The Precedent of Iran: Is that a nuke in your pocket or are you just happy to see me?
Legitimate attack, especially the preemptive type, needs precedent to earn
Suppose a man with his hand in his coat pocket protruding a large pointy
object hidden in a leathery pocket, started yelling "I'm going to remove you
from the face of the earth!" Plus this menace has a rap sheet a mile long,
starting 25 years ago, for crimes against humanity. Wouldn't one be
justified in attacking first? Wouldn't that be self defense?
Some would say, let's wait and contain him. Yeah, just like Chamberlain
"contained" Hitler in 1938. Results? 62 million deaths a mere 7 years
after. How did THAT strategy work?
I can't explain that suicidal imbecility, can you?
Never play leapfrog with a unicorn
Okay, now we know that the Saddam's WMDS weren't in Iraq in the multitudes
everyone thought they were. From "Slam Dunk!" CIA genius George Tenet to
the `17 ignored binding UN resolutions, to the French, Brits, Chinese, and
Russians; all claimed that Saddam had those weapons plus a versatile ongoing
Most important, we have the quotes and votes of senators from Hillary, to
Kerry, to Edwards to Biden, and yes even their newest bud, Senator Hagel.
They urged their president to go to Iraq and remove Saddam for many reasons.
The WMDS were just one of them.
Hussein had ample time and transport facilities to ship those poisons
Second in command to the Iraqi Air Force, General Georges Sada, has sworn to
have knowledge of convoys of planes and trucks mass transporting the WMDS to
Arrogant, stupid and fanatical is no way to lead a country
Surviving Hussein in attempting to become the latest version of Saladin,
Mahmoud Amadinajad (Ah'm Mad), leader of Iran, or in his case, Irant, has
posed himself as the foremost geographer of the universe. Unilaterally,
he's decided that Allah wants him to erase Israel from the map. Despite the
UN's huffing and puffing via sanctions against Iranians, Ah'm Mad claims he
has a right to develop nuclear power for "peaceful" purposes. Man, what a
coincidence! Oh, let not my heart be suspicious!
Mahmoud even went to the trouble of sponsoring a Holocaust festival. I mean
seminar, to see whether Hitler and his Euro agents committed genocide upon
the Jews, one of the most documented crimes in history. Ah'm Mad, ever the
affable host, was kissed by Nazis on one cheek and a couple of DNA
challenged "Rabbis" on the other.
If the Holocaust was disproved he could claim there was no need for Israel.
If the Holocaust was proved he could blame it on the Germans and the rest of
Europe and claim the Israeli State need be picked up and moved to the same
zip code of Berlin, Vienna or Parie, lox, bagels, and cream cheese. This
regardless the UN'S awarding Israel's Statehood in 1948, and the fact that
no one in the world has a better claim on its geographical location than the
Either way, no Israel as we know it.
Meanwhile, Ah'm Mad has nuclear scientists buried deep beneath the Iranian
dessert dizzily concocting ingredients moving the Persians closer and closer
to producing bombs that could fulfill his promise. Peaceful energy? What a
The Irant is sitting on billions of barrels of oil.
One has to assume that like Hitler, Ah'm Mad, means to execute his promise.
Evidence shows that he would be willing to nuke Israel despite the potential
of killing thousands of Palestinian Arabs, not to speak of the Christians
living in and near Israel. He believes he can do this with just one well
No doubt, he'll easily find a Muslim Cleric to bless this genocide. I
guarantee that's the only legality he's interested in.
It's okay to repeat yourself as long as you're following precedent.
I say, attack and destroy the Iranian nuke plant now rather than later. But
what does one do to justify this act?
There was another attack on a tyrant's nuclear plant. About 27 years ago a
country posed a threat with their developing nukes. One of its neighbors
took umbrage and attacked Saddam Hussein's nuclear bomb plant called Osirak.
What was name of that precedent setting country?
If you said Israel, you'd be wrong.
That country was Iran. It bombed Osirak on September 30, 1980. Israel
finished the job on June 7, 1981.
As they say at the Indy 500, "GENTLEMEN START YOUR ENGINES!!!"
The nuke clock is winding down...Tic toc, tic toc, tic toc Ö
