    George Friedman is the president of Strafor. They write some good stuff on foreign policy and national security issues. If you want to read unbiased opinion, subscribe to Stratfor. Most of their staff is made up of former DoD, State Dept, and CIA analysts.

    The article, while interesting reading, failed to explain how the peanut farmer from Georgia changed the internal balance of power in Iran.

    I can recall an article written around the time of the Shaw's exit, it said the biggest effect, that would have on the USA was the price of cashews. That they would never be a threat to anybody as the Ayatollah Khomeini would have them all riding donkeys.

    They were partially right as cashews went from 1.00 a can to over 7.00 overnight.

    What seems to have been carefully avoided is the role our "seemingly" impotent President has played in middle east geopolitics. Could it be that he is the perfect stooge to further Irans interests??

    Or perhaps the preordained perfect stooge to fill that role.
