Finally, an astute and correct observations reflecting the reality for a change. As I have said before, the Iranian president is an uneducated terrorist but those speeches were definitely rehearsed. Given the present situation described by author, he is announcing Iran and himself as the new ruler of the Muslim world and the leader of the pack (who cares to join?) for Israel destruction. And who knows, maybe tickle some nerves and provoke Israel or the West into something along the way. What should presently be in the works? The following is a must: Very strong intelligence work and information, down to the smallest of the details. (Including stimulating the regime change through progressive forces in Iran) The best possible defensive deterrents. Strong plans ready for any possible scenario with defensive and offensive surprises. At most meaningful and convincing warning of the consequences if attacked. Frankly, even with everything above, the nuclear Iran still has the potential of hanging sword at all times. So eventually maybe (I am taking the deep breath), just maybe bold planning is not such a terrible idea or out of the realm of the science fiction.
