The War Drums
Iran. Persia. Bob Baer, former CIA field officer and, consequently One of America’s foremost specialists on Iran puts our future relationship in succinct terms:
- Make a power-sharing deal with the Persians over the transport of oil through the Gulf, or
- Attack (or bait them into attacking the oil producing facilities in the gulf region), thus shocking the world economy into a severe and long lasting depression, committing U.S troops into a 30 year war, a reinstatement of the draft which culminates in the permanent decline of this country and Persian control of the Persian Gulf.
These are the choices.
