Daniel Johnson on the need to deter the Iranian regime

The Iranian regime may be dangerously close to acquiring nuclear weapons. This should give any sane politician or observer of the world political scene grave concern, as there is no government anywhere ion the world with greater contempt for human life. 

The new Irianian president who recently took office holds an office which has been little more than a figurehead position for the last few years, with real power held by the "Supreme Leader" Ayatollah Khamenei - but it is suggested that President Raisi may be the successor to Khamenai, who is 82. 

Hence he is probably the first president of Iran in recent years who is rather more than the figurehead his predecessors were - which makes his history seriously worrying. His record as a judge makes Britain's most infamous "hanging judge," the notorious Judge Jeffries, look like a soggy liberal. Raisi has been dubbed the "Butcher of Tehran" for his role in the mass executions of 30,000 men, women and children in purges of opponents by the Iranian revolutionary regime.

Daniel Johnson has a piece on "The Article" here about the need for the West to get its act together and send a clear message to Teheran that the consequence if Iran uses nuclear weapons against any of its' neighbours will be as catastrophic for Iran as they will be for the target of any such Iranian attack. If Iran obtains nuclear weapons and a clear message of deterrence is not sent to them, the likely consequenses do not bear thinking about.
