«US allies in the Middle East should strengthen their respective military forces in order to deter Iran from continuing its suspected nuclear weapons program».
This is a statement by US Secretary of Defense Robert Gates recorded in an interview published by Al-Jazeera on Tuesday.
«One of the pathways to get the Iranians to change their approach on the nuclear issue, is to persuade them that moving down that path will actually jeopardize their security, not enhance it», Gates he told the station.
When asked about the perceived «double-standard» regarding US policy towards the suspected Israeli nuclear program, versus the aggressive action currently being employed against Iranian nuclear proliferation, Gates defended the American behavior.
«First of all, it’s the Iranian leadership that has said it wants to wipe Israel off the face of the earth», he said. «Those threats have not been made in the other direction».
«It is the Iranian government that is in violation of multiple UN Security Council resolutions with respect to these programs, so focus needs to be on the country that is feuding the will of the international community and the United Nations», Gates added.

I have earlier said that the United States is the biggest hypocrite in International politics. Because they play on both sides of the table, all the time, with a motive of making money.
The US earned money in giving Iran nuclear technology in the 1970-ties. After the revolution in Iran, the US earned money on building up the military of Saddam Hussein to create a friendly «buffer state» between the Saudi oil fields and Iran.
When the Russians invaded Afghanistan in December 1979, a man called Osama Bin Laden soon became a good friend of Washington. Hundreds of millions of dollar was given to an organization called «Taliban», so they could purchase advance US weaponry and fight the Red Army.
Now the one trillion US dollar arms industry and Pentagon have come up with a new way of making money in the Middle East. Simply by offering both Jews and Muslims better firearms against Iran.
An US strike on Iran, is of course out of the question. Because that will not bring income. Only hardship, military expenses and higher oil prices.
The US Secretary of state Robert Gates treats Iran like just another player, playing a dirty game about money. He has simply not a clue about who he is dealing with. On the other side of the table sits the Devil him self, to destroy Israel at any cost.
France tried to listen to the advice of men like Robert Gates in the 1930-ties. They had the best forts in Europe along the France-German border, and were told that they had purchased firearms enough to «scare» Nazi-Germany from attacking France. The problem was that France came to know to late who they were dealing with.
In a similar way, the present US Government think they can play games with the Ayatollah. They are deadly wrong. Gates in playing a dirty game, and Israel should not put their trust in him.
