Iranian Coup

Reader comment on item: Deterring Tehran

Submitted by Paul M. Neville (United States), May 9, 2006 at 17:04

I submit that what is happening in Iran is a coup by the Revolutionary Guards. They have been the last line of defense for the corrupt Mullahs and have long done their dirty work. Not sharing in the corruption they dicided to hyjack the last election resulting in the nut that is now Iran's President. After his election he has been active in replacing RG cadre in all positions under his control. The Mullahs are becoming figureheads. He has placed the nuclear program under RG control. As long as we allow him to get away with nuclear blackmail he will consolidate his position. We must strike whatever the cost to keep him from taking over completely. While we may have time before a bomb materializes we do not have time before his pustch is complete. The time to strike Hitler was on his way up. Once Hitler consolidated his control over the country and the military we had to fight WWII.
