Iran’s desperation makes it more deadlyScoffing at the 9/11 tragedy and denying the Holocaust are both dangerous and shocking behavior from a potential nuclear power, but these declarations say something even more disturbing about Ahmadinejad. He sees the world through the eyes of a street fighter, continuously spewing threats from the losing side of his global gang fight in the attempt to save face. After all, Ahmadinejad was among the mob that stormed the U.S. Embassy in Tehran in 1979, a protected symbol of dialogue between nations — the dialogue he was allegedly seeking at Columbia just last week.
This brutal mentality makes a nuclear Iran even more dangerous. We have no assurance that Ahmadinejad would not pass the bomb to one of his many proxy terrorist groups in Iraq, Lebanon and Gaza to be detonated in London, Paris, New York or Tel Aviv. In fact, I believe he would, for dictators never know when to stop, and in their desperation they don’t hesitate to take others down with them.
