View From Tehran

The Republican party and quite a few Democrats are allied in opposition to the attempt to forge a negotiated resolution of Iran’s plans with nuclear energy. There is something ironic about the fact those who oppose the interim agreement with Iran within Iran come across with the same arguments being advanced in the US Senate. Shervin Ahmadi reporting from Tehran outlined what is happening in Iran. “Contrary to expectations, the interim agreement did not result in any euphoria among Iran’s leaders though they displayed guarded satisfaction. In the end, only the most hardline elements of the regime, those close to former president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, expressed opposition.” On the other hand six famous movie directors expressed the view held by many young people, “There is no deal worse than no deal.”

Reality, “the economic situation is very difficult, Iranians are crushed by continual price rises and dissent is growing.” So, let me get this clear: those in the US Senate who oppose the interim agreement are in league with former President Ahmadinejad who was the one speaking about destroying Israel! I assume birds of a feather gather together.

King Salman Is No Solomon!

Once upon a time there was a king who lived in the desert. Frankly, no one paid any attention to this royal figure whose main wealth lay in the vast expanse of desert. If you wanted to cross the desert which he claimed to own, then you had to pay for the right to get thirsty in HIS desert. Well, one day some stranger found something under the sand, and by golly, it was black and it was liquid. The King soon had thousands of strangers coming to HIS desert seeking his approval to get the black liquid which was known as –OIL — from the sand. And, by golly, this King soon became the richest man in the entire world. Suddenly, this who paid no attention to him came seeking his blessing.

Such is the tale of the house of Saud. Today, there is a new King Saud who rules Saudi Arabia. He is very angry at the USA because it is talking with clerics from the Shiite muslims in Iran. King Salman is guardian of Mecca and expects one and all to bow before him and seek his blessing. The Shiites in Iran don’t give a damn for his oil or his heretic brand of the Muslim religion. So, King Salman is angry and is blasting away at renegade Shiite Muslims in Yemen. His approach is rather unusual. His planes just drop bombs and whoever dies, dies. A King of Saudi Arabia is raised to believe that his word is law ands anyone who opposes him gets some lashes, if they are lucky. King Salman will not talk with President Obama until he agrees with how to solve problems in the Middle East. For some reason, President Obama does not believe bombing civilians will solve any problem. So, King Saud refused to come to the Obama party at Camp David.

Jeb On Iraq

Jeb Bush wants one and all to know that he is proud of his brother, his father, Don Rumsfeld, Dick Cheney and all the others who gave us the Iraq war. OK, he does admit there were a few mistakes which should give assurance to those who lost sons, daughters, brothers, and parents in this war without end. “I would have authorized an invasion and so would Hillary Clinton. And so would just about everybody that was confronted by the intelligence they got.” There definitely, according to Jeb, were those few mistakes. “By the way, guess who thinks those mistakes gook place as well? George W.Bush.” I am so glad that George finally admitted those mistakes.

Of course, just about every political expert on the Middle East did NOT agree with those “intelligent agencies.” Anyone who had studied anything about the Middle East understood that Iran was confronted by two enemies, Afghanistan and Iraq. And, guess who got rid of the enemies of Iran? George W. Bush. Let us assume for a moment that Bush was right and Saddam had weapons of mass destruction. That would mean he had missiles. Not even the Bush crowd claimed those missiles could travel more than 500 miles. So, how could they threaten the US– if they actually existed?

George Bush authorized an invasion without any plan of what would happen after victory. George, please check the multitude of plans during WW II that detailed how an occupation would be carried out.

Jeb just proved that he is a true Bush!

What’s New In Republican Politics?

In order to speed up the process of this primary season which will last for over a year before we begin the event known as an election, we thought if might be interesting to offer a preview of what Republicans will be discussing during the coming months

1. Hillary Clinton is a closet lesbian. But, don’t get us wrong, some of our best friends are lesbians.

2. Bill Clinton is the secret lover of George Clooney.

3. At this very moment a giant tunnel is being constructed under the Pacific Ocean to transport Chinese soldiers in their invasion of America.

4. ISIS is behind the government of Iran.

5. Lower taxes, reduce the money coming into the government and raise military expenditures by $150 billion.

6. If elected, Senator Rand Paul will personally lead American troops into battle in Iran. His chief of staff will be Liam Neeson.

7. We need to repeal Obamacare and provide health insurance to those without. Just be patient, we will soon explain our plan.

8. Once Republicans are in control of the federal government the drought will end in California.

9. Unleash Wall Street and economic prosperity will rise for those earning $7.25 an hour, their wages will rise dramatically to $7.75 cents an hour.

10. Jesus will finally return knowing he will be greeted by the Koch brothers.

Republican Tough Guys!

These days listening to Republicans boast about their desire for war against evil Iran, one wonders why it is that so many of these tough guys have never served in the US Army? Marco Rubio, who would not know the front end of a bazooka, quoted the words of “General: Liam Neeson, who is a movie actor and has never fired a single shot against anyone other than a blank bullet aimed at another actor. Marco the Brave wants t he world to know that when it comes to Iran, “we will find you,and we will kill you!” Wow, those are strong words of bravery. According to Scott Walker, “we need a commander-in-chief who will call it what it is, and that is radical extremism. We need a president who will affirm that Israel is an ally and start acting like it.”

OK, so here is the Obama record:

1. President Obama provided Israel with its Dome program that destroys at least 90% of missiles aimed at Israel.

2. Under the Obama administration the state of Israel with its seven million people receives more military aid than any other nation in the world!

3. President Obama authorized the dispatch of an additional TWENTY FIVE THOUSAND MARINES TO AFGHANISTAN

Marco, Liam Neeson is an actor. He has absolutely not experience fighting real people. If you really want to get ISIS, just join the US army or go to Iraq and join their army and actually FIGHT BAD GUYS!

North Korea And Iran

I do understand that members of the Republican party seek to force Iran to halt its nuclear program. After all, the only reason for having atomic bombs is to wipe out the innocent and ever loyal land of Israel. Republicans do admit that as of this moment, the nation of Iran does not possess any atomic weapons, but according to Bibi Netanyahu, the driving force in Iran is to send their non-exzistant atomic bombs headed to Israel. Of course, Israel DOES POSSESS EIGHTY ATOMIC BOMBS, but we all know that peace and non-war are fundamental to the governments of Israel.

I do get confused about the Republican concern about atomic bombs. There is a nation which does have atomic weapons, including missiles which can be fired from submarines, but Republicans have absolutely NO interest in such nations. Kim Jong-un, head of North Korea, has repeatedly boasted that his nation is building atomic weapons and recently made clear they now have in their possession atomic weapons which might reach the shores of America. So, who is the nation feared by Republicans?

Iran which does not have a single atomic weapon and has agreed to UN inspection!

Is there any member of the Republican party who has a single intelligent idea about foreign policy?

My Dream

There are moments when I dream of seeing a line of Republican candidates discussing their ideas for the United States of America. Some desire to see comedy on television, I desire to see comedy in real life. Just imagine the dialogue between Mike Huckabee and Ted Cruz! I would cherish the idea of Marco Rubio once again standing up for Israel. Of course, does he even know where that country is located, let alone knowing that 20% of its citizens are Muslims or Christians. You know, he so loves Christians as long as they don’t challenge them Jews in Israel. Of course on the stage if one woman, you know, the woman who was fired for being incompetent by Hewlett Packard, but she now wants to get fired by the American people for being incompetent.

I do admire Rand Paul who once upon a time wanted to reduce the amount spent on military spending but after a session with Sheldon Adelson, realized that would men less money for Israel,the land he so loves. Then again, there is always Doctor Ben Carson who does not believe we humans could ever understand anything about a brain since God alone knows such stuff. Imagine him operating on my brain! Perhaps, we should line up this group and have them dance and sing. It would be more entertaining then anything they could say.

On with the show. America awaits this performance!

Black Helicopters In The Sky!!

Decent hard working Christian Americans for years have been warning about a take-over of our nation by evil forces pretending to be on the side of democracy and our Constitution. But, since the election of a black dude from the African nation of Kenya, this nation has been going down and down. The reason each household has to possess several weapons including rocket launchers and grenades is that every night there is the possibility of black clad storm troopers knocking down our door, rapine our wife, daughter or niece while we are forced to watch this horror. Finally, the truth is emerging. The US armed forces are conducting military exercises they term, Jade Helm 15 in the state of Texas. It is clear this so called, “exercise” is simply a ploy to allow these black clad storm troopers to take over the government of Texas, and then enter each and every house in order to strip us of our guns? Listen to the bull-shit coming from the US Army: “Jade Helm is simply a challenging eight week training exercise for unconventional warfare.” The only goal of this “exercise” is to gain control of Texas –the state that leads America in protecting our gun rights.

First they conducted a “training exercise.”

Then they entered our homes and took possession of our guns.

Then they ripped up our Constitution and made Barack Obama dictator for life.

Then they gave power to Michelle Obama to control which foods we ate.

Then they made being a Christian a crime against the state.

Then they made being gay or lesbian mandatory for all men and women.

Then, they instituted Shariah law.

Please, please, Jesus destroy these evil creatures!!

Bibi Ready For Action, I Think

Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu once again warned the people of Earth about the evil folks living in Iran. “The greatest challenge is Iran’s attempt to arm herself with nuclear weapons, and itvs parallel to open fronts of terror and occupation throughout the Middle East around our borders. Let me warn you about an even greater threat to peace in the Middle East. Examine the record of this nation:

1. It has at least 80 atomic bombs.

2. It does not allow UN inspectors into its nuclear sites.

3. Since 1948 it has launched invasions at least six times.

4. It violates UN and international laws without backing down from its actions.

5. It has a powerful theocracy that exerts strong control over the country.

6. During its last invasion its military forces killed 1500 innocent civilians.

Oh, the country is obviously–ISRAEL.

I support the idea of a nation named Israel as long as it lives up to its founding principles of justice for all and working for peace.

Oh, for the record, the nation of Iran since 1979 has never invaded another Middle Eastern nation.

Gaza Deaths Were Never In Doubt

The Israel army has invaded Gaza time after time in order to destroy Hamas military targets. No one doubts that Hamas has been planning and, even carrying out, missions designed to inflict casualties upon Israel citizens. A central issue surrounding these attacks is whether or not the deaths imposed upon the guilty was also inflicted upon the innocent. Sixty Israel soldiers told investigators they were informed by those in charge of the latest attack in Gaza that everything in Gaza was a “threat” and they were not to worry about how much ammunition was sent in the direction of what was supposed to be Hamas forces. Tanks just blasted away at buildings whether or not they contained Hamas soldiers or innocent civilians. The guiding principle was, “we don’t take risks. We do not spare ammo. Anything in Gaza is a threat.”

If those are the operating guidelines for soldiers then it is not a surprise that innocent people will also die. An estimated four or five hundred Hamas soldiers were killed. An estimated 1500 other people also died. Perhaps, there is another approach to Gaza. Perhaps, if Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu worked as diligently for peace as he does for war, then, just perhaps, the innocent would not die. His main guideline is always, ATTACK.
