Reuters has quoted a senior Israeli minister as saying that Iran is on course to develop a nuclear bomb in six months and that time has run out for negotiations to prevent this from happening.
Releasing this information is no accident. In doing so the Israelis are really telling America that Iran is very close to becoming a nuclear power and that if the Americans don’t use their military to stop them from becoming one very soon Israel will use its military to do exactly that…the use of military power being the only way to keep nuclear weapons out of Iran’s hands, negotiations, sanctions and everything else having failed miserably over the years to convince the Iranians to stop trying to develop and possess nuclear weapons and the means to deliver them.
The time to talk is over and if you don’t stop them soon we will. That’s the message the Israelis are sending to America.
Will the Americans get it and will they act on it? Not as long as Barack Hussein Obama is President they won’t, which means that sometime in the next six months we can expect Israel to attack and destroy Iran’s nuclear weapons development facilities. It will do so in the name of national survival, it will do so because it knows perfectly well that Iran will attack Israel with nuclear weapons as soon as it is able to do so in an effort to destroy the country and wipe it off the face of the earth, it will do so because it has no choice.
Why are the Israelis sending this message to the Americans now?
Because newly elected Iranian President Hassan Rouhani is seducing Obama and Obama is falling for his overtures. Prior to the seduction there was a very, very small chance that the United States would use its military to keep Iran from becoming a nuclear power because a nuclear Iran is a clear and present danger to the United States itself, never mind Israel. Thanks to Rouhani’s seduction and Obama’s willingness to be seduced there is no chance of that happening now.
Rouhani has expressed a desire to participate in more negotiations.
Disregarding history, religion, world events and Iran’s preeminent role in the bloodshed, destruction and death in the Middle East and beyond (including in the United States), the White House has responded by saying that the U.S. is willing to participate in talks “on the basis of mutual respect” if Iran is willing to demonstrate that its nuclear program is for civilian purposes only.
First of all, Iran doesn’t respect America. It hates America and is disgusted by everything America stands for and has always stood for…it does so on religious grounds and wants to destroy America and turn it into an Islamic country governed by Islamic law, also on religious grounds. America is the Great Satan after all. Israel, the Little Satan, is first on Iran’s hit list because it is the world’s only Jewish country and is located in the Middle East to boot but the United States is definitely second.
Second of all, the United States should not respect Iran. Everything the country stands for and has always stood for, everything it has done and continues to do since the theocrats took over in 1979, is anathema to the U.S. Respecting Iran means respecting Islam and how it manifests itself in the world, means respecting an anti-American, anti-Semitic, anti-Christian, anti-Everything that isn’t Islamic country that has been and is directly responsible for destruction, bloodshed and death on an unimaginable scale, much of it American. Iran doesn’t deserve respect and the United States of all countries should not offer to respect it.
Third, Iran demonstrated a long time ago that its nuclear program has nothing to do with civilian purposes and that it is in place for one reason and one reason only…to enable Iran to possess its very own nuclear weapons…to give Iran a nuclear weapons capability of its very own. That is why Iran keeps on enriching uranium to weapons grade and keeps on developing missiles specifically designed to carry nuclear weapons, neither of which has any civilian application at all.
Fourth, Rouhani has demonstrated time and time again that he simply cannot be trusted. He has even bragged that he deceived the United States and the West in the past by holding talks while Iran was continuing to develop it nuclear weapons program. In any case, he doesn’t have the authority to stop it anyway and is obviously buying time and stringing Obama along as he has in the past.
Fifth, all this seduction is nothing more than history repeating itself. This is not the first time that a newly elected President of Iran has made overtures to the United States in order to buy time, string the U.S. along and keep its nuclear weapons development program humming along. Dangling hope is a favorite ploy of the Iranians, a ploy which they have used very successfully in the past and which they are trying to use again now. They have put a friendly face on to sucker Obama into thinking that negotiations might be fruitful, but underneath that friendly face lies a steely resolve to develop and possess nuclear weapons…that friendly face is nothing more than a ploy because they have no intention of stopping or slowing down their efforts, especially since they are now on the brink of success.
Six months. That’s the Israelis red line and you can be sure that they won’t allow Iran to cross it.
They can’t afford to be delusional, can’t afford to be seduced.
Not if they want to survive and not if they want their country to survive.
They’ll act on their own alright.
They have to.
And when they do you can blame Obama because he could have brought Iran’s nuclear weapons development program to a screeching halt a long time ago and chose not to.
Good on Israel, bad on Obama.
Barack Hussein Obama.
