John Bolton, ex embajador de USA ante la ONU,afirma que Israel está solo frente a Irán, y que Obama nunca va a hacer nada al respecto de su programa nuclear. Más bien parecen creer que podrán contener a los iranies de la misma forma que se contuvo a la URSS. Claramente es un error, puesto que como he dicho en pasados posts, la diferencia entre los islamistas y los comunistas sovieticos es que los primeros son capaces de morir por matar a sus enemigos mientras que los segundos jamás se matarían para destruir a USA. El MAD (Mutual Assured Destruction) no funciona con ellos.
Extractos de la entrevista a Bolton:
There is no way at this stage to prevent Iran from going nuclear without use of force. It is very unfortunate in my opinion, but I see no possibility that Obama will use military force, and therefore it falls upon Israel. I think that even though the Administration says that containment is not its policy, it will become its policy the day after Iran possesses nuclear weapons.
They won’t like it, but they do believe that a nuclear Iran can be contained, just as we contained the nuclear Soviet Union during the Cold War. Iran is not in a race for building one or two bombs. I think they believe that time is on their side and they will continue with what seems like a well thought-out plan, mostly because they believe that the United States under Obama’s leadership will do nothing. And of course, they are afraid of Israel, but I think they trust Obama to pressure Israel not to do anything, and until now this has proved right.
I think Israel, like any other country, has a legitimate right to self defense. Israel has twice attacked enemies that were developing nuclear weapons, and it has the right to do so in this case as well.
The US has much greater [military] capabilities [than Israel]. That’s why Israel wants the US to do it. I believe the US should do it because we’ll get blamed anyway. Therefore, we might as well make sure it gets done right.
I blame not only Obama, but the Bush administration. Sanctions are only good if they are comprehensive, swiftly applied and rigorously enforced. Obama has met none of those conditions.
