The drum of war approaches:
The five U.N. Security Council powers moved closer to an agreement on Wednesday on a statement that would call on Iran to suspend parts of its suspect nuclear program that could be used to build weapons.
Not unlike Iraq, let’s be under no illusion that the US is only using the UN as a cover for future military or aggressive manoeuvres against Iran. Maybe the Islamic state should threaten to invade Washington DC. Besides:
The George W Bush administration failed to enter into negotiations with Iran on its nuclear program in May 2003 because neo-conservatives who advocated destabilization and regime change were able to block any serious diplomatic engagement with Tehran, according to former administration officials.
