Iran Remains a Danger to the World

Hassan RouhaniWith the July 20 “deadline” for a nuclear agreement between Iran and the rest of the world, the world must remain strong on the dangers which Iran poses.  Despite the weakness of certain world leaders, Iran remains a vast danger.

Some important statements to remember:

  •  “Today the world has become a much more dangerous place because the most dangerous regime in the world has taken a significant step toward attaining the most dangerous weapon in the world.” Benjamin Netanyahu
  • “Iran continues to aggressively expand its nuclear program, and funnel troops and weapons into Syria.” David Meyers
  • Iran is Russia’s strategic ally, not ours. As a matter of fact, Iran is the exact opposite of a strategic ally to the United States of America. It has pledged itself to our destruction.” Christine O’Donnell
  • “Regime brutality against the majority Sunni population of Syria and intervention by foreign Shia forces (Iranian and Hezbollah) have attracted a far larger and more dangerous group of jihadis than ever existed in Afghanistan, one whose threat to European and American allies and interests keeps growing.” Elliott Abrams
  • “I would not negotiate with Iran, they are not our friends, they’ll try to use this as leverage to have a nuclear weapon.” John Barrasso
  • “The military intelligence sources I know look at the ISIL as a crucial threat to the whole region, including Israel, with its success encouraging jihadist and al-Qaida groups, including those facing us on the Syrian border.” Moshe Maoz
  •  “If there is one message that needs to be put out today, it is not to let Iran, on the sidelines of this conflict in Iraq, have nuclear weapons capability because sooner or later – and it’s sooner rather than later – they’ll have atomic bombs.” Binyamin Netanyahu
  • “Make no mistake, a nuclear Iran will make the world a more dangerous place.” Ted Poe
  • “We’re another step closer to a nuclear-1914 scenario in the Middle East or elsewhere. If we cannot say ‘no’ to Iran — a country, by the way, that’s repeatedly violated the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty, international nuclear inspections and U.N. Security Council resolutions — then good luck getting countries who haven’t broken any rules, including some of America’s allies and partners, to refrain from getting enrichment and reprocessing or, perhaps eventually, nuclear weapons.” Robert Zarate
  • “If Iran acquires a nuclear weapon, the risk is unacceptable that that weapon will be detonated over the skies of Tel Aviv or New York or Los Angeles. And the result could be hundreds of thousands of lives lost.” Ted Cruz
  • “I see ISIS as a direct threat to the United States, they have the capacity, and I believe they have the intent. They have stated in, in terms of their opposition and the whole Western world.” John Barrasso
  • “Given the unfortunate results of these most recent negotiations, it is difficult to place much faith in such rosy scenarios — especially as the existential threat represented by a nuclear-armed Iran makes North Korea pale by comparison.” Ted Cruz
  • “It is the mission of the Islamic Republic of Iran to erase Israel from the map of the region.” Ayatollah Ali Khamenei
  • “I have thought many times that Iran isn’t merely the most dangerous terrorist nation on earth — it is the most dangerous nation on earth, period.” John G. Weldon
  • “The president’s view of the Iranians, I’m completely off-script with him there. That was so disappointing. The world is literally about to blow up and our president did not really paint a fair picture of the threats.” Sen. Lindsey Graham
  • “The United States must stand up and protect itself and its allies. Iran is already a threat to global world order and peace. It antagonizes Israel, trains terrorists, and wreaks havoc throughout the Middle East.” Ted Poe
  • “The theocracy that runs Iran is the equivalent of having al-Qaeda in charge of a country.” Rick Santorum
  • “Iran has a number of demands — reducing sanctions, getting the U.N. to back off nuclear inspections, ending democracy promotion efforts, minimizing Israel’s efforts to contain Iran-funded Hezbollah, and so forth.” Christine O’Donnell
  • “The prospect of Iran acquiring nuclear weapon capacity is the gravest national security threat we face, yet it appears that this ‘deal’ does not require Iran to dismantle even a single centrifuge or turn over even a single pound of enriched uranium.” Daniel Halper
  • “[If Iran acquires] nuclear weapons, I think we could have Armageddon.” Senator John McCain
  •  “If President Obama continues his failed policy, Iran will build a nuclear weapon, expand its support for international terror and continue to support the murder of innocent people in Syria, Israel, Europe and the United States.” David Meyers
  • “We’re now allowing Iran to keep all of its building blocks for a nuclear weapon because it promised to suspend its nuclear program for 6 months. Why are we trusting the word of a country with a history of terrorist-financing and an agenda to destroy Israel?” Ted Poe
  • “Unfortunately, even after a devastating conventional attack by Israel, Iran, potentially, could continue to remain the most dangerous nation on the planet — but not because of its copious history of murderous terrorist activities and trouble-making around the world ever since the Islamic revolution of 1979. It is because of what its leaders believe — in an ultimate sense — and what they expect to finally accomplish.” John G. Weldon

A nuclear Iran must be stopped.

    If the ISIS Jihadists ever would attack Iran, then the whole world can get ready
    for WW 3. Only this time it will be a total Armageddon! John McCain is right.
    Not so long ago, there was much International investigation on the Nuclear administration in Iran, led by M. El Baradai. But the Obama administration
    has never shown much interest to keep this investigation proceedure going.
    Even though Europe does hope to renew contact with the fanatic Ayatollahs,
    who are the real dictators of Iran. When and if the Ayatollahs decide to produce
    Nukes, and USE them against “The Infidels” in their neighbouring countries, and then in Europe,
    North and South America, they wil do so! Keep in mind that the Koran calls
    for World Domination for the Islam, to be achieved through” fire and the sword.”
    The sword was used during the last terrible war with Iraq during the 1980′s,
    whereby thousands of very young teeners lost their lives after they were sent
    out to fight against the jihad from Iraq, with only a plastic “key to the Paradise”
    to boost their enthusiasm and dedication to the Ayatollahs.
    The Fire, is yet to come, I fear within the next few months.
    May God help us and protect us!

      Islam knows that the best time to strike will be during an Obama Regime, in large part because of his cowardice, fecklessness and indecisiveness, but mostly because he has sent clear messages to his childhood religion, since being in the office of the President of the United States, that he pretty much agrees with their overall aims and goals.
      He will continue to backdoor support Iran in their quest for the real “nuclear option”! Once Iran develops a workable atomic weapon, they will likely ensure that it is distributed, at least initially, to the most hair-trigger and aggressive Islamic entity they can find because time will be running out on them before the US gets a real American Patriot in charge again. They know that if they strike soon, the most they have to fear from Obama is endless dithering and stalling because he simply cannot make a decision!
      My personal belief is that he is, or will be, arranging to be the first American “Ayatollah” after the dust all settles.

        Several years ago, Netanyahu visited, and when he left
        Obama gave him a copy of the Book of Ruth. The symbolic and
        literal abandonment of Israel to do its own Defense is not
        the worst idea.

    Sorry, can’t read it all. Don’t you know anything about how politics works? Yesterday’s enemy becomes today’s ally. I do wish you’d keep up.

    No-one is listening to you.

    Iran hasn’t troubled anyone for a very long time and has now elected a very moderate spokesman.

    Argentina is fitting nukes to its fleet. Shouldn’t Britain be more worried about the Falklands than some perceived Iranian threat?

    As we speak, the US has realised the importance of befriending Iran, albeit temporarily, and joined them in a united front against ISIL. You should be pleased about this but clearly you’re not.

    Must you always have this enemy ready to drive you into the sea and destroy Israel? It does get to be a bit tiresome after decades, this tale of a friendless nation always going it alone against all odds.

    to use this as leverage to have a nuclear weapon.” John Barrasso”

    Very very tired of this old coconut. It insults my intelligence to listen to the same old garbage spewed by politicians. Iran has always been all mouth and trousers, railing against the west’s unfair treatment of them and the west knows that. They have never been a threat but this constant verbal and financial assault against a very advanced nation must surely rankle and create ill feelings amongst its citizens who, I assure you, want nothing less than you enjoy.

      a lot of very good men died so you could live in freedom. in your case their sacrifice was pointless.

      • BagLady

        Men (and I stress the word) have been killing each other over territory since time began and if they were doing it so that I may live in freedom they have failed and are failing more and more with each negative decision taken by our great leaders. The world is a far more dangerous place since the turn of the century as the menfolk become more and more aggressive.

        I am taking off next week and am dreading the journey. There have been bomb scares all over the place and the ridiculous numbskulls who man security at airports have become even more vigilant. Will I get through the scanner without having to go butt naked? Will they confiscate everything I have as a possible weapon? Will the PC rule passed down from The Ministry mean I am taken to a room for a body search as Mohammed walks through unquestioned? Can’t have them being accused of racism.

        These are the kind of freedoms I have lost. I used to be totally free but definitely not any longer.

        During my lifetime I can find only 2 days that were war free around the world. How sad is that?

        Oh yes, and I lost my only 2 uncles and one grandfather through war and no, their sacrifices did not go unnoticed and probably accounts for me calling for the pen rather than the sword.

        • SCREW SOCIALISM

          If your 2 uncles and grandfather knew what a boob you’d turn into, they would have throttled you.

          • BagLady

            My family has never gone in for violence.

            “Today the world has become a much more dangerous place because the most dangerous regime in the world has taken a significant step toward attaining the most dangerous weapon in the world.” Benjamin Netanyahu”

            Now there’s a boob and a very dangerous one to boot. AND he has more nukes than any other country on the planet. I shake in my shoes when I think what this idiot is likely to do next.

    Looks like a poster here has some of the Ron Paul talking points with among his propaganda, he states Iran is not a threat and has a right to have nuclear weapons. You believe this, you live on the Rainbow Unicorn Ranch.

    Iran-North Korea Missile Cooperation Undermines Recent Geneva Nuclear Deal

    November 27, 2013

    Iranian collaboration with North Korea on a new rocket booster for long-range missiles undermines the deal with Tehran on its nuclear program, key Senate and House Republicans said on Tuesday.

    “While the president was undertaking his secret negotiations—which Congress wasn’t informed of—he had to know Iran and North Korea were testing new engines for ballistic missiles to target the United States,” said Rep. Mike Rogers (R., Ala.) chairman of the House Armed Services subcommittee on strategic forces.

    Rogers said in a statement that despite sharp budget cuts, U.S. space monitoring systems would not miss the development of the new booster engine.

    “Every day the president’s deal looks worse and worse,” Rogers said when asked about the Tehran-Pyongyang missile collaboration.

    The chairman, whose subcommittee is in charge of overseeing U.S. strategic weapons, ballistic missile defenses, and space programs, made the comments in response to a report Tuesday revealing that Iran is covertly working with North Korea on a new 80-ton rocket booster that can be used in both nations’ long-range missile programs.

    In the Senate, Sen. Ted Cruz (R., Texas) also criticized the Iran nuclear deal for not addressing the threat of Iran’s ICBM program.

    Reports of Iran-North Korea ICBM collaboration follow new anti-America and anti-Israel outbursts from the Islamist regime in Tehran, Cruz said.

    “The Iranian regime is clearly demonstrating through word and deed that they have no intention of moderating the behavior that earned them one of the harshest international programs of economic sanctions on record,” Cruz told the Washington Free Beacon. “Relaxing the sanctions now only encourages them to continue their pursuit of nuclear weapons–and the means to deliver them to Israel, Europe and even the United States. I hope President Obama and Secretary [of State John] Kerry will reconsider this dangerous policy and add the immediate cessation of their ICBM program to the list of prerequisites placed on Iran before any additional negotiations take place.”

    Claude Chafin, a spokesman for House Armed Services Committee Chairman Howard P. “Buck” McKeon, also voiced concern over reports of Iran-North Korea missile cooperation.

    “Without a comprehensive deal to limit the Iranian ballistic missile program, and eliminate their ability to enrich uranium, the pieces are falling into place for both the Iranians and the North Koreans to threaten the United States with nuclear-tipped ICBMs,” Chafin said in an email.

    Chafin said the cooperation increases the threat to the United States because both Pyongyang and Tehran share missile technology. “It is reasonable to assume that North Korean missile capabilities are peer to Iranian missile capabilities,” he said.

    Intelligence reports indicated that as recently as late October Iranian technicians from the Shahid Hemmat Industrial Group (SHIG), a defense organization that builds liquid-fueled missiles, were in Pyongyang collaborating on the booster development.

    SHIG has been sanctioned in the past by both the U.S. government and the United Nations for illicit missile transfers.

    U.S. officials said the new booster could be used on both a space launcher and a long-range missile. Iran and North Korea are believed by U.S. intelligence agencies to be using their space programs to mask long-range missile development.

    Officials said the covert missile cooperation indicates the Iranians are continuing to build long-range strategic missiles that can be used to deliver nuclear warheads at the same time they are negotiating limits on illicit uranium enrichment.

    Intelligence assessments have said that both countries could test a missile capable of reaching the United States with a nuclear warhead within the next two years.

    Henry Sokolski, head of the private Nonproliferation Policy Education Center, said he agrees with U.S. special envoy on North Korea Glyn Davies that more pressure should be applied on North Korea to give up its nuclear arms.

    “As Glyn Davies put it, if the North Koreans don’t demonstrate that they understand they must fulfill their obligations, then more sanctions pressure will be brought to bear on them,” he said.

    “He was speaking of the North Koreans but what’s good for the goose should also be good for the gander—in this case, Iran,” Sokolski said.

    John Bolton, undersecretary of state for international security during the George W. Bush administration, said the main purpose of Iranian and North Korean ballistic missile program and their longstanding cooperation “has always been to serve as the delivery vehicle for nuclear weapons.”

    “By ignoring the facts about this cooperation and its objective, the Obama Administration has again demonstrated that it is content to live with an Iranian nuclear weapons capability,” Bolton said in an email.

    “There is simply no other explanation for the administration’s inept, offhand [reaction] to the manifest threat Tehran poses. The signal to other would-be proliferators is truly ominous.”

    Frank Gaffney, a former assistant defense secretary during the Reagan administration, said he is concerned that the Obama administration may have suppressed intelligence about the Tehran-North Korean missile collaboration.

    “The reported suppression of information contradicting the administration’s contention that Iran is meaningfully abandoning its nuclear weapons program fits a pattern of misinformation, or lying to the American people, that constitutes national security fraud,” Gaffney said, noting similarities to misinformation put out by the administration on health care reform.

    Iranian-backed fighters and terrorist proxies have killed many, including Americans. The evidence is clear: Iran continues its role as regional provocateur, despite pledges to the contrary that it would support Iraq’s stabilization. The regime’s actions contradict Rouhani’s rhetoric, including during his recent visit to Turkeywhere he said Iran would make fighting violence, extremism and terrorism a primary objective. Those who have been victimized and continue to be threatened by Iran and its terrorist proxies have said it many times but it merits repeating: Iran has no interest in peace. It wants to be the hegemony and with a nuclear weapon, a renewed Persian superpower with global influence.

  • kikorikid

    “A renewed Persian Superpower”?
    At a minimum, “Clinical Delusion”.
    I don’t think Iran’s theologist/leaders will hold onto
    a nuclear device any longer than it takes to use it.
    “Destruction of Isreal” being one of their Prime Directives.
    Let’s say a nuclear device goes off in Haifa Harbor.
    At 7 AM.
    When the Sun sets on this day, from Space, you will very likely
    see the glow of embers and molten earth at all Sharia Ruled
    Capitals in the Middle East.

    Yes, the above title of the above article has much truth in it. Furthermore, it should be restated that in the many ways that Islam may be defined, one of them is that Islamic may be described as a religious/ political system of tyrannical mind control that have much power over the lives of millions of people around the world. Thus it’s fitting to site the wisdom of Thomas Jefferson. For he stated “I have sworn upon the alter of God eternal hostility against every form of tyranny over the mind of man.”
