Smart power? Obama's team thought US might win Iran's support against Syria

Why, you might ask, would Iran abandon its ally Syria and side with the United States against Bashar al-Assad? As U.N. Ambassador Samantha Power told the liberal Center for American Progress, “we thought perhaps a shared evidentiary base could convince Russia or Iran — itself a victim of Saddam Hussein’s monstrous chemical weapons attacks in 1987-1988 — to cast loose a regime that was gassing its people.”


In other words, Iran didn’t like it when they were being gassed, so of course they wouldn’t want Syrians being gassed either.




Surprising absolutely no one except Power and her U.N. team, Iran’s supreme leader Ayatollah Khamenei sternly warned the U.S. against launching an attack. “The Americans try to play with words and pretend that they’ve become involved in this case for humanitarian aims,” he said. “The Americans are making mistakes in Syria and they have felt the impact and will certainly suffer loss.”


Maybe Power’s speech was some sort of attempt at reverse psychology.
