Heard Roger Cohen on the radio earlier today say this gem: "To give Americans an idea of what the fiercely independent political atmosphere is in Iran, take Texas, and add 5000 years of history, and that gives you some idea."
He also spoke about how 70% of Iranian citizens are pro-American while the official government position is anti-American, in contrast to most of the Middle East, Egypt for example, where at least 70% of the population is strongly anti-American yet the government is staunchly pro-American.
For Israel to bomb Iran's nuclear facilities, would unleash massive destruction not just in the Middle East, but all over the world, and be extremely unproductive. Il faut voir.
