I have been watching more TV than my usual quota of 5 minute per week. Yesterday Zakaria was talking to Robert Baer – ex CIA, author of “The devil we know: Dealing with the New Iranian Superpower.”
The conversation was something like the following (not the exact words, you’ll have to find the program on CNN website to get the exact sentences):
Zakaria: Is it true that the US is meddling in Iran?
The question is funny to begin with – as if Mr. Baer would start to explain us the meddling-plans if there were any. Nevertheless you won’t be disappointed by the answer:
Baer: No, we have minor operations in Afghanistan and Iraq (to destabilize Iran), they are carried out just to appease the hawks in the Congress.
Can someone get some Valium or dope for Congress’ hawks so they are “appeased” in a less costly and deadly manner?
