Το wikileaks δημοσίευσε διαβαθμισμένο email της Χίλαρυ Κλίντον όταν ήταν ΥΠΕΞ των ΗΠΑ, σχετικώς με τον πόλεμο στην Συρία.
Το υπόμνημα της Χίλαρυ Κλίντον αποδεικνύει τα βαθύτερα αίτια της αμερικανικής εξωτερικής πολιτικής στην συγκεκριμένη χρονική περίοδο. Σε μία παράγραφο αποκαλύπτει πολλά:
"Iran’s nuclear program and Syria’s civil war may seem unconnected, but they are. For Israeli leaders, the real threat from a nuclear-armed Iran is not the prospect of an insane Iranian leader launching an unprovoked Iranian nuclear attack on Israel that would lead to the annihilation of both countries.
What Israeli military leaders really worry about -- but cannot talk about -- is losing their nuclear monopoly.
An Iranian nuclear weapons capability would not only end that nuclear monopoly but could also prompt other adversaries, like Saudi Arabia and Egypt, to go nuclear as well.
The result would be a precarious nuclear balance in which Israel could not respond to provocations with conventional military strikes on Syria and Lebanon, as it can today.
It is the strategic relationship between Iran and the regime of Bashar Assad in Syria that makes it possible for Iran to undermine Israel’s security — not through a direct attack, which in the thirty years of hostility between Iran and Israel has never occurred, but through its proxies in Lebanon, like Hezbollah, that are sustained, armed and trained by Iran via Syria.
The end of the Assad regime would end this dangerous alliance. Israel’s leadership understands well why defeating Assad is now in its interests.”
Το ζήτημα είναι να μην χάσει το Ισραήλ το πυρηνικό του μονοπώλιο.
