Thoughts on Iran

Iran is accountable. Their nation is accountable for taking United States Diplomats hostage 27 years ago. Their nation is accountable for trading arms illegally with corrupt United States politicians in exchange for release of those hostages. Their nation is accountable for rhetoric against the United States over the years that has been threatening against the people of the United States.

Were these the reasons behind the constant, threatening, war-mongering pressures put on Iran by the Bush administration, I could perhaps be more accepting. But they are not. Instead we are faced with another set of weapons of mass destruction excuses by our federal politicians, one of myriad of impossible to believe failures in representing the American people.

I don't want Iran to have nuclear weapons. In fact, I don't want Pakistan to have them either. Most importantly, I don't want Israel to have them. If you want to keep the threat of nuclear war, and possible global annihilation, from starting in the Middle East, then all parties involved must be placed on an even playing field. That arena cannot be everyone has nukes. It must be nobody has nukes. I'm sorry, but I don't care how many Jewish owned banks are in charge of tanking the U.S. economy, we don't owe Israel a dime or a minutes protection.

Isn't it enough that we supply Israel with billions of dollars in aid, as well as our most advanced weaponry, whenever it is called upon? And what have they done with it? Brought America to the brink of total economic collapse, foreign policy collapse, moral collapse, and military collapse. We also have to ensure they have the ability to harass their neighbors with nuclear destruction without the assurance that they too will be destroyed. That's the bully's dream, and the United States supplies it.

The only reason we are in Iraq, that we are going to attack Iran, that we constantly meddle in the affairs of every single Middle Eastern nation is because of Israel. It can't be because of oil. If you think that, then just look at what has happened to the cost per barrel of oil since George the First decided to storm the desert. Before his failure to finish what he started (an amazing trend by our public representatives), oil was below $20 a barrel. now it is over $90. Within one years time we will see gas prices well over five dollars a gallon because of the father and son blunder team. And despite all this, we are still looking to attack yet another Middle Eastern nation. What about Syria, and Egypt, and most recently Turkey. You know these nations must be next, threatening as they are to Israel. The commitment of United States military assets to Israel's machinations, this unfounded belief that their corrupt society somehow still holds a true covenant as God's chosen people, is pitiful. There is no Israel of Moses, Joshua and David anymore. It has succumbed to greed, gluttony, power and corruption. Because of this, God will fulfill the other side of his covenant, the part where Israel loses it all to the benefit of its enemies. If the United States as a nation integrates ourselves into their dealings, then we too will be faced with our destruction.

The days of the United States playing world's policeman are over. It benefited us for a time, and we profited from our muscle for quite some time. But now, no matter who we threaten, attack, befriend, or ignore, the U.S. economy is going to crash big time. Before that happens, we need to be able to defend ourselves here, not in some foreign land, squeezing the last bit of profit for a few elitist nut jobs in charge. That means no more aid to any nation worldwide. That means the United Nations can move elsewhere and pass phony, meaningless resolutions and sanctions. That means the foreign policy of the United States must be based on what is best for the electing people, not the elected poison ivy-leaguers. It means a lot of bad before a lot of good. As has always happened in U.S. history, we will see men of greatness and vision once again arise from the ashes. Perhaps it is you? Perhaps it's expected of me? Whatever the case, it has to happen in the US of A, not in some god-forsaken desert on the other side of the world.
