Iranian Politics: A Ticking Time Bomb
Any fool can see Achmadinejad’s agenda. Stopping it will be the part that takes brains.
Iran has been an unstable country for decades. For all this time, it has somehow eluded United Nations’ sanctions on its illegal activity, and it is culminating with its refusal to terminate further development of nuclear power.
Under the guise of efficient energy for his people, Mr. Achmadinejad has stubbornly refrained from serious talks with western peacemakers about closing down Iran’s nuclear plants. This presents a serious threat to one of the United States’ fierestest allies.
Israel is a country with less square miles than the state of New Jersey. It has the highest concentration and second largest total population of Jews in the entire world. Unfortunately, these demographics only make its situation work less. Mr. Achmadinejad has not tried to conceal his hatred for both the state and the people; quite the opposite, as he has used Israel’s Arab neighbors to create more animosity than Israel can handle.
This isn’t even taking into account the nuclear threat that Iran poses. Iran has the right kind of leadership and is in the perfect situation to begin nuclear war with Israel, an idea that Israel will not be able to handle. It doesn’t even matter that any nuclear strikes on Israel would affect its neighbors: it is a risk Iran is ready to take.
For America, it becomes a matter of beating Iran in politics. This is not an easy feat, as America would require the recognition of Europe, which it hasn’t had for decades. It would need to make an outstanding diplomatic move that forces both Iran and its long term beneficiary France’s hands. At any rate, it needs to effectively shut down Iran’s nuclear threat without risking all out war in the Middle East, preferably without military action.
The world’s economy will not be able to handle a struggle between Iran, Israel and the rest of the Middle East. The United States needs to take into its own hand what the United Nations has blundered with for years and end it now.
