Iran's Destabilizing Role in the Middle East
When it comes to Iran, attention has rightly been focused on efforts to stop its nuclear program. Iran's nuclear program is just the tip of the revolutionary sphere that extends across the world and threatens key U.S. interests. Iran's foreign policy is subversive, sectarian, and set on goals that would come at the expense of U.S. interests. Indeed, with Iran's long support of terrorist groups and support of militias and adversarial regimes, the region has been feeling the brunt of this revolutionary sphere for quite some time. Thanks to Iran, Hamas has rearmed since 2012. With Iran's aid, Shi'a militias within Iran are rearming and they are mobilizing. The Assad regime, with the Iranian forces-with Quds Forces and with Hezbollah-continues to massacre Syrians. With Iran's aid, Hezbollah is able to threaten Israel with over 25,000 rockets. These aren't random efforts to support terrorism by the Iranian regime but concerted actions by this ayatollah-led-and he is the key decision maker-this Shi'a-led government to overturn what Iran believes is a regional power structure that favors the United States, that favors Israel and their collaborators, by which they mean the Sunni Muslim governments in the Gulf.
