Earlier this week, the United States uncovered a plot to assassinate the Saudi Arabian ambassador in Washington, D.C. At least one suspect has been taken into custody by the Department of Justice and the department also claims there were plots to blow up the Israeli and Saudi Arabian embassies in Washington. This has thus far been the closest Iran has come to carrying out an attack on the U.S. homeland.
Iran has been left alone for too long. It’s only a matter of time before it actually succeeds and attacks U.S. soil and citizens. This is not only a problem for the U.S., but Europe and Middle Eastern countries as well. These regions of the world cannot allow countries like Russia, China, Venezuela, North Korea and Syria to push them around, and they need to pressure the United Nations to do something about this rouge nation.
The Iranian president has claimed the Holocaust never happened and said he wishes to see our great ally, Israel, wiped off the face of the earth. Iran would also like to see the Saudis removed from power as well. Also take into consideration it’s nuclear aspirations and you have a mess.
It’s time the United States and Europe fix the problem they caused in Iran and for the people of the Middle East find the courage to get rid of these evil dictators who control them. Iran mistreats anyone who does not follow, or deviates away from, its strict Sharia Law. Stoning is still a common punishment in the country, they do not respect the voice of the people (especially women) and they hold unfair elections.
If we allow these so called leaders of Iran to continue to spout lies, threaten the U.S. and its allies and seek nuclear weapons, then we are looking at a major problem. Who knows what ties Iran has to terrorists groups such as al-Qaida, who would like nothing more than to set off a bomb in a major U.S. or European city? The time to act is now, and the U.S. should not be alone this time. If we do go to war with Iran, we better not just end up nation-building after a permanent government is put in place (as history does repeat itself).
