Iran is buying time until it has a nuclear break-out capability. The belief and hope that Iran has changed is pathetic. The US must act militarily to stop Iran and restore its credibility in the eyes of its skeptical Middle Eastern allies.
The Iranians have once again been successful in pushing the West into prolonged negotiations over their nuclear program. They have done so almost for two decades, and in the meantime have expanded their uranium enrichment program, worked on weaponization, and built long-range missiles. This indicates without a doubt that they are after a nuclear bomb.
The belief and hope that Iran has changed is pathetic. It is obviously interested in removing the economic sanctions imposed on it by the international community, but what Iran is really after is not an agreement, as its gullible interlocutors tend to believe, but rather time. Iran needs time, probably months, to present the world with a fait accompli: a nuclear break-out capability, i.e. the infrastructure to assemble a nuclear arsenal within weeks.
Modus operandi (plural modi operandi) is a Latin phrase, approximately translated as "method of operation".The term is used to describe someone's habits of working, particularly in the context of business or criminal investigations. In English, it is often shortened to M.O.
. I'm for popcorn with real organic melted butter, a bout a "B" grade Vermont maple syrup and Mediterranean sea salt. A nice double IPA, from Rock Art or the Alchemist micro breweries., nice and cold as beverage. Let the sociopathic, testosterone laden jackasses kill each other. It is what they have chosen. I for one am bored with all the melodrama. Bring us a gay musical! Take us back to a time when gay was just gay and not GAY. Let's see Hillary star as Fanny Brice in "Funny Goil " (it"s all in Yiddish).
Now there's a scenario and a half I had not considered as the opening volley, Iran attacking Saudi Arabia. What does the rest of the world do? Buy popcorn or join in?
