Iran has been proudly displaying an intelligence-gathering U.S. drone aircraft it recently downed. And a “senior U.S. official” revealed Thursday, according to Fox News, that Barack Obama “was presented with three separate options for retrieving or destroying the drone. The president ultimately decided not to proceed with any of the plans because it could have been seen as an act of war.”
Apart from the obvious – Islamic Iran, China and Russia now have state-of-the-art stealth technology, and we have lost a killer app used in warplanes and drone technology against the enemies of freedom – the most frightening aspect of this story is that Obama had numerous proposals to retrieve the critical intelligence-gathering drone and rejected them all. Instead, Obama left the drone there for the murdering mullahs. U.S. and Israeli intelligence are shocked.
His pathetic reason, “because it could have been seen as an act of war,” is ridiculous on its face. Iran sees everything as an act of war. That is the rhetoric in which they trade. But giving Iran, Russia and China our drone technology is far more damaging than the war of words the jihadists have been engaging in for decades.
Obama’s decision not to retrieve one of our most important cutting-edge weapons in the war on the global jihad was subterfuge, an attack on America. He should have destroyed that drone immediately, but the commander in chief is not on our side. Think about the implications of that.
Meanwhile, former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations John Bolton said this about the downed drone: “Some reports have said Russia sold (Iran) a very sophisticated jamming system a short time ago. Now, our military says that is not true, it came down because of a malfunction. I certainly hope that’s right because if the Russians have provided Iran with sophisticated jamming equipment it means a lot else is at risk too.” He said that if Iran has this jamming equipment, they could bring down “a whole range of our weapon systems.”
But instead of doing anything to prevent their getting that equipment, Obama goes into Libya and worries not about “declarations of war” or congressional approval. He supports the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt in their overthrow of our 30-year ally, Hosni Mubarak. And last month, he arbitrarily decided (without congressional approval) to send American troops to the jungles of Uganda. Our boys and girls should not, I repeat, should not be in the jungles of Africa. Fatal foreign policy. But clearly, Obama is not worried about the “perception of war.”
From Egypt to Libya, Tunisia to Morocco, the story is the same: Pro-Shariah Islamic supremacists are taking power. But most of all, this is the story of the failure of Obama as president. This development has been obvious for years. Obama was given a golden opportunity when the Iranian people begged for his help. Instead, he backed the murdering mullahs.
Still, there is hope. That is made clear by this latest struggle by our pro-jihad president and the majority of pro-freedom patriots in the Congress. The Washington Post reported Friday that “Republicans and Democrats determined to look tough on Iran and avoid any election-year challenges to their pro-Israel bona fides are rebuffing Obama administration pleas to ease proposed sanctions on Iran’s Central Bank.”
Why would Obama want to ease sanctions on Iran? He sounds mentally ill. Or he wants a universal caliphate.
Compare the revolutions under Bush: the Rose Revolution, the Cedars Revolution and all true freedom revolutions to remove the shackles of oppression, subjugation and persecution. Conversely, the revolutions across the world during the Obama rout are all Islamic supremacist movements. And he sanctions them all except the only one that was truly a freedom movement – Iran’s freedom revolution.
Obama’s assault on our allies and support for freedom’s enemies is so egregious that he has managed to unite the Congress. Despite Obama’s pleas to go soft on a nuclear Iran, Republicans and Democrats are going ahead with sanctions that would target foreign banks that do business with Iran’s Central Bank.
The congressional rebuff to our pro-Iran president best illustrates the importance of securing a super majority in the Congress, and why we must win the Senate in 2012.
In the disastrous event of an Obama win (certainly made possible by voluntary state-run media and his goon armies ACORN, SEIU, the George Soros-funded propaganda machine, et al.) the Congress will be the only thing that stands between us and the destruction of the greatest, freest nation in the history of man.
Be prepared for more Obama ugliness. A billion-dollar marketing campaign of ugliness coupled with an activist media deceiving the American public to advance their uber-left anti-American agenda, the re-election of Obama. We are entering what is certain to be an incomprehensibly ugly year, full of the politics of destruction – courtesy of Barack Hussein Obama.
And when it comes to Iran, pray for Israel at this critical time. It’s all on them. The United States under Barack Obama is like Secretariat being ridden by Rosie O’Donnell. A tremendous machine under the control of a destructive malcontent. Disaster. And the worst is yet to come.
