Canada Closes Embassy in Iran, Expels Iranian Diplomats: Why Now?
Is the pre-emptive strike against Iran imminent?
This is the very question that journalists have posed yesterday to Canadian minister of Foreign Affairs, John Baird, after his announcement that the Canadian embassy in Iran was closed and Iranian diplomats have 5 days to leave Canada. The minister did not answer the question sticking to his talking points, but seemed very uneasy and gravely serious.
At the same time Prime Minister Stephen Harper is trying to convince Russia’s president Vladimir Putin to cease supporting Bashar Al-Assad in Syria while Iran’s Mahmud Ahmadinejad held an “Islamic Resistance Festival,” with Hamas and Hezbollah leaders urging them to fight for Assad’s regime and warning them that Israel and the West support Sunnis in order to destroy their growing influence in the region.
And when Iran warns against a military action against itself, it actually means that they themselves are planning one against their enemies. It might seem a bit confusing to some, but as the Iranian saying explains, they are simply “talking to the window, so that the door may hear.”
The door ( Israel) does hear it very well indeed and knows that they are not having that much time left to prevent a disaster of literally biblical proportions, therefore I would not be surprised if Israel would make their move even before the end of October with or without the support of the international community.
There is also a possibility that Iran would move first to prevent the international community from getting involved in Syria and helping the rebels to overthrow the Assad regime. Russia will most likely continue to support Iran and even move against Israel, especially if Israel manages to strike first.
Either way the world will be quite a different place when it all unfolds, perhaps even this very year. It is most certainly a crossroad in history for many nations involved and will affect us all.
