Iran has a far better understanding of the United States and of the West than the United States and the West have of Iran.
I have been saying this for over a year. Here is another example.
Referring to the blustering of the US Vice President and other sources in the administration about US plans and options regarding Iran, Iranian Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki recently said:
"We do not see America in a position to impose another crisis on its taxpayers inside America by starting another war in the region."
The Iranian foreign minister is flat out saying that internal issues and politics within the United States will dictate the foreign policy of the lame duck president.
Now he may very well be right.
The United States will probably not invade Iran.
However, the foreign minister is totally misreading the situation if he thinks that the US will not launch air attacks striking strategic targets in Iran.
The US will attack targets near the Iraqi border used to aid Iraqi terror groups and/or nuclear sites that are close to the point of no return in building Iran's bomb.
