You bet -- -- -- Dow is up Fox News national security analyst KT McFarland and the start with.
Your reaction to what what Michael shorter had to say regarding let's start with Iran he he seem to think they they're gonna get the bomb and be that the not gonna use.
Another big deal it's not so much what we think it's what the Israelis and because Israel as a country that is made up of -- sons and daughters and grandchildren a holocaust survivors so when they CF what they think is a guy who's saying I'm gonna kill Jews I'm gonna eliminate Israel wipe it off the map.
And is getting the weapons that enables him to do bad they have to take that threat seriously.
They can't say well it's probably never gonna happen so -- -- the calculations slightly different.
And if Israel feels backed into a corner that it has no friends that nobody's gonna stop the mullahs of Iran from getting nuclear weapons and targeting Israel.
They will take action themselves and that's -- where they can start that they can't finish and that's why we're have a slightly different calculation of.
I believe that was Vice President Biden during debate was bringing up the kind of a domino effect -- -- if they get the bomb.
Then for for all these other countries over there will get the bomb and somebody is going is about -- or sell it to a terrorist.
Well that's right at MF they're sort of two reasons why we have problems with Iran with nuclear weapons -- obviously is the Israeli reason.
The second is will they use they have the power that nuclear weapons gives them to expand throughout the region.
So -- Iran with nuclear weapons and is Iran the potential controls the Persian gulf.
Controls the free flow of oil through.
Apparently they wanna be the big Kahuna so let's their gold is an affair the first country and have heard of the world -- has nuclear weapons -- what they GAAP.
They get an enormous amount of power that a -- and we're we're to the saudis come in on us what the saudis had so important to -- less saudis have and your right to ask because guess what the saudis have sent.
If Iran gets nuclear weapons we've got to get our -- And the saudis say don't have to wait years -- don't just go by that the Pakistan -- So you could see a situation where one country another country and everybody gets nuclear weapons money will be no object at -- the most dangerous part of the world.
That in the odd part I think lot of people forget about the fact that when we first went into Afghanistan Iran was.
Behind us cheering brush and then -- are a religious.
Element to all the things in the Middle East it seemed like.
Well tribal religious -- the whole -- out but I mean if you look at it from -- -- percent respectively went into Afghanistan on their eastern border they thought that was great.
And we went into Iraq and their western border -- eliminating their two major -- so initially I thought this -- celebrate.
But quite that -- you know I think is important we're from making.
Yes nuclear technology is out there and -- we'll get nuclear weapons has a lot of Smart scientists -- well.
The questions not an Iran with nuclear weapons is this -- -- -- this particular leadership.
That's why I think the best option for United States is to so crash their economy so quickly.
That the Iranian people go back into the streets like they did in 2009.
And have their own Arab Spring uprising.
What we hear about the fact that there was an opportunity to support the uprising and we did not right what what was it that we did not do that we could've done.
This isn't 2009 there was an election in Iran which everybody thought was -- And it come down and exit the current leadership won reelection so the Iranian people went out into the streets over a million of them.
And based chanted America America where are -- you told us to do -- and President Obama at that point shut him down.
He's at that point thought it was going to negotiate with the Ayatollah right and so as a result the Iranian.
Regime you know killed a lot of but a lot of an employer -- what could he have done Fidelity did later.
When -- of spring happen in Egypt Tunisia and Morocco which is to support.
They're reformers to support the overthrow of the dictators heavy did eventually do -- I think you probably didn't in the wrong places -- but that was a problem.
Your comments to -- -- does -- what's.
It would not happen.
I think quite a -- -- -- ever learn from our cursed out and I was in the White House during Watergate these things have a predictable course of events of policy screws up.
That may try to blame everybody else and -- throw a lot of smoke and here's another scorcher -- -- -- but why it's me sad that they did this why did and do it.
The recent and it was because five days before September 11 president Obama's that the Democratic Convention -- -- modest dad al-Qaeda is on its heels.
He has dropped -- from his stump speech just this week just this week why because it's obviously not true.
You don't have an al-Qaeda on its heels is able to attack American soil which is what a consulate has.
And kill American ambassadors and launched demonstrations.
And -- -- storming American families that men and growing well let's -- Michael Sawyer was.
I want in that 2000.
Al-Qaeda is now in Afghanistan -- that they act in Iraq in this area of these countries what I I have to be big to do something as we've just seen and and Libya and you don't need to have a huge operation through and what al-Qaeda is doing is we think it's a joke right we think who are these people what do they think they're god don't challenge in America but -- -- -- thirty countries.
KT McFarland great information thank you reminds -- and.
