What if Iran is telling the truth? Their leader in a prepared statement said that Iran was prepared to eliminate Israel (none of that was in quotes because I don’t know the exact wording, google it and you can know what he said). Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad literally said he wanted to destroy/eliminate another country!
Imagine if you wake up and the morning news is showing footage of President George Bush saying something like, “We will destroy Syria.” First, the Syrian government would be pissed. They would be trying to get the rest of the world up in arms (hopefully, not literally) taking their side. Second, people here in the US would be split. Some would be saying that we (the US) have to now destroy Syria, or we will look weak. They’ll argue we have to do what we say we are gonna do or we won’t be taken seriously.
Even more alarming then what Iran’s president is saying, his actions are flat-out frightening. Iran is frantically working to build nuclear weapons. Couple that with Iran’s goal of destroying Israel and we (the world) have an ugly situation. Iran’s has also stated that they will share their nuclear weapons with the rest of the Middle East.
What happens if Iran creates a nuclear weapon? Should they be stopped now? What happens if Iran nukes Israel?
Yes, I have started listening to politically-charged talk radio again.
