I’m delighted that my friend and colleague John Bolton has joined me in a call for attacks on the terrorist training camps in Iran, from which killers are sent to Iraq and Afghanistan to kill American and allied soldiers. I have always seen this as legitimate self-defense. Iran is waging a proxy war against us, Iraqi and other Coalition forces, Lebanese forces, and Israel. There is every reason to respond. It is not legitimate for the mullahs to provide arms, money, intelligence, training and safe haven to their various killers without suffering any consequences; that is the ultimate sucker’s game for us to play, as I have been saying for years.
Fouad Ajami says the same thing, although not as specifically. Let’s hope the White House and the Pentagon finally get serious about engaging in a war that has been running for nearly thirty years.
