The Mullahs’ Murder of Americans


Pages: 1 2

FP: Let us suppose someone like Newt Gingrich becomes President in 2012 and gets the courage to make this a central theme of our national debate. He calls you and says, “Michael, what can and should my administration do about this?” What do you tell him?

Ledeen: Support the Iranian opposition. Talk to them, ask them what they need, and then get it to them.

FP: What are the prospects, do you think, of Iranians overthrowing the tyranny that oppresses them? In other words, can a revolution against the Mullahs succeed in the near future?

Ledeen: Yes it can succeed. The overwhelming majority of Iranians want it to succeed, and it would have succeeded long since, IMHO, if the opposition had had some outside help. But no Western country has helped.

FP: Your thoughts on Obama?

Ledeen: I think of him like a typical Ivy League undergraduate, gulled by political correctness, who doesn’t understand American greatness, and instead blames us for most of the world’s problems and injustices.  He wants to cut America down to size.

FP: Looking back at your career and experiences, what are some of the key lessons you have learned that you think are crucial for an American administration to absorb and act upon?

Ledeen: There’s a lot to learn, and I’ve only learned a small part of it.  But the main thing is what Machiavelli says to leaders:  you will be judged on whether you win or lose, and everybody hates a loser.  Unfortunately we have a generation of Western leaders who prefer to be nice losers.  The other big thing is that the world looks to America for guidance; there is no escape from our role as a superpower…like it or not.

FP: Your perspective on Russia’s role vis-à-vis Iran?

Ledeen: Hah! My favorite mystery. There is no doubt that the Russians played a significant role in the creation of the Islamic Republic’s terror apparatus and intelligence services. That said, we (or at least I) don’t know nearly enough. I can’t believe that the Russians want the mullahs to have nuclear weapons; they know that the ayatollahs are constantly stirring up jihad in the Balkans. So, for example, when I hear about this computer “worm” I wonder if it’s the Russians…I think the Russians work very hard to get control over at least part of the Islamic Republic, but the Iranians do not trust them, and so there’s a kind of “balance of paranoia.” It’s a great subject. Ask Pacepa about it.

FP: Your thoughts on the Left’s behavior in our terror war in general?

Ledeen: What can I say?  Too many of them want us to lose.

FP: Are you optimistic or pessimistic about our civilization’s will and capacity to defend itself from radical Islam?

Ledeen: I’m an optimist by nature, as my father was. I cannot imagine losing to a group that is locked in the 12th century. We are more adaptive, and stronger by orders of magnitude. They will lose every major battle, and eventually they will lose standing with the umma. When Iran finally comes down, the whole world will change for the better, and we will have a much easier time of it. It’s maddening to see that our leaders don’t seem to see the war whole, and don’t agree that regime change in Tehran is the best single stroke in the war against the terror masters. As it has been from day one. Somebody said that.

FP: Michael A. Ledeen, thank you for joining Frontpage Interview.

    Islam is not a religion and mosques are not prayer halls.
    Islam is a cult and mosques are meeting halls for evil designs. Islam has no prayers …islam has just a bunch of slogans that slander the rest of the planet's people who are not muslim and never will be. The mafia cult of islam was started by don moha-mad in the heat and dust of the arab desert. Don moha-mad was an uneducated evil man who must have been really evil and loony to frighten the half assed arabs. Islam is an evil cult masquerading as a religion.
    Soon the world court judges will call it's bluff. Relax.

    "RESEARCHERS LINK SCHIZOPHRENIA AND VIOLENT IDIOTS DUE TO ISLAMIC VIELS AND BURKHAS"
    'Researchers say babies born with low vitamin D levels may have an increased risk of developing schizophrenia later in life.
    'The three-year study tested blood samples from babies in Denmark and found having low vitamin D levels doubles the risk of developing the disorder.
    'The findings could encourage pregnant women to get more sunshine or take a vitamin D supplement. {And NOT wear a burka or niqab! – dda}
    'Professor John McGrath, from the Queensland Brain Institute, says the study is further evidence of vitamin D's link to brain development.
    "Many years ago we thought it was totally implausible to prevent schizophrenia, it seemed to be such a mysterious, poorly understood group of illnesses," he said.
    "I think this new result suggests that maybe it will be possible to prevent schizophrenia."

      In MN our Somali population gets 25% severe autism in their new children. I have been to their apts, and they are dark, dirty and damp. The mother submits even to the young males. The males are completely undisciplined.

      Don't for get the dozens of shots they give at the hospitals. A hard as it is to say they are geneticly unable to do well here. They are different than the Norweigans native to here.
      Give them a glass of milk and watch what happens.

      Of coure in the US this uneducated population is the fastest growing.

      We are number one in the terrorist creation business here.

      Thanks to the politically correct.

    Now, let's think about it. Yemen. Saudi Arabia and other Gulf states. Afghanistan. The more rigidly-Muslim Muslims, everywhere; generations of women totally covered-up whenever they go outside.The likelihood that many or most of those women are Vitamin D deficient is high; and if they're Vitamin D deficient during pregnancy, then their babies' brain development may be seriously compromised.
    It should be noted that at the end of a news report on women being forced to wear hijab in Gaza University
    the following information was included:
    'Lack of Vitamin D because of veils”
    'A Jordanian study published this week asserted that 87% of women between the ages of 18 and 70 in Jordan suffer from a lack of Vitamin D as a result of insufficient sun exposure and not enough milk consumption.
    'The researchers linked this phenomenon to wearing the hijab. 'According to the findings, **92% of women who wear a hijab suffer from a lack of Vitamin D** 'This figure increases to 96%, according to the survey, when it comes to women who cover their faces as well with a niqab."

  • muslimpoxbyebye

    Put that information together with the results of the Danish study and it appears that those who wear the Muslim female slave rag, whatever form of it they wear, stand a very good chance of scrambling their babies' brains. SO THE NEXT TIME YOU SEE A WOMAN IN A BURKHA REMEMBER ISLAM IS FORCING WOMEN TO LITERALLY BREED VIOLENT IDIOTS. http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-3953628

    What is missing, a fallacy, is the fact the West kicked out the democratically elected leader of Iran, and installed our puppet The Shah, to prevent the nationalization of the oil wells.

    Iran's terrorism is wrong, and should be addressed, however, with two fronts going, this militarily would be a stupid move. Finish Iraq and Afghanistan, then deal with Iran if Israel has not already done so.

    • Rifleman

      In other words we prevented Iran from becoming another communist satellite of the soviet union. Good for us, and the world. Iran would most likely still be an ally, and perhaps even democratic by now had not jimmy carter replaced the Shah with Khomeini, who was much worse. That worked out as well for the whole region as the dp cutting off aid to South Vietnam.

      If hitting the mad mullahs back or toppling them interdicts enemy combatants and supplies on their western border in Iraq, or their eastern border in Afghanistan, we should do it.

      Most of our combat losses have been coming from terrorists trained and equipped by the mad mullahs since around halfway through the surge. One of the big factors in the shia turning from the mahdi and the mad mullahs was our proving to them the mad mullahs were also training and supplying aq and the sunnis who were attacking them. If we wanted to hit where it would materially hurt terrorists the most, we'd hit Iran.

      • aspacia

        It protect U.S. interests, and many Iranians resented this. Regardless, neither scenario worked out for our interests.

        You are correct regarding the fact that numerous U.S. casualties are caused by Iranian influence, training and funding.

      I heard he went to a church with louis Farrakhan in it.
      (That boy makes the Klan look good) And the reverend foulmouth blight wright.
      What church has Muslims in it? Yes the church of the Sham.
      And he is not black, he is an arab.
      On the upside, America now knows what ISlam is. It is not a religion, but a political
      machine. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VEXWjlgJ83E

        If you are referring to Farrakhan being Arab,his name at birth was Louis Eugene Walcott .

    Nothing will happen from our country until we throw out all the "lifetime politicians" VOTE, throw them all out. Don't be fooled by the people there now. How did we get a Marxist in the white house? Ask BOTH party's, their in it up to their asses.

  • ObamaYoMoma

    Ledeen is right that Iran has killed Americans in both Iraq and Afghanistan with impunity and that should be the main reason we oust the ruling Mullahs of Iran, because they should not be allowed to get away with killing Americans with impunity. Of course, at the same time we should also destroy Iran’s nuclear weapons program because they can never be allowed to acquire nuclear weapons.

    However, Ledeen is also one of those neocons that believe that Islam is Religion of Peace™ and that only a tiny minority of Muhammadans are radicals, which led to the US’s insane decisions to occupy Afghanistan and Iraq on false premises to democratize Muhammadans and to win their hearts and minds by lifting them up out of poverty, which is not only utterly absurd but completely impossible as well.

    Don’t get me wrong, I am all for eradicating AQ and Saddam, but occupying Islamic countries based on totally false premises is ludicrous.

  • Wesley69

    Since 1979, Iran has been a thorn in the US's side. Regime change here is necessary if the region is to have any chance at peace. Without the Mullahs, Afghanistan may calm down. In Iraq, something close to secular democracy could take. Particularly, if a secular democracy emerged from the rubble of the Islamic republic. Hamas and Hezbollah would lose major funding & weapons sources. The dynamics of the region would change. We need regime change in Washington DC if we are to see this day. The problem is we are running out of time. The mad Mullahs get the bomb, don't expect them to be rational about not using it.

    All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to remain silent.

    I know this might come to a shock to some, but all one has to do is google or enter HEZbollah/United States in any search engine and begin reading, pay attention to the sites across this United States and almost every State with the exception or Or. has a HAMAS representative office in them. Now ask yourself a question, what was that meeting between louie farrakan's nation of islam/ (NBPP) new black panthers party all about. Does the coming Oct. surprise play into this, was this a meeting of war minds? who knows, .

  • Ret. Marine

    We can be certain of one thing, they have not lost the intentions of attacking, seems every one is talking of something big to take place and lately all the talk of terrorist plans of hitting the E.U., France, Germany and the U.S. with the type of attack we witnessed a few months ago in Mumbai. Anything is possible and I quite frankly would not trust the POS calling himself the leader of the free world any further than one can toss a stone. Geezus H. Christ, there seems to be too much chatter going on lately. Keep your eyes open y'all, especially those of you in the big cities. Good luck and God Bless to all the warriors.

    What can one say about having a government that has endless
    excuses for everything it should be doing but does not do? What
    can one say about having a government that is doing what we do not
    want done and ignores us and does not even make excuses but
    continues the mantra of Change, Hope, Stupidity. I know many
    military men who can wage war and would have had our problems
    ended years ago but for political cowards in D.C. and complicit
    politicians working with leftist enemies and Islamatic fanatics.
    If we get to the November elections and last until January and have
    a new Congress that undertakes due diligence, it may be that in
    the end all of our internal enemies will have been rounded up and
    outside our borders our enemies will all be destroyed, dead, finito, time for
    a new day and new lives for Americans. The globe needs purging….William

    The war isn't in A-Stan or Iraq. The real war is in Iran. The Mahdi-ists are the head of the hydra that is Hizbollah, Hamas, and any other jihadist entity fighting against the US. Kill that head and it will adversely affect the jihad on many fronts. Ever notice that the increase in terror attacks across the globe coincided with the 1979 Mahdi-ist revolution?
    Try a little strategic thinking, Attack the Iranian hydra, then go after the Saudi one. And we'll win this war.
