1st Do Iran, Then Do Palestine

As 44 does his world problem juggling act it's kinda like watching girls do Jäger bombs chased down with Jello shooters and then engaging in a demanding dance regime - it is not done that well, yet one is surprised to find it done at all.

Two probs in particular are the Palestine/Little Satan forever quest and the new clear issue with Persia's Preacher Command.

"Diplomacy is often the art of is the art of thinking twice before saying nothing," so the recent free flow of ideas at the Aspen Idea Festival seemed highly significant when Arab Emirates Ambassador Usef al-Otaiba said attacking Iran would be absolutely awesome!

"Absolutely, absolutely. I think we are at risk of an Iranian nuclear program far more than you are at risk. At 7,000 miles away, and with two oceans bordering you, an Iranian nuclear threat does not threaten the continental United States. It may threaten your assets in the region, it will threaten the peace process, it will threaten balance of power, it will threaten everything else, but it will not threaten you."

"Every day the Emirati Military wake up, dream, breathe, eat, sleep the Iranian threat."

Whoa! Hold up Sheik Ambassador! Wouldn't such an event totally ruin the world with all kind of problems?

"Problems with people protesting and rioting and very unhappy that there is an outside force attacking a Muslim country? That is going to happen no matter what."

Compared to an oath breaking nuked up illegit regime with a penchant for tormenting their neighbors, their own dear daughters and any democracy in weapons range is the Great Satan option a choice easily eased into?

"If you are asking me, am I willing to live with that versus living with a nuclear Iran? My answer is still the same."

44's insistence on something something Palestine über alles instead of doing what wicked realists and wishful progressives should be wanting to do - prevent a regional stability mix queering event like a terrorist loving new clear Mullahopolis -

"...has given the pressing Iran issue less attention than its quixotic quest for a final peace between Israelis and Palestinians, which is a misplaced priority. The Palestinian issue has been around for decades, and there is no immediate need to resolve it, even assuming that is possible.

"...It poses no threat to the United States, and when it periodically reaches a boiling point, it can be contained. Arab states especially can live without a near-term resolution of the Palestinian issue, which does not materially affect their national interests.

"...A nuclear Iran would pose an immediate, existential threat to states in the Gulf region. And unlike the Palestinian problem, which can be left to simmer, the Iranian nuclear threat is on a rapidly diminishing timeline. It needs to be addressed urgently and decisively.

"...Absolutely, absolutely.
