"It is delusional to think that any contacts with America will reduce threats because America itself is the threat."

According to the Revolutionary Guards' Javan Online publication, Naghdi added:

"America must close all its military bases in fifty countries of the world and remove all its naval assets from the Persian Gulf and the Mediterranean Sea, taking them to its own shores." 

"America must also dismantle the CIA"and must officially announce that it will not support the (Israeli) Zionist regime." 

"America must also close down its prisons at Guantanamo and across the world and only then will it be worthy of talks with Iran."

Expect US/Iranian relations to be no different now than pre-election. Tehran's nuclear program is red herring cover for regime change. 

Iran knows it and will do whatever it takes to defend its national security and right to produce peaceful nuclear energy. It should do no less and won't. 

Washington has no right to dictate Iranian policy. It does it all the time, of course, globally. Growing numbers of nations aren't pleased. Expect more ahead to express displeasure. Obama hasn't learned that lesson so far. He's unlikely to change.

Haaretz contributor Carlo Stenger knows less about America than he thinks. He headlined "Obama's victory and the American social contract: Lessons for Israel," saying:

Obama's victory suggests the "resilience of the US social contract, which commits all citizens to respect differences and to create a culture of tolerance."

Perhaps he meant Venezuela and said America by mistake. Obama's committed to destroying social America. He's been doing it for four years. He plans much more ahead. 

Perhaps he'll end it entirely on his watch. Both parties are in lockstep on prioritizing militarism, corporate favoritism, and neoliberal harshness.

"What can Israel learn from the success of the American social contract," asked Stenger?

It learned plenty already. It replicated it since the 1980s. Israelis are plagued by the same dynamic harming America. 

Their political leaders don't give a damn about ordinary people. They target, abuse and neglect those most vulnerable.
