Israel's Bennett inspired by Reagan in fight against Iran nuclear program
'Iran is a rotten regime,' the prime minister said. 'They can’t even supply clean water to their citizens, but invest their resources in nuclear development'.

Former US president Ronald Reagan’s “Star Wars” program is Prime Minister Naftali Bennett’s model in countering the Iranian nuclear threat, Bennett said ahead of meeting parties to the Iran deal at the UN Climate Conference in Glasgow this week. In an interview with The Times released as he headed to Scotland on Sunday, Bennett said he plans on “outspending Iran” and likened the Israel-Iran conflict to the Cold War between the US and the Soviet Union.

“The parallel is what Reagan did,” Bennett said. “Reagan didn’t have to bomb Moscow.” In 1983, Reagan announced the Strategic Defense Initiative, nicknamed “Star Wars,” to develop a defense system against ballistic strategic nuclear weapons. Soviet attempts to compete with American military superiority crippled the USSR’s economy and contributed to the end of the Cold War.
