It was George Santayana who said, “those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it.” It was Japan who had sent a delegation to Washington DC for talks as Admiral Yamamoto’s naval armada steamed towards Pearl Harbor. So history repeats itself as the US has begun negotiations with Iran. Yet according to nuclear experts at the Institute for Science and International Security, Iran could be just one month away from having enough weapons-grade uranium for a nuclear device.
Just last week we remembered the 30th anniversary of the Beirut bombing that left some 250 Marines, Sailors, and Soldiers dead. The country behind that attack was Iran and what was to become their proxy Army, Hezbollah. As a matter of fact, the “reformist” president of Iran, Hassan Rouhani, named as Defense Minister Hossein Dehghani, who was responsible for that heinous truck bomb terrorist attack.
Don’t forget it was the weakness of another Democrat President — Jimmy Carter –that gave us the radical Islamic totalitarian regime of Iran in the first place.
According to foreign relations policy in the Obama administration, we spy on our allies while embracing our enemies, Iran and the Muslim Brotherhood. The only way to negotiate with Iran is from a position of strength, probably from about 30,000 feet going at mach speed.
