Predicting Iran


From Rick Santorum’s year-end column:

This year the confrontation with Iran I’ve been warning about for four years will come to a head, but not in the form of Israeli air strikes.

That’s not because the Iranian program has passed the point of no return, the Iranian sites are safe from Israeli air strikes, or the United States is refusing to cooperate with Israel. No, an Israeli attack is not in the cards because Israel knows this would help the corrupt Iranian regime hold on to the power that is slowly, surely slipping from its hands.

Iran’s Green Revolution is real. It continues to grow despite Obama’s lack of support and his ongoing endorsement of the current dangerous regime. (Protesters last month chanted, “Obama, are you with us or against us?”) Its killing of protesters last week during the Shiite high holy day of Ashura could be the beginning of the end for President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and the mullahs. Iran will be engaged in a revolution next year, and Obama’s actions will determine the winner.

The former senator also predicts that in his Pennsylvania, Specter will win the primary but lose the general to Toomey.
