Remember this Monday morning as it may end up being the “peace in our time” modern day Sir Neville Chamberlain moment. The reason we teach history is to avoid repeating its pitfalls and this is why the liberal progressive concept of revisionist history is so dangerous.
Why are we so anxious to have a kumbaya moment with Iran? Iran is the number one state sponsor of terrorism in the world. Why the country even has a government agency that strategizes exportation of its tactics. In every part of the world where there are Islamic terrorist activities, you’ll probably find Iran’s fingerprints.
In October we sadly remembered the 30th anniversary of the Beirut bombing where 250 of our Marines, sailors, and soldiers were killed by an Islamic terrorist truck bomb. The person who planned and oversaw the execution of that attack, General Hossain Dehghan, was appointed as the new Iranian defense minister back in August.
Just a few weeks ago, Iran was celebrating “Death to America Day” remembering the taking of our American embassy and the over 400 days of detention of Americans.
Out of the almost 190 countries in the United Nations, there is only one that continuously calls for the destruction, and elimination of another member country — Iran. And how is it that Secretary of State John Kerry would even engage in talks with Iran while they have an American Christian minister, Saeed Abedini, imprisoned for nearly a year? The unconscionable part of this travesty is that he was not even mentioned by President Obama, nor Kerry — he remains imprisoned.
So what did we gain from this imbecilic venture? The same as Neville Chamberlain — the opportunity to return home and receive the cheers of those who are clueless and be hailed as having accomplished something historic — not a historic achievement but a historic blunder. Even Aljazeera acknowledges there’s a “tough road ahead.”We have appeased a mad regime led by theocrats focused on attaining a device which will initiate an apocalyptic event according to their belief — the theory of mutually assured destruction (MAD) does not apply.
Chamberlain thought he had secured an agreement from Adolf Hitler, but in reality he had encouraged and enticed a dictator with his weakness, and the demands increased. President Obama and John Kerry have done nothing less.This is just another failure of an inept community organizer and will not only affect Israel and America, but the world. So now it’s off to a series of fundraisers for Mr. Obama where he can be praised and lauded while the rest of us contend with the failure of Obamacare, and ponder the ramifications of his foreign policy folly.
History only remembers Chamberlain as an incompetent fool and the legacy of President Obama is heading that way. The country needs a Winston Churchill. He was at first vilified for his views, but he ultimately became the symbol of strength and a champion for his countrymen.
