SHORT COMMUNICATION 379
Thanks to several dunderheaded leaders who threw caution to the wind and placed their trust in Iran who received limited relief the many sanctions that were hurting Iran because of their refusal to stop their enrichment of nuclear bomb and weapons’ grade uranium, Iran still remains a very strong threat to American interests in many parts of the world. Thankfully, the limited sanctions relief only a six-month moratorium. Iran is an untrustworthy Islamic Republic, and that means current times are full of hurdles that need to be overcome.
Despite the nuclear accord, Iranian activities continue to threaten the United States and its aliens, especially Israel. The two untrustworthy leaders remain in power; Ali Khamanei and Hassan Rouhandi. That is bad news for the limited sanctions promoters. It is especially bad news for the U. S. and Israel and Saudi Arabia.
The latest reports reveals that Iran has developed the Sejil-2 ballistic missile that can deliver a payload 1,500 miles and drones with a range of 1,250 miles. A recent report estimated that Iranian missiles could reach the U. S. shores by 2015.
Iran is very sneaky also behind the scenes. Iran has supplied weapons that have killed Americans. Iran bought rockets and machine guns and then sold them elsewhere, and those weapons killed American soldiers in 2007. Iran uses its influence to engage terrorist groups to further own terrorist activities and desires. In 2011, the FBI helped to uncover a plot to assassinate the Saudi Arabia ambassador to the U. S. and bomb the Israeli embassy. Espionage in favor of Iran has been uncovered to kill teachers at Jewish school; to kill people at the U. S. and Israeli embassies in Baju: to seize assault rifles, grenades, and explosives. Iran supports conflicts between Muslim groups. Iran backs terrorist groups that threaten Israel’s northern borders. Iran supports the bloody Syrian regime. It is easily understood why Iran cannot ever be trusted.
When ex-leader of Iran said that “Israel and U. S. should be wiped off the face of the earth”, he was not whistling in the wind. If Iran could harm Israel, they would in a heartbeat. In Iran, there is an ingrained hatred towards Israel and U. S. because the U. S. is committed to supporting and helping to defended Israel if they are attacked. The limited sanctions relief given to Iran has had no effect. There has been no lessoning in Iran’s oppositions to the existence of Israel. Another big concern is the fact Iranian missiles could reach U. S. shores by 2015. That threat cannot be allowed to become a reality. In the near future, if Israel concludes that Iran’s missiles are a definitive threat and they need to be taken out, the U. S. must stand behind Israel’s decision and give whatever help that is necessary. Meanwhile, every move Iran makes has to be carefully watched. The Islamic Republic (Iran) is beyond even one minute’s trust.
