Why do certain people in Washington seem to be jumping for joy because of the latest news out of the Iran nuclear treaty talks? And why do I feel like somehow I have fallen asleep to wake up in 1938?
Maybe our friends in Washington are the ones who need to wake up…
I have to admit that probably like the rest of you I have not really been following the day-to-day of this Iran Nuclear Deal story. That’s because they have been working on this Nuclear Deal since 2003. That’s right, somehow people have been meeting and hammering out details on this for over ten years. When does a smart person stand up and say… “Maybe the Iranians are stalling while they perfect their version of an atomic bomb with training wheels.”
A nuclear bomb is a nuclear bomb no matter how you spin the language!
The latest headline says that the best this Nuclear Deal can be expect to do is extend Iran’s attainment of nuclear bomb making capability from two or three months to about a year. Okay so do the math… This deal was announced on April 2nd (it should have been April 1) and they are saying the new deadline is June to work out the details. That’s oddly two or three months away!
What do you think those busy little Iranian Nuclear Bomb makers will be doing over the next two or three months? They won’t be taking a vacation at Club Med!
And lets be clear here on who we are dealing with when we sit down to the negotiating table with these Iranians… They are the same people who are funneling arms and soldiers to heat up the action in Iraq. That’s the place where we spend countless American lives and bazillians of dollars to try and get on the track to something resembling a free society. And… According to our very own state department (that’s the little ice cream shop John Kerry runs) the Iranians have been sponsoring terrorism all over the world for many years.
If they really just need nuclear material for power generation and medical needs as they say then it is less expensive to just buy what they need than to set up entire factories and supply chains to manufacture it. If they really need the nuclear bomb material for peaceful reasons then why are they also developing long range missiles. To deliver electricity and medical supplies?
No… I think the Iranians have other plans for this nuclear material and they involve obliterating Israel as they have said many times. And after that who do you think is next on the Iranian Nuclear Bomb hit parade? Not the French, Polish, Germans, Italians, Russians, or Chinese who trade with Iran and have been pushing Kerry for a deal so they can continue selling them stuff.
We are the ones in the Iranians cross hairs. I sure the Supreme Leader of Iran has a live stream of New York Time Square on his iPhone so he can keep tabs on what’s cooking there.
Unless our guys in Washington wake up and realize the Iranians are stalling (after all it has been over ten years now) and do the tough work of shutting down their nuclear ambitions either Israel will send a few bombers to Iran and turn their research facilities into a pile of steaming ruble or Iran is going to unleash a new brand of Nuclear war like the world has never seen. Neither is a pretty picture.
Which brings me to the word of the day… Appeasement.
This is the only reason I can think of that our guys in Washington have let this Iran Nuclear Deal charade go on for so long. When Obama says things like this Iran deal is “Our Best Bet” it worries me. How can you “Bet” with the lives of so many millions of innocent people? Can they revoke a Nobel Peace Prize?
This my friends is called Appeasement.
When you try to deal with people who have a clear agenda that includes your obliteration bad things happen. All you have to do is look at how the 1938 British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain’s Appeasement of Adolf Hitler worked out.
On September 30, 1938 Chaimberlain was shaking hands with Hitler after they made a deal then on September 7, 1940, less than twenty-four months later Hitler started the Blitz on London and bombed that city for fifty-seven consecutive days.
That’s how Appeasement works out.
The really scary part is that most Americans are comfortable thinking that the folks in Washington will take care of us. Those Politicians are the smart ones tasked with the job of keeping the world safe from Iran’s nuclear ambitions. It’s been over ten years! The Iranians mere months away from producing bomb material.
But remember all these guys in Washington have magic keys to comfortable well-stocked bunkers where they can lay low and watch House Of Cards and Scandal reruns while the nuclear dust clears. All we have are four dollar flimsy single-use umbrellas and Pop-tarts.
