The free world is without a leader. Obama is silly and dangerous, incapable or unwilling to take a brave, principled stance in defense of freedom and our allies. The forces of evil smell blood, and they are going in for the kill. A world without America's forceful presence is descending into chaos and havoc.
The sheer brutality of the mullahcracy's crackdown on the Iranian people who in 2009 were marching for freedom, for the principle of one man, one vote, was impossible for us in the West to fathom. We heard the horror stories. We saw unarmed people meeting bullets with sheer will.
But the Iranians could not win. Barack Obama made sure of that. Full Atlas coverage here.
We watched the President of the United States essentially sanction the crushing suppression of people who were yearning to be free by ignoring their plight. We witnessed the President of the United States look the other way while Iranian thugs committed acts of mass rape, torture and public hangings of innocent people. All that and more was done by an Islamic regime that President Obama demands that we respect.
Appealing to Iran in March 2009, Obama said: “We seek … engagement that is honest and grounded in mutual respect.” On November 4, 2009, the 30th anniversary of the takeover of the U.S. Embassy in Tehran and the beginning of the Iranian hostage crisis, Obama said: “I have made it clear that the United States of America wants to move beyond this past, and seeks a relationship with the Islamic Republic of Iran based upon mutual interests and mutual respect.”
This is how the mullahs respond to Obama's weakness.
Iran calls Wall Street protests 'American Spring' Associated Press October 9, 2011
TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — An Iranian military commander said Sunday that the protests spreading from New York's Wall Street to other U.S. cities are the beginning of an "American Spring," likening them to the uprisings that toppled Arab autocrats in the Middle East.
Gen. Masoud Jazayeri of Iran's Revolutionary Guard said the protests against corporate greed and the gap between rich and poor are a revolution in the making that will topple what he called the Western capitalist system....
Jazayeri said President Barack Obama's election promises of change have reached a dead end.
"The failure of the U.S. president to resolve the Wall Street crisis will turn this economic movement into a political and social movement protesting the very structure of the U.S. government," the official IRNA news agency quoted Jazayeri as saying Sunday.
"A revolution and a comprehensive movement against corruption in the U.S. is in the making. The last phase will be the collapse of the Western capitalist system," he said, according to IRNA.
