Emirtes, how very unemirati this bombing idea
This is so very un-Emirati, saying something in public like this:
FT.com UAE official backs use of force against Iran
The United Arab Emirates on Wednesday tried to control the diplomatic fallout after the country’s ambassador to Washington urged the US to use force to stop Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons.
Yousef al-Otaiba, an influential figure in the UAE’s government, told an audience at the Aspen Ideas Festival in the US that a nuclear-armed Iran would be a greater disaster than a military strike.
His remarks shed rare light on the hawkish attitude of some Arab states that are desperate to prevent Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons. In public, the UAE and some of its neighbours try to maintain cordial relations with Tehran. Privately, however, they appear terrified of the prospect of a nuclear-armed Iran dominating the region.
They also fear that Barack Obama’s administration is moving towards a policy of containing Iran, rather than stopping its drive towards nuclear capability
Not that an American military strike on Iran makes any sense at all.
