In 1938 it was Czechoslovakia. This week it was Israel. The Wall Street Journal lays it out in detail. We capitulated to Iran. It will lead to more instability and inevitably to war.
Here’s my predictions
1. Iran will develop a nuclear bomb. Sooner rather than later.
2. This will lead to one of two outcomes:
….a. Iran will deliver a working nuclear weapon to Israel and detonate it. Israel will respond.
….b. Israel will see the threat for what it is and launch preemptive strikes against Iran.
3. After 2a or 2b, there will be a larger war in the Mid-East.
The other thing you can count on is U.S. Presidents and their Secretaries of State announcing Middle East peace initiatives that fail. Every administration tries it. It looks good, and since the people they are dealing with don’t mind lying and signing papers to advance their positions, for a few press cycles it gets their current domestic problems off the front page. What is different this time is that we have left Israel to twist in the wind alone.
