As the world’s superpower, it is the duty of America to take a stand against such a large-scale threat. This threat is the threat of a nuclear war starting in the Middle East. Our most crucial ally is Israel, as we share common values. This ally is being threatened by another nation. Our role now is only one thing: to support our ally and any decision it makes.
This is not to say we must instantly invade the enemy, starting a war, which could have been avoided in other ways. It is to say, however, that we keep a close watch on Iran and its nuclear development, and not take anything lightly. We must do everything we can to support Israel and persuade those who are more reluctant to do the same.
If we are not to support Israel, and we turn a blind eye, the consequences are catastrophic. If Iran bombs Israel, immediately all allies will get drawn into the war. This is because the Middle East is such a central part of the world, mostly because nations depend on it for oil. Once each nation is drawn in, it will be World War III. The United States will be forced into a draft and our economy will collapse even more as our resources will all be pointed toward war. Fear will rage through the country and utter chaos will break lose.
The answer is not to create a war now, but to show the world the United States supports Israel with any decision. This will show a power in numbers and hopefully bring fear upon those who wish to attack. Also, if the United States shows zero doubt in its decision to back Israel, other nations will be more willing to support as well.
The United States has led the world in many things and it now has the duty to confidently rally support for Israel....
