John Kerry was meeting with the Prime Minister of Qatar (HBJ) in one of the Wikileaked documents, and he gets a heads up on what Iran is saying about us behind closed doors...
¶25. (C) HBJ said Iran's president views the U.S. as a country
that is overstretched and in difficulty as a result of too
many commitments. Iraq, Afghanistan, and the U.S. economy
are the three main problems President Ahmadinejad sees. HBJ
observed that a Western attack against Iran for Ahmadinejad
would be good politics, because it would allow him to take
out his opposition using the war as a pretext. Senator Kerry
asked clarification of whether Ahmadinejad had said these
things, or if HBJ inferred them from conversation.
¶26. (C) Qatar's PM said Ahmadinejad had told him, "We beat
the Americans in Iraq; the final battle will be in Iran."
Oh yeah, and also Hamas totally wants to recognize Israel's right to exist. Read more here.
