Attacking others is no worse than attacking your own

Reader comment on item: Regime Change and Nationalism

Submitted by Prashant, Jul 13, 2019 at 05:40

Dear Dr Pipes, in our fight against rogue nations, we need to very clearly outline the reasons that make those nations rogue. Iran is not rogue because it recites 'death to America'. It is rogue because it is an Islamic theocracy that attacks not just others but also it's own people. And, this reason not only makes Iran rogue but it also makes all Islamic nations equally rogue. Similarly (but less so) absence of democracy makes Russia and China rogue.

Once the reasons behind why we consider these nations rogue are clearly outlined and understood, the resistance against the policies followed by these nations will become a universal resistance and not that of just India, or USA, or Israel.
