Comments David Holcberg of the Ayn Rand Institute on the upcoming general strike in Iran:

As the July 9 general strike in Iran approaches, the United States should do everything within its power to ensure that the popular revolt against Iran’s theocracy succeeds in overthrowing the regime.

Iran presents a much greater danger to the United States’ security than did Iraq or Afghanistan.

Iran–as acknowledged even by the terrorist appeasers at the State Department–is the most active sponsor of terrorism in the world, supporting terrorist organizations like Hamas, Hezbollah and Islamic Jihad. Moreover, Iran–alongside Saudi Arabia–is the main source of Islamic fundamentalism in the world today, and thus the principal ideological enemy of the United States and the free world.

Iran is openly developing a nuclear weapons program, and has gone as far as threatening to use its soon-to-be-produced nuclear weapons against Israel, America’s only true friend in the region. If Iran’s mad mullahs are willing to strike Israel, the “Small Satan,” they would not hesitate to strike their arch-enemy, America, the “Great Satan.”

President Bush was right when he said eighteen months ago, in his State of the Union Address, that “time is not on our side.” The President told the country and the world that he would not “wait on events, while dangers gather.” But dangers have gathered and time is running out. In a speech at West Point a year ago President Bush promised: “The United States will, if necessary, act preemptively.”

Let’s roll. Before it’s too late.
