Red Line Gets Redder

Kerry Beats the Drum for Talks on Iran but War Drums Grow Louder

Kerry still pushes for talk and talks on Iran, but the US delegate to the IAEA accuses Iran of “deception.” Kerry admits Iran is bringing a military strike closer to reality.”

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry told ABC that Iran’s failure to negotiate makes “confrontation more possible,” and hours later, the American delegate to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) accused Iran of “deception, defiance and delay” while it enriches uranium.

Kerry has jumped into his new position with the full character of the State Dept. to solve the world’s problems with talk, but the unusually harsh comments from Joseph Macmanus, the chief U.S. delegate to the IAEA, indicates that the noose is tightening around Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

So far, he seems to believe that the United States is bluffing about a military strike and is making a show to keep Israel quiet.

However, the more the Obama administration, sees Iranian nuclear capability as a threat to the United States, the closer everyone gets to the red line to talk with action and not words.

“I’m not going to get into red lines and timing publicly except to reiterate what the president has said again and again, which is he prefers to have a diplomatic solution,” Kerry told ABC News in Qatar.

“If they keep pushing the limits and not coming with a serious set of proposals or are prepared to actually resolve this, obviously, the risks get higher and confrontation becomes more possible,” he said.

Joseph Macmanus’ comment blew holes into the recent complacency of the international community, which was soothed by Iran’s expression of being interested in  proposals by the world’s six powers.

Even the European Union appears to be getting fed up with Iran.

The EU told the IAEA board in Vienna Wednesday that it “considers … Iran’s procrastination to be unacceptable.”

Iran has refused IAEA requests to visit the Parchin military site, where satellite pictures have shown explosive tests probably were carried out for  nuclear weapons capability.

Prime Minister Netanyahu said this week, not for the first time, that Iran is using the negotiations and talks of negotiations as a camouflage for its nuclear weapons program.

Tehran, of course, insists its nuclear development is only for peace and is counting on more talks to erase any American red lines.

“We are committed to continue our dialogue with the IAEA but at the same time we can’t give a blank check” because of Iran’s national security concerns, Iranian Ambassador Ali Asghar Soltanieh told reporters in Vienna.

Kerry notwithstanding, louder voices are being increasingly heard from the most senior American officials.

Gen. James Mattis, head of U.S. Central Command, told a Senate committee on Tuesday, “I’m paid to take a rather dim view of the Iranians, frankly.”

Looking at the future of a military strike, he stated, “There are number of means to do that, perhaps even short of open conflict. But certainly that’s one of the options that I have to have prepared for the president.”

  1. The Department of Homeland security in the United States is said to control at least 7 detention camps that sit empty, just waiting for occupants. The same DOHS now has thousands of automatic weapons and over 1 billion rounds of ammunition. The same DOHS now has several drones flying in America’s air space. Out of sight but not out of mind. The same DOHS about a year and a half(I’m not precise on when the purchase was made) ago purchased just about every long term storage meal that could be purchased. The DOHS has turned into an internal Army within the US and has done so little by little and has not declared them selves armed in this manner. The DOHS has also listed people who are Christian, ex-military and those who believe in prophecy as potential terrorists and will not change that position despite being told they must by several representatives and an outcry by those of us who were paying attention. We have been labeled as likely terrorists despite having no recorded terroristic acts reported that I am aware of. Now we here that these drones will be allowed to use force in the United States against it’s own citizens IF the conditions are right. Conditions such as 911. How about conditions such as a war with Iran? What if some terror cells within the US go active while we fight a war with Iran? Does that give the DOHS the right then to also go after Christians in the US because they are on a list of potential terrorists? I think that is a likely possibility due to the fact that we are the main political opposition to the President. I think we are in deep trouble. I want the DOHS to be stopped and would encourage you to write your representative to take immediate steps to stop this activity and to disarm to a large degree the DOHS.

  2. Barefoot Prince says:

    I could not agree MORE. the government is not on the side of democracy but of dictatorship. Dictators cannot allow those who do not fall in line to remain free. Lies abound this administration. An honorable president has no use for lies. This, in my opinion, should be seen by every honest person as a huge red flag. The plagues are just beginning.

  3. John Kerry had his "nails done" as preparation for the 2004 Presidential debates. Does that tell you anything about who we have sent to Iran/Mid-East to solve the u.S. problems? Obama has such a knack for adding to his administration the biggest losers the U.S. can come up with. We are in deep trouble people!
