Jimmy Carter's pre-emptive surrender to nuclear blackmail
"What happens if, in three years' time, Iran has a nuclear weapon," Carter asked. "I'm not sure that is going to happen, but if it does, what do we do? They are rational people like all of us in this room. Do they want to commit suicide? I would guess not. So what we have to do is talk with them now and say to them we want to be their friends."In fact, Iran has already declared itself a suicide state, and has been doing so since the early 80's.
Ayatollah Khomeini, 1981:
We do not worship Iran, we worship Allah. For patriotism is another name for paganism. I say let this land [Iran] burn. I say let this land go up in smoke, provided Islam emerges triumphant in the rest of the world.In 2001 Rafsanjani said that the mutual annihilation of Israel and Iran would only injure the Muslim umma (of which Iran is only a part):
...application of an atomic bomb would not leave any thing in Israel but the same thing would just produce minor damages in the Muslim worldThe Iranians complained that this was being taken out of context, that Rafsanjani was talking about a "stalemate." But what was to be stalemated in Rafsanjani's speech was Israel's EXISTANCE. He was not talking about the calculus of deterrence, but was very clearly describing the attractiveness, from an Islamic point of view, of Iran and Israel both being erased.
Now here is Carter, using the counterfactual premise that Iran is NOT a suicide state to urge that we knuckle under to nuclear blackmail and treat Iran as if this existential foe is our friend, not because they HAVE nuclear weapons, but on the assumption that we are going to LET THEM GET nuclear weapons. He is against pre-emptive measures to interdict the Iranian conspiracy to kill off the Jews and commit mass murder in America, but he is FOR pre-emptive surrender to nuclear blackmail!
Ahmadinijad has several times sent America the traditional Islamic declaration of war, the call to convert or die:
Rest assured that if you do not respond to the divine call, you will die soon and vanish from the face of the earth.Kind of amazing that anyone could really not understand by now that our enemy's highest ideal is to die in the service of Islam, and that they really mean it. How many suicide bombers does it take to get the message across? In their version of Islam (the traditional and currently ascendant version of Islam, whether or not it is the "true" Islam), the only purpose of talking is to gain a stronger position from which to continue Islamic conquest.
That alone makes the Obama/Carter call for unconditional diplomacy with the Iranians foolish, but these men are much worse than just foolish. Obama is explicit that the REASON he seeks unconditional talks with Iran is to dispel the notion that America is any better than Iran:
If we think that meeting with the president is a privilege that has to be earned, I think that reinforces the sense that we stand above the rest of the world at this point in time.Obama is talking specifically here about Syria and Iran. He does not think that we stand above these Islamofascist enemies who have literally declared war on us, who cheer 9/11, and who are killing our troops in Iraq. He isn't saying we should treat Switzerland as a moral equal. He is saying that we should not regard ourselves as superior to the Hitlers of our age.
In the case of Carter, the reason is quite clear. He thinks that it is Iran that is morally superior, and he has plenty of company even amongst mainstream Democrats. Remember Bill Clinton at Davos in 2005, praising Iran for having the most "liberal" democracy in the world?
Iran today is, in a sense, the only country where progressive ideas enjoy a vast constituency. It is there that the ideas that I subscribe to are defended by a majority.What makes Bill Clinton see the Islamofascists as HIS kind of guys? They hate the United States and they hate Israel, and they don't have to listen to anyone calling for for limited government. ("If someone tells you he has a new interpretation of Islam, sock him in the mouth.)
Iran is the only country in the world that has now had six elections since the first election of President Khatami (in 1997). (It is) the only one with elections, including the United States, including Israel, including you name it, where the liberals, or the progressives, have won two-thirds to 70 percent of the vote in six elections: Two for president; two for the Parliament, the Majlis; two for the mayoralties. In every single election, the guys I identify with got two-thirds to 70 percent of the vote. There is no other country in the world I can say that about, certainly not my own.
Ditto for Carter, who made Michael Moore his guest of honor at the 2004 Democratic convention, as Moore was calling al Qaeda in Iraq "Minutemen" and freedom fighters. It doesn't matter that the people who Moore and Carter support are fighting for Islamic totalitarianism. What mainstream leftist Democrats mean by "freedom" is freedom from conservative America's oppressive belief in liberty, freedom from George W. Bush, freedom from the Republican party. The securing of their own power is the only concept of freedom that means anything to them. They seek the freedom to socialize the economy, to take away guns, to control education, and to legislate the puritanical fantasies of their "green" religion. This is why they feel sympathetic to the Islamofascists, who also seek "freedom" from the forces of American liberty.
The mainstream media is every bit as radically insane as our former presidents, and will do everything in their power to cover up the radical insanity of this new America-hating would-be future president. Are the American people duped enough to buy into the Media's glossy cover-up of the Obama suicide pill? Opinion polls say yes.
President Bush pulled off a stunningly successful revolution in the heart of the Islamic world, creating an enthusiastic democracy in Iraq with an electorate that is near unanimous in its hatred for al Qaeda and Iran, yet his approval ratings are at record lows. The media has actually managed to convince the public that this astoundingly successful war effort and presidency have been failures.
Next they will probably manage to convince the public that Republicans are to blame for the present high energy prices, deliberately engineered by thirty years of Democrat opposition to every form of energy development except for the grossly inefficient green triumvirate of solar, wind and bio-fuels.
Of course Obama is an energy hater too, along with being an America hater and a capitalism hater. As the future first hag put it: "Barack will never allow you to go back to your lives as usual."
Believe it. If we elect this enemy of America as our president in these dangerous times, America could well be done. Carter, Obama and the elder Clinton WANT Iran to get nukes. They WANT America to be humbled, just as the left actually WANTED the communists to win the Vietnam war. This might be the most evil deed ever committed by a free people--intentionally casting a whole corner of the world into slavery and mass murder--and the radical leftist Democrat mainstream STILL thinks this was a glorious achievement. Their next Vietnam, if we are stupid enough to put them in power, will be America itself.
