80% OF MOSLEMS SUPPORT ISLAMIC STATE ACCORDING TO ALJAZEERA
If Bush and Cheney "lied" us into the Iraq War as Chris Matthews charges (which they did not) God bless them. Lies or no lies they saved the world from the horror of a nuclear armed Saddam.
It was anguishing for me last week watching crazy, cracked leftist Chris Matthews go berserk on former deputy director of the CIA Mike Morrel in trying to bully him into saying that Dick Cheney lied us into invading Iraq by claiming that Saddam Hussein had a nuclear bomb. From George Bush on down no one in the administration ever said, or intended to say, that Saddam was armed with nukes-with the exception of Cheney misspeaking on one occasion (which Matthews gleefully played for Morell out of context*) that "Saddam had a reconstituted nuclear bomb." What Cheney meant to say based on the faulty intel Mike Morell and the CIA provided to the administration was that "Saddam was reconstituting his nuclear weapons program" not that he had a "reconstituted nuclear bomb" when Saddam never had a nuke that could be reconstituted.
*Later in that same interveiw with Tim Russert (3-16-2003) Cheney correcting himself said "it’s only a matter of time until he [Saddam] acquires nuclear weapons." And he was right.
CIA'S INTEL ON SADDAM NOT FAR WRONG
The CIA's intel in the early 2000s that Saddam was "reconstituting his nuclear weapons program," that put the fear of God in Bush (as it should have after 9/11), was wrong-but not far wrong. Saddam retained the services of his nuclear scientists and technicians keeping them on the government payroll while in possession of 550 metric tons of yellow cake uranium (see), with every intention of "reconstituting" his nuclear program when conditions warranted. In fact, we have it straight from the horse's mouth as Saddam himself came clean and admitted as much in 2004. For while a prisoner at Camp Cropper prison in Baghdad awaiting trial Saddam told George Piro, an FBI interrogator, that he was planning "to develop a nuclear capability in an incremental fashion (see)." In other words, Saddam would have eventually used his nuclear scientists and techs to turn his yellow cake uranium into fissile nuclear material for the bomb. And what prevented that frightful possibility thank God was George Bush's right decision to invade Iraq and topple Saddam-which his father should have done 12 years earlier.
But there is more justifying Bush's war. Assuming for argument's sake that Bush chose not to use the authority granted him by Congress to invade Iraq and remove Saddam, and the dictator continuing in power went forward with his plans to reconstitute his nuclear weapons program by building a secret underground enrichment facility like Iran has at Fordow. And assuming that the US or Israelis discovered the secret plant and destroyed it in air attacks-like Israel did to Saddam's Osirik plant in 1981, or mass murderer Assad's plant at Deir-ez-Zor, Syria in 2007 (see). Assuming that America and Israel would have made it impossible for Saddam to build a nuclear arms facility what then? Would that have finally discouraged the dictator and ended his quest for the bomb making an invasion unnecessary? The answer is NO.
With enemy Shia radical Iran next door enriching uranium for nuclear bomb making Saddam would never have-could not have-abandoned his nuclear ambitions. Giving up wasn't in Saddam's nature-12 years of defying the international community on practically everything proves as much. Unable to develop the bomb in Iraq Saddam would have no choice but to go offshore to build it. With his billions in petro dollars from rising oil prices Saddam would have went to the worst nuclear proliferator on the planet for the bomb: "Axis of Evil" ally North Korea. It would have been nothing for Saddam to dispatch his nuclear scientists and techs to the hard up, cash strapped Norks to lease one of their nuclear facilities to develop nuclear weapons (like Iran could do today); or to buy nukes off the shelf from the Norks like Saudi Arabia can do from Sunni ally Pakistan. Just like Saddam purchased undelivered (because of his imminent downfall) intermediary range ballistic missiles from the Norks before the war so could he have easily purchased North Korean made nukes once the hard up cash strapped Norks went nuclear. None of this should seem far-fetched to anyone. For no sooner did the Norks detonate their first nuclear device in 2006 than they were hard at work in Syria building an illegal nuke plant for Assad.
George Bush and Dick Cheney deserve credit and our lasting thanks for taking down Iraq's intransigent, unreformable, power crazed strong man who never relinquished his impossible dream of becoming the Joseph Stalin of the Middle East heading a unified, region-wide, nuclear armed pan-Arab state. Operation Iraqi Freedom saved us from a nuclear Saddam followed by a nuclear Uday, his sadistic insane murderous son.
Indeed, Republican presidential hopefuls instead of beating a retreat and joining the left in declaring the Iraq War a mistake should come out swinging and defend Bush and Cheney for saving mankind from the menace of a nuclear to be Saddam.
< p style="text-align: center;">WITHOUT REGIME CHANGE IN IRAN IT WILL ABSOLUTELY BECOME A NUCLEAR ARMED STATE
Obama tries to be many things to many people: a Moslem to Moslems who celebrates Ramadan with imams in the White House; a Christian to Christians lighting up the National Christmas Tree in DC; an Iranian to Iranians celebrating Nowruz the Persian New Year; and an irreligious secularist to those without God who worship power and the state.
But Friday at a synagogue in downtown DC Obama offered proof to Jewish Americans that he's also one of them by citing his seven White House seders and two Jewish chiefs of staff. But what he didn't say (and his wife well knows) is that twice he's been circumcised by Israel's Prime Minister making him look like the world's biggest schmuck: the smack down in the White House on Israel's secure borders, and the speech before Congress on Iranian nukes.
Now that Bibi Netanyahu has circumcised Obama into the tribe he can proudly and truthfully say that he's a Black American Jew along with such notables as Little Richard and Sammy Davis Junior.
the coming execution of Morsi and 105 Moslem Brethren, the closing of 27,000 radical mosques, the call for an Islamic reformation to halt the spread of jihad and Islamism, celebrating Christmas Mass in a Coptic Church, pounding ISIS targets in Libya in the wake of mass murdering Christians, President al-Sisi is a hero for our time. A magnificent man and leader up there with Bibi Netanyahu as one of the two brightest lights of the Middle East.
The bloodthirsty, race-obsessed, lynch mob left in Baltimore and across the land wanted badly and were denied their pound of innocent white man's flesh first from George Zimmerman, a white/hispanic community watchman for killing unarmed Trayvon Martin in self-defense; then from Darren Wilson, a white Ferguson, Missouri policeman for shooting Michael Brown to death in self-defense; and then from Dan Panteleo, a white New York City cop for accidentally killing sick, obese Eric Garner who stupidly resisted arrest for selling illegal cigarettes. Though Martin, Brown and Garner were law breaking, good for nothing black men, ultimately responsible for their own deaths, the insane lynch mob left couldn't care less. Marching angrily through city streets (with rioting, looting, burning down stores and injuring and killing police) they demanded "No Justice No Peace" if either Zimmerman, Wilson or Panteleo weren't hung for killing three worthless pieces of scum-as if they were saints because their skin color.
And now in Baltimore the violent cop-hating left came back with a roar looting, destroying property and injuring police and warning again they'd be "No Justice No Peace" if they're not served up their pound of flesh from six Baltimore police for the mysterious death of Freddie Gray: a worthless, drug dealing doper and thief who after being arrested for allegedly carrying an illegal knife (and possibly for dope dealing) strangely died while in police custody.
To the delight of the out of control Baltimore mob amateur, inexperienced, juvenile kid prosecutor Marilyn Mosby claimed that Gray's arrest was unlawful because, contradicting police, his knife wasn't illegal (see). As the public hasn't seen the knife (and won't until the trial) no one knows for certain who is right.
However, there appear to be SIGNS that the cop hating, criminal loving, lynch mob left is on its way to defeat again. That like Zimmerman, Wilson and Panteleo the Baltimore Six will be cleared of any crimes in Freddie Gray's death. Indeed, just ten days after Marilyn Mosby filed charges against The Six (ranging from illegal arrest to murder two) hated "racist killer" George Zimmerman came out of the blue and made news again; this time as the victim of an alleged violent crime where he could have wound up dead. Amazingly, Zimmerman, who no longer lives in Florida where he killed Trayvon Martin and was wrongly tried for murder-was briefly back in the Sunshine State visiting his mom for Mother's Day when, according to police, a motorist who he knew, one Matthew Apperson, shot a bullet into his van shattering a window and just missing his head. Around the web I saw comment after comment by Zimerman hating leftists mourning that the shooter didn't hit and kill Zimmerman who deserved to die... for defending his life against a violent gangsta emulating thug who was trying to ground and pound him to death*. The left was"cheated" by providence as Zimmerman unhurt escaped with minor cuts from flying glass. The incident is being investigated with the shooter not arrested yet (see).
*One such comment read: "Too bad Mr. Apperson didn't spend more time at the target range."
But the question remains: does Zimmerman's sudden reappearance foreshadow what happened to his case? And that "Justice for Freddie" will go the way of "Justice for Trayvon" with all six cops acquitted? Maybe, maybe not. But this amazing coincidence, significant as it seems, isn't the end of it. For just as startling was another Zimmerman-Gray related "sign" that occurred thirty days earlier on April 12th-the day when doper Freddie Gray was arrested for the 22nd time, and put in the police van that somehow caused fatal injuries to his neck and spine. For April 12th was just one day past the third anniversary of Florida prosecutor Angela Corey (a name that rhymes with Marilyn Mosby) caving to the lynch mob and filing the unwarranted charge of second degree murder against Zimmerman in Trayvon Martin's death. And on the following day, April 12th, Florida Judge Mark Herr (see) found Corey's politicized affidavit sufficient to establish probable cause-when there was none as Alan Dershowitz said (see). Now Dershowitz is back criticizing Mosby (Corey on steroids) for her inept handling of the Gray case; and predicting (as he did with Zimmerman) that the defendants will be exonerated (see).
Indeed, it looks like George Zimmerman (a racially mixed man) is a sign that the racially mixed Baltimore Six (half white, half black) will be found not guilty when they go to trial. And the insane lynch mob left won't be getting its pound of flesh (a murder conviction)-which suits me fine.
Obama says: You know, if I had a second wife she'd look like
Then again, she could pass for my third daughter.
Obama lacking economic sense, insight and 4sight is the 4th foolish President in US history to sign a 4doomed Keynesian stimulus bill .
On February 18th an Egyptian administrative court made history by upholding an unprecedented government edict issued by the moderate, Christian friendly, anti-jihadist regime of President Abdel al-Sisi ordering the closing of 27,000 places of worship which were exclusively Moslem mosques (see). Why were none of the thousands of Coptic churches included in the edict? Was it fair that only mosques and no churches were closed?
President al-Sisi greeted by Pope Francis at the Vatican.
One dissonant voice on Facebook commenting on the ill-treatment of Moslems verses Christians under al-Sisi said: “Well done! Christians have lost the right to complain about their lesser status. Egypt is no longer a Muslim Nation -- it has turned Christian, or so it seems!” Another dissonant voice at the time was so outraged at the mosques' closings that he accused al-Sisi of being a crypto-Christian who secretly converted to the faith while serving as defense minister under radical Moslem Brotherhood President Morsi. For proof of his theory the commenter pointed to al-Sisi's historic visit on Christmas Eve to Egypt's largest Coptic church, a first for an Egyptian head of state. Also mentioned was al-Sisi's tight alliance with Coptic Pope Tawadros II, an enthusiastic supporter of his pro-Coptic regime. To this couldd be added al-Sisi's bombing of ISIS targets in Libya shortly after these butchers beheaded 21 innocent Copts while praising Allah (see).
Could the angry commenter be right? Is al-Sisi an apostate from Islam making him the first Christian head of Egypt since its conquest by Moslems 14 centuries ago? We don't know. Until there's hard proof of al-Sisi's conversion a more likely explanation is that he's a real, genuine Egyptian nationalist (more so than were Sadat and Mubarak) patriotically carrying out his responsibilities as President to protect the safety, security and property of all Egyptians regardless of faith. And that the closing of 27,000 mosques, verses not a single church, is due solely to their actual (or potentially) radical nature headed by extremist clerics poisoning their congregations with violence and hate against Christians and the Egyptian state. But that not one single church was closed (large or small) tells us that al-Sisi regards Christianity as more truly a religion of God's peace, and more beneficial to Egypt, than is the Islamic faith that he's courageously trying to reform against a growing storm.
As I was looking through my Townhall archives today I came across this piece about the Boston Marathon Bombing. Inspired by Arianna Huffington I thought it would amuse you.

(ripped off from Mondoweiss)
What Obama didn't say-and knows to be true as it would make him look like the biggest fool since Hitler deceived Chamberlain-is that even if Iran becomes 100% transparent about its domestic nuclear program; even if the terrorist mullahs open up every inch of their vast $100 billion nuclear infrastructure to the most rigorous UN inspection and verification process, it won't stop them from getting the bomb. Why? Because just as the Saudis can easily acquire nukes from Pakistan (which they don't want to do but will if Iran goes nuclear, see) the mullahs can easily acquire them from their "Axis of Evil" partners in Stalinist North Korea-the worst nuclear proliferators on the planet. And if anyone is dumb enough to doubt this then they need to recall that just one year after the Norks detonated their first nuclear bomb they were hard at work (possibly with Iran) on building a nuclear weapons facility for Bashar Assad in Syria. This project was the "largest act of nuclear proliferation in history," said David Asher, George Bush's coördinator for North Korea (see). The plant, however, was destroyed by Israel* (see).
*Because of the plant's illegal nature Assad never filed a complaint with the UN about Israel violating Syria's airspace and destroying it.
THE IRAN-NORTH KOREA PACT
The US has no way to shut down Iran's pathway to develop nukes in N.Korea.
In fact, what Obama knows and wants kept hidden as it completely destroys his credibility of halting Iran's march to the bomb is that in 2012 Iran signed a scientific and technological cooperation agreement with North Korea (see and see). These two Axis of Evil states are evily working together on missile technology (for ICBMs which Iran has developed), and most likely nuclear weapons technology. Moreover, there is evidence that Assad (the worst mass murderer of the 21st century who used chemical weapons on his people) is still pursuing nuclear weapons with the Norks (see). Frighteningly, Iranian scientists are reported to have been present at both of North Korea's nuclear detonations (see).
Radical terrorist jihadist Iran's nuclear ambitions cannot be constrained or controlled by any agreement-no more than was Hitler and the Nazis controlled by the Munich Accord before the outbreak of World War II. The genocidal mullahs are staying the course to a deadly, mass death-dealing nuclear armed state, and nothing can stop it but regime change. What we heard in the Rose Garden yesterday was a pathetic political smoke and mirrors charade for 2016 and his legacy. The goal of the negotiations was never to prevent Iran from getting the bomb, but to make the great amateur look like what he is not and can never be: a statesman. Barack Obama is indeed the worst, weakest and most dangerously mendacious president in US history. Hoax and Change will not end until Obama's gone from the White House. And between now and then God help us.
