Iranian Troops in Eritrea


It’s probably nothing to worry about since smart folks like Trita Parsi assure us all the time that Iran never operates outside its holy borders. So I suppose the Iranians have found a fine vacation spot for their soldiers, just in time for the holidays.

Speaking of which, a pal of mine who is often right about such things says the Egyptians should be on the alert for a Mumbai-style attack in the near future.

My own theory is that the mullahs are simply loading the negotiating table with nice hot items. After all, if you want to negotiate, it’s best to have a rich agenda, n’est-ce pas?

I MUST learn how to say “n’est-ce pas” in Farsi . . . and so must Hillary.
