• Esteemed International Intelligence Agency Says: Yep, Iran Is to Blame

    Some folks won’t be convinced by the facts, but for those willing to be impacted by evidence … we’ve received more of it confirming the Iranian regime is a problem for America and other nations desiring peace.

    One News Now’s Chad Groening writes:

    A national defense analyst says it’s not surprising to hear more evidence that the Iranian regime is behind recent attacks across the Middle East.

    The head of Israel’s National Intelligence Agency, Mossad, is publicly stating Iran is responsible for recent oil tanker bombings in the Persian Gulf and strikes on Iraqi and Saudi Arabian oil fields.

    The attacks, he said, “were approved by the Iranian leadership, and were carried out, at least mostly, by the Revolutionary Guard and their surrogates.”

    Senior fellow for national security at the Family Research Council and Retired U.S. Army Lieutenant Colonel Bob Maginnis says the revelations from Mossad only back up current suspicions.

    “It just re-emphasizes that Iran’s maligned activities across the Middle East are unhelpful. It will continue to do so especially if pressure continues to put them in the corner. I think they’ll continue to strike out.”

    Iran has threatened to breach the nuclear deal brokered with the Obama administration, exceeding a cap on uranium enrichment that permitted nuclear power plants but supposedly foreclosed their building nuclear weapons.

    Hassan Rouhani, Iran’s president, remains defiant, presently vowing to enrich uranium to “any amount we want”.

    The Iranian regime is a gaggle of international bad actors, troublemakers; yes, enemies of the United States. The prospect of their gaining nukes is inconceivable. American shoulder-shrugging, sending a message that we’ll put up with whatever threatening course the Iranians take, more concerned with avoiding conflict at any cost than with safeguarding our national security and interests is governmental negligence of a primary obligation.

    “National defense is one of the cardinal duties of a statesman,” pronounced Founding Father John Adams (1815).

    Iran’s menacings are serious matters – they demand a serious response from those desiring long-term peace. Actual, physical military action may not be required, but a figurative shot across the Persian Republic’s bow is in order, informing it certain actions remain intolerable in a civilized world.
