Military Option May Be the Only Answer to Iran's Nuclear Weapons Program, Unfortunately

February 23, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 173

Well, it appears it is now time to make a decision on Iran. The United States obviously must take a leading role in preventing the proliferation of nuclear weapons on this planet. The United Nations has failed, the IAEA has failed, NATO has failed, and our alliances and international sanctions are not working. The Iranian regime will not stop their nuclear weapons program. In fact, they are advancing and accelerating the pace. Okay so, let's talk about this for second shall we.

It is time to decide whether we allow Iran to have a nuclear weapon which they will give to terrorist organizations to serve their political will in the region, and perhaps on faraway shores - or, we do something about it, and we do something serious very quickly. The Iranians must believe that our will or strength of resolve to do something about this issue is there. I believe it is, and because we've been pussyfooting around, now we are left with no choice, it's time to make a choice, and that decision must be made. We cannot vote present any longer.

Recently, the Iranian leader kicked the IAEA inspectors out of the country and then stated; "Iran's nuclear path must continue firmly and seriously, with the help of God and by ignoring propaganda," according to the Wall Street Journal article "Iranian Leader Promotes Nuclear Plans - US and Europe Chastise Tehran for Blocking UN Inspections, as Khamenei Says 'No Obstacles' Can stop Program" by Farnaz Fassihi, published on February 23, 2012.

Basically, they are calling our bluff, and perhaps rightfully so from their point of view. Indeed, I would submit to you that the Obama Administration has played their cards entirely incorrect, and has now pushed us into a corner where we have to make this decision and cannot go back. Therefore, it is now necessary to use military force to prevent Iran from having a nuclear weapon. If we don't, then the rest of the region will go nuclear, along with Venezuela, and then all of South America too.

We have to make a decision whether we want nuclear weapons in the hands of rogue nations and terrorists, or we will prevent it. We must stop this insanity now, and it is what we should do. The military option appears to be the only plausible way to see that these future events unfold on a positive note for humanity. It is time to take action, and do it so forcefully, and with so much strength and power, that no other nation ever in the future will defy us when it comes to nuclear weapons proliferation. Indeed I hope you will please consider all this and think on it.
