Basically it is a reconnaissance mission..
"The military option would remain on the table, but the fact is, that military option would be enhanced because we'd been spending the intervening number of years gathering significantly more detail about Iran's nuclear program. So when it comes to the targeting decisions that would be made by military officials either in Israel or the United States, those targeting decisions would be significantly informed, and our capabilities improved, based on the knowledge that has been gained in the intervening years through this inspections regime." -- some press secretary dude
I'm just not sure if spelling that out so honestly is such a good idea.
And, in true Corleone fashion, homes says:
"congressional rejection of this deal leaves any U.S. administration only one option: another war in the Middle East. I say this not to be provocative. I'm stating a fact."
By the way my friend mimics his new hero and war mongering press, and already stating his opposition to the deal, I know he prefers war, and of course, will deny that also. That's so weird, to hide ones feelings like that, out of some kind of shame? Who knows? What does one gain from that? Victory? Over what? It's just so much wasted energy propping up so many contradictions, all for an illusion... It's a double-triple life, like an airline pilot with three separate families around the globe. But they live their fantasies, maybe he's frustrated that he can't.
