Nowruz No Comment

The Supreme Leadership of the Islamic Republic of Iran has issued their various messages for the Nowruz ("Persian New Year" on the traditional calendar) and seem to have overlooked what Reuters and other news wires have tried to make sound important.

Yes, what's-his-name, the new guy running the Great Satan government, did issue some sort of message. Big deal. They do that every year.

It was worthy of no comment by any of the leadership.

...and in a perhaps once-in-forever occurance, this author agrees with them:

It was utterly meaningless noise.


Anyone cares to challenge me on that, I'll happily bury you under (open) sources and analysis articles on just *why* it was meaningless.

The message finally drew a response from Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei...

...and he had a pretty good list of why what the Obama administration said was a lot of nothing.

...even though there is now clearly a wedge between the American and Israeli positions on what to do about Iran.

The Obama foreign policy is begining to gel, it seems. Undermine your friends; speak nicely to your foes.
