This week Mr. Barack Hussein Obama revealed that he had a conversation with the president of Iran. This was contrary to the many years of precedent set by both Democratic and Republican presidents. There has to be a reason for this position taken by these men who served their country as Commander and Chief. What possible good could come from becoming bedfellows with this devil? What certain bad has already come from the succession of leaders over Iran?
1. Many Americans still remember when the Iranian terrorists took hostages at the American Embassy and held them for 444 days. When Democrat President Carter so drastically cut the finances of the D.O.D., the U.S. military’s ability was minimal. In an attempt to rescue the hostages, a helicopter crashed on Iranian soil and American lives were lost.
2. There is no doubt that Iran had some background relationship with al-Qaeda in the workings of the 9/11 attack on New York City. There is a large tie among Middle Eastern nations against the United States. Nations appear to be passive and some are belligerent, but all of them would do away with America and turn it into a new nation of Islam.
3. Christians, Jews, and Bahia’ believers have suffered further persecution by the government. Killing of innocent people has no excuse. Yet this is the history of Iran and Mr. Obama broke all protocol, not to deal with terrorists, and talked directly to his counterpart. Are the lives of these hundreds, and probably thousands, of people of no consequence?
4. England, France, and Russia are a sufficient example of self-deception. They, too, played with the devil, only his name was Hitler. Because of their own blindfolds sewn from the cloth of naiveté, they suffered greatly. Please say this is not happening to America!
America’s military has for a long time been misused and unappreciated by a succession of presidents who have not known the difference between peace by strength and gambling through arbitration. Mr. Obama’s intentions seem like that of Jabez Stone when he sold his soul to the devil as told in the story of The Devil and Daniel Webster. Mr. Scratch (the devil) would not compromise. Mr. Obama, you have no Daniel Webster.
