassem Suleimani, the Quds Force commander, to intensify attacks against the West and its allies around the world.
- Last year's failed assassination attempt against the Saudi Arabian ambassador to Washington
- Three bomb attacks against Israeli diplomats in February
- A planned attack at the Eurovision song contest in Azerbaijan
- In July two Iranians were arrested in Kenya for possessing explosives
Qassem Suleimani is apparently the mastermind behind the killing of more Americans than anyone, according to a Telegraph article in the U.K. that alleges this man to be the world's most dangerous terrorist since Osama bin Laden. As head of the Quds Force, Suleimani not only works with Hezbollah in Lebanon, he has also plotted and executed mass murder in dozens of countries.The question remains whether the West is going to do anything about any of this.
