Turnabout, Fair, and All That

The Emperor in Chief and his minions are currently focussing on Iran in a way that is more than slightly reminiscent of the run-up to the invasion of Iraq. As long as the military option remains on the table, we have to be worried, especially since the nature of the targets in Iran invites the use of tactical nuclear weapons by the unstable junta we refer to as BushCo. Unlike Iraq, however, Iran has a functioning military and a fairly homogenous society who would not take kindly to this kind of "interference." Already the US sabre rattling has provoked similar responses from the leadership in Iran, including one rather startling suggestion proposed in the state controlled Iranian news outlet Aftab News.

The head of the political party, the Alliance of Builders of Islamic Iran, Hasan Bayadi [who is Vice President of the Tehran City Council], has suggested to the Iranian Ministry of defense that it conduct war games near American border to show the strength of Iran's military.

...Every year the American military conducts war games near countries which are unfriendly toward the United States, such as North Korea, Syria or Iran, to show them how mighty the U.S. military is, and just as they have invaded our own air space and territorial waters. They say it is unintentional – and use the occupations of Iraq and Afghanistan as a pretext - to send us a message. And what is the message of these invasions of our airspace? The message is, "We can attack you whenever we wish; you will find no shelter from our military threats; and the shadow of fear will perpetually hang over your countries ..."

Therefore, we, recommend to the new Iranian defense minister Mostafa Mohammad-Najjar that he take the initiative and prepare a military exercise with nations in the Western Hemisphere, such as Cuba and Venezuela.

...Bayadi ends his suggestion by stating that such war games with our allies in the region, near the U.S. border, would pave the way for military cooperation with other governments in the region. They would also provide a platform for Iran's military to show the world, especially the Imperialists, how strong Iran really is. Finally would also be an opportunity and to Iran's great advantage for the Iranian armed services to test their powers against those of our allies overseas.
[Emphasis added]

Fortunately, I was able to swallow the mouthful of coffee I had just taken when I read this piece, but then I was struck by the fact that Iran could probably pull this off with a little financial assistance from its allies (Russia, China, even Venezuela), and I have no doubt that Hugo Chavez, who does have sense of humor, would go along with the plan. After all, how could the US justify stopping any such exercise?

The result, of course, would be a heightening of the tensions on the issue at a time when ratcheting up the heat is the last thing the world needs or wants. Still, embarrassing the Emperor does have a certain appeal, I must admit.
