Territories Taken from the Islamic State Should Not Be Surrendered to the Islamic Republic

(Washington Times) Clifford D. May - The territories being liberated from the Islamic State are coveted by the Islamic Republic of Iran. Iran's rulers are global revolutionaries and jihadis - that's how they describe themselves. What they plan to do next is no mystery. They will increasingly threaten the pro-American nations of the region: Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Bahrain, the United Arab Emirates and Israel among them. White House national security advisors harbor no illusions about America's sworn enemies. They understand that when Iran's rulers chant "Death to America!" they are not asking that their "legitimate grievances" be addressed. They are, instead, articulating an intergenerational project intended to reclaim long-lost power for Islam and Iran. Iran's rulers cannot be appeased.
