The Iran Trap

Scott Ritter warns the Euros (and us) about how the neocons will try to get the US to invade Iran.
What the Europeans - and the member nations of the EU-3 in particular - fail to recognise is that the Bush administration's plan for Iran does not consist of three separate plans, but rather one plan composed of three phases leading to the inevitability of armed conflict with Iran and the termination of the theocratic regime of the mullahs currently residing in Tehran.
This three step plan is:
  1. Making unreasonable demands of Iran, dooming diplomatic negotiations to failure.
  2. Go to the UN Security Council and seek sanctions which are also expected to fail.
  3. Claim that all options have been explored and force is now necessary.

Ritter goes on to give his take on how to aviod this senario.
The only chance the world has of avoiding a second disastrous US military adventure in the Middle East is for the EU-3 to step back from its policy of doing the bidding of the US, and to confront not only Iran on the matter of its nuclear programme, but also the larger issue of American policies of regional transformation that represent the greatest threat to Middle East security and stability today.

Indeed.
