Why is Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu and the U.S. Congress so worried that Iran can develop a nuclear bomb?
I can’t see what Iran’s supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei or Prime Minister Mohammed Javad Zarif stand to gain or be so stupid to order a nuclear attack on Israel or any other country considering the consequences that it would trigger a nuclear war with Israel and the United States unless they are crazy.
A nuclear war can wipe out a whole nation, and the fallout can contaminate fresh-water lakes and rivers and render the ground useless to plant food. Even though Iran is not a member of the U.S. coalition, it is using ground troops to help the Kurdish militiamen fight the Islamic state, that keeps President Obama from having to deploy U.S. ground troops.
The Republicans should back off, and let Obama handle his foreign policy the way he thinks is in the best interest to the United States. We should be more worried and hope that a suicidal terrorist doesn’t gain control of a weapon of mass destruction. God forbid.
Never miss a local story.
