Message to Teheran: Go, Man, Go!

Obama's Unjust Iran Policy


AUTHOR:  Bill CHRISTISON


It takes only two paragraphs to demonstrate the foolishness and utter injustice of President Obama’s present policy toward Iran. In this world of nation-states, Iran has at least as much right to possess nuclear weapons as the far smaller Israel. The very existence, for over 40 years now, of Israeli nuclear weapons is almost certainly the dominant reason why Iran, while alleging the contrary, continues to move toward acquiring its own nuclear deterrent. If the U.S. president really wants to stop Iran from going nuclear, he has plenty of means and power to pressure Israel to dismantle its own nukes. He is simply unwilling to do so.

Obama has obviously concluded that, for his own political future, the top priority of his Middle East policies must be to continue strengthening the Israeli-U.S. partnership. Therefore he refuses to encourage Israel in any way to eliminate its nuclear weapons and delivery capabilities, or even to talk about the matter. Instead he will follow Israel’s and the Zionist lobby’s bidding and try to prevent Iran from ever acquiring such capabilities for itself. That being the case, citizens of the world, including U.S. citizens, had better prepare themselves for more wars, very possibly nuclear, started by the U.S. and/or Israel, in the months and years to come. Possibly the absurdity -- or perhaps it is desperation -- of Iran’s proposal for ten new nuclear plants will bring Obama to his senses, but don’t count on it.
