A Large Tent For Afghanistan
In his meeting with the Foreign Ministers of NATO last week, Hillary Clinton showed to the world one of the most important changes in the foreign policy of the White House. On the meeting in Afghanistan said: If we organize this kind of meeting, is expected to be invite to Iran as a neighbor who is in Afghanistan. A prominent leader of Iran – the hard core of the axis of evil in the Bush era – will be convened to meet with their counterparts from the United States and other countries to treat that, today, is a serious problem which is of concern to the United States and its allies: find the mode to end the military intervention in Afghanistan. The invitation also has his little trap, although this may seem innocent. A month ago, Obama sent a secret letter, which soon ceased to be so because the same Obama alluded to it after Russian President Medvedev. Proposed you holding simultaneous talks on the shield missile of the United States, whose planned deployment partial in Europe bothers to Moscow, and about Iranian nuclear intentions. Obama expressed it this way: is natural that if we halt the Iranian intentions do with nuclear weapons, will be less our need for a missile defense.
There are two aspects that Obama not alluded to, but which must be taken into account. The first is that, most likely, Russia is not able to exert enough pressure on Iran to twist its nuclear course. Prominent Russian analysts strongly remember that Iran is not a country of lower order. Include its millenary history, national pride and its traditional rejection of external pressures. It is not far in the memory of the Iranian people, the memory of the expulsion of the first Minister Mossadeq, caused by United States and the United Kingdom when he tried to nationalize the Iranian oil.
