Will the Dems Get the Blame for Iranian Nukes?By James Lewis
If there is any justice in the world, the Democrats should be blamed forever and ever for letting the nuclear genie out of the bottle after sixty years of the nuclear age. If there is any justice, they should go out of business as a political party, just like the Whigs and the Wobblies. Political parties don't last forever. This one doesn't deserve to.
Today, Iran has enough enriched uranium for two nuclear bombs. Even the New York Times admits it, the U.N. admits it, and Leo Panetta just did it again on behalf of the CIA.
That's presumably a big surprise to Obama, the New York Times, the U.N., and the CIA. What suddenly happened, folks? This must be totally unexpected to the left.
Because just before the last election, we saw a National Intelligence Estimate claiming that the Iranians stopped doing all that nuclear stuff back in 2003. Nobody believed it except the Democrats and their mind-numbed suckers -- but that was enough to give them their historic majority to control the presidency and Congress. That's the Biggest Lie that gave us ObamaCare and any number of disasters to come under these jokers.
Guess what folks: We have a historic first! But this one is even bigger than a president of a different color. This is a real martyrdom regime with nukes. Even the Obama administration quietly says it's true. They are hoping that American voters have total amnesia and will never go ballistic over the new Evil Empire the left has brought into being. But if you don't go ballistic, though, the United States will, as soon as Iranian missiles get our range. But we're OK for several years at least.
It's the Democrats who put Ayatollah Khomeini into power three decades ago. (Thanks, Jimmy!) Khomeini's Islamic fascism was the first medieval counterrevolution in a modern Muslim country. Before the Muslim fascists took over Iran, that country thrived, with its huge, talented and educated population. Then Ol' Jimmy allowed Khomeini to take over because of what the CIA did to Mossadegh in 1953. Funny thing, but that was 1979, twenty-six years after Mossadegh. Still, Jimmy thought we owed 'em one counterrevolution for sure. Naturally, a million people died soon afterwards in the Iraq-Iran war. Jimmy is still in denial. None of the Democrats know a thing about it.
Khomeiniac Iran showed the Muslim world how to really flip back to medieval terror. Yes, Saudi Arabia is bad, but it's not planning to nuke its neighbors, as far as I know. Even nuclear Pakistan isn't that self-destructive, although its own fascisti are always trying to take over. But don't worry -- now that Turkey is flipping back to the Ottoman Empire, others will want to join the march back to the 7th-century Arabian desert.
Iran's suicide ideology has long been dismissed and denied by the international left. Still, the Khomeiniac masses keep chanting, "Death to Israel! Death to America!" Jimmy Carter's "saint" Khomeini was a revolutionary, all right, but he was a medieval throwback revolutionary. It was all Hope and Change to him. If you Hope to go back to the 7th century, the Change is easy to do.
Since the counterrevolution in Iran, Islamic fascism has taken hold in the Gaza strip and Lebanon (with Hezb'allah), has a beachhead in Turkey, and it's trying very hard in slightly more moderate countries like Egypt, Saudi Arabia, the Gulf States, Afghanistan, you name it. That's why 9/11 happened -- because a reactionary Muslim movement took hold in the Sunni countries. Iran is just a different flavor of the same throwback ideology.
Guess what Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn were doing in Egypt just before the Gaza flotilla crisis. Yes, they were trying to whip up the Islamic fascists in the Muslim Brotherhood (Egyptian branch) to break the Gaza blockade that Egypt is keeping up for fear of being attacked by Hamas. Egypt isn't doing Israel any favors. They need that arms blockade for their own survival because they have their own Hamas troubles.
This is the new left-fascist alliance, and it's going on all over the world, courtesy of our friends on the left. Reactionary revolution is in, and if you don't like it, we'll cut your throat.
Why do they do that? Why does Obama's personal spiritual teacher, Rev. Jeremiah Wright, go all-out in favor of Muslim reactionaries who kill and enslave Africans in the Sudan and in the Congo, who oppress women, children, gays, Jews, Christians, Bahaiis, Sufis, Hindus, atheists, Sikhs, and yes, especially Marxists and liberals in their own countries? Because don't tell Ahmadinejad you're a Marxist in Tehran. If you do, you won't be home tomorrow.
So why does international the left love Muslim throwbacks? The reason is simple. They have a common enemy.
That would be us. The modern world. A government of laws, electoral democracy, free markets, free speech, women's rights, gay rights, religious freedom, all the basics of the U.S. Constitution. Both the left and the new fascists hate the U.S. Constitution, the greatest political document of the Western Enlightenment. That's what "medieval reactionary" means. They want to erase not just the 21st century, but also 1776 and all that. When these people want to go back, they really want to go way back.
So the Democrats put Khomeini into power because, as Carter's U.N. Representative Andrew Young said so idealistically, "We thought he was some kind of a saint." Yes.
Jimmy Carter and Zbig Brzezinki have noisily rationalized that immense historic blunder for the last three decades. They were utterly, dangerously wrong then, and they still are just as wrong today. During the Gaza flotilla blowup, Jimmy Carter was on Al Jazeerah accusing Israel of being evil while exonerating the fascist suicide team on the Mavi Marmara. They never, ever learn.
Now we see Iran with enough stuff to blow up Tel Aviv twice -- or New York City, for that matter. And Jimmy and Zbig are still in noisy denial. Just watch 'em on TV, if you can stand it.
Iran has been talking open genocide against Israel and America for thirty years. Now they have the means to do it in fifteen minutes, once the missiles get the range. Israel is already within range, and so are all the Arab countries that have been openly threatened by the Tehran regime for thirty years. Greece and Turkey are within Tehran's missile range, and soon it will be Russia and the rest of Europe.
You can thank Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton, Hillary, and yes, Barack Hussein Obama for all that.
Obama has kowtowed to the bad guys wherever he could find them. Now we see the outcome. Cause, effect. It's so simple that even this administration might get it.
But will the Democrats get the blame? Will the New York Times ever blame the left for anything?
Iran's nuclear bombs are the total and complete responsibility of the left, because George W. Bush sure wouldn't have let it get to this point. Why do you think Bush-Cheney invaded Iraq? Many strategic reasons, but above all this one: Iraq has Iran next door. Control Iraq, and Iran should (if it were rational) want to back off on nukes.
The Bushes would never have let things get this far. Nor would any other Republican president in history, going back to Abraham Lincoln. The GOP may be the Stupid Party, but they are also the Party of Common Sense. They don't live in fantasy land like Obama's voters.
Now we can replay history and see what might have happened if Imperial Japan and the Third Reich had gotten atom bombs before America did. The left always wants to know what would happen if Truman hadn't dropped those bombs, right? All the lefties are always telling us how evil Truman was.
Now we'll see how history would have played out if the bad guys got there first. Don't doubt for a moment that these are real bad guys, easily on par with Hitler, Tojo, Stalin, Pol Pot, and Mao. Add Ahmadinejad to that crowd, and you can't tell the difference. All of those other evil genies were also protected by the Western left when it suited their playbook.
So the political question is: Will the Democrats, who deliberately sabotaged American foreign policy for the eight years of the Bush 43 presidency, now bow deeply to the world to apologize for unleashing real evil again?
Pretty soon Obama will have something real to apologize for. The wheel of history grinds slowly, but it grinds grandiose pretensions into tiny dust particles every single time.
It's in his lap now. Let's see if the Democrats can get us out of the disaster they have knowingly allowed to happen. Soon enough, there will be consequences.
There is genuine, adult responsibility for their misfeasance and malfeasance, their never-ending deception, malevolence, and their hugely destructive policies. They are old enough to take responsibility for the results.
It's high time we remind them about that.
