The Approaching Storm

Reader comment on item: Prepare to attack [Iran]

Submitted by Rebecca Moulds (United States), Jun 11, 2008 at 12:50

We all suspected that the US was preparing for war against Iran, and now it's been made much clearer that our only option may be to take the initiative, as Israel may have to.

The fact that the Iranian military is now involved in nuclear production has changed the whole scenario, and has made the NIE from last year, not only a laughing point, but null and void. Another frightening scenario is Barack Obama winning the presidency----although our leaders are not dictators, they still have the authority behind their office, and Obama will pussyfoot around the Iranian nuclear threat, negotiating instead of taking action.

There are times for diplomacy and times for action---as in Ecclesiastes 3:8 " . . . a time of war, and a time of peace." Most Americans do not want yet another war added to the already shameful financially -debilitating Iraq war, but sometimes there is no other option, when faced with an enemy regime such as the Iranian one, who has openly threatened the United States and called for the destruction of Israel. While the world watches, we cannot allow that to ever happen. The Creator, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, will always protect Israel, but we are also persuaded to use our intelligence and be pro-active.
