It seems that each day the news brings us fresh reports of the progress of Iran’s weapons programs. The latest reports indicate Iranian advancements in medium range ballistic missiles (MRBMs), including the employment of underground silos and nuclear-capable missile warheads.
This is ominous because if there is one nation on earth that we do not want to acquire nuclear weapons or the ability to deliver them, that nation is Iran.
Nevertheless, for the better part of 20 years, the West, especially the U.S., has sat by and merely watched as Iran has moved forward with advancements in weaponry, all the while waging a clandestine war against us.
Iran is the world’s foremost state sponsor of terrorism, having been caught red-handed shipping arms to terrorists in Israel, insurgents in Iraq and the Taliban in Afghanistan. Iran is the one nation on earth that has provided aid to all of these major terrorist organizations: Hamas, Hezbollah, Islamic Jihad, Al Qaeda and the Taliban.
In short, Iran is at war with the West, a war that they are currently waging by proxy. It makes no sense to allow such an enemy state to acquire the world’s most dangerous and lethal weaponry. Unfortunately, that is just where we appear to be headed.
Future generations will pay a terrible price for our intransigence and failure to effectively contain this menace.
At the very least, an Iran armed with nuclear weapons will have a freer hand with which to promote and sponsor terror around the globe. At worst, Iran could become the ultimate Jihadist warrior state, unbowed by mutually assured destruction and deterrence.
Of course, some in the West are still in denial that Iran is building nuclear weapons. The Washington Post, for instance, still insists on pointing out that Iran denies that its nuclear program is a weapons program, each and every time it publishes an article on the subject. Many Americans are all-too willing to give the Ayatollahs in Tehran the benefit of the doubt that their nuclear program is for peaceful energy purposes. Assuming the best of intentions from a belligerent power could one day prove fatal to many Americans…
