Saudi Prince Slams Peace Talks, Pushes for 'Commitment' to Move Against Iran
Visiting Saudi Arabia today, Secretary of State John Kerry sought to downplay reports of progress on P5+1 talks with Iran, saying that Iran was “running out of time” after the P5+1 agreed to meet again next month on the matter.
Kerry’s comments reflected those of other US officials, who sought to downplay the chance of a negotiated settlement while emphasizing their own preparations to unilaterally attack Iran over their civilian nuclear program.
That tack seemed to suit Prince Saud just fine, and the Saudi FM slammed the continuation of peace talks to another round of meetings, saying “we can’t be like philosophers who keep talking,” while demanding a commitment from the US to move against Iran militarily.
The seemingly unending talks reflect the reality that the US and Israel have been threatening to attack Iran for over 30 years now, coupled with the “threat” of Iran’s nuclear program being entirely illusory, according to America’s own intelligence community.
