: The Guardian says the U.S. is softening on Iran.
: But at the same time, the Telegraph says:
President George W Bush was sent a public manifesto yesterday by Washington’s hawks, demanding regime change in Syria and Iran and a Cuba-style military blockade of North Korea backed by planning for a pre-emptive strike on its nuclear sites.
The manifesto, presented as a “manual for victory” in the war on terror, also calls for Saudi Arabia and France to be treated not as allies but as rivals and possibly enemies.
Good cop of the world, bad cop of the world.
