Iran Calls Israel's Bluff
By Micah Halpern

Friday January 19, 2007

I've Been Thinking:

Iran has publicly called Israel's bluff.
For those who think that Iran is some backwater society incapable of understanding the complicated machinations of international relations - listen to this.

On January 7th the Sunday Times of London and the NY Post ran a story on how Israel has plans to attack Iran's nuclear installations.
The story was a plant, it was clearly meant to send a message to Iran.

Iran's defense minister, Mustafa Mohammed Najjar, responded to the story during a press conference held yesterday with the Sudanese Defense Minister.
He said: "This is a bluff which serves psychological operation and aims to assess the reaction of the Iranian people and officials."
Then he spoke about the United State's intentions to strike Iran, suggesting that the United States is involved in a "psychological war on Iran."

Iran totally gets it.
The West must be much more clever in sending messages to Iran.
Iran should not be able to so quickly discern Western ploys.
