James Rosen starts his FOX News article with: "A recent decision by German officials to withhold support for any new sanctions against Iran has pushed a broad spectrum of officials in Washington to develop potential scenarios for a military attack on the Islamic regime, FOX News confirmed Tuesday."
Rosen claims to have obtained some highly sensitive information from a meeting in Berlin of German officials with the Iran desk officers from the five member states of the Security Council:
The Germans voiced concern about the damaging effects any further sanctions on Iran would have on the German economy and also, according to diplomats from other countries, gave the distinct impression that they would privately welcome, while publicly protesting, an American bombing campaign against Iran's nuclear facilities.So... the German economy would suffer from further sanctions against Iran, but not from a war with Iran? That's the logic of Faux News... See the full article at FOX News (via: tapmag).
UPDATE: Perhaps one reason, why Fox News beats the drums of war, can be found in a United Press International article: "Faced with U.S. economic sanctions and a weak dollar, Tehran is demanding foreign energy companies do business in yen and euros, despite increasingly desperate need for investment. In a deal announced last week, Japans Nippon Oil agreed to buy oil from Iran using yen instead of the traditional U.S. dollars." And I thought Japan was such a close US ally.
