Appeasement invites aggression....
Iran's Fars News Agency, which is close to the country's judiciary and most hardline government factions, has published an interview with an Iranian analyst that seems to threaten the United States with retaliation for an Israeli attack on Iran ... even if the U.S. does not join in the assault.
Gloating over Israel's isolation, the article begins:
Israel has been left alone in its threats against the Islamic Republic of Iran, an analyst said, referring to the recent allegations by the regime's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that if Israel does not eliminate the Iranian threat, no one will.
"Netanyahu acknowledged that there is no will and power in the world community to confront Iran's might and influence in the Middle East region and this shows that the visit by the Zionist regime's prime minister to Washington and the meeting he had with US president Barack Obama were completely fruitless," a senior analyst on international relations Sa'dollah Zaree'i told FNA on Sunday.
He reiterated that Israel is in a situation that has no ability to perform successful military attack against any regional country.
Noting that any aggression by the regime against Iran could merely accelerate Israel's demise, Zaree'i warned that Israel threatens Iran from a weak stance but it should know that even a small attack by the regime will be reciprocated by Iran's pounding response.
"Iran's response will not be limited to the Zionist regime but its allies will also be within Iran's range and (will be included in the) military confrontation and will pay for their support for this criminal regime," he added.
