Today is the day. The last several months of negotiations and political maneuvering comes to a head today as the UN awaits Iran’s answer to a demand to stop enriching uranium. Of course everyone knows what the Mad Mullahs and Prez Ahmawhackjob will say. The Iranians are not about to stop or even pause in their mad quest to develop nuclear weapons.
Iran has been thumbing its nose at the entire world since 1979 when “Peanuts” Carter handed the Mad Mullahs the country on a silver platter. All they have to do is agree to allow IAEA inspectors back in to monitor their program (like every other nuclear power in the world does) and start acting rationally. The latter is why it will never happen.
At one time Iran was one of the most advanced countries in the Middle East and Central Asia. The country, under the Shah, was an example of a backwater third-world country achieving a progressive, modern status on a level with the rest of the world. However, “Peanuts” didn’t see it that way and decided that Iran would be better off reverting to a 7th century theocracy.
Now we’re paying the price for that irrational decision. Iran has been a thorn in the side of the world for nearly three decades now and is about to become more than a nuisance. A nuclear-armed Iran is unthinkable. I cannot imagine the repercussions if they are allowed to get away with this. Besides the grave threat to the Middle East, it will embolden every tinpot dictator like Hugo Chavez.
How long before Chavez decides he needs nuclear weapons too? Imagine a country just south of us with nuclear bombs and an attitude. The longer we put this off and allow rogue nations to continue to starve their people in order to finance weapons of mass destruction, the worse it will be in the end. I’d like to think I left my children a better world than that ...
It’s not clear when exactly the deadline will run out.
It’s never going to run out because if it does the UN will actually have to make a decision about Iran, something that it obviously does not want to do.
Either its entrenched hatred of Isreal or its bloated gellatinous bureaucacy of do-nothing diplomats that believe that THEY actually run the world will prevent the UN from taking any serious part in the upcoming destruction of Iran.
That, I’m afraid, is going to up to us again.
Why are we worried about Russia or China? What would they do anyway if we decided to take direct action. Impose sanctions on us? I don’t think so. The longer we leave this the worse it will be. Unfortunately opinion in the US and Britain has gone downhill following the war in Iraq. I still think it was the right thing to do, but the moonbats have made a lot of capital out of the setbacks. Be that as it may we still have to act decisively before this loon gets his A bombs.
1979 was a turning point in history, the tragedy is that Jimmah was the President. Had it been Ronald Reagan the world would be very different today I feel. The fact that these scumbags took over sovereign US territory tells a lot about the contempt they have for us and our society. It’s time to play hardball. They need a bit of B52 carpet bombing on their piss pot installations. Oh and I am not worried about their air defences look what happened to Saddam and his “state of the art” ruskie air defence. It was toast when the US depoloyed stealth/wild weasels and all the other top technology against it. Things have moved on since then and no doubt they have even better toys to deploy. In any case a few cruise missiles would soon get the Iranians crying uncle!
Didn’t they claim that the World would end last week?
If they were wrong about that, what other mistakes have they made?
Yes Maj Mike, I had to mail out my mortgage payment today because Almondjoyjihad did not tell the truth - gasp - and his Armageddon/12th Imam hoohaw did not come about. I am not sure if this guy is truly on a world destruction mission or blowing smoke like the little despot in NoKo - whom is not blowing much smoke these days since his ‘missles’ fizzled.
