Iran:Neo-Cons To Plot Iran Strategy Amid Caribbean Luxury

Thanks to Sibil Tala we get information about a “Neo-Con” led conference about Iran.According this information the workshop, entitled “Confronting The Iranian Threat: The Way Forward,” is to include “30 or so leading experts who will analyze the implications of Iran’s activities, the diplomatic challenges, military and intelligence capabilities, the spread of its ideology within and beyond its borders, and other issues, including the prospects for democratization in the Islamic world, energy security and other related issues that face policymakers in the United States, Europe and the Middle East,” according to the invitation letter from FDD’s [Foundation for Defense of Democracies]president, Clifford May. The purpose will be “exploring policy options …and consider solutions to one of the most significant policy issues of our day.”The blogger says[Fa] this conference reminds us 19 century where colonial powers came together to take a decision about Iran. The meeting takes place May 30 to June 1.
