Iran-American Rapprochement: Scheherazade! A Tale of One Thousand and One Nights!!
On Tuesday, September 24, 2013, President Obama addressed the UN General Assembly and made a constructive overture to Iranian President Hassan Rouhani for a peaceful rapprochement between the two countries.
From a musical perspective, one could say that this might be the overture to Rimsky-Korsakov’s musical masterpiece entitled ‘Sheherazade’.
As most of you know, I have not been a fan of this administration’s domestic or foreign policy.
But this olive branch speech by Obama to the Iranians has been long overdue. If he is successful in orchestrating a rapprochement with Iran, long abandoned to the repository of American hatred resulting in a successful embargo, it may be the most important accomplishment of his two term administration.
As many of you know by now, I have long promoted re-establishing a détente with Iran despite the hoary rhetoric concerning a fictitious Iranian nuclear enrichment conundrum. In fact whatever Iran, may or may not be doing with it’s nuclear problem, it pales in comparison to the unregulated, chaotic Pakistani Islamic Nuclear Bombs. Funny how the Pak Nukes are never discussed or even mentioned for fear that the atomic genie may really escape from the IAEA bottle of nuclear inspection.
