“I RAN”

Iran just went nuclear. How did we let this happen?

Here is an excerpt from an excellent article, “Just War Theory” vs. American Self-Defense, in which Yaron Brook and Alex Epstein explain the role of Just War Theory in America’s appeasement of Iran and its Islamic allies:

In 1979, a new Iranian regime founded on Islamic principles held fifty-two Americans hostage for four hundred and forty-four days, while America helplessly begged for their return and Iranian leaders had a world stage to proclaim their superiority to the nation they call the ‘Great Satan.’ Not one American died during the hostage-taking—but, with America on her knees, the burgeoning anti-American movement achieved a crucial victory.

What would Just War Theory say about whether this situation warranted a military response? Did it rise to the level of a direct attack sufficient to place us at the point of ‘last resort’ with Iran and other nations that sponsor Islamic terrorism? Not according to Jimmy Carter. What about after two hundred and forty-three marines were killed in Lebanon in 1983? Not according to Ronald Reagan. Or after Khomeini’s fatwa offered terrorists a bounty to destroy writer Salman Rushdie and his American publisher for expressing an ‘un-Islamic’ viewpoint in 1989? Not according to George Bush, Sr. Or after the first World Trade Center bombing in 1993? Not according to Bill Clinton. The pattern is telling.

    Some day Israel will have no choice but to attack Iran,
    maybe America will do it after the leftists are out of the
    White House. Iran is playing with fire and will create a
    situation that must be dealt with, sooner or later and
    it seems waiting only makes the situation worse. I
    wonder what the Israeli's are thinking, if they bomb
    the reactor the radiation will go all over=Iran like at
    Chernobyl and the Iranians get what they get, to bad
    but it is their problem, insanity has it's drawbacks………..William

    It won’t be too long before the world will have a nuclear-armed Iran that can simply rattle its sabers anytime it wants and world oil prices will skyrocket in response. It will simply be able to boost its coffers at will and destroy the economies of the West at the same time, without having to even uses its nuclear weapons.

    By the way, I recommend reading the referenced article. It is magnificent.

    This all started long before Iran had nuclear capability. I recall, in 1979, when Iran invaded the United States of America. Now, I really can't think of a more overt act of war, then invading another country. Regardless, of their reasons, the invasion was a fact. At the time, I thoroughly expected Iran to be a cinder in a few hours. I certainly should have known better. Since that time, that act of war, has not been responded to by any administration. No wonder they have been increasingly emboldened. Invade another country, and they don't respond? They rightly believe they can get away with anything they wish.

    According to a radiation safety expert familiar with Chernobyl, and a personal acquaintance, the dispersion of radiation would not be extensive and would be of very short half-life. NOT like Chernobyl. It is the Iranian mullocracy who placed the nuclear sites in populated areas.

    I too recommend this article. It is well-developed regarding the ideas of a Just War, Realistic War, and the imperative of a War for individual freedoms.

    Basically, it argues for crushing the enemy to prevent further violence. What is needed further analysis was WWI, the fact we left Germany standing, which probably was a major factor leading to WWII and the Allied appeasement of Hitler. It is important to understand, Hitler did analyze the educational system prevalent after WWII and its passive tendencies. A strong correlation with Western education exists today, and Islamists know this. Arafat stated that Islam will defeat the West using its liberal laws and Islamic demographics.

    Network Marketing is a funny industry that's simultaneously full of almost religious network marketing training dogma, but at the same time – it's got some of the most brilliant marketing tactics in the entire world of business. When you're first getting started out in this industry, you could luck out and have a sponsor that knows how to train you in modern day tactics, or you could be sponsored by someone that has never created any kind of real wealth in their entire life.

    Many people who begin a network marketing business forget the importance of the word 'network'. The path to success in this business model is to build a sales organisation and you receive commissions for referring people to the business opportunity. There are different terms for this role but the one that is widely understood is Sponsor. You are sponsoring people into the business opportunity.

    Most network marketers quit, except for the leaders, who start looking for additional training and education. Hungry for success, members of the latter group end up easy prey for the current network marketing training scams.

    Unfortunately, most MLM companies' network marketing training programs consist of barely motivational meetings on conference calls. Most mlm companies fail to teach their distributors the basics of marketing and communications skills. This is considered one of the major reasons for the high rate of failure in multi-level marketing programs.

    There are many things to take into consideration when trying to find out what is the best network marketing company. While some people may consider their company the best because they have a great pay plan, others might consider theirs the best because their company made the most money last year. Some people might say they have the best MLM company because they have the tastiest products, while others will say that their company is the best, simple because they were told to say that and they are really looking for a mlm business opportunities

    lastly The best network marketing company for you is one that has several characteristics. Having said that not all companies in the network marketing industry can be the best. That doesn't mean the rest are bad. It just means that to be the best for you a network marketing company must have the 4 elements Which I reveal to you.
