Iran Clenches Its Fist

The West’s collective failure to stop Iran’s nuclear ambitions has persuaded Iran that it faces minimal risks in greater adventurism on other fronts as well. Mr. Obama’s discovery of “carrots and sticks,” after a half decade of European failure to make that mantra a successful policy, will lead Tehran’s mullahs to one inescapable conclusion: They have won the nuclear race, absent imminent regime change or military action.

Second, dealing with Hamas, Hezbollah and Syria as though they are unrelated to Iran’s broader threat is exactly backwards. Mr. Obama is again following Europe’s mistaken view that ending the Arab-Israeli conflict will help to resolve other regional problems. But concentrating on Gaza only increases Hamas’s leverage, just as negotiating with Syria only enhances its (and thereby Iran’s) bargaining power.

We should deal instead with diseases, not symptoms. Changing Tehran’s Holocaust-denying regime could end its nuclear program, as well as eliminate its continuing financing of and weapons supplies for Hamas and Hezbollah, reduce its malign hold over Syria, and strengthen Lebanon’s fragile democracy. Taming Iran is not a magical cure-all, but surely addressing the central threat is more sensible than haphazardly dealing with the symptoms separately.

  1. This is clearly a hate site. The police are working on it.

    BTW, why is “activist” bad?

    I think you are very much an activist, actively supporting fascism as long as it’s pro-Zionist.

  2. Why can’t we get people like John Bolton into positions where they can do us some good?

    The posturing jackanapes*, product of ill-advised affirmative action, will get us into a heap of trouble.

  3. Thanks Urbanadder, I agree, JB would do well as a politician, intellingence backed by integrity and a willingness to speak openly and honestly. How refreshing that would be if he were to run for office.

    Anonymous, you’re a loon, fess up.
