Ok, we just willy-nilly and super stoopidly and fully aggro killed your super soldier (who was on a peace mission) and you lot be quiet now. And don’t ya do nothing … or else.

The Wall Street Journal knows more:

Swiss Back Channel Helped Defuse U.S.-Iran Crisis

The U.S. sent an encrypted fax via the Swiss Embassy in Tehran urging Iran not to escalate, followed by a flurry of back and forth messages

BERN, Switzerland—Hours after a U.S. strike killed Iranian Maj. Gen. Qassem Soleimani, the Trump administration sent an urgent back channel message to Tehran: Don’t escalate.

The encrypted fax was sent via the Swiss Embassy in Iran, one of the few means of direct, confidential communication between the two sides, U.S. officials said.

In the days that followed, the White House and Iranian leaders exchanged further messages, which officials in both countries described as far more measured than the fiery rhetoric traded publicly by politicians.

A week later, and after a retaliatory Iranian missile attack on two military bases hosting American troops that inflicted no casualties, Washington and Tehran seemed to be stepping back from the brink of open hostilities—for now.

“We don’t communicate with the Iranians that much, but when we do the Swiss have played a critical role to convey messages and avoid miscalculation,” a senior U.S. official said.

A spokesman at Iran’s mission to the United Nations declined to comment on the exchanges but said “we appreciate [the Swiss] for any efforts they make to provide an efficient channel to exchange letters when and if necessary.”

One Iranian official said the back channel provided a welcome bridge, when all others had been burned: “In the desert, even a drop of water matters.”

May I offer my purely amateurish opinion on that matter, please? I guess I can be as amateurish as I want, can’t ever sink down to so low a level as the Americans just did. Fortunately the Iranians have learned from the Russians and are more relaxed and clearly the adults in the room.

Also I don’t understand the Wall Street Journal’s diction: What US – Iran crisis are you talking about ffs? A one sided aggression by the American bullydom is also a one-sided crisis. America’s job is now to get out of that purely internal crisis.

The only interesting question for Iran and the rest of the world is now how to impose sanctions on the Rogue Nation USA, and to what extent.

  1. I haaaaaate that the massive lunatic warmonger with power has, so far, faced no repercussions for any of his actions. I have a brilliant idea on how to give him some perspective, something far outside my abilities, but won’t share as I don’t need to be “interviewed” by the FBI.

    • For sure an interview nobody would like to grant them aholes. It’s weird, somehow in our collective western mindset we still carry that believe of the USA being the leaders of good side and protects us all from the lesser, the brutal, the barbaric side. The biggest trick any one country has ever played on the world.
