EIGHT DECADES OF INSIGHTS-87

English: Coat of arms of the Islamic Republic ...

BLIND OR STUPID?

The Swift Boat hero of the Vietnam War and now Secretary of State, John Kerry, in response to questions about negotiating with Iran, commented, “we are neither blind nor stupid.” I believe him. This Administration is neither blind nor stupid.

It is inept, has no understanding of history and is sharply tilted to the Muslim side in all disputes. Those three characteristics accompany this Administration into all negotiations with the Muslim world.

Iran wants nuclear weapons. Iran has endured hardships to attain them. Its people have suffered under American-led sanctions. Iran is not an Arab nation. Arab States are mostly Sunni Muslims. Iran is a Shia Muslim State run by extremist clerics. It wants to dominate the Arab Middle East. The first step after the acquisition of nuclear weapons is the destruction  of Israel. When Iran, the leading terrorist-supporting nation in the world, gets nuclear weapons, they will use them. Mutual Assured Destruction policies that have kept nuclear peace will not contain Iran.

By smiling and offering negotiations, the Iranians are simply buying time. They are close. Why would a nation proclaiming their nuclear industry is only interested in the peaceful use of nuclear energy have a crash program to develop ballistic missiles? Why isn’t that question being discussed in the open? Obama needs an agreement with Iran to bolster his eroding stature, home and abroad. His over-eagerness to embrace negotiations has tied the hands of the Israelis. How can they launch pre-emptive action in the midst of negotiations between Iran and the Western world? They won’t. Obama will never back the Israelis or use our own military power to stop the centrifuges in Iran. He simply doesn’t have what it takes to protect America and the world from a nuclear Iran. Just ask the Saudis, Jordanians, Egyptians, or the Arab Gulf States. They are on the front lines and fear a nuclear Iran. The French ares carrying the ball for the West in negotiations with Iran. Who would ever have believed that?
