Why Iran Persists
Iran continues to export terror and build a nuclear weapons capability because of a lack of will on the part of the nations that oppose Tehran's aggressor agenda. The "mad mullahs" see no consequence imposed on North Korea for belligerence and intransigence and so figure that Iran too is immune from serious repercussions no matter how much carnage Iranians inflict taking up the side of Assad in Syria, how much they aid Hezbollah to dominate Lebanon or export terror attacks aimed at Israeli or Jews the world over, or even as it becomes undeniable that the aim of Tehran's nuclear project is to create an atomic attack capability. Appeasement does not prevent war but causes worse conflagration than early decisive action.
