Und wie reagiert die Obama Administration auf die vereitelten iranischen Anschlagspläne? So:
“We’re going to work with allies and partners to send Iran a message: we don’t tolerate the targeting of foreign diplomats on our soil,” said a senior administration official, who spoke on condition of anonymity.
Sie senden eine Message. Ganz multilateral. Drohen sie etwa, den Dialog auszusetzen? Oder gehen sie zum UN-Sicherheitsrat, wo dann Rußland und China ihr Veto einlegen werden?
Zu der völlig gescheiterten Iran-Politik der USA hat Alana Goodmann die richtigen Worte gefunden:
If Iran feels safe planning a U.S.-based attack now, imagine how much more blatant its aggression would be if it had nuclear weapons. Some people like to pretend Israel is the only country that would be seriously threatened by a nuclear Iran. This case is a prime example of how wrong that assumption is.
So far, the Obama administration is handling the plot as a law enforcement issue, even filing charges against an Iran-based member of the Al-Qud’s forces reportedly involved in the alleged attack. Meanwhile, Eric Holder has explicitly pointed a finger at Iran, indicating the administration sees this as a state-sanctioned plot. If that’s the case, taking the law enforcement approach will be a signal to Iran the U.S. will tolerate its belligerence.
