Iran is going full bore to develop its own nuclear arsenal, along with the missiles to deliver those weapons anywhere in the world, including the U.S. This episode of What’s Ahead examines why the U.S. may bomb those Iranian facilities.
The outgoing Trump administration, the Israelis and most Arab states are fearful that Joe Biden will resurrect the appeasement policies that Barack Obama and he had pursued, starting with resurrecting the profoundly flawed 2015 nuclear deal with the mullahs.
The chief nuclear scientist who had been crucial to the progress of Iran’s nuclear program was assassinated last week. This will delay but not halt Iran’s nuclear efforts, and it will not deter the regime from its goal of dominating the region’s massive oil fields.
These are the reasons that Washington may undertake a major air strike on Iran’s nuclear facilities before President Trump leaves office next month.
