Has our fear of terrorism waned to the point that the republicans have to ramp up the Cold War again?

svenge: Mugato: From who exactly?

Iran comes to mind. Currently they only have intermediate-range ballistic missiles (like the Fajr-3, which has a range of 1250 miles) but I'm sure they're working on longer-range systems. They've already got MIRV warheads on the Fajr-3, so it's not like they using cut-rate bottle rockets...

At what point do we realize that Iran, despite saber rattling, has not ONCE in the last 50 years made a single move that was outright suicidal? They will not pre-emptively attack Israel openly. They will not pre-emptively attack the US openly.

What they want is to have a nuke and missile to prevent either the US or Israel (or a neighbor) from attacking them so that they can focus on indirect methods of projecting and gaining power in the region.

Iran is a bad actor, but let's not make them into the next USSR.
