Progress is desirable and possible, but not on the basis of pseudo-scientific theoretical novelties and fads which are in many cases merely alibis for moral responsibility and moral training. Science is a mighty weapon, a glittering sword in the hand of civilization. But if civilization permits science to rob it of its moral foundations it will be a case of suicide by falling on its own sword.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has returned from his meeting with Obama empty-handed. Netanyahu had striven to get the Obama Regime to work with Israel, or at least support them, in a strike upon Iran’s nuclear weapons development program but Obama refused to do so until after the 2012 elections this November.
This rejection was to be expected. Netanyahu and Obama are two very different people with insurmountable differences in outlook, priorities, and basic character.
Netanyahu and Obama In Their Youths
Birth, childhood upbringing, and one’s early years as an adult shape the character of each of us and Netanyahu and Obama had wildly divergent upbringings and youths.
In a move that further isolates the Ayatollah Khamenie’s mob of miscegentic crotch-droppings of pigs and baboons from the Civilized World, Brittain has closed it embassy in Iran in response to the Ayatollahs’ Basij-e Mostaz’afin’s sacking of that embassy. Other European nations plan to follow suit.
It’s more than a little heartening to see that England and the European powers have finally learned that there’s nothing for humans to gain by trying to talk to the vermin in Iran. It seemed that they were never going to learn that discourse with these creatures is pointless, merely casting pearls before swine and inflating the Iranians’ delusion of worth.
Goodnight, Iran. Pray Mankind decides to suffer your awakening in some future morning.
The phrase, “military options have been on the table and remain on the table,” or any variant thereof have long been considered by many as “code speak” for such “options” being in fact the course of action that would be undertaken to resolve a conflict. This is an assumption that is not truly warranted, especially in this modern age of instant information and data dissemination.
So when President Obama’s Chairman of the Joints Chiefs, Admiral Mike Mullen says that the US military has plans for carrying out military operations against Iran if that rogue Muslim state doesn’t desist in its efforts to develop nuclear weapons little, if anything, should be read into the statement.
The U.S. military has a plan to attack Iran, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff said Sunday, although he thinks a military strike is probably a bad idea.
Not long after Adm. Mike Mullen’s aired on a Sunday talk show, the deputy chief of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard was quoted as saying there would be a strong Iranian response should the U.S. take military action against his country.
Mullen, the highest ranking U.S. military officer, often has warned that a strike on Iran would have serious and unpredictable ripple effects around the Middle East. At the same time, Mullen said the risk of Iran’s developing a nuclear weapon is unacceptable, although he would not say which risk he thinks is worse.
“I think the military options have been on the table and remain on the table,” Mullen said on “Meet the Press” on NBC. “It’s one of the options that the president has. Again, I hope we don’t get to that, but it’s an important option and it’s one that’s well understood.”
Does anyone truly think that President Obama will attack Iran? Even if he were to be presented with incontrovertible facts that Khamenei and Ahmadinejad were developing – or had already developed – nuclear weaponry it is beyond unlikely that he would respond with other than words and, perhaps, a few more ineffectual sanctions requests.
This is just the US Military stating that they have this unlikely contingency covered and have a plan for executing such an order if given by President Obama or the US Congress. It means nothing in the course of events.
Most people in the Civilized World have been shocked and confused by the puppet ruler of Iran, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s repeated public claims that the Holocaust never happened. Fortunately we now have enough evidence to put forth a theory on the matter.
Ahmadinejad’s New Beer Goggles Let Him Not See The Holocaust
I bet his new Beer Goggles 2.0 also let him look at history and not see what 300 Spartans, 700 Thespians, and 400 Thebans did to 100,000 or more of his Persian ancestors at the Battle of Thermopylae. 😉
I wonder though if Ahmadinejad’s new goggles let him see a future where Iran isn’t a blackened and shattered wasteland and the ragged, pathetic, and diseased remnants of its people aren’t scattered around refugee camps living off the largess of other nations.
