Dealing with Tehran

(Washington Times) Adm. (ret.) James A. Lyons - For 30 years, when it has come to addressing Iran's acts of war against the U.S., Iran has been treated as a "sanctuary" from which it openly continues to conduct acts of state-sponsored terrorism and also train, equip and lead through proxies and the Quds Force the adversaries we are fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan. The Iranian theocracy is behind repeated acts of terrorism or combat killings of hundreds, if not thousands, of our military and civilian personnel. The latest information I have is that the illegitimate Khamenei-Ahmadinejad regime is coming apart from within. However, we are in a race to bring about the downfall of this corrupt regime before it can achieve a nuclear weapon or nuclear device. The opposition in Iran is poised to act, but it requires outside support. The writer was commander in chief of the U.S. Pacific Fleet and senior U.S. military representative to the UN.
