Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyhu gave a brilliant speech before Congress laying out the threat from Iran and offering some solutions. Our Socialist Emperor Pinocchio Obama forbade anyone from his Administration from attending the speech. In addition, about 50 Socialist members of Congress also boycotted the speech. Of course, they were all watching on TV as was the American people.
The Mullahs in Iran that took power during the 1970's declared war on the United States and Israel back then. It began with taking over the US Embassy in Iran and holding the Americans working at the Embassy hostage for more than 400 days literally until Ronald Reagan was sworn in as President. After winning election in 1980, but before his inauguration, Reagan signaled that he would order our military to invade Iran if the hostages were not released and as such the hostages were released as soon as Reagan took the oath of office. The Mullahs are crazy but they are not stupid. They knew that Reagan was not Jimmy Carter.
However, Iran as the single biggest sponsor of Terrorism in the world funded the bombing and murder of our marine barracks in Lebanon and the bombings of other American facilities around the world that killed thousands of Americans. We know now that Iran provided funds to Al Queda and Osama Bin Laden responsible for 9/11. And, of course Iran funds Hamas and Hezbollah, the Terrorist groups that are at war with Israel. Recently, Iran staged a naval exercise attacking a mock US carrier in the Persian Gulf. This is the country, at war with the United States and Israel, that Obama is in negotiations with to end their Nuclear Program without any pre conditions.
The reported Obama/Kerry deal on the table would allow Iran to keep its nuclear technology and even continue to research even greater capabilities. In addition, apparently, there is no mention of the inter continental ballistic missiles Iran is developing to deliver nuclear warheads to destroy Israel, their avowed enemy and one day even attack the United States and Western Europe. What is worse, the deal expires in ten years, which means ten years from now, if not sooner since Iran can't be trusted, Iran will have nuclear weapons.
If this deal comes to be, it will lead to a nuclear arms race in the Middle East and a more dangerous world. Israel's Prime Minister has it exactly right. Unless Iran is required to actually dismantle their nuclear technology, stop building the missiles to deliver nuclear warheads, stop threatening Israel and stop funding the Terrorism that is resulting in the deaths of thousands of innocent people around the world each year, there can be no peace in the Middle East or the world.
Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry are the Neville Chamberlain's of our time, the British Prime Minister who appeased Adolf Hitler allowing him to take over a big piece of Czechoslovakia declaring "Peace In Our Time". That infamous appeasement resulted in the deaths of 60 million people including 6 million Jews during World War II. Obama and Kerry apparently have not learned the lessons of history as they are playing the same appeasement game with Iran. Never Again, Never Again.
