Possibility of War is ‘Very, Very Weak’ - Iran

Iran’s foreign ministry spokesman said on Friday that the "possibility of war is very, very weak." Ramin Mehmanparast made the remarks during a visit to Warsaw.

"At the moment, Iran has the greatest defense capability in its history. Whoever wants to attack our country, will meet with our very firm response," Mehmanparast said. "This is why our adversary completely understands that should it attack our country, it will itself become the subject of a great tragedy," he added. "This is why the possibility of war is very, very weak."

A senior Iranian lawmaker says the deployment of multiple US stealth fighters in the Persian Gulf will by no means help to provide regional security.

“The security of the region is no concern of the US. If the US was capable of establishing security in the region, it should have been able to prevent the revolutions in Tunisia, Yemen and Egypt,” Deputy head of the Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Committee Ismail Kowsari told ISNA on Saturday.

Regional security will not be provided through the deployment of US fighters, Kowsari said, adding that “It is the people of the region, not the US, who are capable of providing security in the region.”

The lawmaker said that it is not unusual for the US to reposition its fighters as Washington has several air bases in the region, including in the UAE, adding that the issue is not of much significance.

His comments came in reaction to reports stating that the US has deployed some of its most sophisticated stealth jet fighters on an allied base less than 200 miles from Iran.

Sounds just like those goons from Iraq just before they got a dose of reality.

There was never a chance of a war, because Iran had an army that would fight unlike all US and Israeli enemies of the last 40 years.

The real goons are from the U.S. and they will get a dose of reality when they realize that Iran is no Iraq.

I say that there is a greater chance of a San Jacinto/San Andreas earthquake (between 4-5.2 on the Richter scale) then Iran being attacked.

Indeed time is running out for the Israelis. In the war of the Abrahamic religions, Israel is a sitting duck, without the support of the big brother United States. In fact it would not take much to unite the collective hatred of the Arabic peninsula, with its over powering demographic majority, against the Jewish state. And who would be better than the radical state of Iran to infuriate this collective opinion!
Hence the urgency by the Israeli leadership to thwart the long term Iran and Arab world threat. Before the economic woes of America become so gargantuan that there is a shift in America's foreign policy, the Israelis want to neutralize the threat of annihilation that they face under the Iranian leadership.
The obvious policy is to use the impending US elections to rally opinion and action against Iran. Obama is not as much a war monger as his predecessors have been and this works against Israeli strategic policy. Hence the bellicose demeanor to bomb the Iranians.
IMO, the inclination to war is higher than peace as despite ironically overwhelming intelligence reports suggesting no great ambitions on the part of Iran and that too from US and Israeli agencies itself, Israel is all set to go the extra mile.
In my blog I have tried to address this delicate geo political issue keeping in mind the escalation of teh crisi and how it impacts the world's nations.
