Ich frage mich, ob dieser Artikel aus der Zeitung „The New York Sun“ (Link) von einer deutschen Zeitung übersetzt oder wenigstens mal referiert würde? Wetten wir – nichts dergleichen?
Der Autor stellt eine hypothetische Behauptung auf:
In reality, there are plenty of much worse outcomes than an airstrike against Iran, even leaving aside the one that the Iranian president says would be his best-case scenario: the end of the world, ushered in by the destruction of all infidels. Let’s consider one less dramatic but more likely scenario.
Und antwortet darauf mit einem wahrhaftig apokalyptischen Szenario. Sein Fazit:
I make no apology for doom-mongering. The stakes could not be higher. If the Bush administration is serious about negotiating with Iran, Ms. Rice must go into these talks with one aim in mind: stopping the Iranian nuclear time bomb. Sitting down with the Iranians is already a concession. It should be the last one. Mr. Bush needs to use these meetings to send a signal to Tehran that they won’t forget. For in reality, I doubt whether Mr. Apocalyptejad would be as restrained as the above scenario presumes. If he once gets the bomb and the means to deliver it, everybody in Israel knows what will happen next. The rest is silence.
