Krauthammer: Iran Will Increase Its Aggression in Middle East

Columnist Charles Krauthammer predicted that Iran would increase support for its proxies in the wake of the deal struck with the country on Friday’s “Special Report” on the Fox News Channel.

“If Iran is pursuing destabilization and supporting its proxies in Syria, and Iraq, and Lebanon, and now in Yemen under conditions of tremendous economic strain and diplomatic isolation, the idea that when we lift the sanctions, we allow billions of dollars to flow into the treasury so it’ll be unconstrained, it will double and triple the amount of support it is giving to the Assad regime in Syria, to Hezbollah in Lebanon, to Hamas in Gaza, and Yemen, and it will also be able to invest all the money — in the maintenance and the advance of the nuclear infrastructure which everybody agrees remains intact. And the idea that it will without isolation decrease its activities when it is on the threshold of being the power in the region is completely contrary to all the evidence on the ground” he stated.
