#1 I have cause to suspect that secret diplomacy is ongoing, on an Article 5 (NATO) response to Iranian nuke proliferation. The Ayatollahs "Death to___ " chant targets now include most of the Allies.
See NATO 5:
"The Parties agree that an armed attack against one or more of them in Europe or North America shall be considered an attack against them all and consequently they agree that, if such an armed attack occurs, each of them, in exercise of the right of individual or collective self-defence recognised by Article 51 of the Charter of the United Nations, will assist the Party or Parties so attacked by taking forthwith, individually and in concert with the other Parties, such action as it deems necessary, including the use of armed force, to restore and maintain the security of the North Atlantic area."
A collective security agreement on a common response would imply general adoption of the "Bush Doctrine" (pre-emptive response to manifest threat challenge). Iran's proliferation game is: aggressive war preparation. Check out this "France-Echos" link, now in English (pardon the cut-and-paste):

#4 Its becoming evermore obvious that Iran's Mullahs in reality want de facto IRAN/SHIA-centric regional empire in the LT, certainly more than the per se destruction of ISRAEL, and more than the protection of Muslim, Radical Islamist, andor Sunni interests agz the West. The Mullahs ambitions are a dangerous double-edged sword aimed inevitably at both the West and Russia-China - THE MULLAHS > STOP US NOW, OR A NUCLEARIZED RADIC ISLAMIST WORLD EMPIRE IRAN SHALL BE. As indicated before, all of us Americans and Westernists, regardless of personal or political ideo or beliefs, are in a "KILL OR BE KILLED", "FIGHT OR DIE", "RULE OR BE SLAVE", etc situation, IFF ONLY BECUZ AMERICA'S ENEMIES ARE NOT GOING TO ACCEPT THE STATUS QUO VV EXPANDING AMER GLOBAL AND EXTRA-GLOBAL HYPERPOWER/HYPER-DOMINANCE +, AND ARE NOT GOING TO GIVE INNOCENT OR NEUTRAL AMERICANS ANY OTHER CHOICES. Iff America does not attack and wage war, America will be attacked and warred against -America either accepts Socialism and anti-sovereign OWG, or AMERICA AND AMERICANS WILL BE DESTROYED, PERIOD! No matter the politics of the past, and no matter how many agreements and concessions America made or makes, mainstream America is already being told that American-specific Holocaust/Genocide is good for them and the world. And by CLINTONISM, American holocaust/
genocide is okay becuz Americans demand to be destroyed anyway -= American Holocaust is what Amerikans want for our Birthdays and for XMAS.
