Adevărurile bine rostite de Richard Haass

Fost diplomat în Departamentul de Stat, Richard Haass este, actualmente, preşedintele lui Council on Foreign Relations, centrul de reflecţie şi animatorul de acţiune politică în sfera internaţională, despre care unii afirmă că face parte din Oculta Mondială. Probabil. Dar, din moment ce poţi citi studiile, articolele şi alte publicaţii ale membrilor CFR, nu văd ce mai poate fi considerat ocult.

Haass a publicat în Financial Times o opinie privind dosarul nuclear iranian şi implicaţiile acestuia. Bun simţ politic, echilibru şi inteligenţă diplomatică. Cam asta rezultă din articolul cu titlul "A different regime change in Iran." Ceva ce expediază prăfuita abordare neoconservatoare undeva în paleoliticul gândirii geopolitice. Mai jos, urmează câteva extrase care gravitează în jurul ideii fundamentale, conform căreia "What should shape the response is not simply what Iran develops in the laboratory, but how it develops politically."

"This line of thinking weighs against a military strike by Israel or the US on Iranian nuclear facilities. Such a strike would at best delay the Iranian programme: it is impossible to destroy what is unknown, and it is not always possible to destroy what is known if the target is well-shielded. An attack would also trigger extensive Iranian retaliation in Iraq and Afghanistan. The oil price could triple to more than $200 a barrel in a matter of hours, choking off global economic recovery.

Just as important, a military strike on Iran would make it impossible for anyone inside the country to challenge the government lest he or she appear to be unpatriotic. The Revolutionary Guard, who lack legitimacy after stealing June’s presidential election and turning Iran from a theocracy into a thugocracy, would gain a new lease of life. They would also have the perfect argument for making the rebuilding of Iran’s nuclear program the highest priority.

If Iran is sincere about being willing to reassure the international community about its nuclear activities, fine. If not, new sanctions should be introduced that target assets owned by the 125,000-strong Revolutionary Guard (who just acquired a majority share of the country’s telecommunications company), and the oil and gas sector so central to Iran’s economy. Russian and Chinese support (and United Nations endorsement) should be viewed as desirable but not essential."

Haass mai spune un lucru fundamental şi, totodată, frumos în articolul său: "What matters as much as, or more, than a country’s capability is its character." Încercaţi şi voi, americanilor, să conştientizaţi că adevărul ăsta vi se aplică şi vouă...
