I also remember walking up in the middle of the night hearing the fire sirens (used to summon our town's volunteer fire department) and worrying if the sirens were actually announcing a nuclear attack instead of a fire. I would lie in bed dreading the next fifteen minutes - fifteen minutes was all we had if an actual ICBM warhead was on its way. After twenty minutes or so I could try to get back to sleep knowing that I would not be dying from radiation poisoning that night.
Some of my classmates' dad's had installed bomb shelters in their backyards or made some kind of arrangement in their basements. We could walk by huge drums of emergency rations stored in the basements of our schools.
Israeli kids are already more than familiar with that scenario. The 1991 Iraqi War - Operation Desert Storm (aka the Iraqi Turkey Shoot) - introduced Israeli to SCUD ballistic missile bombardment initiated by a sick, sadistic son of a bitch who had no regard for the lives of others. How can you doubt the savagery of a man who tortures and murders his own people by gas and bullet? Whose mercy is gauged by whether or not you are fed headfirst into a chipper?
There is another man just as cruel who has replaced Saddam Hussein - Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
He makes the same threats to destroy Israel.
He supports terrorism and is directly responsible for the deaths of hundreds of American and British soldiers and Israelis through munitions smuggled into Afghanistan, Iraq and the Gaza Strip.
He is preparing nuclear weapons.
He has been found in contempt of UN resolutions and international law numerous times by exporting munitions, refusing to allow UN inspectors to assess their nuclear weapons program and building uranium enrichment plants.
These actions occur in the nation of Iran and are applauded by Ahmadinejad:
- Use idle construction cranes to hang homosexuals.
- Shoot protesters.
- Kidnap, torture and rape their own citizens who criticize the government.
- Kidnap and imprison citizens of other nations who criticize the government.
Have we gone down this path before with another tyrant not even ten years ago?
Why do we allow these sadistic fiends to step foot in this country, UN status notwithstanding?
Why does Obongo ignore this?
The most damning statement regarding Obongo's "alleged" blindness/naivete is that even the French can see what is going on in Iran. Of course the MSM will not allow Teh One to be embarrassed in any shape, matter or form, so the news that French President Sarkozy mocks Obongo on the Irani issue is withheld from the American public. Just a sample of Sarkozy's quotes are here:
Thank God for the Internet and talk radio that allow us to discover the duplicity of our own government in enabling tyrants to impose their will on others. Of course that will have to end if Obongo and his democrats have their way.
“President Obama dreams of a world without weapons … but right in front of us two countries are doing the exact opposite.
“Iran since 2005 has flouted five security council resolutions. North Korea has been defying council resolutions since 1993.
“I support the extended hand of the Americans, but what good has proposals for dialogue brought the international community? More uranium enrichment and declarations by the leaders of Iran to wipe a UN member state off the map,”
This is more of the elitists' attempts to destabilize the country and impose an oligarchy:
a form of government in which all power is vested in a few persons or in a dominant class or clique; government by the few. a form of government in which all power is vested in a few persons or in a dominant class or clique; government by the few...Obongo has trashed the economy, Wall Street, the banking/finance industry, we have lost 4 million jobs since he came to office but gained 25,000 government employees, there has been an unprecedented upsurge in domestic terrorist plots and now he is turning international security into another disaster. This is textbook communist tactics "Ideological Subversion" - destablize a country so that the people demand security at all cost, at any cost. There are four steps to this:
Unemployment is the worst in 60 years, many seniors have lost their life savings, the national media cannot be trusted, Congressional approval rating are nonexistent (demoralization).
The dollar is falling like a brick, we are threatened both internationally and domestically by terrorists , our schools/colleges are hotbeds of socialism, our culture is in the toilet - gays, gangs, greed and the worship of self - (destabilization).
I think Obongo and the dems are moving us right into crisis mode now. If Israel is attacked by a thermonuclear device, all bets are off.
