As they work to stifle American freedoms through “progressive” legislation like EFCA and nationalized health care, the hypocritical U.S. Congress decided to pass resolutions to make themselves look knowledgeable and concerned about election protests currently going on in Iran. Almost perversely wanting to be seen as upholders of democracy, the voice of the people, and free speech, near-unanimously they condemned the Iranian government’s violence against citizen protesters.
Ron Paul was the lone dissenting voice in the Senate, and there is certainly validity in his reasoning. Our Founders cautioned, from the start, that we must not stick our nose where it doesn’t belong. Particularly when we stick it into a place where a hand waits patiently, wielding a razor-sharp, double-edged sword, just itching to cut it off.
But what is happening in Iran today is not the stuff of which simple meddling is made. What is happening is unequivocably serious, and of concern here is the reaction of the White House.
“Wait and see.”
About a “…vigorous debate….”
There is nothing in the way of “debate” when the only vigor is found in the slaughter of unarmed citizens who raise their voices in protest of their government’s actions. (Any further questions on why it is so important we protect our 2nd Amendment rights here in America?) But his hands-in-pockets, whistling-in-the-dark, minimizing stance can be Obama’s only way, for the truth is that when it comes to the real world he has no experience from which to calculate a move or to assess the feasibility of any recommendation of a move, whether concerning matters foreign or domestic. Some claim he is simply keeping a cool head, and in one respect this may be true, for an Iranian revolution that ultimately overthrows the religious leaders at its helm and the resulting restructuring of the Middle East as we know it, perhaps accompanied by a nuclear exchange between Iran and Israel, as well as perhaps also sucking in a spin-off confrontation between India and Pakistan, with North Korea taking advantage of the ensuing chaos to throw in its nuclear gauntlet for good measure, is exactly what Obama needs to bring the U.S. economy out of the depression he has designed. He’s dug his tentacles into the auto industry (remember their work during WWII?) and he is doing his damndest to control the banks. Should the worst come to pass he will gear up the American War Machine for the benefit of…exactly who? For…exactly what?
With his silent and therefore tacit agreement of Ahmadinejad and the Ayatollah Khamenei, it is not for democracy and certainly not for the benefit of America. At least not for the America that was birthed through its own revolution some 200-odd years ago. To find a means to go to what Obama’s mask of delicate, spread-the-wealth sensibilities can justify as a legitimate war seems to be the hidden agenda behind the acceleration of his wholesale slaughter of the American economy and his continued wide-eyed toadying to the dictators in the Middle East and elsewhere in the world; in 180-degree contrast to the way he belittles and snubs our ally, Israel. For it is another world war that will allow Obama to raise his voice in its most soaring, fear-mongering rhetoric and so create an atmosphere that will accept, even (wrongfully) encourage his signing “emergency” executive orders to strip away our rights (guns, free speech, presidential term limits) under the guise of “national security”.
And in the end, subject us not only to his secret ambition of being a messiah, but also a king. A king who no longer must bow to his elders but instead may meet his Middle Eastern counterparts on the madman’s perception of equal ground.
