Ritter: It's the oil economy, stupid

Scott Ritter read Iraq right when everyone else, left right and center, was reading it wrong. Now he's given a long interview to San Diego city beat. He explains how we can tell that "diplomacy" over Iran (and omigorsh, they've pressed none other than Ghorbanifar, the emperor of arms deal sleaze, into service to watch over the negotiations) is going to fail, and is designed to fail.

The flaming Barad-Durian eye of the administration has not turned toward Iran because of its nuclear program. If they'd been serious about weaning Teheran off nukes, they could have responded to any of several overtures in the last several years. No, the neocons want Iran to have a nuclear program, because it gives them the excuse to pursue their real goal: regime change.
