Bad Guys Now Good Guys

I do not know whether to report the following as “good news” or “bad news” but it certainly is interesting news. General Massoud Jazayeri, deputy chief of staff of the Iranian armed forces, you know, one of the bad guys according to the United States of America, came out with a battle plan to halt the Islamic State of Syria forces who currently are in Iraq. Latest reports reveal the ISIS is murdering Iraqi soldiers who surrender, and their compatriots in Syria just crucified a few men. Oh, it was not Jesus, not was it any person of the Jewish religion. Well, back to the story about Iranian generals, the men who head Iran’s Revolutionary Guard, top on our list of bad groups. General Jazayeri informed the Iraq government that he was prepared to develop a plan, based on the Syrian model, that will end the reign of ISIS terror. I trust the reader is clear–the guy we consider to be a “bad guy” is ready to assist the USA in defeating the bad guys currently in northern Iraq.

According to the Iranian general, he is ready to employ “our successful experiments in popular all-armed defense, the same strategy used against terror on the defensive–mobilizing masses in all ethnic groups.” Of course, the “terror groups” he was fighting were the terror groups we were supporting in Syria. It is now clear. The terror groups we oppose are now the terror groups we support and the end result will be triumph of the groups that we oppose. Please do not get confused. The enemy of my enemy is my friend. This is now AMERICAN FOREIGN POLICY. Clear?

America’s Middle Eastern Policy

A president of the United States is once again confronted with what to do in what we term, the Middle East. Actually, the expression, “Middle East” was invented at the turn of the 20th century by American Admiral Alfred Mahan. He was discussing the conduct of American military policy, and cited the importance of that area in our trade relations. A major problem confronting President Obama is: what exactly should be the foreign policy of the United States in the Middle East? Let me offer some suggestions:

1. It is critically important for Israel to build positive relations with Arab nations. Both Israel and Arab leaders share a joint concern about terrorist groups in the region. First step on the part of America is insisting that the Israel government cease its settlement building, and work with President Abbas to create an independent Palestinian state. That action would open doors for Israel to establish diplomatic relations with most Muslim nations in the region.
2. Iraq requires a coalition government including both Sunni and Shiite leaders. Either Prime Minister Maliki agrees to this basic concept or he is on his own. Fighting guerrilla groups depends upon winning the support of local people.
3. The situation in Syria has deteriorated to such an extent that moderate forces no longer have any power. Whatever such groups are still existing need moderate military support.
4. An agreement must be reached with Iran that includes their right to pursue nuclear development for peaceful purposes.
5. Nations such as Tunisia should be provided economic assistance since leaders in that nation have come together to work for peace and stability.
6. Egypt is now beyond our influence. It is simply too late to support moderate groups seeking to develop a democratic society. Just wait and listen.

World Turned Upside Down

I gather there are still people who believe that some sort of sanity is present on planet Earth. Let me cite some facts which should dissuade them of such thinking.

1. George Bush ordered the invasion of Afghanistan. Then Iranian President Khatami assisted US forces and was rewarded by being branded asa terrorist by the American president.
2. President Khatami offered a compromise with President Bush that included ending pursuit of nuclear weapons. He never received a reply.
3. Saddam Hussein was wiped out and Shiites took over Iraq.
4. Shiites proceeded to persecute and imprison Sunni leaders.
5. Americans organized Sunni Awakening Councils to fight al-Qaeda.
6. Prime Minister Maliki then proceeded to disband these groups and put in prison its leaders.
7. Sunni Iraqis have drifted into the arms of the Islamic State of Iraq and Levant, (ISIS).
8. ISIS forces took over the city of Mosul and were warmly greeted by Sunni residents.
9. President Obama continually offered to assist Maliki but he refused to grant American soldiers the right to be tried in a military court.
10. ISIS forces are marching on Baghdad.
11. Iran has dispatched 2,000 troops to aid the Iraq government.
12. President Obama has dispatched the George HW Bush aircraft carrier to aid the Iraq government.

In other words, American and Iranian forces will be working together. When asked about this possibility, Iran President Hassaan Rouhani replied: “If we see that the United States takes action against terrorist groups in Iraq, then one can think about it.”

I wonder if Republicans in the US Senate will block US cooperation with Iran that is designed to aid Iraq??

Dancing With The Devil

In the fall of 2001 as American forces entered Afghanistan in order to demolish the Taliban government that had aided the 9/11 attack, then Iran President Khatami offered to provide assistance to President Bush. Iranian border guards prevented Taliban soldiers from leaving Afghanistan and provided US intelligence with information. President Khatami offered to negotiate all problems with the US in exchange for an end to the embargo. President Bush responded to the offer with a tirade against Iran as one of the “axis of evil” out to harm the United States of America. In effect, George Bush ended the opportunity to resolve differences with Iran and halt their efforts to construct nuclear weapons.

As Iraq collapses due to the incompetence of Prime Minister Maliki, fellow Shiite leader President Hassan Rouhani has dispatched Iranian soldiers to assist the effort against the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant. (ISIS. Secretary of State John Kerry indicated a willingness to cooperate with Iran. “We’re open to discussions if there is something constructive that can be contributed by Iran.” In turn, President Rouhani has made clear, “We can think about it if we see America starts confronting terrorist groups.”

When Prime Minister Winston Churchill of England was asked why a leading anti-Communist would ally with the Soviet Union, he replied: “I would work with the Devil if it meant saving the British empire.”

Death Is Punishment For Wrong Religion Sect

Throughout human history we humans have continually displayed the ability to uncover some reason in order to kill another human. Europeans spent a hundred years in the 1500s and 1600s slaughtering one another in the name of Christ. Protestants killed Catholics and Catholics killed Protestants and Christians united to kill Jews.It was a time when, regardless of one’s religious orientation, someone was ready to shoot or stab or chop off a head. So, the current madness of al-Qaeda or the Islamic State of Iraq and Levant(ISIL) is not surprising. ISIL has just released pictures of dozens of young men, probably captured Iraq soldiers, being led to grave sites and then gunned down by the dozens. Pictures of masked men are shown along with comments such as: “the filthy Shiites are killed by the hundreds. This is the destiny of Maliki’s soldiers.

The object of this tirade of hate is clear -anger Shiites in order to unleash a wave of murders against Sunnis. The goal is always, kill and murder in the name of God. Fortunately, Shiite Grand Ayatollah has urged his followers, “exert the highest possible level of restraint.” Some will. Unfortunately, some will not. We can expect retaliation followed by retaliation. Death is not proud in Iraq at this time in history.

America Fights To Give Iran More Power!

Once upon a time, the American government attempted to create conditions for peace in the country of Iraq, but each time this effort was attempted, forces of religious hate assumed control of the situation. American military leaders warned and warned the government of Prime Minister Nouri Maliki to work closely with Sunni leaders in order to establish stability and calm in the country of Iraq. Shiite Prime Minister Maliki had but one desire –establish a Shiite religious state that was akin to the wonderful Muslim government in Iran. So Maliki drove out Christians, and then proceeded to either jail or drive out Sunni leaders in order to create the perfect little nation of Shiite Iraq. He rejected US aid, he terrorized Sunnis, and guess what happened?

Sunni Iraqis fled to the arms of radical Muslim terrorists and made certain the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant became powerful. This group took control of Mosul and now threatens to march on Baghdad. Maliki makes Saddam Hussein come across as the guy you want to lead Iraq. The only good news for Maliki is that Iran is furious that its protege is being attacked. Iranian President Rouhani has pledged military support for Iraq soldiers.

Let me get this straight:

1. The US invaded Iraq in order to build a barrier against Iran.

2. Shiite Iraqi leaders want to work with Iran.

2. So, Americans are gone, and now we can expect the arrival of Iranian troops whose goal would be to preserve Iraq.

Tea Party Pot Boils Over

There is good news in America, the evil Eric Cantor has fallen from grace, and been replaced by a real God fearing, 100%, blue blooded Christian by the name of David Brat. Finally, we will have men and women in Congress who will protect us from the terrorism of Catholics pouring across our borders in order to sweep our streets, pick up our garbage, cut out mean, and baby sit our children. Just imagine if we Americans had to do those tasks! Tea Party folk want to get someone in charge of Congress who will finally refuse to work with Barack Obama. Pet Sessions from the great state of Texas issued a warning to members of Congress. “I think this administration needs to be prodded and reminded that the entire sovereignty of the United States is at risk if we do not secure our border, north, south, east and west.”

I believe that under the administration of the dude from Africa TWICE AS MANY ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS HAVE BEEN DEPORTED THAN WERE UNDER THE PRIOR PRESIDENT FROM THE GREAT STATE OF TEXAS! The pot has boiled over and Tea Party activists want to change leadership of the Republican party from the Boehners and Cantors who have devoted the past five years doing whatever Barack Obama desires. After all, this Congress has passed fewer laws than any prior in fifty years. That is what happens when Republican leaders become stooges of the president.

Ayatollah Believes Iran Frightens World

There are Iranian leaders who seek to establish sensible relations with nations of the world, and there is always the Ayatollah Ali Khamenei who believes that he alone can decide the future of, not only his nation, not only the Middle East, but the entire world. President Obama told a West Point class that future American policy does not include a rush to military action. However, he never said that American policy would avoid military action. Nor did he say, that economic action would be employed and it might be more lethal than military action. The Ayatollah informed his nation that “military act is not a priority for America now.”

Reality: Economic sanctions have dealt crippling blows to the Iranian economy and lowered national income. The Ayatollah still does not grasp that in our modern world, trade and commerce define our living standards, not the size of our military or our ability to wage war. Heck, even Vladimir Putin has enough sense to avoid invading the Ukraine. The Ayatollah might think twice about insulting the current president. Has he ever considered the possibility of a different president with a different political party, and a desire to demonstrate toughness???

Unhappy In Tehran

Among the mysteries of my life is why are so many people in this world concerned when others enjoy themselves and engage in activities that bring joy to their hearts. A group of young boys and girls in Tehran were watching and dancing to the music of someone whose name is Pharra Williams and his video is named, “Happy.” The group decided to share their happiness with one and all on the Internet, and now they are unhappy in a prison in Tehran. I am certain authorities will claim the act of being happy or the act of singing or the act of dancing violate this or that ordinance of the Muslim religion. Of course,such claims rarely, if ever, are supported by words from the Koran, let alone the
Bible.

As I near the age of 84 it is clear that what brings joy to my heart and mind is not that which brings such happiness to other humans, particularly,those under the age of 25. Given unemployment rates, given low salaries, given high student debts, just let them be HAPPY!

Israel Supporters Ally With Islamic Militants!

Congressional Democrats and Republicans and the government of Israel are united in opposition to efforts of those seeking to end conflict with Iran and create a stable Middle East. Benjamin Netanyahu is undoubtedly the best friend any Iranian terrorist could seek in the world. Iranian President Hassan Rouhani is fighting Islamic militants in his own nation in order to bring Iran into a peaceful place in the world and end concerns about nuclear weapons. He recently was attacked by Fatemieh Alia of the Islamic Revolution Resistance Front for giving into the West on nuclear weapon issues. “Since the beginning of the drafting of the final nuclear agreement which Iran is scheduled for 13 May this year, the analysts, the university students, the elites, and the university professors wish to express their worries to the Iranian nuclear negotiators.” The “We’re Concerned” group is composed of Islamic terrorists and militants.

American congressmen are expressing the same doubts about President Rouhani. American Congressmen are doing everything in their power to disrupt negotiations. In other words, our leading American Jews are presently in an alliance with the Islamic Revolution Resistance Front!!
