Democrats have accused Republicans of wanting to go to war with Iran. They say that by foiling Obama’s unilateral nuclear negotiations with the Islamic Republic, they hope to engage with military action. What these Democrats refuse to acknowledge is that war may be inevitable, regardless of how Obama’s negotiations turn out. And if a recently-translated set of documents found in a secret Iranian military handbook are anything to go by, it’s a war we may lose.
To the average American, the thought of losing a war with a failed state like Iran seems like dystopian fiction. But a nuclear weapon is the great equalizer. With it, even a pathetic band of terrorists can become a threat not just to a country but to the whole of humanity. And Iran may not be in the 21st century with the rest of us, but they are certainly more dangerous than that. With a nuclear weapon in their arsenal, say experts, they could wipe out the U.S. power grid for at least a year.
“Iranian military documents describe such a scenario,” wrote Peter Vincent Pry last week. “Including a recently translated Iranian military textbook that endorses nuclear EMP attack against the United States.”
A series of nuclear attacks at critical junctures along the power grid could spell the end for modern civilization. Without power, according to the Congressional EMP Commission, 90 percent of Americans could be dead within a year due to chaos and starvation.
If it sounds far-fetched, think about how absurd it would have sounded ten years ago if someone told you we were actively trying to help Iran achieve nuclear sustainability. It was around that time that President Bush got up in front of Congress and called Iran one-third of the Axis of Evil. Today, they are our tentative allies against ISIS and Obama thinks they can be trusted with nuclear power. This, despite the fact that Iranian General Hassan Firouzabadi said last year that they were “ready for the decisive battle against the U.S. and the Zionist regime.”
Sounds like the kind of people we should allow to build a nuclear bomb, right?
It has become clear that we are going to have to make a choice very soon. We’re going to have to decide, once and for all, if we are Israel’s allies or not. We already know where President Obama stands. We know where America’s liberals stand. They stand with the Palestinians. They stand with Islam. Fair enough. The rest of us need to decide whether or not we agree. And if we don’t, we need to get serious about it, because this is potentially the biggest issue facing our country.
Make no mistake about it, the choice to retain our relationship with Israel is a dangerous one. It puts us in direct conflict with Islam, whether Obama wants to admit it or not. That means we will always be a target for terrorism. That means we will be at war with this disturbing ideology until it has been destroyed.
Obama and the Democrats want it both ways. They think we can be friends with Iran and friends with Israel at the same time. It’s a sham, and it’s about time we called it out as such. We are putting ourselves in terrible danger by playing both sides of the fence. It will have consequences.
In a hundred years, Americans are going to look back at this point in history and see it for the fork in the road that it is. Let’s decide now if those Americans will be governed by an Islamic theocracy or by the U.S. Constitution.
