Meet a top Iranian official, Hassan Abbasi, who is a well-known Iranian political scientist, longtime top official of the Revolutionary Guards, and currently “theoretician” in the office of Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei and the head of the National Security and Strategic Research Center. Abbasi holds special responsibility for North American affairs. the introduction is needed to emphasize that he is not some powerless fundie - he is a top policy maker with all the resources of the mighty Iranian army at his disposal. now, read this article, where this guy gives his opinion and probably gives away some Iranian classified information(maybe on purpose) the article also quotes a report by a leading London-based Arab newspaper saying that so, an Iranian gov't official not only encourages the masses to practice suicide bombings against US targets, it actually creates its own unit for that! wow! and, all that other stuff where it wants to invade Britain and destroy America. as i said in the beginning of the post - this is not a rant by a powerless fundie - he is the equivalent of (in my opinion) Richard Perle in his status. maybe even higher. so what should be done about this? is this threat serious? is it even a threat? consider the last Iranian elections where the conservatives disqualified over a thousand reformist MP's from candidatcy, thus leaving only hardliners to choose from for the government. in my opinion, Iran is quickly rising to superpower status with very strong anti-American ambitions, which makes it the #1 threat to the US a few years from now, far more dangerous than North Korea considering all that, should there be some sort of sanctions? covert operations? any intervention? dhimmiism? ass sucking? and what about the IAEA comedy and the Iranian nuclear ambitions? we shouldn't any of this lightly.
