Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Hmmm. I wonder if maybe the Iranians know this and are playing a longer game.

From their point of view, a delay of a few months would be a small price to pay for a big win for the Dems in November.

If Iran is officially off the map as a target, it becomes that much harder for the NeoLoons to stage a convincing October surprise.

I would agree with this view. I think the Iranians are very clear about the knee-jerk responses from the US that they can subtly toy with.

It is classic 'Art of War' stuff.
