Iran Backs Obama

Published by at 10:01 am under 2008 Elections,All General Discussions

Wow – kiss Obama’s chances for election good-bye. So far the socialist appeaser has the endorsements of Hamas, Daniel Ortega, Cuba and other nefarious and anti-American nut cases and organizations. But Obama has captured the big enchilada by gaining the support of the Mad Mullahs of Iran who still claim they are at war with the Great Satan, America. H/T McClatchy Watch

Iran’s foreign minister said Friday that the United States should conduct a “serious review” of its foreign policy after the presidential election — a signal that Iran is leaving open the possibility of improved relations with Washington.

“We don’t want to make a problem for the American presidential candidates, but this election is among a limited number of American presidential elections where foreign policy plays a key role,” Mottaki said a day after a U.N. conference on Iraqi reconstruction held outside Stockholm.

“The American people need change,” he added.

Mottaki did not go deeper into Iran’s impressions of the remaining candidates seeking the White House. But Barack Obama has expressed a willingness to open new channels with Iran — a position that has drawn fire from Republican John McCain and Obama’s Democratic rival Hillary Rodham Clinton.

Between Pelosi’s efforts to give Iran credit for securing Iraq (though somehow missing all the funds, training and arms used to kill Americans) and Iran’s hope Obama can save them from humiliating defeat in the region it is clear we may have a modern Neville Chamberlain running for President against a modern Winston Churchill type in McCain. If we learned anything from history it is avoid the appeasers, they bring death and destruction in the wake of their childish naiveté.

In June Churchill called for the creation of a Triple Affiance between Britain, France and Russia but he gradually became convinced that the major impediment was the lack of will to resist Germany. But he did not believe that the Government weakness represented the British people. When he overheard the American Ambassador, Joseph Kennedy, predict that Britain would have to negotiate with Hitler or face defeat, Churchill told the American columnist Walter Lippmann, “. . . I for one would willingly lay down my life in combat, rather than, in fear of defeat, surrender to the menaces of these most sinister men. It will then be for you, for the Americans, to preserve and to maintain the great heritage of the English-speaking peoples. . . . “

History has an interesting sense of irony when we realize it was a liberal Kennedy who once called for Britain to surrender to Hitler instead of fight for freedom.

    I am still convinced, left wing news media, CNN and MSNBC aside, the American DNA is forward leaning and thinking, we are winners, we want others to have the blessings of freedom and democracy because we know that through freedom and democracy human potential can reach ever greater heights. We are a generous, thoughtful and kind people. I’m not sure Obama shares this view. The bad guys think that electing a guy who is sympathetic with them seriously underestimates the American people. They did after 911!

    How many other ruthless dictators are there left to endorse this sucker? I believe he has all the main ones. If this doesn’t tell the electorate something they are hopeless. They endorse him because he comes across as hopelessly naive and they think they can manipulate him. Either that or he is in their pockets already. I don’t know which one but in either case he should never be elected president.

    It’s interesting that you closed the article with a reference to Great Britian.

    This is one of the threats that Iran has made:

    The [Iranians] President’s chief strategist, Hassan Abbassi, has come up with a war plan based on the premise that “Britain is the mother of all evils” – the evils being America, Australia, New Zealand, Israel, the Gulf states and even Canada, all of whom are the malign progeny of the British Empire. “We have a strategy drawn up for the destruction of Anglo-Saxon civilization,” says Mr Abbassi. “There are 29 sensitive sites in the U.S. and in the West. We have already spied on these sites and we know how we are going to attack them… Once we have defeated the Anglo-Saxons the rest will run for cover.”

    Where is that quote from, Vince? I would like to save it with the original source. 🙂

    The Left has incredible grandiosity regarding the terrorists….and romantic notions about them, imho. And they definitely have an issue with their own aggression, ie they won’t claim it and therefore it has become their “shadow”…acting out all over the place.

    Positive aggression has saved western civilization on numerous occasions. It is a useful tool to have in one’s “toolbox”. But the Left has placed shame on it. Sad.

    And regarding the Iraqi’s and all who are now TRUSTING America to help them get freedom, I love this by Helen Gordon (partial transcript):

    “God Gave You a Dream”

    “You have a dream, an urging to express yourself. Hold on to it for the dream is God’s idea eager to be expressed through you. It is God’s choice through you the idea should be fulfilled. God gave you the idea with a restlessness to live it and with the tools, passion and joy to see it through full manifestation. Through this idea, the grace of God is experienced within all who come in contact with it. ”

    I believe that George W. Bush has been fulfilling the dream given to him…on behalf of all those who suffer from tyrants and dictators and thugs and murderers as “rulers”. And for it he has been persecuted unmercifully, which, only proves to me the profound importance of the fulfillment of the dream.

    G_d bless you, George W. Bush. We owe you lifetimes of gratitude for your obedience to the “dream for you”.
