Joshua Muravchik is a Resident Scholar of the conservative think tank, the American Enterprise Institute. Muravchik is one of the early neocons, and has a family relationship with other neocons. Muravchik is a signatory to the Project for the New American Century.
Muravchik is signatory to multiple letters published by the Project for a New American Century (or PNAC), Muravchik has "been associated with a string of hawkish pressure groups supporting George W. Bush's ininterventionist policies in the middle east".
In November 2006, Muravchik called for a bomb attack on Iran:
- If Tehran establishes dominance in the region, then the battlefield might move to Southeast Asia or Africa or even parts of Europe, as the mullahs would try to extend their sway over other Muslim peoples. In the end, we would no doubt win, but how long this contest might last and what toll it might take are anyone's guess.
- The only way to forestall these frightening developments is by the use of force. Not by invading Iran as we did Iraq, but by an air campaign against Tehran's nuclear facilities.
