We all know about Iran’s nuclear desires. To what extent, some may still question–do they want a nuclear weapon or are they simply seeking nuclear power to support their energy complex? GOP candidates have debated the Iranian nuclear topic, yet no GOP candidate has been asked the very real question about Iran’s current proxy war taking place throughout the Middle East—let alone, how they  will deal with the rogue regime.

At a time when Senator Lindsey Graham, Admiral Mike Mullen, and many others see the reality of Pakistan’s involvement in aiding enemies like the Haqqani network, very few accept or comprehend the magnitude which Iran plays into this mix supporting Pakistan’s ISI. Yes, Iran supports Pakistan’s ISI and yes, Iranian agents have been known to operate in the region.

Iran has also been a major contributor to the ongoing violence in Iraq. In fact, a great majority of the weapons used against U.S. forces comes directly out of Iran. The Shiite nation patiently awaits the departure of U.S. forces so it can pursue its goal of taking over.

Not only does Iran support the ISI and patiently await a U.S. withdrawal from Iraq, it has also supported numerous Shiite and non-Shiite terrorist groups like Al Qaeda, Libyan Islamic Fighting Group, Hezbollah, and Hamas. Since the release of the 9-11 Commission Report, U.S. policy makers have understood Iran’s involvement with terrorism yet very few politicians have been willing to deal with the threat they pose.

Today, Iran has been heavily involved in numerous secret activities across the Arabian Peninsula and Africa. And, yet again, Iran’s involvement across such lands is not discussed.  With Yemen facing an austere civil crisis, Dr. Roby Barret, who in May 2011 published a Joint Special Operations University publication titled Yemen: A Different Political Paradigm in Context, exemplified his expertise of the region by specifically mentioning at least one major Iranian supported factor leading Yemen’s insurrection—the Huthi tribe.

Dr. Barret describes the Huthi tribe as “a small ideologically motivated group that is anti-Western and embraces Iran.” What he failed to mention is the fact that the Huthi are 100% aided by Iran with logistics, finances, and intelligence—activities which the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia fears considering a small part of the Huthi tribe rests in south west Saudi Arabia.

Yemen is a haven for terrorists and if a new Iranian-backed regime takes over, the world will witness the birth of a new Shiite dominated terror producing machine in the Arabian Peninsula. Yemen has its issues fueled by Iran but so do other Arab nation states.

    Iran's secret is that they want to be the seat of the caliphate. Well, that is my assessment based on the actions, words, and inactions of Assad, Ahmedinijad, and Obama. http://msmignoresit.blogspot.com/2011/08/is-iran-

    I recently read a heart-pounding novel, The Woolsorter’s Plague, by Chet Nagle, a former CIA agent, about terrorists delivered to our shores by an Iranian sub. They are likely to bring the proxy war here. I will link to this from my Old Jarhead blog.

    Contrary to popular belief, the United States does have strong relations in the Arab world. Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Bahrain, Jordan, UAE, Qatar, etc. have all assisted in the War on Terror. Yes, some terrorists have come out of those nations but the United States too has a history of our own terrorists.

    Lets see, not only is this self-hating loon claiming the USA is a terrorist state, which is absurd, he is also morally equating the USA with Islamic states to justify America being allies with Islamic states that are waging jihad, not terrorism, which are mutually exclusive and two entirely different things altogether, against all unbelievers around the world including the USA. In other words, this writer is a certified moonbat and this article is little more than unnecessary brain damage.

    In any event, the West needs to ban and reverse Muslim immigration ASAP, as Muslims aren't migrating to the West for the purpose of assimilating and integrating but instead for the purpose of eventually making Islam supreme via demographic conquest. Simultaneously and in no particular order, the ruling Mullahs of Iran must be ousted and their nuclear weapons program destroyed, the nuclear weapons arsenal and nuclear weapons program of Pakistan must also be destroyed, and lastly the oilfields and the unearned oil wealth of the Middle East must also be seized, lest they will be used to fund jihad against the West perpetually. Do all of those things in no particular order and we save the world. Continue to be blinded by political correctness and WWIII is inevitable.

    Indeed, I still can't believe that FPM published this moonbat's garbage.

      ObamaYo, What would you call those Americans affiliated with the Symbionese Liberation Army, the FALN, McVeigh, Unibomber, Padilla, etc??? Hippies? No they were terrorists…The author rightly made a valid point. Never did he say we were a Terrorist State. Nor could I see any attempt to justify our relations with other nations…Your reading comprehension is about as good as a 2 year old.

        Dude, the loon who wrote this garbage is an unhinged self-hating moonbat like you, as he conflates what is jihad with terrorism. In addition, he vilifies the USA and then draws a ludicrous moral equivalence between the USA and those Islamic countries to justify allying with our mortal enemies who are waging jihad perpetually not only against us but also all non-Muslim unbelievers around the world. Now, I've heard some absurd off the wall justifications in my time, but his justification for allying with our eternal enemies has to take the cake. Obviously, like you that moonbat couldn't be more mentally incompetent or a bigger useful idiot. Anyway, thanks for weighing in, I appreciate it.

    Iran should have an industrial accident in their gasoline production facilities. Along with some leftover mines Iraq spread during the gulf wars causing problems within Iranian ports.

    These kind of problems would keep them busy at home for quite some time.
