Is the Threat From Iran, Terrorists and the Taliban Real?

Someone who wished to post a comment on my blog (the comment will be posted as soon as "anonymous" identifies herself) wrote that my recent article "The Fragility of Freedom" was using scare tactics. In the article I referred to several external  as well as internal threats to our citizens' safety and liberties.

On the external threats, I referenced included:
  1. Iran's ability to have nuclear weapons within the next two years and that if they were to drop a bomb on one of our major cities, such as Chicago, the events of 9/11 will pale in comparison.
  2. Countries around the world have theocratic governments (meaning church and state are combined) and the mission of those governments is to convert the world to their system. In those countries, women have no rights.
  3. Terrorists who cloak themselves in religion intend to inflict as much harm as possible on our country and our citizens.
I believe these external threats are real and should be taken seriously.

Do you agree or disagree?
