Do you realize that the one and only US Secretary of Defense Mr. Robert Gates, acknowledges that Israel has nuclear weapons, thereby ‘understanding’ why Iran would like to get some?
“They are surrounded by powers with nuclear weapons – Pakistan to their east, the Russians to the north, the Israelis to the west and us in the Persian Gulf,” he told the Senate committee during his confirmation hearing.
That’s pretty big… US Middle Eastern policy is going to change drastically in the coming few months. But first, let’s give time to the regional players to adjust. All options are open for the striking/abandoning of alliances/compromises will be the talk of the day.
Meanwhile, party’s over for the 14th of March and the whole ‘cedar revolution’ bunch. They’ll find a piece to bite on, but there dreams of monopolizing the government and getting rid of Hizbullah is clearly shattered.
