Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
At this point I doubt any kind of humiliation can kill off NATO. Unless they literally nuke Tehran at least.

Your request, we'll deliver ... bombing Iran's oil facilities in the offing. UK, Israel, Abu Dhabi and Saudi Arabia are gung ho for a "retaliatory" attack for the threats coming out of Teheran. Whose threats? What sources? British MI6 once more? Perhaps deep penetration from Mossad's spymasters?

But in US foreign policy, "democracy" has had a special glossing for well over a century now, namely, "A country is a democracy if and only if it complies with US corporatist demands."  If you refuse to be a "democracy," we will turn you into one by any means available.
