That otherwise intelligent people might think these monsters are different requires taking my response and entering it as a complete blog post:
“Hi there Frank … firstly, I would never put Dolfie Hitler side by side with Khomeini … Khomeini fought to liberate his country and his people from the criminal puppet regime of Reza Pahlavi … who rose to power thanks to a CIA financed coup d’état … believe me, most of the times we like to play as if we were victims … but in fact, we are the bad guys …”
Actually it was British MI-6, you know, James Bond’s Unit, really, that murdered ShahinShah Reza Pahlavi’s father, the Shah of Iran, for allying with Adolph Hitler at the outbreak of World War II, kidnapped the son, and raised him in England under the tutelage of MI-6 to eventfully rule Iran as a puppet of England and the US jointly. Under his rule Iran became, and remains today, the most educated nation in the region with the highest standard of living.
Those were the days when the buffoons in Congress had not yet castrated our intelligence services, and we were still able to use clandestine operations never disclosed to the media or to the idiots in Congress who blab to the press. The State Department did not even fully understand what we did because our intelligence services never told them. Clandestine operations like this saved the region from war, and saved the lives of millions of civilians and tens of thousands of American troops.
Yes, ShahinShah Reza Pahlavi maintained a brutal secret police, the Savak, but he effectively fought a daily war against armed terrorists infiltrating into his country to foment armed revolution ,from both the USSR and from Khomeini. Iran and Turkey form the long land barrier separating the USSRfrom the Mideast oil. Naturally, the Communist-favoring liberals criticise Iran and Turkeys human rights practices.
Without our partnership with the ShahinShah, the USSR would have achieved complete occupation of the Mideast, and would control all of that oil. And you think oil is expensive today!
Khomeini and his successors have been far more brutal than the ShahinShah. They have killed more people than his police ever did, and they are cooperating with the Russians.
In addition, Iran recruits, trains, arms, supplies, funds and supports terrorists in Iraq who murder American soldiers every day. One of my contentions with our conduct of the Iraq war is that we have not punished Iran by killing a hundred Iranians for every one of our troops killed by their terrorists. I would start by dropping a thousand pound bomb through the roof of their President’s home one night. No nation may be permitted to kill our troops without massive retaliation.
Khomeini’s successors do the same as he did: they deny the Holocaust, and both preach and work actively for the destruction of Israel, including by funding Hamas and other terrorist groups in Lebanon, Jordan and the Gaza Strip, that set bombs and fire rockets into Israel every day.
Not to mention that Iran is building nuclear bombs and missiles that can not only deliver them to Israel, but also to Paris and London, so that Europe would be deterred when Iran fires nukes into Israel.
Yes, we were brutal with the ShahinShah, but we kept the USSR out of the Mideast, and raised the Iranian people to the highest educational and economic level in the Mideast.
Yes, I do equate Khomeini with Hitler, and yes, both of them wish genocide on our valued allies the Jewish people. Khomeini was every bit as brutal as Hitler with dissent inside his own country.
I had access to information and overseas intelligence, which remains classified, about Iran when I co-authored a study projecting future conflicts for the Department of Defense 40 years ago, when the ShahinShah was in power.
That study accurately predicted every significant aspect of the current situation in the Mideast, from forty years ago.
Which makes me one of the world’s leading authorities on the subject.
I have not yet published my book on this subject because much of the information remains classified.
My parting comment is that when unknown and obscure foreign leaders write that they intend the unacceptable, we should pay attention. Iran says it will wipe Israel off the map. They are building the nukes and the missiles that can both vaporize Israel, and also deter Europe from retaliating.
We should pay attention.
Are you listening, Barack Obama?
