It is Time to Cave into the Iranians and Give Them What They Want

As a world community we must at some point realize that the Iranians will not stop until they get what they want. We have tried diplomacy, we have tried sanctions, we have tried hollow threats. We have dangled carrots, we have asked nicely, we have promised consequences, and it is now clear that all of our efforts have been in vain and sooner or later we will have to just give them what they want.

It is easy to say, "Never! We will never cave to the Iranians, they will never get what they want!" Easy to say, but impractical. We cannot hold out forever, we cannot keep them from their goal. No. Sooner or later we are going to have to assent to their demands and give them what they want. So why don't we already?

Is what they want so bad? Sure, we will sacrifice "blood and treasure" and it will make the whole world community weary, but the Iranians resolve will not be challenged and they will get what they want sooner or later, so why not just give it to them.

Let's look at the last 5 years, this list will in no way attempt to be complete:

  • In defiance of international laws and treaties, Iran has been working to produce nuclear weapons.
  • Iran has repeatedly made threats to "wipe Israel off the map."
  • Iran has supported Iraqi insurgents with weapons, intel, and other material support.
  • Iran held an international conference to debate whether or not the holocaust happened.
  • Iran elected as President a leader of the 1979 Hostage Crisis, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
  • Iran has abducted and taken hostage 15 British soldiers from international waters - an overt act of war.

It is obvious that Iran is hell bent on having a war with the Western World, and we should give them what they want.

We have tried diplomacy, but Iran has been resolute. They will have their war with the West, and the only question the west need ask is whether we give them what they want now, or whether we wait until they become a nuclear super-power.
