Iran wouldn’t risk more casualties

The Washington Times Weekly - - Letters To The Editor - NEL­SON MARANS New York

While some as­sume that our more ag­gres­sive Iran pol­icy may lead to war in the not-too-dis­tant fu­ture, the odds are that not only will it not lead to war, but it may help us avoid fu­ture wars, too (“Peace in the Mid­dle East,” May 20).

Con­trary to the claims of our al­lies, which are party to the Ira­nian nu­clear agree­ment, the terms of that doc­u­ment do not pre­vent the al­most im­me­di­ate pos­ses­sion of nu­clear weapons by Iran and the means to de­liver them.

In light of the tremen­dous casualties that Iran suf­fered in the war be­tween it and Iraq, mil­i­tary ven­tures that would risk a re­peat will not oc­cur.

Rather, we should expect an in­crease in the ag­gres­sions of Iran’s prox­ies in Ye­men, Syria, Iraq, Le­banon and Gaza with no cor­re­spond­ing re­ac­tions against Iran it­self.
