The US-Iran sound bite showdown
By Pepe Escobar
They just can't keep from going at each other's throats.
Just in time for President George W Bush's special guest appearance at the 60th anniversary of the founding of Israel, his ultimate nemesis, Iranian President Mahmud Ahmadinejad, unleashed another rhetorical shot across the bow as his own way of "celebrating" the anniversary.
And once again the substance of what Ahmadinejad actually said risks being lost in (mis)translation.
The whole post is worth reading. It's especially good on Hezbollah and Hassan Nasrallah.
I listened to Hassan Nasrallah's speech in total. He didn't sound at all the way he is being represented by the false-Zionist war-mongers in Israel and elsewhere. He never does.
Of course, in the long run, he's not showing all his cards.
