Is Iran Really a Threat?

That is the question the Compass Blog over at RealClearWorld is asking, at least in regard to America's security. Writer Greg Scoblete cites an article in London's Daily Telegraph that argues Iran is a bigger threat to global security than even Afghanistan or Pakistan. Scoblete notes though that Iran's threat isn't global but instead aimed at two specific regions/goals - Israel and disrupting the flow of oil out of the Persian Gulf, and there have been no acts of terrorism on American soil - actual or attempted - that have been traced back to Iran.

Meanwhile a media event staged by the Pakistani military this morning to tout their recent offensive against terrorist groups in their Waziristan region turned up passports of militants linked to both the Madrid train bombings of 2004 and the 9/11 attacks.

It does make you wonder...
