Syria’s brutal civil war and Iran’s renegade nuclear program pose serious threats to countries across the Middle East and beyond. Yet Israel is the only nation truly stepping forward to confront these challenges, as the West still seems to be shell-shocked by the fallout of the 2003 Iraq war.

The US intelligence community in particular has been perilously slow at deciphering the obvious – that Iran is on the threshold of nuclear weapons capabilities and the Syrian regime has used chemical agents against its own citizens. This has given the Obama administration cover for its very hesitant approach to these impending threats.
