Krauthammer’s Take: Beware Iran

by NRO Staff

A regional conflict could result from an American intervention in Syria if Iran feels that it is in control in the Middle East, Charles Krauthammer said Friday night.

Speaking on Special Report, Krauthammer warned that Iran historically parallels Germany and that it desires its own “place in the sun.”

“If you make a miscalculation here and you let Iran imagine that it is in charge,” Krauthammer said, it will threaten Israel, which will respond “fiercely.”

“Well, if [Obama] miscalculates and the Iranians or Hezbollah reacts, we could have a regional war, a major regional war,” he said.
