The former Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) director James Woolsey (pictured) has said the US should destroy virtually all of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) infrastructure as well as Iran’s nuclear facilities to reduce its terrorist and nuclear threats.
He told The Jerusalem Post:
“The next time the IRGC looks cross-eyed at us… we should turn loose six to 12 MOAB [GBU-43/B Massive Ordnance Air Blast] bombs on their facilities.
“Given what a source of terrorism the IRGC is… instead of talking and proportionality – the hell with proportionality. We should destroy virtually everything we can that has to do with the IRGC.
“I think their seizing of a US ship [in January 2016] was an act of war. We went to war on less than that in the War of 1812.”
He added that he “would not use MOABs against civilian facilities, but against military facilities… and we would be wise to take out everything related to their nuclear program.”
Describing the Iran nuclear deal as “worse than worthless,” he said:
“I would deal with the deal under American constitutional law. Any really major international agreement must be a treaty. You are committing the entire American people to something. This should have been a treaty. Its executive agreement status should be canceled, and it should be submitted to the Senate. If approved, it goes into effect, and if not, not.”
