"We are wrongly focused on the Iranian nuclear threat, which is obviously worth worrying about, but this excessively narrow focus has distracted us from the main threat, which is terrorism. The mullahs are not going to nuke our fighters in Iraq; they are going to kill as many as they can on the ground with IEDs, suicide terrorists, and assassins. And we have given them a free hand in this murderous campaign instead of unleashing political war against them in their own country. We hear lots of talk from the president and the secretary of state, but there is no sign of the sort of aggressive support we should be giving to the forces of freedom inside Iran."

I agree we should be doing our best to help the freedom-loving opposition in Iran. Unfortunately, the nukes are a higher priority than that. Even if the theocracy falls, Islamists will do their best to ensure the nuclear material stays in their hands.

Every second we dither on making Tehran glow, we make it more likely an American city will.
