Imagine if the Iranian Khomeinite republic possesses the nuclear power, which Pyongyang’s strongman has. After the tests, which Kim Jong-un carried out in the skies and waters of the Pacific Ocean and across Japan, fears of nuclear annihilation re-emerged.The Korean nuclear missile fired over Japan had its own significance as the people of Nagasaki and Hiroshima suffered after the atomic bomb was dropped there in World War II.

What is the West doing with North Korea?

What’s strange is that the West which is geographically far from the Korean island – and of course from Japan and South Korea – is the most worried and occupied with its nuclear and hydrogen bombs. The rest of the Asian countries and Arab countries do not care about Kim’s rounds. So is it courage or despair?

The Iranian regime may be the most concerned in Pyongyang tests. Few days ago, and following the nuclear and hydrogen missile tests, the chairman of the North Korean Supreme People’s Assembly visited Tehran accompanied with a military and technological delegation.

Admiring North Korea

The Iranian republic’s current Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei admires North Korea since he was in the ministry of defense after the Khomeinite republic was established. This is according to what Amir Taheri explained in one of his articles published in this daily.

It is said that Iran is restrained by an agreement that prohibits uranium enrichment – an agreement reached with the blessing of former American President Barack Obama and upon the Europeans’ enthusiasm, mainly German leader Angela Merkel.

In an interview with the German daily Frankfurter Allgemeine, Chancellor Merkel enthusiastically suggested cloning the Iranian model with North Korea and said she is willing to participate in a diplomatic initiative to end North Korea’s nuclear program and missiles’ program on condition that the nuclear negotiations with Iran are a model.

Desire in the agreement

What is ironic is that Iran lost the desire in this agreement and is threatening to exit it. In an interview with the German daily Der Spiegel, Ali Akbar Salehi, the head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran, showed Iran’s teeth and displayed Sasanian pride and said: “If the US leaves the treaty and Europe follows… Iran will go back to what it was before.”
What successful model does Merkel want to market to us? Shall people in the Gulf and other countries rest assured based on illusions until they wake up one day to an Iranian nuclear test in the Indian Ocean for instance? 

In all cases, the Khomeinite Iran is dangerous with or without nuclear power. However, with nuclear power, it’s more dangerous than North Korea and this is because of the Iranian regime’s violating doctrine. A resolute man is he who expects evil before it happens.
