Aiding and Abetting the Enemy

Our POTUS Obama, eager to put another feather in the hat of his stellar legacy, finally gave the Iranian leaders what they wanted and brokered a nuclear agreement.  For the moment, the Iranians are pleased as punch and so is Obama and the other negotiators, but few others, whether Democrat or Republican are gushing over the achievement.  One could only hope that the U.S. Senators and Congressmen would actually do the right thing and reject this agreement in its entirety, but that’s wishful thinking.

Iran has been a constant source of instability and an active promoter of terrorism in the Middle East, and removing economic sanctions will do nothing to stop this behavior.  Their behavior is not because they are isolated, rather, they were isolated because of their behavior.  So now the world is supposed to play nice with Iran, and act normal as they are allowed to tinker with nuclear technologies for 10 years – at least what is kept visible and “non-suspicious”.

Obama stated that America negotiated from a position of strength – sigh.  Notably absent from the negotiations was any demand for Iran to release four American civilians that have been held for a number of years.  Oh how far the country has fallen since WW2 and the Cold War days.

With plenty of funds now open to flow into Iran, expect an increase in upheaval in the Middle East and elsewhere.  The world is not a safer place tonight.

    Watch now the scramble for Saudi Arabia, Egypt and Turkey to acquire nuclear weapons. Sadly, Winston Churchill’s reaction to Chamberlain’s appeasement of Hitler is fully applicable to this catastrophe. ‘We have suffered a total and unmitigated defeat … you will find that in a period of time which may be measured by years, but may be measured by months, Czechoslovakia will be engulfed in the Nazi régime. We are in the presence of a disaster of the first magnitude … we have sustained a defeat without a war, the consequences of which will travel far with us along our road … we have passed an awful milestone in our history, when the whole equilibrium of Europe has been deranged, and that the terrible words have for the time being been pronounced against the Western democracies: “Thou art weighed in the balance and found wanting”. And do not suppose that this is the end. This is only the beginning of the reckoning. This is only the first sip, the first foretaste of a bitter cup which will be proffered to us year by year unless by a supreme recovery of moral health and martial vigour, we arise again and take our stand for freedom as in the olden time.’

    I read an AP tweet on Monday quoting the Iranian president claiming that Iran “doesn’t want, and never did want, to build a nuclear bomb.” While I don’t believe this, now they can simply take the billions in “relief” and pay Russia for a suitcase nuke. As you point out, watch the line queue up for business! Even if this is not the correct scenario, I’m sure we haven’t seen the last of the Iranian nuclear aspiration. The IAEA has been befuddled before – I think we’re in for more of the same.
