Subject: Best Strategy
Roman    8/30/2006 5:39:32 AM
The best strategy to gain freedom of action against Iran, would be for the U.S. and Europe to engage in a crack programme to reduce oil dependence. This would also have numerous other benefits, including the improvement of strategic position vis a vis the Middle East, environmental benefits and so on. I think such a programme could yield first results after about 2 years and would substantially improve our ability to withstand Iranian retaliation through oil which would greatly improve our freedom of action (among other things).

Natural gas, not oil is the energy of the future, nothing is cheaper. There is no point in debating this---Iran is a self contained power. Nobody can touch them, just forget it. Sanctions won't work, military options are limited within scope of situation. Anyway the media world is overblowing the Iranian threat, by and large they are not too dangerous beyond the usual trouble spots. Sleep well.
