Letter to Editors: Crush Iran Into Surrender

* I wrote and sent the following letter to the New York Sun, and a slightly different version to such prominent papers as the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, New York Post , Washington Times, USA Today and Newsday.

To the Editor,
(Re: “Santorum: Time To Get Tough With Iran,” by Ira Stoll, July 21-23) Rick Santorum correctly identifies our enemy as militant Islamics whose ideological and military center is Iran, and draws relevant parallels between their war on America to fascist Germany and World War II. Thus he is dead wrong not to propose military strikes against Iran.

Since, like the Nazis, Iran is bent on America’s destruction, than we must now use whatever military force is needed to destroy Tehran’s global terror regime, just as we did with Berlin’s Third Reich. The crucial lesson such devastation would teach militant Islamics worldwide is exactly what the Nazis learned: your ideology leads to your demise.

Santorum’s solution of supporting Iranian dissidents -- especially as their oppressive theocrats inch closer to wielding nuclear weapons -- is too late. Iran has waged war against the U.S. since taking Americans hostage in 1979. Its terrorist regime then bombed our military bases in Beirut in 1983 and Saudi Arabia in 1996, and sends proxies into battle against America and her allies in Iraq, Lebanon and Gaza today.

The more our so-called leaders evade a military policy to crush Iran into surrender, the more U.S. troops in the Middle East and potentially millions of Americans at home will perish at the hands of Iranian-backed killers.
