Recent saber-rattling by Iran is a sign that the Middle East country is weak and desperately trying to portray itself as a military powerhouse, says Judith Miller, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and Fox News contributor.

"This is the hallmark of a country that's kind of weak and trying to tell its own people that it's really prepared for anything, that it's prepared to defend them against Satans, be they real or fictional," Miller told "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

Story continues below video.



Last week, Iranian state television aired a documentary featuring a computerized simulation of an attack on Israeli cities.

A senior Iranian naval commander also announced that several warships have been sent to the Atlantic Ocean, close to U.S. maritime borders.

Miller says that despite those developments, the United States is gaining much from the nuclear disarmament deal recently struck with Iran.

"Today's New York Times . . . points out the Iranian government agreement for the first time in years to provide new information about . . . what it claims is its now-defunct nuclear weapons program to the IEAE, the international inspectors," she said.

"They're going to give specific information about the work that they did to develop a nuclear detonator for a bomb. We're getting access to uranium mines and other facilities, [such as] laser enrichment plants, that we've never had access to before, and this is the result of this agreement.

"This agreement's not perfect, but it's darn better than anything we've seen before with Iran since 2003, when the Iranians suspended their program in the aftermath of the Iraqi invasion by President [George W.] Bush."
