The results suggest Iran's next parliament will be more supportive of President Rohani's drive for economic reforms, but conservatives will remain a powerful force.13:31 30.04.16 | 0 comments
Does anyone really pay any attention to when the US gets 'offended' by Israel? Nothing ever comes of it. I can't think of a single time. Not one. It's almost habitual, like a familiar dance of offense, apology, regret, stern speech, finger-wagging, and no actual action...or at the worst, some non-binding UN 'condemnation', which, let's face it, Israel is stopped by that about as much as by a wet napkin. Israel could care less about world opinion, so long as it doesn't affect the bottom line, facts on the ground. The US often plays lip-service to the notion of 'condemning' an Israeli action, but watch what happens if it goes to the security council...the US will veto it, and Israel knows this. It all feels so phony.
