Brandon J. Weichert talks with Hillsdale College’s “Citizen Talk” about the rising tensions with Iran and the path forward.
“In all, the president has done what very few American leaders before him have been able to do: he has weighed the costs and benefits of the deal and determined that, whatever consequences may befall the world in the short term, the longer-term prospects are almost all in America’s favor. What happens next will be difficult, but ultimately, the difficult choice will have proven to be the correct one.”
“The young people of Iran have finally struck back at their elderly oppressors. The Trump Administration must seize this opportunity to remove an existential threat without resorting to force of American arms. History is on the side of freedom–so long as free people choose to act in defense of freedom everywhere. The next generation of Iran is making their stand now. The people of the West should support them.”
“Any regime that uses 11 year-olds to fight terror groups, like ISIS, is neither an ally nor an agent of regional stability. Unless the Trump Administration takes note of these facts, Iran, not North Korea, will be America’s greatest threat in the near-to-medium term.”
“The Islamic Republic of Iran wants nuclear weapons to solidify its growing regional hegemony in the Middle East. Such an event will destabilize the already precarious regional order. The Trump Administration is committed to preventing Iran from acquiring nuclear arms at all costs–even potentially risking war with the Islamic Republic. If conflict with Iran were to erupt, Iran’s long-time strategic partner, the Russian Federation, would disproportionately benefit.”

Turkey has just accused the United States of supporting terrorist groups in Syria. I explain how they are wrong and why I find this claim not only absurd and laughable, but also disgustingly hypocritical.
