Ahmadinejad: Iran is Obama's way to stay in power
With typical provocative arrogance, Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has said in a letter addressed to the US president that Barack Obama's power and success depends on Iran. Disclosing this Friday, April 16, the Iranian leader promised to publish the letter soon. "Obama should start cooperating with us in practice," he said. "We don't need you to do anything for us to come out of isolation, rather we want to help you come out of isolation."
On the US push for sanctions against Iran's nuclear program, he wrote: "The time when they can imagine they can do Iran any harm is over." The US cannot dominate the Middle East without Iran, he added. "The nuclear issue veils America's real intentions."
debkafile's Iranian sources reveal that the Iranian president's comment on the veil over America's real intentions refers to the Obama administration's behind-the-scenes contacts with Iran in which they are engaged in drawing the dividing lines of influence between the US and Iran in the Middle East and Persian Gulf. This is going on behind Obama's strong public condemnations of Tehran.
The discreet dialogue surfaced in the Iranian leader's avowed willingness to cooperate with Obama, hinting at an arrangement acknowledging Iran's supremacy as the regional power at Israel's expense.
