Not All Foreign Investors Welcome
Update: Sarah Palin Hammered Obama/Biden On Iran

Palin Should Hammer Biden On Iran

Senator Joesph Biden's expressed views concerning a nuclear Iran and the overall global Islamist jihad against the West, reveal both inconsistency and dangerous denial.

In tonights debate Sarah Palin should hammer Biden on Iran.

In the Democratic presidential debate in Des Moines, Iowa last December the following question was posed in regards to Iran:

"Do you agree with the president's assessment that Iran still poses a threat."?

Biden responded:

"[The NIE concludes that] in 2003, they stopped their nuclear program. The president is not trustworthy."

In other words, Biden dissagreed that Iran was a threat.

What was also missing in Biden's answer was that if the NIE report was accurate, and there was a temporary halt in Iran's nuke program in 2003, then it coincided with the U.S. military's quick takedown of Sadam's forces in Iraq. Just next door to Iran, as nervous Ayatollahs watched the worldwide coverage.

Not to mention Libya making the decision to abandon it's own weapons program also coincided the same year.

Biden continued with his answer:

" [President Bush] has undermined our security in the region. He has undermined our credibility in the world. He has made it more difficult to get cooperation from the rest of the world. He has caused oil prices to go up roughly $25 a barrel--a security premium-because of his threat of war. It is outrageous, intolerable, and it must stop."

It is outrageous, intolerable, that liberal democrats like Joe Biden undermine America's credibility in the world, and make it more difficult to get cooperation with them in promoting a unified front against the war that is being waged against America by the global jihad.

In the same debate this question was posed:

" Would you speculate on the reasons for Muslim's hatred of us"?

To this Biden replied:

" The reason why we are disliked so much is because we are trusted so little. I'm talking about the 1.2 billion Muslims in the world who look at us and, when we say and do things as we're talking about now with Iran, conclude that this is a war on Islam."

The first part of Biden's answer about 'trust' is similar to an age old Islamic myth: Muslims and non-Muslims lived in peacefull co-existence for centurys until the Crusades, which brought about 'mistrust'.

In fact it was the spread of Islam by the sword that brought about the Crusades as a defensive action.

With respect to Iran, they have called for Israel to be wiped off the map. Ahmadinejad and the Ayatollah's regime have yearly 'Holocaust Denial' conferences. And their 'World Without Zionism' spectacles.

The Iranian regime has been reponsible for attacks on U.S. troops in Iraq via their Shia proxys inside Iraq, and the supply of weapons smuggled to terrorists. Not to mention Iranian support of both Hezbollah and Hamas. 

The United States is not at war with Islam. But Islam has been at war with the non-Muslim world since Muhammed, the first Islamic terrorist.

Palin should hammer Biden for voting against an amendment that would have designated the Iranian Revolutionary Guards as a terrorist organization. The amendment called for the following:

  • that it is a vital US national interest to prevent the Government of the Islamic Republic of Iran from turning Shi'a militia extremists in Iraq into a Hezbollah-like force;
  • that it should be US policy to combat, contain, and roll back the violent activities and destabilizing influence inside Iraq of the Government of Iran;
  • to support the prudent and calibrated use of all instruments of power in Iraq, including diplomatic, economic, intelligence, and military instruments, in support of the policy;
  • that the US should designate the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps as a foreign terrorist organization.

Biden's reason for voting against the amendment was that he didn't 'trust' the President. But his 'trust' of the President has nothing to do with the subject matter of the above amendment. The amendment came about because of the reports of U.S. forces in the field and overwhelming evidence.

In regards to Iran's pursuit of a nuclear weapon Joe Biden had this to say at a democratic debate in June of last year:

"They are not a year or two years away [from getting a nuke]. They're a decade away from being able to weaponize exactly what the question was, if they put a nuclear weapon on top of a missile that can strike."

Wrong! Muhammed El-Baradei of the IAEA said three months ago that Iran could have a nuclear weapon in 6 months to a year. If accurate, Iran may have a nuke weapon only 3 months from now.

Caroline Glick is right. It is time to act.
