Tariq Ali thinks that Iran is in cahoots with the US because he claims that if the US had let Israel bomb Iran that the US would lose control of Afghan and Iraq? talk about drawing desperately for straws. Afghanistan is worthless compared to the assets of Iran. his claims of occupation on Judea and Samaria are common rhetoric... and so is his belief that the radical left will come to power, but his arguments obscenely defy logic in the details. he says that he knew before that Obama was not going to withdraw from Iraq in Afghan. he claims that the withdraw from Iraq is a facade and that the Americans are still controlling things. this is the radicalization of the left. he is not happy with Obama and he wants more.
