On Going To War With Iran: Let’s Do It!

In its latest kerfuffle, the always friendly, benevolent leader in world humanity, Iran, is embroiled in an alleged plot to assassinate the Saudi Ambassador to the United States within the United States itself.  According to the Obama administration, there is overwhelming proof (and it is hoped and encouraged it will be produced forthwith) for such a plot.  Iran has vehemently denied any such plot, so until that proof is given, we will have to wonder about that “little” incident.

And it was only a few weeks ago when Iran announced it would send war ships to the shores of America, or at least very close to it.  What other reason would there be for this except to provoke America into responding?  And how could, or would, America, respond other than militarily, attacking these ships and blowing them from the water?

And we still have the possible execution of a Muslim turned Christian pastor hanging on our minds, as well as Iran’s nuclear program, still in full throttle (and no end in sight) to contend with.

And Iran never executed its own citizens for being homosexual, because there are no homosexuals in Iran to begin with.

This is exactly what happens when a legitimate madman, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, (he’s even got “mad” in his name) is given absolute power over a country, and is supported by a radical, totalitarian, so called “Supreme Leader” who is just as hateful, anti-Semitic, anti-west, anti-America, bloodthirsty, and hellbent on killing and blowing up people and things for no reason or purpose other than for the amusement of their own demonic egos.

Iran, or at least Ahmadinejad, is betting on America (the Barack Obama Administration) being too weak to confront Iran, too tied up militarily and financially in Iraq and Afghanistan and other parts of the world in its War On Terror, and otherwise politically uninterested, and hampered, in engaging, and challenging, Iran directly, in another major war.  Remember, Obama promised to end these wars and bring out troops home during his 2008 campaign, and not to engage in further wars.  It is supposed the little skirmish in Uganda, for which Obama is sending 100 troops on a mission to kill Christians, does not constitute a war.

What other logical conclusion can be drawn from Iran’s irrational behavior?

For too many years Iran has been allowed to flex muscle it never had.  And now, because Barack Obama is politically weak and vulnerable (and his administration is under scrutiny), because of an otherwise small group of anti-capitalist protesters around America causing trouble and mayhem (their bark is louder than their bite), because our economy is as weak as it is, with talk of a double dip recession, Iran sees an opportunity to exploit all these weaknesses, counting on Obama’s inexperience being his undoing.  And while Obama is indeed inexperienced in so many ways, American still has the greatest military force, the greatest military might, in the world.  Enough power, regardless of Obama’s inexperience, to stop Iran and put it back in its lonely, isolated place.  But that is only if we use that power we have.

Iran is banking on the idea we won’t.

We must call Iran’s bluff, once and for all.  If Iran is stupid enough to actually send war ships to the shores of America, it must be considered as an act of war itself and we must not flinch, we must not balk, we must not stall.  If Iran wants the war, or even if it doesn’t; if Iran is merely “testing” America’s military and political resolve – we cannot waver.  Blow the bloody ships out of the water, and then go after its nuclear program and blow that up too.  If Iran still wants to continue to agitate America, we can find more targets within Iran to obliterate, including Ahmadinejad himself and his “Supreme Leader”.

Sometimes we have to give war a chance in order to secure peace.  We can no longer continue treating Iran as an idle threat.  They are not, nor can that be considered at this point, especially when Russia is supplying them with serious weapons.

The Middle East is imploding on itself; the Arab parts at any rate.  Libya, Egypt, Yemen, even Syria have, or are, all seeing internal uprisings.  For better or worse, the end results of these uprisings will dictate how the Middle East will look in the near future.  If even more radical, anti-Semitic, anti-American groups come to power in these countries, and we wait to do anything about it, or don’t do anything about it at all; if America cannot, will not, conquer this madness now; if we allow them to coalesce into a unifying force, what, or who, will stop them from realizing their vision of a Middle East free of Israel and Jews?  What, or who, will stop them from attacking all of America’s interests?

By going after, and defeating Iran, now, we can show these countries that America still has military resolve, and that we are not afraid to use it.  That we will use again, and again.

If we don’t, Iran, Syria, even Russia and China, any other country with its eyes set on defeating, or at least weakening, America’s military might in the world, will see America has no resolve, political or otherwise, to engage in war.  And as a result, these countries will begin flexing their own muscle.  Aside from Syria, Russia and China do have muscle to flex.  And as bad as it is to be weak in the eyes of smallish countries like Iran and Syria, it is far worse, far graver, with deeper and more profound ramifications, to be weak in the eyes of real military might such as Russia and China.

What becomes of America when that happens?

    We’ll have to get China to loan us the money for the war since you right-wingers don’t want to pay for anything.

      You are absolutely right in that we ought not to rely on China so heavily for loans. So far as not “wanting to pay for anything”, this is more liberal nonsense. Conservatives want all Americans to have the opportunity and luxury to pay taxes – a fair share, and to help fund the wars we engage in. We can’t do that with 17 million of us out of work, and taxes so high on everyone else who actually are paying taxes that the revenue generated now is not as much as it would be if taxes, and the rate of taxation, was both lower and more competitive.

      Taxes are the lowest they’ve been in 50 years.

      • October 16, 2011 at 1:10 pm | #4

        We went from a 90% tax rate to a 70% tax rate, and then a near 30% tax rate under Reagan, and followed that with twenty of years fluctuating tax rates in-between 30% and near 40%. We have a lot of “wiggle” room to dramatically lower the tax rate, abolish other taxes and put more money in the hands of tax payers. The fact that taxes are “lower than in fifty years” is irrelevant when we have a congress that is as fiscally irresponsible as it is with the tax revenue it collects. We can, and we will, do better the lower taxes are, and the lower the tax rate is overall.

          We can, and we will, do better the lower taxes are, and the lower the tax rate is overall.

          There’s not one shred of evidence that lowering taxes will stimulate the economy. Bush lowered taxes and we had flat hiring. Reagan lowered taxes and we had 10.8% unemployment. Both of them are the main contributors to our enormous debt.

            There’s not one shred of evidence that lowering taxes will stimulate the economy. Bush lowered taxes and we had flat hiring. Reagan lowered taxes and we had 10.8% unemployment. Both of them are the main contributors to our enormous debt.

            The enormous debt is a result of devastating fiscal irresponsibility, mostly by Democrats, but also some Republicans over the past two or three decades, and especially since Obama took office. When Reagan cut the tax rate from 70% down to 28% within a few years we had an economic boom that lasted through the Clinton Administration, and only began to take a turn for the worse after 9-11. Remember Yuppies? They are the product of Reagan’s tax cuts. So is the 90′s. 9-11, the 2006 Democrat take over of both the House and Senate and the 2008 election of Barack Obama, and their fiscal raping of America is why we have 9.1% unemployment, millions of people out of work and on federal unemployment insurance for 99 bloody weeks, almost 47 million Americans on food stamps and nearly half of all Americans on some type of government support system. Cut the bloody taxes, the tax rate and balance the budget, or at least make a genuine effort to cut back and reduce overall spending. Do those things, at least, and some amount of normalcy will return to the economy, business will expand, more jobs – and tax payers – will be created, less people will be out of work and on federal assistance of some sort. Be even more aggressive and we can put even more people back to work. But raise taxes on the so called “filthy rich” and more jobs will be lost, more businesses will go under and more people will find it necessary to become dependent on government. And by then, will government even have the means to support them? Because it sure as hell doesn’t now.

            Like I said, there’s not a shred of evidence to support your beliefs. You’re brainwashed into thinking that the tax cuts worked and you lie to defend these policies that have destroyed our economy. You right-wingers are as radical as they come.

            • October 17, 2011 at 10:27 am | #8

              The evidence for cutting taxes is well documented. It’s liberalism and liberals that have destroyed our economy, from the federal level all the way down to the local level, through high taxation, regulation, bigger government and more and more social programs expanding into areas the federal government was never designed or intended to handle – and through fiscal irresponsibility. As of yet, you have not provided any evidence that raising taxes works.

    We really shouldn’t start a war on Iran unless they do something physically to the USA. America does not need another war, and there is NO guarantee that we will win. I would not call Iraq or Afghanistan winning. If we disposed of the leaders, then why are we still there? The same would happen in mightier Iran.

    • October 17, 2011 at 5:29 pm | #10

      The fact that they would bring their war ships to our shores is enough to act upon. If we do nothing, other rogue nations will follow Iran’s suit, putting American lives in greater danger from terrorists bent on the destruction of America, who will now be emboldened by an America that will not stand up to them. Remember, Iran was to execute a Muslim turned Christian pastor for no other reason than converting from Islam to Christianity. Disposing of (killing) their leaders does not mean stabilization in the area, but it sends a clear message that we are willing to go to these lengths to protect America and American interests. America certainly does not need another war, which is why we wonder why Obama is sending 100 troops into Uganda to kill Christian soldiers.
