Iran declared war on the United States right when the Ayatollah Khomeini took power after deposing the Shaw of Iran. This happened the day, during the Carter Presidency, when Iranians took control of the US Embassy, capturing our diplomats and holding them hostage for more than 400 days until the day Ronald Reagan was sworn in as President in 1980. Iranians were behind the explosions that killed several hundred of our Soldiers both in Lebanon and in Saudi Arabia. Finally, we know now that between 2003 and 2011, Iranian explosives were used to kill about 200 American Soldiers in Iraq and further wounded about 861. In addition, Iranian sponsored Terrorism has killed more than 500 US Soldiers in Iraq and other locations.
It is pretty odd that since Iran has declared war on the United States that instead of recognizing the obvious result that Presidents of the United States going all the way back to Carter, Reagan, Clinton, Bush 1, Bush 2 and Obama have not asked for a formal declaration of war against Iran. Instead, Socialist President Pinocchio Obama and his Secretary of State Weakling John Kerry have negotiated a deal with Iran that will give them a path to having nuclear weapons and the missiles to deliver them. There is something very wrong with this picture.
Iran is still the biggest state sponsor of Terrorism in the world, killing Americans and our allies in Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Egypt and other countries. Iranian leaders regularly speak of destroying Israel. What we are seeing in the Middle East and beyond is the 1930's all over again, only this time we are dealing with Islamic Sunni and in Iran's case Shia Fascists. Iranians leaders say daily what their intent is in the Middle East. Why aren't we listening to their words and seeing their actions. Now that Iran is in Syria and Iraq, it is clear that they seek hegemony over the entire Middle East including destroying Israel.
Though we are seeing a battle between Sunni Islamic Fascists and Iranian Shia Fascists, for dominance in the Middle East, in either case we are dealing with Fascist Evil just as bad as what we saw during World War II with Adolf Hitler. It is time for the countries that value Freedom to wake up to this threat. Certainly, this will not happen as long as naive and incompetent Obama is President; but hopefully the next President will better understand the threat we face and deal with an Iran that is clearly an enemy to the United States and our Allies.
