MILLINOCKET, Maine, March 8, 2015 — Let us propose a scenario: The year is 2025, Isis has fully established its caliphate, secured the loyalties of Boko Haram, Hezbollah, Hamas, the Muslim Brotherhood and dozens of splinter groups.
The caliphate controls Lebanon, Syria, Iraq and, after a very bloody conflict, Jordan. The Sinai Peninsula, having been recently overrun by the forces of Isis, is now claimed by the caliphate.
The caliphate now encircles Israel and concentrates its manpower and firepower with constant attacks on the nation.
On top of all this, Iran now has full nuclear capabilities and does not hesitate to say it will use those capabilities as it sees fit.
Iran is a Shia Muslim society. The Caliphate is Sunni Muslim. Shia and Sunni have been the ultimate bad-blood brothers for fourteen centuries.
In Tehran the Shia government make a decision… launch a nuclear attack on little Satan Israel, and as a bonus, wipe out their competition, the Sunnis. This will leave the Middle East under the control of Iran. An attack on the great Satan, the United States, will soon follow.
While this may sound far-fetched, Benjamin Netanyahu has recently warned about the dangers of a nuclear-armed Iran. Meanwhile, efforts to contain Isis have proven difficult since a U.S. commitment to defeating Isis has been lukewarm or non-existent.
We must not rely on capitulation or appeasement. We are at a point in history to affect the outcome of events in the Middle East. Failure to act accordingly to this threat may tragically lead to a realized version of the above scenario.
