Wherefore Iran?

[poll id=”243″]

The pro-Democracy movement in Iran is the most critical event in the world today. This country is pursuing a full-throated policy of apology towards the greatest evil and greatest threat to peace in the world, while we should be for the people and the movement who could be the greatest move TOWARDS peace. The anti-regime demonstrators in Iran are the most valuable people in the world if you want a better, safer world. Their success would have a spectacular effect on the war in Afghanistan, it would almost end the terror in Iraq, and it would undermine Chavez in Venezuela.

Only people who cannot distinguish between good and evil are still willing to stand on the sidelines and deny that this is a worthy cause for the sake of humanity. Unknown numbers of democracy demonstrators have been arrested, among them human rights advocates and lawyers. And still, for the fourth or fifth time, the Administration fudged yet again on a so-called “deadline” for the Iranian regime to renounce its pursuit of nuclear weapons and rescind other human rights violations. The Presidents reaction to the terrorist attack on Christmas Day and the rush to announce this is an “isolated incident” is just more proof that Obama is trying to pretend we are not at war.

John Kerry, who served in Vietnam, is inching closer towards making a decision to visit Iran.

My guess? Kerry will go and say he can no longer support the Left in his country that are apologists for terrorism and dictatorship, and that military pressure is imminent unless Iran cooperates with the rest of the world.

“He seems to think if he gives terrorists the rights of Americans, lets them lawyer up and reads them their Miranda rights, we won’t be at war,” Cheney says. “He seems to think if we bring the mastermind of 9/11 to New York, give him a lawyer and trial in civilian court, we won’t be at war. He seems to think if he closes Guantanamo and releases the hard-core al Qaeda trained terrorists still there, we won’t be at war.”

Isolationists, run and hide. That you are willing to stand by and watching the suffering and privations of the rest of the world while you sit comfortably in your suburban fiefdoms only speaks volumes about your cowardice.

Man up!
