The Protocols of the Elders of Persia

Peter Hitchens provides a useful guide to read the next report on alleged chemical weapons atrocities.

Meanwhile, as even the UN insists that there has been no credible evidence of an Iranian nuclear weapons programme since 2009 (and there was little, if any, before that), take a moment to admire Iran's restraint.

Iran is the only non-nuclear state in the world to be subject to an active threat of a nuclear attack. Yet its potential attacker is seeking to present it as the bad guy in order to force an American-led regime change operation, hugely successful as those have been in the past.

Oh, well, at least Hillary Clinton is not in the White House. In 2008, she promised to nuke Iran if instructed to do so by her Saudi, Kuwaiti or Emirati campaign financiers. She has never withdrawn that promise.

If Donald Trump did not succumb to the foreign policy blob after all on Iran, and if he also delivered in Korea, then that Nobel Peace Prize might not be such a bad idea after all. Low though this is setting the bar, he would in that case deserve it far more than Barack Obama ever did.
