The recent threats and harassment from Iranian patrol boats are a distraction at best. The use of these speed boats against a fully armed and fully capable US Warship is to deflect attention away from the work on their nuclear program.
These actions by Iran are comparable to the nuisance of a fly. By taunting and harassing US ships it shows how little of an effect they have on us. The Iranians have backed themselves into a corner, at some point in time they will need to get out of it. The only way for Iran to resolve this issue is to stop making threats against our warships and allow IAEA Inspectors unrestricted access to its nuclear facilities.
Iran must halt its pursuit of a nuclear capability, if Iran seeks a peaceful path forward, America will help it move forward. America will help Iran develop its Domestic nuclear program. The cost of helping Iran develop a domestic nuclear program outweighs a nuclear armed Iran. The Middle East should not be under the threat of a nuclear Iran. Our allies in Israel have a lot at stake, the 5.8 million Jews and 1.8 million Arabs are in the crosshairs of the current Iranian Regime.
Under an ENNIS Administration it will be the US Policy of opening relations with the citizens of Iran. America will reach out to the youth of Iran to help them seek their own way. America will seek a peaceful revolution in Iran.
