Question: What Happens When A Man With The Mentality Of A Suicide Bomber Runs A Nation Pursuing Nukes? Answer: You Crank Up The Bombers
Over at Little Green Footballs, Charles Johnson seems to be interpreting these comments by radical Islamic psychopath Mahmoud Ahmadinejad as a less-than-subtle admission that he intends to build nuclear weapons and launch them at Israel. I think he’s right…
“Our enemies on the one hand oppose our nation’s acquisition of nuclear energy and on the other hand want to divert the attention of other nations from the key issue of Palestine to give an opportunity to the Zionist regime to prolong its existence”, he said.
“One of the main reasons why the big powers oppose Iran on the nuclear issue is for the sake of the Zionist regime, so as to let this regime live on. But they are unaware that not only will the Iranian nation continue in the path of obtaining nuclear energy till the end, it will not even for one instant divert its attention from the issue of Palestine”.
“The regime occupying Qods [Israel] is the key to [Western] countries’ domination in Muslim lands, and with every blow at this occupying regime, it’s the pillars of the Global Arrogance (the West) that are targeted”.
Is Ahmadinejad crazy enough to risk an American and/or Israeli bombing run on his country? Looks like it. Is he enough of a madman to actually launch nukes at Israel? I take him at his word and believe the answer to that question is, “yes.” Would a lunatic like Ahmadinejad, who leads people in chants of, “Death to America,” hand nuclear weapons over to a terrorist group to use against the United States? It seems entirely possible. Even if none of these things were to happen, a nuclear Iran would certainly set off a nuclear weapons race in the Middle-East and within a few years we’d soon see a nuclear Saudi Arabia, a nuclear Egypt, and a nuclear Iraq — at a minimum. In and of itself, that nuke spiral increases the chances of a nuclear war or nukes being used in terrorist attacks tremendously.
What is being done about it? Since we have no diplomatic relations with Iran, we’ve farmed out all the negotiations on this issue to Europe. The negotiations have been quite the “multilateral” affair, but they’ve also failed utterly. Now, we’re planning to take the issue to the UN Security Council. However, that’s nothing but a charade since one of the members of the UN Security Council, Russia, is the country helping Iran to build nuclear weapons. So, just how far do we think they’re going to go to stop a problem they’re deliberately creating? There’s also the possibility that Ahmadinejad might be assassinated, overthrown, change his mind, etc., but since we may be talking about a situation where Iran’s nuclear facilities will have to be bombed in months, not years, in order to stop them from ultimately obtaining nuclear weapons, it seems unlikely that the problem is going to be solved peacefully.
That means a bombing run by either the US or Israel with a lot of repercussions. Prepare yourself, because it’s almost as much of a certainty at this point as the war with Iraq was back in mid-2002. It would be great to resolve this peacefully, but unless something changes drastically, that doesn’t appear to be in the cards.
