The Obamayyad of Barry HusseinBy James Lewis
Jimmy Carter and his National Security Advisor, Zbig Brzezinski, are personally responsible for the Islamic radicalization of the Middle East -- by pulling the Persian rug out from our loyal ally, the Shah of Iran, and letting mass-murdering thug Ayatollah Khomeini take over a country of 70 million people. Khomeini's Iran was the first big Islamofascist coup d'état, which made the Turks feel nostalgic for the good old days when the Ottomans creatively murdered everybody in sight, including women, slaves, Christians in Bulgaria, Jews on general principle, and Shiite Muslims for heresy. It was the Ottomans who settled their succession struggles by ritually strangling the male relatives of any new Sultan. The ritual bowstring was the only answer to endless palace rebellions and civil wars if the brothers and cousins were allowed to live.
Today, after seventy years of modernization, Turkey is once again run by a throwback branch of radical Islam. They've already carried out mass purges of the secular military and police, and they sponsored last year's agitprop suicide operation against Israel. Watch for another Mavi Marmara stunt later this month.
Well, Khomeini was the model for Wahhabis, Salafis, and Moo Bros to seize their opportunities. That's what's happening now from Tunisia to Yemen. The "Arab Spring" is really the Arab Leap to the Dark Ages.
Actions have consequences. In a dangerous world, fantasy-driven actions can have disastrous consequences. If you elect a know-nothing to the most powerful office in the world, you have to live -- and maybe die -- by the results.
Iran now has enough enriched uranium to make four nukes, which only need more purification to be ready for war. They can disperse the materials in a hundred mountain caves. The moment Iran goes nuclear, so will the Saudis, the Egyptians, the Syrians, and the Turks. You can sell those brand-new bombs as an erectile aid to Hugo Chavez and the Castro brothers, as soon as their check goes through. You can practically FedEx it to them. It's better than Viagra.
But nobody is going to hold Jimmy and Zbig responsible, because (a) they're Democrats, and therefore protected by the media mafia, and (b) they're never responsible for anything bad, no matter what the facts may be. In reality, the Jimmy & Zbig burlesque hoofers were either abysmally ignorant about Khomeini, or they knowingly sabotaged a major US ally at the very height of the Cold War. Take your pick. One way or another, they are responsible for this unholy mess. If they were on trial in a court of law, the jury wouldn't have to think twice.
Our media can't even imagine that Jimmy's and Zbig's treachery three decades ago will literally blow up in our faces, and sooner rather than later. But media ignorance doesn't change a thing. Reality always bites in the end.
Obama isn't just any old Democrat. Obama is historic, like Gorbachev or Vladimir Lenin. He is a liberal demigod, an object of worship. That's why a week ago Jewish liberals in New York paid $30,800 per person to eat rubber chicken with O. All that to reward Our Hero for disorganizing not just one country in the Middle East, but all of them. Human folly is the only infinite energy source known to science.
The Middle East is tottering from Morocco to Bahrain. Syrian rebels are being shot by imported Hezb'allah terrorists, since Syrian army troops can't be trusted to shoot their own people. The Saudis have sent troops into Bahrain. If Iran gets aggressive, the Saudis might import whole regiments of Pakistani soldiers to fight for them. Pakistan has its own nuclear weapons, and the Saudis helped pay for them. Now they are calling in their IOUs. All it takes is one cargo plane from Islamabad to Jeddah, and Saudi Arabia will be a nuclear power.
Israel's cabinet just had its first internationally publicized meeting in its deep nuclear shelter in Jerusalem. That was a signal, folks. Israel never talks about its nuclear defenses. Never. They publicized that cabinet meeting in the deep bunker last week to signal to the world that America can no longer be trusted. Every government in the world must have heard that loud and clear. Taiwan, Japan, and South Korea depend on American defense guarantees, but you can bet they are now accelerating their own nuclear plans. Poland has just established its own military alliance with neighboring countries, because they can't trust NATO and they sure don't trust Putin. The Pentagon just released a report showing that our anti-missile defenses are incapable of knocking down Iranian missiles, after Obama diddled with the Bush plan to defend Eastern Europe. Europe's capitals are now within reach of Iranian missiles. Ahmadinejad just had a "summit meeting" with Russia and China.
The moment to stop Iran's nuclear program has passed. A year ago it was still possible for massive US airstrikes to knock down their nuclear industry, and to stop missiles and jets from launching. We did it in Iraq, and we're doing it in Libya. But those are not nuclear nations. Once some maniac gets nuclear weapons, all bets are off. Admiral Mullen and General Petraeus must have told Obama those facts over and over again. But that crucial window of opportunity has now slammed shut. It's High Noon, and all we've got is water pistols.
Liberal pundits who have been celebrating America's "decline" have no idea how much suffering and pain Obama's chosen strategy of "leading from behind" will cause in Asia, the Middle East, and Latin America. And maybe here at home. If the liberals see a disaster they always blame the nearest adults. Jimmy Carter has made that kind of infantilism work for him for three decades. Nobody on the left has ever accused Carter of willful sabotage, no matter what the facts might be. On the contrary. Liberals like American weakness.
Well, nature abhors a vacuum, and Obama has this special Vacuum Grenade he keeps throwing at teetering regimes around the world. The Saudis are apoplectic, because he told Mubarak to resign, in public no less, just to see what would happen. What happened is that the Egypt-Israeli Peace Treaty crashed. That was the only treaty that's worked in the last six decades. Egypt then allowed two high-tech Iranian warships to transit the Suez Canal into the Mediterranean, where the US Sixth Fleet has reigned supreme since World War Two. Those Iranian ships carry Chinese anti-ship missiles, which make the Eastern Med a lethal zone for US and allied naval vessels. The Iranians docked in Syria, where Russia also happens to have a new naval base. Nobody knows what those warships carried, but chances are that they brought newer and better missiles for Syria and Lebanon.
If you were in charge of Israel's defenses, what would you guess the chances are for a major war in the near future? And what would you do to ensure survival? Yes, that's what I would do, too.
The formerly moderate country of Lebanon has now been taken over by Hezb'allah. The Palestinians have joined Hamas. Egypt is torn between the thuggish military and the über-thuggish Moos. The Saudis are under attack in their own oil-producing provinces by Shiite infiltrators from Iran. Gaddafi is laughing at those NATO bombings in Libya, and when all his Arab neighbors get their own nukes, why wouldn't he buy them off the shelf? He's got plenty of oil left over. A nuke is the best insurance he can buy. Just one bomb will guarantee that Gaddafi will live to a ripe old age. Obama will never be blamed. The NYT and WaPo won't criticize him, because that would be a confession that they supported and covered up the least qualified president this country has ever had. The media knew all about Obama six years ago. Every country with an intelligence service knew. Only millions of American voters were kept in the dark.
The Obamayyads have now done deliberately what sane people have nightmares about. Obama is prancing around the country for another victory lap, telling us how cool he is, and the same potato heads who voted for him last time will do it again.
But when those rockets go up from the Imam Ali missile base in Iran, tipped with miniaturized nuke warheads, the person responsible will be Our Brave Hero, Barack Hussein Soetoro Barry Obama.
I wish it weren't so.
But it is.
Somebody's got to say it.
