By JAVIER MANJARRESWhile appearing on Fox News’ ‘Hannity’ show, former Congressman Allen West stated that any focus on military strikes in the Middle East should be directed towards “the nerve center” of terrorism and Islamic extremism, Iran.
If this is a proxy war, and understand, before there was al Qaeda there was Hezbollah, who killed 238 Marines in Beirut-they were supported by Iran. Iran is really the center, the nerve center, and sometimes you have to go after the head, and I think that if you want to the right thing, strategically, you maybe want to focus against Iran, so that you don’t give them the initiative.-Allen West
West also warned that cruise missile, or any other missiles launched at Syria’s chemical weapons stockpiles would not destroy the munitions, adding a that by attacking Syria, a third world war could erupt in the region.
West added that Islamist rebels could move on the chemical stockpiles, and that these chemical weapon munitions could be turned into IED’s.
