Iran shows a card. Following the highly suspect US/Iran talks that took place this past week, Iran has made it very clear as to where they stand. “Iran: ‘We Are Still Anti-American’ Says Top Ayatollah,” from AKI:
Tehran, 1 June (AKI) – Ayatollah Ahmad Jannati, a close aide of Iran’s supreme leader Seyyed Ali Khamenei, and the head of the powerful Guardians’ Council watchdog, said Friday. Tehran remains “anti-American and a foe of the United States” despite the first high level talks between the two countries in three decades which took place earlier this month in Baghdad. Jannati, who was addressing faithful during prayers at Tehran’s university, stressed that the “talks in Baghdad do not change in the least the anti-American policies of the Islamic Republic.”
“If the Americans want to guarantee a certain level of security to their citizens they must pull out of Iraq and abandon the region,” he added.
Notice that even if the US were to “abandon the region” (which obviously includes Israel as well as Iraq), only a “certain level” of security could be guaranteed. Who says it’s all about the “occupation”?
