Political Solution #21 - Eliminating Iran's Nuclear Capability

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY:

  • Iran is an enemy of the United States
  • The current Iranian regime sponsors, funds, and trains terrorist organizations around the world, all the while looking for opportunities to attack and kill Americans and America’s allies
  • Air strikes and increased drone capability should be on the table
  • Our ally, Israel, must be protected from Iranian attack
  • Iran is trying to acquire nuclear capabilities and must be stopped

 

FULL COMMENTARY:

I believe that one of the most pressing foreign policy issues of our time is the potential for Iran to possess nuclear weapons capabilities.

The United States of America has had a long and tumultuous relationship with our known enemy, Iran. They have taken American citizens as hostages, our pastors as prisoners, convicted our students as spies, commandeered our vessels, bombed our consulates, and shot down our assets with little to no military response.  The extent to which Iran is willing to go to provoke the U.S. seems to have no limits. Yet, the Biden administration was to negotiate with this rogue nation, reduce sanctions, instead of holding their feet to the fire. While I believe that military action should be the option of last resort, I also believe that we have come to the point (red line) where we should stand ready and be in a position to respond militarily.

The current Iranian regime sponsors, funds, and trains terrorist organizations around the world, all the while looking for opportunities to attack and kill Americans and America’s allies. Beyond this, they are working feverishly to acquire nuclear weapons capabilities for first strike advantage against our dear friend and longtime ally, Israel. We must do everything we can to protect Israel. The Bible tells us to, “Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee” (Psalms 122:6). It is not a command that we should take lightly.   

Furthermore, if we put Israel in a position where they have to respond and attack Iran before they acquire nuclear capabilities, we risk destabilizing the entire Arab region. We need a clearly defined strategic plan and exit strategy for the containment of Iran’s nuclear program and their blatant aggression towards America and Israel.

That plan should start with coalition building attempts to include our strategic partners and allies. However, America always reserves the right to take unilateral military action if her national security interests are at stake. While I do not support boots on the ground, an accelerated and catastrophic surgical air strike targeting Iran’s nuclear facilities should be considered in the future, if necessary. In addition, our drone capability must be ramped up in the region.
