An Iranian assassination attempt on US soil should be a wake-up call for neo-isolationists: we have to continue to take the international terror threat seriously. ++ The nature of the plot shows that Iran is a legitimate threat that sees itself at war with the US, Europe, and their allies. ++ This was not one of the many ramshackle home-made plots broken up over the past decade; this was a serious operation sponsored by a hostile government. ++ Iran thinks it can get away with its belligerence; the US and its allies must not let them.
