"Iran on Thursday began large-scale air defense war games aimed at protecting the country's nuclear facilities against any possible attack, state television reported. It said the five-day drill will cover an area a third of the size of Iran and spread across the central, western and southern parts of the country. Gen. Ahmad Mighani, head of an air force unit that deals with threats to Iran's air space, said Saturday the war games would cover regions where Iran's nuclear facilities are located. The drill involves both Iran's elite Revolutionary Guard, the paramilitary Basij forces affiliated with the Guard as well as army units."
As we negotiate in good faith with Iran on nuclear non proliferation, Iran stalls and drags out the talks.
Meanwhile, Iran continues to develop nuclear weapons, and improves its capacity to protect its nuclear sites.
Muhammad Ali would have called the Iranian strategy "rope-a-dope".
Of course, that means the Obama administration's Iran policy makers are the dopes.
