Iranian Aggression

with 13 comments

The time is growing short for when the world must decide if it wants to allow Iran to enter into the nuclear club. Judging from their lack of will to act, world leaders seem to have no problem with Iranian aggression. This is surprising since the stated goal of Ahmadinejad is to commit mass murder on such a scale that it brings about the end of the world. Oh yeah, we must not forget that it’s all in the name of Islam. I really don’t see how the danger can be expressed more clearly. I suppose we could wait for an actual string of nuclear detonations, but of course by then it will be much too late.

OK, I agree it’s the rantings of a madman, but a madman with a plan. Had you heard the plans of 9/11 beforehand you would have also thought that to be absurd. So the question remains, should the world wait until after Ahmadinejad begins his mad dash to global destruction, or should his nuclear capability be eliminated before it has a chance to unfold?

At least consider what it would be like to have a rogue nation blackmailing the world with nuclear weapons at every turn. We have already seen glimpses of this from North Korea. Iran on the other hand has it’s operatives firmly entrenched in ways North Korea could never dream of much less facilitate. The longer the world waits the more time Iran has to obtain nuclear weapons. We must also remember that the more time that passes, the more time Iran has to get people and equipment into position for a strike or counter-strike.

War is a horrible thing, but it seems that there are those destined to live by the feud. If allowed to continue, Ahmadinejad will only toy with his prey until he grows tired of the game. Even after receiving all the concessions the world has to offer, he will still initiate the chain of events necessary to complete his original goal.

On your quest for wisdom you must understand that to sit back and do nothing, hoping that evil will leave you alone is a fools game. There should be a constant drumbeat of condemnation, instead Iran is being protected by an invisible wall of silence.

  1. Hi LC,

    There are several factors that contribute to this situation. First, Europe is not really in the mood to do anything which upsets their socialist bliss. Second, there is the tendency to think that the primitives in Iran can’t possibly obtain the technical sophistication necessary to acquire nuclear weapons. Third, even if they did, most civilized people can’t bring themselves to think that they would use them for anything beyond a negotiating edge. Forth, at the moment, they don’t have missiles which can reach the US. Fifth, we have the technology necessary to drill through glass, so, if worst comes to be, the oil won’t be lost, and may even be cheaper, while, in the face of such an attack, giving us a great excuse for solving the Muslim problem once and for all. Sixth, as a side benefit, the large number of nuclear explosions would go a long way toward negating any Global Warming, killing two birds with one stone.

  2. Hi Grit

    I always find it an interesting study as to why people will take one perceived danger to the extreme such as global warming, but say next to nothing about a real danger like unstable Islamic leaders acquiring nuclear weapons.

    In the past, people like Ahmadinejad could be dismissed as pumping up the home crowd for personal gain, but in his case we see other factors coming into play. In one form or another Iran’s fingerprints are found on much of the world’s terrorism. Sure, they are not the only player, but they do seem to be in the lead position.

    You are right when you say that Iran doesn’t have missiles that will reach the US, but strictly speaking this is not necessary. Now that Iran has set up commercial flights directly to the western hemisphere an airplane will suffice. We know how they love to use airplanes.

    We must also remember that somewhere along the way the Soviets seem to have misplaced around 80 of their suitcase nukes. Now that they are so friendly with Iran it’s not out of the realm of possibility that Iran may have already purchased several of these and are just waiting for the proper moment.

    The rest of your arguments are sound when dealing with just another dictator with the simple ambition of ruling the world. Unfortunately, in Ahmadinejad’s case we are dealing with a lunatic that just wants to destroy it in the name of Islam. I know that he won’t succeed, but a lot of people will die if he is given the chance to try.

  3. Hi LC,

    Don’t get me wrong, I’d have invaded them long ago were the decision mine to make. Those excuses are just how I see other people reacting.

    As to the missing nukes, unless Iran purchased the arming codes and technical support to replace the triggers, which decay and must be replaced every 3 to 5 years if the weapon is going to function, then they have wasted their money. Of course, there are all those out of work nuclear scientists from the old USSR…

  4. Hi Grit

    I hope you are right about the nukes. Assuming you are correct and they are now useless, there are still Soviet nuclear scientists helping and working in the facilities in Iran. We can only conclude if nothing is done to halt production Iran will get nuclear weapons.

    From that point every terrorist organization on the planet will be standing in line. The first one goes off and Iran will deny any action. It was Hamas, not us. What a mess when that begins.

    The world is gutless. If this were 1940 were would ALL be speaking German. There is no Churchill left in all of Britain.

  6. Hi tt

    I’ve had a chance to read many of the writings of Churchill and can appreciate what he must have gone through in the mid to late 1930’s. No one wanted to believe him as he kept warning about Hilter.

    Today the dangers are even more pronounced, yet the world sees what it wants to see. I hate to say it but if Churchill were around today he would still have the same trouble convincing people as he had then.

  7. Hi Grit, ……….. “we have the technology necessary to drill through glass, so, if worst comes to be, the oil won’t be lost,” I got to hand it to you this is a pretty good one. ……… steve

    LC, …………. There is much validity to what you say here. I particularly like the point you make above about the left projecting their misplaced fear of man made GW to its logical conclusion, but clueless on the threat from the Middle East from these nut jobs when they have as much as told us what is coming. ………. steve

  8. Hi Steve

    First of all I would like to congratulate you on your new site. Nice.

    Yes, it can’t be more clear but I guess it will take a few hometown bombings or beheadings to get some up to speed.

  9. Hi LC,

    Actually, it will take the horrible deaths of some politicians to get up some speed. Really, while I am sure our leaders morn the loss of any vote, since the crime wave unleashed on us from illegal immigrants hasn’t moved them to control our borders, it seems like a logical assumption that a few hundred, or even a few thousand, US deaths at the hands of terrorists will only be an excuse for more grand speeches. Until the people in charge feel threatened, nothing will change.

  10. Hi Grit

    You are absolutely right! Well done. And the most amazing thing is sacrificing a few politicians really doesn’t seem like a high price to pay. A bargain in fact.

  11. Hi LC,

    Thanks. What, may I inquire, would you call a bus load of politicians going over a cliff?
