Obama's Unjust Iran Policy
Dec 7th, 2009 at 3:13pm
 
Message to Teheran: Go, Man, Go!

By BILL CHRISTISON

It takes only two paragraphs to demonstrate the foolishness and utter injustice of President Obamaís 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 Israelís and the Zionist lobbyís 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 Iranís proposal for ten new nuclear plants will bring Obama to his senses, but donít count on it.
