Let's be blunt. The Islamic Republic of Iran is and has always been the major problem and danger in the Middle East and internationally. President Barack Hussein Obama and his secretary of state, Hillary Clinton, have pursued, at best, a policy of appeasement that has not worked – even assuming their intentions are genuine, which I doubt. Iran will within months acquire atomic weapons that can be delivered through missiles, as well as planes and ships, and has threatened – in the face of increased sanctions – not only to annihilate Israel and attack us too, but also to set ablaze the Strait of Hormuz, which is the gateway to oil shipments from Middle Eastern producers throughout the world. This would cripple the world's economy and send us into an irreparable depression. Iran's threat is a declaration of war, and we must now respond in kind with massive force!
The immediate need to destroy the Islamic regime once and for all is heightened by what is going on in neighboring Iraq. Predictably, after nine years of American intervention and occupation cleverly couched by former President George W. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney – after Saddam's weapons of mass destruction were not found – as the creation of a "free democracy" in this Arab country, with all of the blood, sweat and tears our brave servicemen and their families have borne, Iraq is now becoming "greater Iran." Shiite Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, even by the admission of the liberal New York Times, "is moving to consolidate authority, create a one-party Shiite dominated state" and in effect throw his lot in with his Shiite brothers in Tehran – the neo-Nazi mullahs who not only threaten and are thus far succeeding with world conquest in the name of Allah, but also torture, maim and murder their own people to hold on to total power. So now Iran and Iraq will essentially be one big terrorist state – with tremendous wealth, thanks to their huge oil resources and revenues – bent on successfully waging Islamic revolution not just in the Middle East, but worldwide. And, of course we know that the Islamic regime supports other terrorist states and groups and is the major financier and source of terrorism.
I, for one, am aghast not just at the prospect of a "greater Iran," but I am outraged that our so-called political leaders sacrificed a huge number of American lives for what was inevitable in the end. But despite the stupidity and negligence of George W. Bush and Barack Hussein Obama and their enablers, like Sen. John McCain, in not making the removal of the Islamic regime in Iran the major priority, now is the final time to act before it is too late. The radical mullahs in Tehran are a scourge that must be destroyed. To allow them to exist one minute more would be tantamount to reliving the mistakes that led to the rise of Adolf Hitler, World War II and the Holocaust.

Importantly, an increasing number of Iranian-Americans now understand that war with Iran will entail significant civilian casualties in their native country. And, while many Iranian-Americans still have loved ones there, they are increasingly willing to accept the consequences of all-out war with the Islamic regime. That is because they know, better than most of the rest of us, what this terrorist state means not only to the fight for freedom in their own country, but to world peace and hoped for economic prosperity. This is the most evil regime since the Third Reich, and it must be expunged now before it is too late.
