Washington’s Support of Iran’s Mass Murders

Pages: 1 2

As the present writer disclosed in an earlier article, Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta revealed a strange duplicity during a CBS News interview on January 29th. When asked about the situation with Iran, Secretary Panetta responded with a surprising number of “ifs,” as though to give the impression that there may in fact be some doubt about the threat from Iran, that Iran may not be pursuing military nuclear capacity, and that there may as yet be no actionable intelligence to indicate that Iran intends to pursue a nuclear option.  These “ifs” are very strange since Secretary Panetta must be aware of the public information about the Iranian pursuit of WMD capacity, the Iranian proxies and allies in South America that support Iran’s objectives, and Iran’s commitment to use its nuclear weaponry to destroy Israel and intimidate the West.1

Amazingly, President Obama demonstrated an even more overt duplicity at an interview during the Super Bowl with Matt Lauer.  As ABC news reported, when Lauer questioned him over suggestions that Iran could retaliate to an American or Israeli attack by striking inside the United States, the president replied:   “We don’t see any evidence that they have those intentions or capabilities right now.”  No evidence that Iran has bellicose intentions or capabilities toward the United States?  That response is contrary to very well-known facts, facts of which the president must be aware.

Iran is sending long-range missiles for deployment in Venezuela; Hezbollah is in Mexico, Venezuela and Brazil where it works with narcotraficants and gun runners; there is strong evidence that the Iranian secret service (the Pasdaran) is working with Hezbollah in South America;  there is strong evidence for active Hezbollah sleeper cells in the USA; Iran’s work on missiles that could reach the USA from Lebanon was progressing until clandestine sabotage (believed by some to have been perpetrated by Israel) destroyed the entire manufacturing plant; in the fall of 2011, American security forces prevented the assassination of a Saudi diplomat on American soil, a plot which James R. Clapper, America’s top intelligence official, identified as an Iranian attack that would have killed about 150 innocent bystanders and that may harbinger more of such attacks in the future; FBI Director Robert Mueller and CIA Director David Petraeus testified at a Senate Intelligence hearing on “World Wide Threats” on January 31, informing the committee that Iran has the capabilities to build nuclear weapons whenever it wants to; the L.A. Times reported that U.S. intelligence agencies briefed that same Senate panel about Iranian leaders’ willingness to launch attacks against American targets and support bombings on American soil; and a recent Wall Street Journal article validates the threat of nuclear war posed by the current Iranian regime.  Can the commander-in-chief of the world’s strongest army not know about this threat?

From its inception, the Islamic Republic has terrorized its citizens, killed American soldiers, supported terrorist groups, and repeatedly undermined the stability of our Arab allies.

During the Carter administration Iran declared war on the USA. To be exact, it was on November 4, 1972, when a group of Iranian students forcibly overran the US Embassy in Tehran and took hostage 52 Americans for 444 days.  These students acted in the name of the newly declared “Islamic Republic of Iran;” and the Ayatollah Khomeini, who only a few months earlier ousted the Shah and announced the renewal of the “Islamic Revolution,” did nothing to stop them.  An attack on a country’s embassy is, in international law, an act of war against that embassy’s country.  The Ayatollah, who led the Iranian Islamic Revolution, perceived himself an avenger of the humiliations that the West had inflicted on Islam.

And in case there was any doubt as to Iran’s intentions, Iran oversaw Hezbollah’s attack on October 23, 1983 on the U.S. Marines barracks in Beirut, where a suicide bomber drove a truck loaded with 12,000 pounds of explosives into the barracks, killing 241 American soldiers, the single most lethal death toll on US Marines since Iwo Jima, and the single deadliest attack against Americans prior to 9/11.

During the decades after the “Islamic Revolution” Iran became a source of terrorism world-wide, with America and Israel its main targets.2  In 1984 the US Government designated Iran as a state sponsor of terrorism.

Facts newly revealed in a federal district court in Manhattan late last year indicate that Iran, Hezbollah and el-Qaeda formed a global terror alliance in the early 1990s, by means of which Iran became a major supporter of global terror, and materially supported el-Qaeda in its 9/11/2001 attacks.

Iran is, and has been for more than 30 years, one of America’s most dangerous enemies. But Obama acts as though his job is to protect Iranian interests. Several Congresspersons have revealed that Obama had been secretly lobbying them in December to reduce the severity of the sanctions proposed by Congress against Iran; and the Iranian press has published the content of a secret letter from Obama to the Iranian government in which he apologizes to them for the severity of the sanctions and recognizes their right to nuclear capabilities.  And he does all of this secretly, while bloviating about how tough he is going to be on Iran, as he did in his State of the Union message.

      David Duke has a problem with the word "terrorism." What were the firebombings (terror bombings) of German cities by the Allies if not terrorism in return for Nazi terror and atrocities? What were the nuclear bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki? Iran is a preeminent state sponsor of international terrorism. Duke says Iran does not commit terrorists attacks. Clearly this is wrong. Iran has been killing our soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan with sophisticated improvised explosive devices. Iran finances and arms murderous terror proxies, Hezbollah and Hamas. How can he say Iran does not commit terrorist acts? Isn't David Duke a Holocaust denier? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m1IMqukmPAw&fe

        Actually, I hate to be on the same side as that racist and bigot David Duke, but terrorism in the Islamic world is blasphemous because it is un-Islamic and therefore a capital offense. Instead, Muslims fight jihad and jihad is holy fighting in the cause of Allah against non-Muslim unbelievers to make Islam supreme and in stark contrast to terrorism involves both violent means, such as the 9/11 violent jihad attacks, and non-violent means, such as mass Muslim immigration to the West for the purpose of stealth demographic conquest. However, per the dictates of PC multiculturalism, jihad today always gets conflated with being terrorism, which is always only violent, and as a result covert non-violent jihad, such as mass Muslim immigration to the West for the purpose of stealth demographic conquest, occurs throughout the West today totally uncontested and unopposed. For more, see my post below.

          If you hate to be on the same side as the racist / anti-Semitic David Duke, why then do you place yourself on the same side as the racist / anti-Semitic David Duke?

          "Against them make ready your strength to the utmost of your power, including steeds of war, to strike terror into (the hearts of) the enemies, of Allah and your enemies, and others besides, whom ye may not know, but whom Allah doth know. Whatever ye shall spend in the cause of Allah, shall be repaid unto you, and ye shall not be treated unjustly." Qur'an 8:60

          • WildJew

            "However, in Islam terrorism is blasphemous…."

            You seem to be an apologist for Islam.

          • ObamaYoMoma

            And you are blinded by PC multiculturalism, which irrefutably demonstrates that you are an exponentially far greater apologist for Islam than I.

            Indeed, Muslims always readily denounce terrorism, since terrorism and jihad are two very distinct and mutually exclusive things altogether. However, I have never heard a Muslim denounce jihad though.

          • WildJew

            Muslims always readily denouce terrorism. Ever heard of Taqiyyah?

    • UCSPanther

      Epic fail here. You know you are a loser when you use David Duke, a former Klanner turned race hustler (who, like Al Sharpton, makes his living off stirring up racial tensions) as a source.

      I remember reading the only job Duke could get where he could use his skill in exploiting racial tensions (His only marketable skill at this point) was at a two-bit university in Ukraine that is known for its antisemitism-based pseudo-academic views.

    • ObamaYoMoma

      Dude…if you believe any of that garbage spewed by a well known and famous career racist, bigot, and Holocaust denier, then you are obviously a simpleton and a mentally incompetent unhinged loon. Sorry, but there is no other way to put it. Indeed, in order to get your ignorance's exploited to hilt that way, you'd have to be a mentally deficient simpleton. By the way, “The Protocols of the Elders of Zion” was a fraudulent antisemitic text and proven to be a forgery composed by obsessed anti-Semitic Jew hating bigots like you and David Duke.

  • WildJew

    Over all this is a good piece, full of needed reminders and detail. A couple of corrections I think are in order; one minor, the other major.

    David Meir-Levi wrote: "During the Carter administration Iran declared war on the USA. To be exact, it was on November 4, 1972….."

    I believe it was November 4, 1979.

    Meir-Levi: "Does our president think that pandering and apologizing advances our national interests or improves our ability to diffuse the single most immediate threat to our national security?"

    I realize Obama is "the" president. Obama is NOT my president. Please do not say "my" or "our" president unless this dangerous man is indeed your president.

    • Asher

      People everywhere are sick of his lies and deception. If Obama thinks we will take this lying down, he has another thing coming!

  • pstmeoff

    What a well researched article. I wish that everyone would read it with understanding that there is truly something fishy with this administration! God help us all!

  • Gamaliel

    Has anyone noticed how Leon Panetta spoke against a military strike against Iran saying that we probably couldn't get all their nuclear factories and at most we could just delay them and how later he made statements how America will not allow Iran to get the bomb? If we can't stop Iran from getting the bomb than why all of a sudden did he start making statements that we will? The answer is that he wants Israel to believe that the United States won't let Iran get the bomb. Why? because if Israel believes that the U.S. will not prevent this from happening Israel will try and prevent it and if that happens Iran will attack the U.S. and if that happens Obama's image as the president who got us out of foreign wars will become the president who's weakness brought war and closed off the straits of Hormuz

    • mrbean

      Leon Pannetta is a former Clintonista hack and an Obama's "step-and-fetch" white boy as inept Secretary of Defense (doesn't even know hoe many wars are going on).

  • Mike

    I have a solution. Reduce Iran to rubble. Blow it up. Wipe Iran off the face of the earth. As a matter of fact, wipe every Islamic nation off the face of this earth. Then we will have established true world peace.

  • KKKK

    "iran has bellocise and dangerous designs aganist AMERICA." they have since they took our embassy illegally back in 1979. the current leaders are planngn to send ships into our waters. they are putting long-range missles in Venezuela. they backed a folied plot on OUR SOIL last october. they regualry hold "WORLD WITHOUT AMERICA" conferences./ and they have threatned to wipe us out. so why can osama-obama not see this?

  • No Dhimmi tool

    And then there's the deranged asshat Sean Stone, converting to Shiite Islam and supporting this heinous regime.

    SHAME ON HIM. Boycott Oliver Stone movies – and that's coming from a liberal who used to support Stone.

  • 11bravo

    Supporting mass muderers really?? Dude bring some charges or drop the hyperbole aye!!
    We all want this clown out of office but the headline screams "unhinged right winger". It does our side no good to get too out of hand with accusations, suppositions, and innuendo that is not actionable. Stick to the stuff that is demonstrable and make a rational fact based arguement.
    Bush did the same thing just by not bombing iran, he enabled the murderers.

  • mrbean

    The Council on Foreign Relations is advocates " containment". They said in a statement: "A military strike intended to destroy Iran’s nuclear program, if managed carefully, could spare the region and the world a very real threat and dramatically improve the long-term national security of the United States." Stupid is as stupid does.
    This fear-the-weapon-not-the-killer mentality refuses to understand the threat posed by Iran right now. This view holds that only the concrete facts about Iran's arsenal have any practical significance, while its abstract, ideological goals and character can be disregarded with impunity. But whether Iran uses one nuke, or attacks with more conventional weapons, its victims are still dead. Our leaders' narrow concern with Iran's nuclear capability as the problem cannot make the regime's longstanding hostility to America and Israel go away. Americans and Jews should face the real character and conduct of the Iranian regime, and work to change it before it is too late. Then the only solution is the anhilation of Iran – Carthage style.

  • Ghostwriter

    President Obama seems to believe that if we talk to these people,they might see things our way. Sadly,that isn't going to work. These people are Islamic fanatics bent on destroying everything to get what they want. No amount of talk will ever convince them to change course.

  • Flowerknife_us

    Fundimental change=changing sides. Is there really any evidence to say otherwise?

    A life time waiting for the people of Iran to rise up and when they do Obama turned his head away.

    That alone should tell you all you need to know.

  • Asher

    In Obama's book, Audacity of Hope on page 261 he says: In the wake of 9/11, my meetings with Arab and Pakistani Americans, for example, have a more urgent quality, for the stories of detentions and FBI questioning and hard stares from neighbors have shaken their sense of security and belonging. They have been reminded that the history of iimmigration in this country has a dark underbelly; they need specific assurances that their citizenship really means something, that America has learned the right lessons from the Japanese Internments from World War II, and that (I will stand with them should the political winds shift in an Ugly Direction.)

    Well he certainly kept his promise didn't he!

  • PAthena

    (1) President Obama never saw a jihadist Mohammedan he didn't like.
    (2) The self-appointed language police try to delete "man" from English. But "man" is old word, from an Indo-European word meaning "thinking being", cognate with "mind" and "mathematics." In English it serves to mean "homo sapiens," (as in "man is a rational animal"), as an ending (as in "woman"), as also as an adult male member of the human species. Those serving in Congress are "Congressmen."

  • Flowerknife_us

    No offense here but you have a lot less going for you than the president does. Yet-your farther ahead of the curve than the president or his minions will say. The Press sure has clammed right up about the GLOBAL WARMING going on in the middle east. You expect them to admit they were wrong? Or lied? Flip a coin. Hope and pray it lands on its edge.
