The guy in the white house claims that we either accept his horrendous proposal and complete surrender to Iran or we face the prospect of immediate all out war with the mad mullahs. The assertion is that this deal is good because it…..well exactly what do we get out of it? He asserts that Iran will not be developing any nukes for at least 1o years but history with Iran and other terror organizations around the world clearly indicate that such an assertion is childish at best and out right treasonous at worst. He puts out nation and our important allies in harms way only to fulfill some delusional and narcissistic impulse to be remembered as a great diplomat. After all he won the Noble Peace prize his first month in office, could we expect anything less.
The comparisons to Neville Chamberlain are astounding. He also assured the world that old Hitler had been brought to heel and proudly waved the copy of the agreement from Munich and claimed we had “peace in our time’. Well, guess it depended on how long you defined “time”. It turned out to be a little over one year. He is all about himself and that legacy. He’ll have a legacy alright and it will live in infamy.
What would have been so bad about leaving everything exactly where they were and letting Iran suffer the consequences of the sanctions? They are going to do what they want to do toward building a nuke either way. Could any thoughtful and thinking person doubt otherwise? They lie and do it often and brazenly. They will only ramp up their mischief in the entire Middle East with the extra funding of billions they will get immediately from this deal. A few billion here and there to Al Queada, Nusra, in Syria, Egypt, Iraq and Lebanon can cause untold grief, death and misery to millions and advance their ideology at the same time. They have no incentive to refrain from that course of action.
We have many military options besides putting 200,000 soldiers on the ground in an invasion of Iran which is the clear false choice presented by the current white house occupant. Unfortunately many who do not know history and get their news from TMZ will buy into that sophistry. The are many degrees of military action that could be taken and be very effective. How about using our Navy and air power to destroy the Iranian navy. That would be doable and as wars go pretty low risk but a painful blow to our adversary. Further we could impose a complete blockade on Iran in addition to sanctions and cripple what economy they have which in turn would greatly diminish their capacity to spread terror with money and arms and even troops throughout the Middle East. If that wasn’t enough we could also take down their air force entirely. Yes, it would cost some money but how much will be spending anyway under the Iran Deal? We would have to spend mony to fight the terrorists the export and those they supply. And also yes it would have casualties. All wars do sadly but would we be safer with a defanged Iran?
Lastly, many would argue tha Iran would retaliate. So, they already are as fast as they can throughout the Middle East and North Africa. With a blockade, sanctions and no navy or air force it would be that much harder for them to export terrorism rather than the free hand they have under the Administration’s plan. For those who would argue that Russia or China would take action against us if we pursued that course of action, please think that scenario through. They would huff and puff but why would they really care that much in the end. Russia would see stronger oil prices and the diminishment of a competitor and China would have one less rival in that region of the world. Neither of them would attack the U. S. on behalf of Iran. How could we be worse off than the road we are heading down right now? Iran is evil just as Stalin was evil. You never go wrong fighting evil and always do when accommodating it. The Call to prayer might be the sweetest sound Barack ever heard but we need to heed the righteous call to arms for our Western way of life.
