Khamenei Frightening Regret of Nazi Defeat

 

Iranian Supreme Leader and Grand Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Hosseini Khamenei in a speech on September 18, 2016, while denouncing President Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani calling for more investment in the economy rather than increasing military spending also made commentary which was far more disturbing. Khamenei lamented the results of World War II and insisted that military spending continue to be the highest priority even if the people are made to suffer economic hardships as Iran must not suffer the same fate which was the fate of Nazi Germany and Imperial Japan. What makes this all the more threatening is for Iran to suffer such a fate would require their placing themselves in a similar situation threatening other nations to the point where warfare is thrust upon much of the world in a determined effort to resist the threat of world conquest be a single minded nation led by people determined to commit genocidal cleansing of the world of all who are not subservient to them and their philosophy, or in the case of Iran, surrendered to Islam, and that would be Shia Islam. Khamenei was disturbed by the forcing of Germany and Japan into submission and forced to be disarmed which was, according to the Supreme Leader, a humiliation which Iran must never be made to suffer. Khamenei lauded the IRGC (Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps) as the key to the success and completion of the Islamic revolution which was started in Iran in 1979 and is expected to enforce the Quranic call to conquer the world for Allah. This was the cause which Grand Ayatollah Sayyid Ruhollah Mūsavi Khomeini set as the purpose of all efforts and dedications of the Iranian people onto perpetuity. Khamenei has reinvested Iran in the dreams and goals set forth by Khomeini thus making more than their names sounding so similar as so is their dedication to the supremacy of Iran and Shia Islam.

For most nations to be led by a dictatorial leader with dreams of world conquest there would not be any serious concern as it is unlikely that they could build sufficient military to potentially pose such a risk. Muammar Gaddafi often made speeches telling his people that their suffering would be alleviated once they defeated the nations oppressing them and denying them their rightful place as leaders ruling over much or all the Earth depending on his feelings of bravado on any given day. After pushing his terrorist sponsoring too far he faced a severe kick in the ego from the United States when President Reagan struck Libya responding to a Libyan terrorist strike on the “La Belle” nightclub in West Berlin which killed three people including one American Serviceman. The American and allies response came on April 15, 1986, in the early morning hours striking numerous targets throughout Libya including the Bab al-Azizia barracks, Murat Sidi Bilal camp, Tripoli military airfield, Benina military airfield, the air defense networks in Benghazi and Tripoli and Muammar Gaddafi’s house in an attempt to kill the dictator himself. Muammar Gaddafi, with his family, rushed out of their residence in the Bab al-Azizia compound just before the bombs dropped. The warning phone call came from Italian Prime Minister Bettino Craxi. Among the estimated sixty killed was one infant girl who was used as an attempt to vilify the American raid. Her name was Hannah and she was displayed before Western reporters with the claim she was the recently adopted daughter of Muammar Gaddafi. All things considered, this raid ended any claims from Muammar Gaddafi of Libya being a world leader and destined to lead the entirety of the world. Libya was never actually a threat to attempt world conquest and that claim was made to excuse a retrograde economy and the suffering of the population from the failed economic state. Iran has sufficient oil which as long as the price per barrel remains above approximately $50 to $75 Iran makes a profit from a percentage to all of their wells as their oil is thick and of poor quality thus costing more to draw from the ground. This is part, if not most of the reason for Saudi Arabia pumping out close to full capacity oil production to force the price per barrel below that $50 price. This has the additional effect of starving Russia from large oil profits and makes American fracking no longer cost effective thus having a deleterious effect on every oil producing nation with whom the Saudi Arabian Royals are having difficulties.

 

Still, Iran is currently cash flush thanks to the JCPOA (Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action), better known as the Iran P5+1 Nuclear Deal, plus other additional payments made by the Obama Administration with a reported four-hundred-million dollar payment for presumably a broken arms deal with the Shah and definitely not a ransom for the released four American hostages. But wait, there is rumored to be more as that four-hundred-million dollar payment for the arms deal has been rumored to have been followed by another payment more than three times that size; a staggering one-point-three-billion dollars claimed to be interest of the original payment. As this payment was delivered in a secret aircraft delivery in actual American cash, thousands of hundred or even thousand dollar bills, hard currency, something unimaginable but somehow true. One can only wonder whether President Obama is going to further finance the military build-up before leaving office, and if so, how much more will he send? Additionally, even by the assessment of President Obama himself, the Iran nuclear deal will allow Iran to be within a few months of attaining nuclear weapons status after the ten year deal expires and there will be nothing to prevent Iran from building a nuclear stockpile challenging that of the United States within a year or soon thereafter once the deal has expired. But don’t worry, Iran will have calmed in that time and will no longer be set on world conquest in a decade or so. Just because Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei just declared the need for Iran to be so militarily powerful that should they set out to conquer the world they will not end as did Nazi Germany or Imperial Japan and be humbled in failure a full thirty-seven years since the 1979 revolution when the military path was first set upon. Sure, of course Iran will be a happy and cooperative nation in a decade or two, sure they will, right? Well, time will tell.

 

Still, one has to understand that Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei is seventy-seven years of age and in unknown health as such is a very secretive piece of information. Besides that, in a decade he will be eighty-seven (higher math skills paying off) and even with good health that is an advanced age. There is a possibility that he will have stepped down and a new Supreme Leader and Grand Ayatollah have been selected by the Assembly of Experts (aka Council of Experts) and now setting the direction of Iran. There could be a turn around and the next Grand Ayatollah and Supreme Leader will decide that the economy and the lives of the people are far more important than the destruction of the Great Satan (United States), the Little Satan (Israel) and/or the Wahabbist menace of Saudi Arabia. You doubt this? But President Obama has set the hopes of the free world on Iran becoming another nation happy to be a member of the community of nations and live in harmony with the rest of the world including those mentioned above. Come to think about it, you are probably right and things will probably get dicey. How dicey will depend on what the rest of the world does and the outcome of the Islamic infusion into the Western World and whether they assimilate or set on conquest, and the reaction to whichever path is chosen. The leadership in the Western World and beyond over the next decade or two will be very important and revealing on the importance for the continued freedoms of the developed Western World. Why am I so seriously concerned over this outlook?

Netanyahu Equivalence Statement, Compare and Contrast ISIS and Iran

 

Prime Minister Netanyahu made a reference in his speech which might have been overlooked by some but was as important as any other commentary he made about Iran. This reference might also have been overlooked as Iran has taken the lead and once again President Obama is leading from behind, or better put, withdrawing from the fore and soon to disappear altogether. The statement made by Prime Minister Netanyahu warned that there is more than one Islamic group whose goal is world conquest and as hard as we were fighting one, the world needs to have the same resolve fighting the other. The other threat was ISIS which he termed an equal threat as is Iran and the only difference between Iran and ISIS is the form or kind of Islam each represent which also explains why both find the other intolerable. ISIS represents Sunni Islam while Iran is the leader of Shiite Islam. Each group sees the other as their mortal enemy as they believe the others to be apostates and as such to be the worst of the worst peoples on the planet and deserving of immediate death as they profane the words of the Prophet and slander the name of Allah. This is part of the reason that Iran had stepped up to assist the strikes against ISIS and why they are spearheading the actions to destroy ISIS even to the point of arming the Kurdish Militias and flying airstrikes in assistance of their efforts.

 

ISIS has gone further in some ways as has Iran as Iran also is far more pragmatic than ISIS who has retrogressed to the earliest forms of Islam as they held when they first strived to go forth onto conquest of the known world and potentially beyond. This is Islam 101, the most strident and most violent form of Islam and what allowed Islam to burst forth from the Arabian Peninsula on their way to the early conquests across the Middle East and across Northern Africa converting whole tribes and peoples as they continued their conquests. The leaders of ISIS see themselves as the ones to purify Islam and by such complete the world conquest which Mohammad presumably spoke of as inevitable. Of course in order to proceed to conquest of the world, ISIS needs to purify all the lands of Islam and to put to death those who have led their people astray, the apostates. This is why they have spread their seedling of a caliphate into Iraq and have spoken of their intentions of removing every dictator of the current Islamic nations such as the Saudi Royal Family and every other nation with leaders chosen by elections or by means other than to complete world conquest. Thus far ISIS has seen none other than themselves worthy of being inheritors of the title of Caliph which is partly why Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi has claimed the title of Caliph and led his followers. There are other groups throughout the Muslim world who claim to have similar goals which Prime Minister Netanyahu might have also listed with such a goal with the most obvious to Israel being Hamas who has in its founding charter the aim of spreading Islam across the globe while concurrently killing the Jews wherever they might be found. Whereas Hezballah has also made similar statement about slaughtering the Jews worldwide, despite commentary by Nasrallah who expressed his hopes for all the Jews to return to Israel such that it would make their murdering every Jew that much easier. But Hezballah need not worry if their goals are honorable enough as their worship being Shiite Islam and not Sunni Islam.

 

In the end, despite the near uncountable numbers of sects of Islam, there must only be one single form of Islam and Iran and ISIS are on opposite ends. This similar but opposing goal by ISIS and Iran is to conquer all the Muslim lands bringing them under one ruler and thus reestablishing the Caliphate as well as establishing one single form of Islam with ISIS enforcing Sunni and Iran enforcing Shia Islam. Hamas would have the identical world view as does ISIS all the way down to enforcing Sunni Islam as the sole true religion, they just have different starting points, Hamas desires killing the Jewish in the Islamic lands first and then reuniting the Muslim world under one true form of Islam, Sunni, while ISIS desires reuniting the lands of Islam first and purifying them to strident Sunni Islam before anything else. ISIS might even see Hamas efforts to be amongst the most sacred as they are striving to reclaim lands which were previously ruled by Islam through the conquest of Israel and the replacing of the infidel governance with Sunni Islam. The other difference that might exist between ISIS and Hamas is whether the Caliph has actually returned, let alone that the Caliph is Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. One might think that Hamas would name Haniyeh or Marshal as the new Caliph before choosing to recognize al-Baghdadi as filling that role. No matter how such differences may be resolved, that is of little concern when the main concern is the end of either as a threat to society, and as such recognizing the dangers posed by each and not continuing ignoring the threats by one or either group.

 

The most obvious reasoning behind Prime Minister Netanyahu in pressing the similarities in the goals of ISIS and Hamas was to symbolize the dangers posed by Iran just as much as to point out that there were two overt threats currently vying for supremacy and that both posed an equal threat to the Western world. He also wanted to point to the fact that the Western world has marshalled together an offensive against one group, ISIS, and at the same time was coddling the nuclear threat the other was aspiring to attain to use against the Western world in a future confrontation. The pressing importance which has been placed at combating ISIS before they gain control over more areas, take additional military air bases and eventually sufficient airpower to pose an additional threat in the air as they currently pose on the ground was just as important as preventing Iran from attaining nuclear weapons now or ten years from now or ever as long as they retain their current leadership. Prime Minister Netanyahu stressed that simply making a deal which has the Iranians agreeing to put off their production of nuclear weapons for some ten years was as insane an idea as it was an inane idea. First off, Prime Minister Netanyahu listed that expecting Iran to subject themselves to inspections even by the IAEA which they had circumvented, limited, abrogated and simply refused permission to inspect areas which were of upmost urgency and importance such as the military base at Parchin where it is feared the work on the nuclear trigger device was carried out and where there has been much removal and additional replacement of soil and now the construction of buildings over the site which housed this vital research all simply to make the site useless to inspectors which have been deterred and may not even be permitted entry after all the scrubbing has been completed. Such a nuclear trigger mechanism is important and must be perfected to a certain degree of perfection in order to initiate nuclear fission in an atomic bomb and is of even more critical importance to be refined to perfection if to be used to detonate a thermo-nuclear bomb, a hydrogen fusion device; the latter providing an exponential level of power per warhead.

 

Iran has been given sufficient free range in their nuclear program for too long already and definitely should have the desired technology for fashioning a nuclear bomb and potentially a thermo-nuclear bomb should they desire such. Once they reach such a level of proficiency, they will have attained a level of invulnerability for their respective terror forces such as IRGC (Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps), Hezballah, the Houthis in Yemen and whatever others they may have such as those who are trained at the tri-border region camps in South America and who have been instrumental in the terror attacks over the years in Argentina. Not only would the possession of nuclear weapons be sufficient a threat, but the addition of a tested single stage intercontinental rocket would give Iran global reach with which to threaten anyone anywhere they desired to do so be it Washington D.C. or be it Hollywood or anywhere in between. Such an umbrella would facilitate Iran having a free hand to redraw the borders throughout the Middle East and across northern Africa before anybody would view their actions as threatening to the Western nations or beyond the Muslim world. This might even be true should Iran move against Israel that the Western world would forget all of their promises, letters of support and especially their protestations over the years claiming to be the protectors of Israel should such be necessitated by actions in the Middle East. In the United States it would be wise to recall what President Obama had written in his biographical book “The Audacity of Hope” on page 261 where it states, “I will stand with the (Muslims) should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.” One might see a case of open hostilities between Israel and the Iranian proxies of Hezballah and Hamas possibly using fronts out of Syria threatening the Golan Heights as the political winds shifting in an ugly direction. Such would be even more valid should such an outbreak be used by Iran to break off negotiations to limiting their nuclear arsenal now that it had been established they possessed nuclear weapons. Such might now looking at the picture being painted by the Obama administration and the rose tinted glasses blinded media seem impossible as the negotiations of the P5+1 and Iran are still being portrayed as being pursued to prevent Iran from attaining nuclear weapons, but such may very soon become the new core hopes of these very same negotiations should Iran have shielded from detection a parallel enrichment and weaponizing productions facilities and already have a number of such weapons and they simply come clean and announce their membership in the nuclear armed camp of nations.

 

The truth was expressed by Prime Minister Netanyahu, and may have even been kind in his analysis of the Iranian threat, by comparing it as equivalent to the threat posed by ISIS. The two main differences between ISIS and Iran in the threat department are that Iran is a far more complete and far-reaching threat than ISIS could even dream of becoming and that Iran has lulled the world back to sleep from the horrified and panicked state of mind the Western world had entertained during the four-hundred-forty-four days standoff that the United States Embassy personnel were held hostage. This has been achieved not so much as by not posing any real and measurable threats as the Iranians have since then enjoined Syria and Lebanon into their fold, murdered United States Marines in their barracks in Lebanon, assaulted the United States Embassies in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania and Nairobi, Kenya, the assaults on the Israeli Embassy and later on the AMIA (Argentine Israelite Mutual Association) in Buenos Aires, Argentina and numerous other such attacks some of which have never been traced to a source, let alone all the way back to Iran. Iran has managed to place sufficient levels between their sponsoring and even ordering such assaults and the actual peoples actually committing these assaults that they are seldom found out. There have been numerous suspicions that the Iranians have had a hand in many of the most heinous attacks of innocent civilians around the world that should even a small percentage of such rumors be true then Iran is easily the danger which Prime Minister Netanyahu painted them to be and is equally at least the level of threat to the world as he stated.

 

Just imagine the freedom terrorist groups backed by Iran will have to be able to foment horrific terror tolls of human lives without any fear of retribution or even pursuit by law enforcement as Iran will threaten the capital of any nations which try to oppose their terror assaults. It may even get to the point where any terrorist attack would simply be completely ignored even more than today’s habit of laying the blame for near every terror attack on Lone Wolves or mentally unstable individuals and not attempting to find the root origins behind these attacks as to do so would upset the government’s ability to simply find the actual perpetrators of the terror attack and that ending any investigations. This lack of will to trace these deadly attacks back to their initiating origins has allowed Iran and others to escape being held to task for their involvement or even their instigating, planning, supplying expertise, providing materials such as explosives, granting funding and even choosing targets and time for each attack. Prime Minister Netanyahu is in what is probably the best position of any world leader for knowing and understanding the role played by Iran in these nefarious acts around the globe and especially in the Middle East. As an Israeli he is especially tuned to knowing what actions are terrorist related and which merely are criminal enterprise attacks such as turf wars. With his ability to access intelligence agencies whose sole definitions are to trace terrorist actions to their sources as well as to monitor such sources in order to intercept terror actions before they spring their deadly attacks on innocent civilians the Prime Minister is privileged to view the entirety of the web that encompasses all the terror entities from their sources across the Middle East and beyond to the individual terrorists who are called upon to act in this war between cultures. Prime Minister Netanyahu in his recent speech pointed out the truth that Iran is behind far more nefarious acts that many are aware. Even the recent assassination of the Argentine prosecutor Alberto Nisman who had been investigating the AMIA terror attack and had traced the sources back to Iran and even to particular Iranians who currently hold high positions within the Iranian government and had previously served as officers in the IRGC from whence came their involvement in the Argentine attacks on Jewish sites on Buenos Aires. That also was instructive in depicting the length of the Iranian terror tentacles that Iran was able to assassinate an Argentine prosecutor in his home the night before he was to report to the Argentine Parliament his findings which very well would reveal the involvement not only of high ranking Argentine politicians but also highly placed Iranian politicians and military personnel and the web of connections which reached from Iran to the tri-border region and then into Argentina. Such revelations would also bring to the fore the ties Iran holds with Mexican drug cartels which provides Iranian IRGC terror personnel access to routs into the United States across the southern border and terror techniques training for the drug cartels’ militias making them far more effective in their war with the government and with local peoples in their immediate region. Such revelations were to be protected from becoming public so much so that Alberto Nisman had to be prevented from speaking and that was only possible if he was assassinated. Perhaps the reason the assassination waited until the night before he was to witness before the Argentine parliament was due to their hopes that Alberto Nisman could have been persuaded by some means against testifying all the information he had stored in the only safe place he knew was inaccessible to the terrorists, within his own mind, and that is what had to be erased by any means necessary. Since threats and bribery had likely failed, then there was but one other choice and that led to his being murdered and the investigation into his death has mired and apparently had little success and nobody seems to know anything, anything at all. Silence is golden, especially if bought with threats and reward, golden rewards as money is easily traced, gold not so much. Now all that remains is to see the world’s reactions to the Israeli Prime Minister’s address to Congress and if they will draw any conclusions or continue to allow their eyes to be blinded by rose colored glasses.

What has been missing from most analysts’ Middle East reports is that between ISIS and Iran we have, to use a term popular in modern analysis, a perfect storm. Graeme Wood reported on interviews with supporters of ISIS and what was revealed completely contradicted the approach President Obama has taken defining the number one problem driving support for ISIS to be a lack of economic opportunities. What was revealed instead is that they believe they are called by God to create a Caliphate that will ultimately lead to the apocalypse. Essentially, they are a death cult centered around their religion. They stressed their devout and all-encompassing belief that they are following the word of Allah and completing the will of Allah in order to bring on the Islamic version of the End of Days, a scenario very different and in very spectacular ways the opposite of the Christian belief in the End of Days. This is the Sunni Muslim impetus in our time right now to bring a world-wide apocalypse as quickly and completely as they are able and the driving minds behind ISIS are not simpletons but driven people who have displayed great command of technology and have developed, as noted by experts the world over, a highly technical video campaign using some of the latest effects and professional stylistic designs in their video campaign. President Obama and many others have sold the leadership of ISIS short and have grossly underestimated their capabilities.

 

With Iran we have a more well-known entity as we have been able to observe them since their 1979 rise to power in Iran, a rise to power greatly aided by then President Carter who stated that the Ayatollah Sayyid Ruhollah Musavi Khomeini (Farsi: روح الله موسوی خمینی) was a man of the cloth and a decent man with whom the United States could work. President Carter basically equated a devout Shiite Muslim with Christianity and completely ignored the belief that Islam supersessionism means that Islam has replaced both Christianity, which Muslims accept was the supersessionism of Judaism, and as well Judaism and is the final revelation which disallows for any future revelation to be valid. There is a singular problem with both forms of supersessionism that is shared, the reestablishment of the Jewish state of Israel which both Christian and Islamic supersessionism claims is not possible as the Jews have been forsaken and cursed to travel the face of the earth nationless as there no longer exists the Covenant between G0d and Abraham as that Covenant was replaced by the Covenant with Jesus which has in turn according to Islam, was replaced by the Covenant with Mohammad according to each faith. Add to this the Iranian belief in the Twelfth Imam and you have another apocalyptical religious force in Iran.

 

Basically the world is facing two complimentary apocalyptical religious forces both competing for hegemonic preeminence in the Middle East and both having a central desire to extinguish the Jewish state of Israel both believing it to be an abomination to Allah. This comes at a time when the United States has taken a six year hiatus from participating constructively on the world’s stage. But even in remission, the United States is playing a central role in the form of an acquiescing power which will facilitate the nuclearization of Iran. The importance of this action must not be lost in our consideration of the immediate future. The most recent report from the IAEA (International Atomic Energy Agency) paints a very bleak picture and displays the fact that the Western nations, the United Nations and much of the Middle East have at best an extremely opaque and blurred superficial knowledge about the state of the Iranian nuclear weapons program. Their report told more about the obscuration by Iran than it did report on the actual existence of the Iranian program. A basic summary of the report would be to say that the world, and especially the Western nations, has almost no knowledge or understanding of the current abilities, size, scope or technological refinement of the Iranian nuclear weapons program.

 

The last glimpse the world had was almost eighteen months ago and then we were able to get an indication that the Iranians had achieved an advanced centrifuge which was six times as efficient as their previous model and they were very close to perfecting its use. Since then there has been rumors, rumors such that they carried some degree of weight and validity, that the Iranians had made another quantum leap in centrifuge development and designed an even faster and more capable centrifuge design and were in the process of installing these latest designs into their nuclear processing of uranium. The problem is that nowhere in the negotiations or in any IAEA report is there a sign of these centrifuges being installed. This begs a question; where are these latest and greatest centrifuges which we should have noted being installed and if we are unaware of their installation, then where is the uranium refinement being carried out with these newest centrifuges? This is a definitive indication that Iran has developed a secret nuclear enrichment system of installations and who knows what further developments are being carried out in this secretive parallel program. One matter which must be kept foremost in our minds is that the Western nations and the rest of the world have little if any knowledge of the amount of uranium Iran may be mining out of their own uranium mines and whether they have also perfected in the gasification of the uranium to uranium hexafluoride gas (UF6) which is an essential development if Iran is to operate a secretive parallel nuclear program which could only be intended for weapons production. Iran might also be producing fuel rods for their Heavy-water reactor by refining uranium by smelting it into purified UO2 which could be used in the Arak reactor to produce plutonium. All of this is currently well beyond anything of which the IAEA or the Western intelligence agencies appear to have even a hint of understanding. Perhaps Iran really does not care about the negotiations or reaching any deal as their program is far beyond the understood level assumed in the P5+1 negotiations with Iran.

 

Western intelligence has decided that the Iranian nuclear program has not proceeded to develop new and more advanced facilities without reporting of their existence, much as the development of a nuclear trigger at the Parchin Military Complex was completed and all traces including the suspected buildings were completely destroyed and the area cleansed such that any inspection would be hard pressed to find any evidence should they actually gain admission to the area for an inspection. This research was all but completed before the activity at Parchin Military Complex had even been detected and suspicions aroused. Additionally, it was apparent that the actual announcement and the beginning of negotiation with Iran over their nuclear program by the Europeans, which predated the United States entry to the scene, was initiated revealing a complex and expansive nuclear program already in use. It was determined that Iran had been working on enrichment of uranium for very likely at least a decade before being discovered. This lack of reliable intelligence and the ability of the Iranians to conceal their actions from detection bode poorly for any reliable detection of new facilities being constructed. The last installation detected was the refining facility at Fordow, near the city of Qom, in 2012 which was only revealed after it had initiated refinement of uranium. The complex was still being completed but little was known about its level of development as it was constructed underground and beneath a mountain making detection more difficult. The level of complexity and capabilities of the Iranian program most definitely permits the assumption that Iran is capable of constructing a secretive base which is only made a higher probability due to the existence of natural caves which would remove much of the heavy work of building an underground complex within a mountain.

 

Simple truth is there is a potential for Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu’s speech to a joint session of the United States Congress releasing information which will completely destroy any hope of a nuclear deal with Iran short of surrendering to the fact that Iran is, if not already the in the near future, capable of producing nuclear weapons and there is little which can be accomplished through the P5+1 negotiations as Iran has successfully deceived their adversaries lulling them into a false sense of security believing they had a proper assessment of the scope of the Iranian nuclear weapons program. This is the fear which has the White House in a panic. The fact that President Obama may be revealed to know that the negotiations have all been a ruse to stall any actions by the Western nations or Israel to cripple the Iranian nuclear sites with a military strike. The complete single-mindedness of the efforts by President Obama to find a peaceful way of preventing Iran from becoming a nuclear state has been proven by the leaking vital information at the most crucial point of Israeli plans on at least three occasions which completely blew up destroying each attempt by Israel to use military force to destroy as much of the Iranian nuclear sites as they were able. This devious prevention by the White House of any and all efforts by Israel to address the nuclear weapons development sites by use of military force was in part just a further act by President Obama insisting that he can by the power of his voice, the influence of his words, the imposing of his will and the full effect of his karma can alter the world to his designs thus being a world molding power by his will alone. This faulty perception is not challenged by any advisors who remain in the White House and is in fact reinforced by sycophantic devotees surrounding the President. The proof of this has been the near constant parade of Secretaries of Defense where the people in that position receiving briefings which explain the realities including on Iran has frightened them each and every one that they attempted to shake President Obama’s faith in his ego being undeniable on the world stage and his ability by his presence to change realities. As intelligence released to Congress is mostly under the influence, or even control, by the White House, it is possible that the Congress has been denied much of the truth which is unflattering to the President. The fact that President Obama has no way of keeping the truths from Prime Minister Netanyahu and that the Israeli leader is about to upset the President’s apple cart and reveal the core problem which Iran truly poses is something the Ego in the White House cannot countenance as the President will be revealed to not have the fine robes of the Emperor and that the reality is that he is actually standing naked once robbed of his control of information.

 

That leads to how does a nuclear Iran change things and how does ISIS fit into these scenarios. The current understanding is that Iran is fighting against ISIS and is supporting their obedient puppet governments in Iraq, Syria and even Lebanon. Iran is about control, complete control. They see Saudi Arabia and its GCC, Egypt with President Sisi and his anti-terror programs, the United States simply due to its capabilities despite their being muted by the great President in the White House and please ignore the little man behind the curtain scared of being revealed for a fool, and of course Israel as the current power in the Middle East. Iran will still manage to gain the United States President’s accommodations as long as they make their argument appear to be aimed solely at Israel, as sacrifice the White House has already signaled they are more than willing to make. What is being assumed is that Iran would never ally with ISIS because one is Shiite and the other is Sunni and nary the twain shall meet. That assumption is dead wrong as can be proven by Iran and their partnership which has been reestablished with Hamas, a perfect definition of ISIS Lite. Should ISIS further establish their nascent initiatives in Gaza, Judea and Samaria and become preeminent replacing the Palestinian Authority and subsuming Hamas, or at least those of Hamas who are capable of passing their purity test which would still include most of the fighters from both Hamas and Islamic Jihad and potentially others as well, this would make ISIS the terror organization required to attack Israel. The only fly in this ointment is the probability for ISIS to reject any assistance from Iran viewing them as just another enemy and even worse, an apostate enemy. If ISIS instead decided that a temporary alliance with the Devil, Iran, then a bond of mutual objectives may be possible and once these two powers make such an arrangement there may be no preventing the apocalyptical eventuality they both desire. In many ways ISIS would be a better fit with Iran than is Hezballah or Hamas as ISIS shares the view of forcing the End Times through the creation of an apocalyptical war encompassing the entirety of the planet. Facing a nuclear armed Iran willing to share such devices for the obliteration of targets of common hatreds would be the stuff whose aftermath may look very much like many of those post apocalypse B-movies we have seen on late night television.

 

This is why the speech by Prime Minister Netanyahu before the joint session of Congress and his likely follow-up speech at the AIPAC Convention will be of unprecedented importance. One might equate the potential of these two speeches to the speeches given by Winston Churchill at the onset of World War II. What Prime Minister Netanyahu must avoid is belittling President Obama or making any claims that the President has been played for a fool by Iran. Instead Prime Minister Netanyahu must be seen to have constantly praised President Obama while offering him a new approach which will be more in-tune with the current reality and move him tactfully away from the disastrous path he currently walks. This is not the time to air grievances as we all also need the cooperation of President Obama and for him to dedicate at least the airpower and other capabilities of the United States. American boots on the ground can and should be avoided; at least initially as things will need to be assessed as everything develops. The President should be made to forfeit any plans he may be couching for a linking and exchange of ambassadors and opening of embassies with Iran and instead doing what must be done to prevent Iran from attaining their goals. Then the President must understand the level and extent of a threat ISIS has begun to assume and how they are gaining allies. The Congress will also need to understand the urgencies currently loose in the world and free to undermine all that allows for cooperative relations. The world is at the most definitive crossroads that it has ever faced. The price for making the wrong turn at this and the next three or four crossroads, forks in the road, will be the extinction of man as a technological and developing race into simply another steak in the food chain. Yes, it all really is that serious, and dire too. The blinders must come off and the path towards the preservation of our technological way of life through the wise applications of force now rather than waiting for the forces against modernity to throw the first volley, so to speak. Now, let each of us pray, concentrate, or give whatever form of supplication your beliefs may require in times that will test our souls, our civilizations, our freedoms, our development, our integrity as a human being who does have love for his brothers and sisters and knows forgiveness is not always the correct path, sometimes actions are required if we are to correct certain wrongs which plague our world and threaten us and all we hold dear.
