Iran, how big is the threat? by Michael Rubin ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Michael Rubin describes three top issues that are of concern to the U.S. in regards to Iran: Iranian involvement in Iraq; the nuclear proliferation issue; and, terrorism. In this speech Rubin addresses the first two issues. Mr. Rubin provides an historical context for Iran current view of itself by explaining that until the middle of the 17th century, Iran was nearly twice its current size. Iran believes that these areas should look to Iran for leadership. Iran is a theocracy whose views are forced on the population by use of well armed militias loyal to various religious leaders. The U.S. has a wide range of options from engagement to military action in how to relate to Iran. Engagement with Iran on the part of the European Union has lead to a cash bonanza which has allowed Iran to purchase military hardward. Military action should be the very last option. Iran is purchasing nuclear materials not necessary for the generation of electricity. Rubin believes that the current leadership of Iran wants nuclear weapons to deter neighboring countries who might seek to interfer with Iran internal strategies
