Bizarre dimensions in West-initiated drama on Iran nuclear energy program
(Ahlul Bayt News Agency) - After decades of cries of foul and mass indoctrination of the Western public about the dangers posed by Iran's nuclear energy program, Israel’s Chief of Staff Lieutenant General Benny Gantz has done an about-face by saying he does not believe Iran will pursue nuclear weapons: Boom, boom, tisch…
The Israeli daily Ha’aretz published an interview with Gantz on Wednesday, where he described Iran's leadership as “very rational” and not likely to make a decision to manufacture nukes. So it's back to the drawing board for the corporate sponsored Western media who will now have to trot off to find ways to reverse 33 years of falsehoods about Iran.
But wait, over in Moscow, the Russian media is equally confused, gob-smacked or even goulash-whipped. Russia's Chief of General Staff Nikolay Makarov was recently asked by Russia Today whether Moscow admitted there was a growing atomic threat from Iran and North Korea, to which the General replied: The threat is always there.
Makarov also said, “The very fact that we (Russia and the West) agreed to produce a joint anti-missile system implies that we recognize that the threat is there.”
Does President Putin know anything about this joint venture? Because the last time we heard about it, Moscow and Washington were still at loggerheads over the entire missile system business.
So this is a double, double role reversal: a plot adapted by only the very bravest - and financially solvent - producers in theater or film. Within the messy world of politics though, even the greatest blockbusters can apparently be topped in producing unexpected dramatic finishes.
Let's look at this from another angle. Curtain raisers have also been a favorite routine in theaters for centuries. With the new P5+1-Iran meeting scheduled for some time in May, we should expect more such displays from various quarters. In fact, the entire Iranian atomic energy program's play began with a command performance from the West. However, their thespians overplayed their allocated parts to such an extent that the command performance has now been relegated to "a theater near you," complete with a group of local players putting in their curtain raisers in search of fame.
In theatrical plays, extras play dead and any damage done to the set can be tidied up after each performance. The tragedy of the Western introduction of amateur dramatics into politics is that, in the real world, there is no room for getting things wrong with a country the size and geo-political/geo-strategic importance of Iran.
After years of wrangling, libeling and trying to belittle Iran and impede its progress, the West appears to have come to its senses and, on the face of it, seems serious about resolving the affair. But even if this is another Western attempt in the Iran atomic energy program drama, let the script writers be warned that bit part actors can still spoil or indeed steal the entire show.
