Iran: America Too Depleted to Attack Even if We Make the Bomb!

The analysis weighs in on the financial trouble in America:: “It appears that subsequent to several wars, the United States finds itself depleted and desperate. Their total debt exceeds $14.5 trillion which is equal to America’s GDP. Seemingly this year’s $900 billion will not stretch to cover the defense and military budget of the years to come.  The United States will retreat from the world of Islam and the Arab world so that it can refocus its energy on China, which, in the American view, is its global rival.”

Recently, Iranian officials have increased their call for the U.S. forces to leave the region. This is while they continue to help Shiite militias in Iraq and Taliban fighters and al-Qaeda elements in Afghanistan to attack our forces.

The Iranians are also exerting pressure on the U.S. and its allies in the region by helping to incite unrest in Yemen, Bahrain, and elsewhere while calling for the unification of Muslims against Israel and America.

The strategy of the radicals ruling Iran is to keep the U.S. fixed in these theaters knowing full well the cost of the wars. They know that in order to achieve their goal of seeing the demise of America, they need to create circumstances where the U.S. can no longer afford the financial burden of protecting its interests in the region and therefore will be forced to withdraw its forces, allowing Iran to expand and exert power.

To that effect, the Iranian officials have boasted that this is the century of the Islamic awakening and that Islamic nations will soon be able to control the world’s economy through the control of oil and the world’s strategic passages.

The Iranian leaders also believe that as long as the U.S. is financially weak, as long as oil prices remain high, and as long as it is involved on too many fronts it will not dare confront Iran. That is why they have made a decision to continue on with their nuclear program in spite of four sets of UN sanctions. They’ve even gone so far as to mock the U.S. for the ineffectiveness of those sanctions.

One thing is for sure: the jihadists in Tehran feel invincible because, despite the continuous killing of our soldiers in both Iraq and Afghanistan and despite their pursuit of the nuclear bomb, America and the West have shown little stomach for confronting the Islamic regime in Iran.

Weakness is being observed. The belief in Islam is for one to deceive the enemy until they are strong enough to take them out. Radicals ruling Iran think that is only a matter of time!
