We can’t attack Iran because they would win. According to this report from NewsMax, Iran has 100 ships to fight against each one of ours. If they get nuclear weapons, there would be no stopping them. How’s that for a reality check?
According to a recent NewsMax.com report (http://www.newsmax.com/Headline/hayden-iran-cia-strike-likely-homegrown-terrorism/2010/07/25/id/365566?s=al&promo_code=A58A-1), Israel and the United States feel that Iran is getting to a point where their going ahead with nuclear weapons needs to be stopped since nothing else stops them./
Michael Hayden, a CIA chief under President George W. Bush, said that during his tenure “a strike was way down the list of options.” But he tells CNN’s State of the Union that such action now “seems inexorable.”
“In my personal thinking,” Hayden said, “I have begun to consider that that may not be the worst of all possible outcomes.”
Hayden said that the likelihood of a U.S. strike on Iran has risen in the face of Tehran’s defiance to halt its contentions nuclear program, saying “We engage. They continue to move forward.”
“We vote for sanctions. They continue to move forward. We try to deter, to dissuade. They continue to move forward,” he added.
The former CIA chief predicted Iran, in defiance of the international community, planned to “get itself to that step right below a nuclear weapon, that permanent breakout stage, so the needle isn’t quite in the red for the international community.”
Hayden said that reaching even that level would be “as destabilizing to the region as actually having a weapon.”
Hayden also called homegrown terrorism “a devil of a problem” and the most serious threat facing American citizens. “In a democracy it’s incredibly difficult,” he said. “Look, we’ve all made our compromises with al-Qaeda and the al-Qaeda kinds of attacks.
“But how do you build a security structure that guards you against American citizens who are beginning to change in their thinking up to a point where they become a threat to the security of other Americans? That’s a devil of a problem.”
Hayden said that the next step the intelligence community would take to combat homegrown terrorists would inevitably begin to infringe on the privacy of Americans, and that was still too steep of a price to pay.”
However, the problem concerning Hayden most, is the Iranian threat. The United States, the United Nations and the European Union imposed new restrictions on Iran because of their nuclear enrichment activities, but they continue to move forward with their nuclear ambitions. Of course, this increases the West fears that enrichment could lead to a bomb. Iran has made it clear that they want to destroy Israel. Also, we know Iran’s President dislikes America and the West.
NewsMax.com reported that “The fourth round of U.N. sanctions calls for measures against new Iranian banks abroad if a link to the nuclear or missile programs is suspected and for vigilance on transactions with any Iranian bank, including the central bank.
On Saturday, several key Iranian officials estimated that the United States and Israel would not dare attempt a military strike of Iran’s nuclear sites, adding that they were confident that Iranian forces would easily repel such an attempt, the Israeli newspaper Haaretz reported.”
The United States has ships in the Persian Gulf but they would not be effective in thwarting retaliations from Iran. However, the US would not rule out a military strike if it is suspected Iran has a nuclear weapons program. As usual, Iran denies it has an atomic program that is aimed at making weapons. Denial is not believable because the U.S., the United Nations, and Israel all know Iran has plans to have nuclear weapons available soon.
I continue to quote from NewsMax.com:
“Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said on Saturday that Israel and the United States would never strike Iran, saying that “both the U.S. and Zionist regime face internal problems and they know that we make many troubles for them if they attack Iranian territory.”
Yahya Rahim Safav told ISNA, Iran’s news agency, that Iran’s armed forces were “fully prepared and enemies are aware of that, they do not have the power to take a political decision on the issue, because they know they can start the war but are not able to finish it.”
“We need to be fully vigilant of these attacks, the enemy knows that it will regret if launches a land strike against Iran.” Safavi said.
Will President Obama ever have the courage to attack Iran if they get nuclear weapons? That’s a good question. We know he wants to have a peaceful world without nuclear weapons. He opened up our storage of weapons to Russia, told the world every weapon we have and how many, and made sure Russia had all their questions answered.
Obama and Liberal elitists think we will be safer without nuclear weapons and so he/they want to disarm America. He thinks Russia knowing what we have will make us safer so they won’t feel like they have to keep up with us by making more weapons.
The question has been asked, “How safe are we when other countries and the Middle East know what we weapons we have in storage? These countries don’t care about disarmament and they WILL continue to seek nuclear weapons as we disarm. Oh, great idea Mr. President! Where is your head? I think it’s in the clouds because it sure isn’t in the real world, where we all live with bad people that want to hurt us badly!
I guess this would be a good time to pray for an awakening to hit the White House before it is too late and we can no longer respond to nuclear threats. If Obama has his way, he will disarm our satellite and our ability to stop a first strike attack. If he has his way, we will have little or nothing left in weapons storage to fight with and defend ourselves.
I said before the elections that Democrats do not believe we are in a “War on Terror” (we can’t even use the word any more). They are wimps when it comes to calling radical Muslims terrorists. I also said “How can Democrats protect us when they don’t even see that we have a security problem in the U.S.? I still ask these same questions.
I don’t know what the future holds for us, but I do know we can only pray for heaven’s help and prepare for the worst. You might want to check out my store at http://shop.ourdayshopping.com.
