My Photo
Location: Zurich, Switzerland

Je suis beau et intelligent. À part cela, je suis juriste helvète, libéral-conservateur, amateur d'armes, passionné d'histoire et de politique. Je suis libéral et capitaliste convaincu car je pense que c'est cela l'état naturel de l'homme. Je parle le "Schwiizerdütsch" avec un accent zurichois, j'adore la bonne musique, la bière et surtout la femme avec qui je vis.

U.S.: Giving in to blackmail?

Great. The mollahs are going to get what they wanted and they won't even have to do it by themselves. Via Ynet:
Diplomats: US to supply nuclear technology to Iran

Diplomatic sources say Washington willing to provide Islamic republic with nuclear technology if country stops enriching uranium; Tehran to be offered additional incentives by Western powers. Iran foreign minister says country will 'seriously study' proposal

In a surprising concession, the United States is prepared to provide Iran with some nuclear technology if it stops enriching uranium, diplomats said Tuesday.

The offer was part of a package of incentives presented to Tehran Tuesday by European Union foreign policy chief Javier Solana, the diplomats, who were familiar with the proposals, said.
Is this already the final phase, are we on the edge of a "peaceful settlement"? I don't think so. Iran will go on gambling and ask for further concessions. They are likely to get what they want. It seems that Condoleeza Rice and Javier Solana are wiling to give in (with regard to the latter it is of course no surprise).

This has probably also to be considered to be part of the weaker more moderate approach to foreign politics of the Bush administration in its second term. I guess this is Condoleeza Rice's influence. I'm afraid though that this moderate approach could well turn out a to be Boomerang. For what should hinder a prevailing Iran to demand for more after it got what it had asked for in the first round, and why then not use this new U.S. technology as a "strong argument"? The U.S. and the EU are about to engage themselves on a vicious cylce of endless blackmailing and concession-making.

It would be disastrous if the U.S. had accepted Iran as a nuclear regional power. This would considerably alter the balance of power in the Middle East, since Iran would of course give heavy support to anti-western forces in Lebanon, Syria, Irak, the Westbank, Gaza, etc. This would be a very serious situation. Until recently, the Europeans considered it to be unacceptable to have Iran being able to reach Bordeaux with nucelar missiles. Has this changed now?
