Some Americans might want to refer to the 'nuclear Iran' as a threat, but with many other countries having nuclear technology and the fact that Iran has not attacked anyone, Americans have difficulty being credible with reasons to fear Iran.
“ISIL is not your parents’ al-Qaeda – it’s a very different model,” Comey told the audience at the Aspen Security Forum. “By virtue of that model it’s currently the threat that we’re worrying about in the homeland most of all.”
In apparent retaliation, the Islamic State has attacked Russia. Clearly the picture includes war between the Islamic State (ISIS) and Russia. Put in other terms, one of our enemies is fighting against another of our enemies. Why would the United States interfere?
