According to a report in Al Jazerra, Iran has decided to wait to see if John Kerry will win the presidential election on Nov. 2.
Why? Iran would like to accept the “Kerry Plan” in which the United States and the European Union triumvirate of France, Germany, and England would accept Iran’s right to sophisticated nuclear technology and supply them the nuclear fuel necessary to run that technology.
The re-election of President Bush is clearly less acceptable to Iran. What the Bush Administration wants is to force a Nov. 25 decision by the International Atomic Energy Agency that Iran is not cooperating with the international controls needed to use nuclear technology responsibly, for peaceful purposes only. Following such a determination, the Bush administration could force the Iranian question before the Security Council where further sanctions could be imposed upon Iran.
We again encourage John Kerry to telephone one of his top fund-raisers, Hassan Nemazee. Mr. Kerry could even refer to this site where on WorldNetDaily.com he could view in streaming video the clip of Mr. Nemazee’s deposition where on Oct. 18, 2004, Mr. Nemazee under oath testified that he “would not trust this regime on the nuclear issue to have any intentions other than a weaponized program.”
Would someone please give Mr. Nemazee a telephone? Here is one of the campaign’s top fund-raisers – a man who has raised over $500,000 for Sen. Kerry. Sen. Kerry, Mr. Nemazee thinks giving Iran nuclear fuel with the expectation that the mullahs will use it only for peaceful purposes is foolish.
Yet, Kerry’s foolhardy Iran plan should not surprise us. This week, WorldNetDaily.com has reported on documents captured by the U.S. military during the Vietnam War. The documents show Hanoi’s clear intentions to guide and assist the U.S. anti-war movement, communicating directives through the communist delegates to the Paris Peace Conference.
According to these documents, Hanoi planned carefully to influence the American anti-war movement in the Fall of 1971 by promoting what was known as the 7-Point Peace Plan of Madame Binh, the chief negotiator of the Provisional Revolutionary Government, more simply known as the Viet Cong. On July 22, 1971, John Kerry called a press conference in Washington, D.C., where as chief spokesperson for the Vietnam Veterans Against the War he called for President Nixon to accept Madame Binh’s 7-Point Peace Plan.
Moreover, John Kerry followed precisely the methodology specified by the Hanoi directive – he surrounded himself with sympathetic POW families, emphasizing the heartfelt nature of their loss and expanding anti-war sentiments to the Air Force community, from which most of the American POWs in Vietnam had come. John Kerry, quite simply, had become Madame Binh’s surrogate spokesperson.
What was this 7-Point Peace Proposal? Again, simply put, an American surrender – a capitulation, an admission that the war was immoral, a complete withdrawal of American military forces from Vietnam, and the payment of reparations to the Vietnamese communists. Why would America do this? To get our POWs back, of course. The Vietnamese communists wanted to achieve the propaganda victory that we ourselves, in our determination to carry the war to victory, were the only barrier to the return of our imprisoned loved ones.
John Kerry had crossed the line. Even though he yet was an officer in the Naval Reserves, he was supporting our enemy, betraying the U.S. Army we then had in the field of combat.
How are the two events which bridge over 33 years of history tied together today? In both instances, John Kerry is ready to become the apologist for a declared enemy of the United States.
Even though we were at war with the Vietnamese communists, John Kerry wanted to portray the war as an immoral war, a mistake. His charge before the Fulbright Committee was that we were colonial aggressors meddling in a civil war. He stated that few consequences would be felt if we would withdraw and he has never taken responsibility for the over 500,000 South Vietnamese put in thought-reform camps under the communists, the murderous communist sweep across the killing fields created throughout Southeast Asia, or the approximately 2 million boat people who fled Vietnam for freedom, with many families dying desperately in boats that were not seaworthy. John Kerry was wrong. The consequences of allowing the Vietnamese communists to take over South Vietnam were catastrophic to millions of human lives.
Now John Kerry asks us to ignore the terrorist nature of the Iranian Islamic regime. These mad mullahs introduced themselves to Americans by taking our embassy personnel hostage for 444 days under Jimmy Carter. Iran supports Hezbollah and Hamas, terrorists organizations with a dedicated purpose to send suicide bombers into Israel, consistent with Iran’s stated goal of bringing death and extinction to the Jewish state of Israel. The mullahs fund insurgents pouring into Iraq, determined to cause instability and attack American troops. Even the 9-11 commission report lays out a clear case that Iran gave free passage to the al-Qaida hijackers who flew into the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.
Iran is an enemy of the United States. If the 9-11 terrorists had been armed with nuclear weapons, does anyone seriously doubt they would have detonated them in New York and Washington? We dare not accept the consequences of John Kerry being wrong once again. Has John Kerry ever met an enemy of the United States that he doesn’t like?
