Interview with Ilan Berman

Interesting interview with the author of Tehran Rising. He says,

“We're not concerned over Iran's nuclear program, per se, or we shouldn't be, because the nuclear program actually predates the Islamic Republic. It started in the late '60s and early '70s under the shah. We knew all about it, and we weren't worried. We are worried about this regime getting a nuclear capability, and it has everything to do with the fact that this is the world's leading state-sponsor of terrorism…”

I truly hope that other Americans share this view. Many, it seems to me, do not---i.e. They see Iran, not merely the Islamic Republic, as the danger. After all, why else did they help sustain the anti-Iranian regime?
