KISSENGER, OBAMA AND RONALD REAGAN

FROM APOLLOSPEAKS TOWNHALL ARCHIVES

2009-06-24 09:42 --KISSENGER, OBAMA AND RONALD REAGAN 

Henry Kissinger's approval of Obama's handling of the post-election violence and crackdown in Iran is in inverse relation to his opposition of Reagan's confrontational policies with the Soviet Union as being provocative, dangerous and destabilizing. Kissinger is as mistaken about this clueless, weak, anti-Reagan appeaser as he was about Reagan's necessary toughness and unwavering resolve  in dealing with the Soviets. And as Reagan's courage in international affairs and unyielding commitment to liberty and free markets made the world a vastly more peaceful and safer place Obama's invincible ignorance, intestinal weakness  and ideological blindness to evil, on the other hand, is leading this country and the world into extreme peril.

 

Postscript l:

Reagan's failure at engagement with Iran ( the Iran-Contra Affair) is about to be repeated by the Clueless One. If the hoped for diplomatic breakthrough didn't happen then, with the US supplying arms to Iran in its war with Saddam, what can Obama hope to achieve with Iran? He can offer Khamenie the moon and it will do nothing to alter his regime's nuclear ambitions and imperialist goals.

OPERATION PRAYING MANTIS

Many of us are ignorant of, or have forgotten, Operation Praying Mantis when on April 18, 1988 Reagan ordered our destroyers in the Persian Gulf to open fire on Iranian naval ships in retaliation for a US frigate damaged by an Iranian mine. Our forces sunk two Iranian vessels, several armed speedboats and damaged two defunct oil platforms used by Iran to gather intelligence.

 
Also hit several months later, was an Iranian commercial jetliner carrying and killing 290 passengers and crew*-though an accident the number of dead Iranians almost matched the number of murdered US servicemen who perished in the Iran backed Marine barracks attack five years earlier in Beirut*. Could it be that Divine Justice was at work that day evening up the score? Nevertheless, Reagan's actions stopped the bloody, horrific stalemated Iran-Iraq War and probably saved tens if not hundreds of thousands of lives from Khomeini's mad obsession to defeat Saddam.
 
*241 servicemen died in the barracks attack, 254 Iranians in the airline tragedy.

This piece was posted on Frontpage and Townhall as a comment to Michael Reagan's article: "Please Consider Tearing Down This Wall."

Below are three comments on my post together with my replies.

 dcnative writes on Frontpage:

"Apollo, if the deaths of the innocent Iranian civilians on the jetliner is an example of "divine justice evening up the score," your conception of God seems not so different from that of the mullahs and ayatollahs running Iran.

The servicemen and jetliner passengers were each unique individuals, with lives, hopes, dreams, families, friends. They were not chess pieces to be be moved, means to an end of cosmic scorekeeping, whether by other people or "divine justice."

ApolloSpeaks:

The 241 US Marines and servicemen were peacekeepers, they were the innocent victims of Islamonazi terror and murder. 13 more Iranian nationals were killed in the airline tragedy. Their deaths persuaded Khomeine to end hostilities with Saddam thus saving many thousands of lives from a stalemated war where a million horribly died. The downing of the jetliner that day had God's Justice and Mercy written all over it.

If the mullahs had my conception of God and theological views they would be at peace with us, at peace with their people, at peace with the world. See my comment below.

 Zapdoodat writes on Townhall:

""Reagan ordered our destroyers in the Persian Gulf to open fire."

Reagan's toughness was a little late, bud.

On May 17, 1987 the USS Stark was on patrol in the Persian Gulf. On that day Saddam Hussein ordered one of his fighters to fire an Exocet missile at our American ship. The missile hit our ship and 37 Americans died from the attack.

What was Ronald Reagan's response the reader may ask? Nothing, at first. Later his response was to proceed giving Iraq even more weapons.

Can someone please let me know if this is appeasement? "

 ApolloSpeaks:

The two Bushes, with Clinton in between, wreaked hovac on Saddam. It was justice delayed, bud.

AYATOLLAH KHAMENIE, THE PROPHET MOHAMMED AND ISLAMIC WORLD RULE

FROM APOLLOSPEAKS TOWNHALL ARCHIVES

2009-06-22 10:15  AYATOLLAH KHAMENIE, THE PROPHET MOHAMMED AND ISLAMIC WORLD RULE 

Yesrerday I was reading a Twitter report from Iran that Rafsanjani-head of Iran's Assembly of Experts-was in the holy city of Qom conferring with the Ayatollah Sistani-the greatest and grandest of all Ayatollah's in the world of Shiite Islam-about the post-election chaos in Iran. Sistani an Iranian born citizen of Iraq, and a voice of moderation in that country, is a long time opponent of Ayatollah Khomeini and Iran's Shiite theocracy. According to Sistani's interpretation of Islamic law Moslem clerics are absolutely and strictly forbidden to hold political office of any kind-not that he believes in the separation of church and state-civil society, according to Sistani, should be governed by Islamic law-but in the separation of Moslem clerics like himself from political power*.
 
*Clerics are only allowed to intervene in state affairs when Islam is in peril.

 

In other words, Iran is in gross violation of Sistani's understanding of Islam. For Iran's Supreme Leader (ruler, dictator or king), is also a cleric (an Ayatollah) with absolute religious authority on all matters relating to the Moslem faith. As pointed out by many writers Iran's theocracy is a complete innovation unprecedented in Islamic history, a revolution which Sistani condemns as heresy. But Sistani and these writers aren't entirely correct. Iran's theocracy does have a precedent, the precedent of Islam's founder, the Prophet Mohammed: Mohammed was both King (Supreme Leader) and Prophet to his people with absolute power in the realms of politics and faith. It would appear that Ayatollah Khomeini modeled the office of Supreme Leader on the Prophet and that he envisioned himself as Mohammed's true successor and near equal.

With good reason Khomeini is regarded by followers as infallible on matters of religion and politics, with good reason he is seen as the savior of Islam from powerlessness and decline. Like the Prophet God speaks directly to Khomeini directing and guiding his every word and deed. In short, Khomeini is the Prophet's holy incarnation combining in his person supreme political and religious authority destined by God to restore the faith to its former glory; destined to reverse Islam's miserable decline and turn it into a political and military superpower aiming at world domination.

Khomeini is no Mikhail Gorbachev with doubts about his revolutionary ideology ready to comprise his faith and foreign policy goals with infidels like America and initiate significant domestic reforms. Khomeini is a true believer, for him his goals are set in stone: the Islamic Republic of Iran is the perfect model for a just, peaceful and prosperous world order and his aim is to impose this model on everyone. Today Iran tomorrow the world! Khomeini is Hitler wearing a turban and robe committed unto death to the universal triumph of Islam. And now this genocidal regime and uncompromising leader are about to get the bomb. Imagine Hitler with nuclear arms and be very, very alarmed.

BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA: THE 7 FOLD WONDER OF THE WORLD

 

FROM  APOLLOSPEAKS' TOWNHALL ARCHIVES 

2009-06-21 09:55:45.000 - THE REIGN OF MIDGETMAN, MAU MAUS AND THE 7 FOLD WONDER OF THE WORLD

 While Barack Obama is aiming to become the biggest colossus of them all, the greatest of the imperial presidents with the most political power, with each passing day this greatly diminished man is shrinking to his proper size of mental and moral midgetry. 150 days in office and his first day was still his best, which will likely be the case when his disastrous reign of error comes to its crashing end. 

-------------------------------------------------------------

Dear Austin Hill:

Thanks for opening my eyes. Here I was thinking that Obama's model for ecomonic recovery was FDR's New Deal. After reading your insightful article (see) now I see the light: Obama's working model for ending the recession is the Kenyan Mau Mau Miracle.

                   -----------------------------------------------------------

After Khamenie made it divinely clear that Ahmadenijad's landslide reelection was indisputable and ordained by God the Left is now hanging their hopes that Iran's Assembly of Experts, headed by Rafsanjani, which theoretically has the power to impeach the Supreme Leader, will remove Khamenie from office. There's only one small inconvenient problem: the Assembly has no divisions*.

We now know that like Iran's sham democracy the Assembly of Experts is also a sham with no power over the Supreme Leader once he's elected. As with Iran's office of president the Assembly of Experts was devised to confuse the outside world with the semblance of a check and balance on the Supreme Leader's power. Since the ascension of Ayatollah Khomeine in 1979 the role of Supreme Leader was meant to be all powerful and absolute as he is the near equal of the prophet Mohammed God's supreme agent and infallible voice for Islam and truth on earth.

*Meaning no supporting army.

                    --------------------------------------------------------------------

When Barack Obama was sightseeing in Egypt and beheld the puzzling Sphinx, one of the ancient world's 7 wonders, I realized that he was not just one of the modern world's great wonders but 7 great wonders rolled one:

I wonder if he'll wreck the economy?

I wonder if he'll wreck national security?

I wonder if he'll wreck our foreign policy?

I wonder if he'll wreck Iraq?

I wonder if he'll wreck Afghanistan?

I wonder if he'll wreck our health care system?

I wonder if boy wonder will wreck the world?

Such is our wondrous president, a 7 fold engine of mass destruction.

GEORGE BUSH, IRAQ AND IRANIAN CONTEMPT FOR BARACK OBAMA AND THE ANTI-WAR LEFT

FROM APOLLOSPEAKS TOWNHALL ARCHIVES

2009-06-17 13:54:51 --GEORGE BUSH, IRAQ AND IRANIAN CONTEMPT FOR BARACK OBAMA AND THE ANTI-WAR LEFT 

Not only do anti-regime Iranians despise Barack Obama for his gutlessness in refusing to loudly and firmly support their democratic movement (like Reagan did Solidarity in Poland), but they also despise him for opposing George Bush, the Iraq War and the democracy saving surge. For the Shiite democracy of Iraq is providing the impetus, inspiration and hope for their young unorganized revolution. "Live free, or die!" is the motto of this new revolution as life and liberty will have to be risked for freedom. The Iranian people want for themselves what their Shiite neighbors to the West have with American help: an accountable, representative, democratically elected government to replace the oppressive, corrupt, murdering theocracy they live under. Four months into this Bush Derangement Administration and the Bush Doctrine is alive and well and bearing new fruit for a new and catastrophically developing democratic Middle East. We see how wide and deep Iraq's democracy has destabilized* Iran and given its people real hope for significant and lasting change. We see the new Iranian Revolution, which will live underground beyond its coming suppression, shaming Barack Obama to tears and making complete fools of the radical, insane, anti-war, Bush-hating left.

*Events in Iraq have been silently destabilizing the people of Iran with the spirit of liberty for years; now we are seeing it come to the fore.

Postscript:

Ask the protesters crowding the streets of Tehran how they view the Shiite democracy in Iraq and most will tell you that they regard it as a model for their future state.

 

OBAMA, JFK AND IRAN: A PROFILE IN COWARDICE

FROM APOLLOSPEAKS' TOWNHALL ARCHIVES
2009-06-16 09:02:08 OBAMA, JFK AND IRAN:  A PROFILE IN COWARDICE 
Boiling anger at Ahmadinejad and the mullahs is turning to disillusionment with Barack Obama as the Iranian masses see our unsupportive spineless leader for what he is: A PATHETIC MORAL COWARD AND WEAKLING . "The hottest places in hell are reserved for those who stay neutral in time of moral crisis." said JFK quoting Dante. The time is now, the crisis is here and where is Obama the messiah of morality and enlightened world leadership? Where is his outreach to Moslems? To the enslaved suffering people of a theonazi state wanting their freedom like the people in neighbouring Iraq? Where is he? Sitting passively on the sidelines thinking that he's being remarkably careful and prudent when he's  letting down millions wamting freedom from totalitarian Islam. Think of Ronald Reagan, think of Poland, think of his crucial support for Lech Walesa and Solidarity against totalitarian Russia. With good reason I say that Obama is the great anti-Reagan, his antitheis and polar opposite in everything from wisdom to valor and presidential leadership. Compared to Reagan Obama is a moral and mental pipsqueak-and the Iranians are rejoicing at their good fortune.
By slow degrees this president is turning the White House into a hell house that will engulf him in flames and burn him to cinders becoming his political funeral pyre as weakness and lack of resolve in dealing with enemies eventially lead to collapse of confidence in his presidency and ruin-as our enemies advance as we retreat on the world stage. If JFK were alive today he would be deeply ashamed of Obama; deeply ashamed that his brother and child were his kingmakers; deeply ashamed that he's the leader of the Free World; deeply ashamed at his profile in moral gutlessness and unpresidential weakness. May merciful God take him from us, sparing us from the harm that he's doing to our Republic; and saving him from the torment of epic failure and a legacy of ashes, dust and gloom.

TEHRAN 1979? OR TIANANMEN SQUARE 2009?

FROM APOLLOSPEAKS TWONHALL ARCHIVES

2009-06-16 17:27-- TEHRAN 1979? OR TIANANMEN SQUARE 2009? 

The big question making the rounds about events in Iran is will the widespread outrage and anti-regime unrest triggered by Friday’s presidential election translate into a 1979 type revolution with the mullahs sharing the fate of the Shah and being ousted from power? Or will the protests be ruthlessly crushed like the Tianammen Square Movement in China ten years later? The student protests at Tiananmen began on April 15th, 49 days before the death of Ayatollah Khomeini on June 3rd. Ominously on June 4th as Ali Khameine was being sworn as Khomeini's successor the brutal Chicoms were massacring protesters in Tiananmen Square crushing the pro-democracy. Not a very auspicious sign that the mullah regime is about to fall to the democratic movement erupting
throughout Iran.
 
Sadly, 20 years to the day from the end of Tiananmen and Khameine’s assumption of power, Barack Obama delivered his Moslem Outreach Speech in Cairo signaling that his feckless leftist foreign policy of apology, appeasement and accommodation would achieve nothing with fascist Iran and have a demoralizing effect on the democratic forces throughout the unfree Middle East and greater Moslem world.
 
 
Postscript I: George H. W. Bush and Tiananmen Square
 
Incredible as it is the Tiananmen Square protest began 85 days into the presidency of George H. W. Bush; on June 12th, the day Iran held its presidential election Bush turned 85. Another terrible sign that a brutal Tiananmen crackdown is coming to Iran.
 
Postscript II: Iranian Revolutionary Guard
 
Anti-regime protestors are aiming at a 1989 type "Velvet Revolution" resulting in the establishment of democratic rule. But, on the other hand, the powerful 125,000 man terrorist Iranian Revolutionary Guard, which has a huge ideological, geo-political and financial stake in the survival of the status quo (Khameine-Ahmadinejad), is preparing for a crushing 1989 Tiananmen Square-type crackdown of the pro-democracy movement.
 
 

 

NETANYAHU’S SPEECH, ANWAR SADAT AND MAKING PEACE IN THE MIDDLE EAST

FROM APOLLOSPEAKS TOWNHALL ARCHIVES

2009-06-14 14:56 -- NETANYAHU'S SPEECH, ANWAR SADAT AND MAKING PEACE IN THE MIDDLE EAST 
 
Prime Minister Netanyahu did well to deliver his impassioned plea for peace from the Sadat-Begin Center for Peace in Jerusalem. For it brings to mind and helps us recall the real way to peace in the Middle East for Arabs and Israeli Jews. It reminds us of an Arab Moslem leader, Anwar Sadat, who found the courage and strength to break with the hatred and bigotry of his race and make peace, real peace, with Israel by marching into Jerusalem and accepting her right to exist as a Jewish State. Outside of Sadat's heroic example there is no other way to peace between Arabs and Israelis in the region. There is no "two state solution" or "three state solution" for resolving the Palestinian-Israeli conflict; there is only one solution, Sadat's solution of first making peace with Israel as the basis for everything else. No peace, no Palestinian State, it's that simple. Unless Israel finds a real peace partner, a Palestinian Anwa Sadat, a Palestinian State existing in peace beside Isreal is the pipedream of fools.
 
Those who think there's another way to peace are deluding themselves. And among the delusional is Barack Hussein Obama who never once mentioned Sadat's example in his "historic" speech from Cairo where Sadat was brutally murdered by jihadists. Never once did he mentioned this great peacemaker as if he never existed; as if his great sacrifice of paying for peace with his life was unimportant and didn't count. "Blessed are the peacemakers" says the Bible. Unfortunately Barack Hussein Obama isn't one of them.

THE OBAMA DEFECT, THE IRANIAN ELECTION DEBACLE

FROM APOLLOSPEAKS TOWNHALL ARCHIVES   2009-06-13 05:29:21 --THE OBAMA DEFECT, THE IRANIAN ELECTION DEBACLE   
The Obamunists at Huffington Post were psyching themselves up for a Mousavi victory in Iran's election yesterday with the credit going to what is now being called "the Obama Effect": the magical miraculous messianic influence of Obama's irresistible intellect, personality and charm on world events. 
 
Ignoring North Korea's detonation of a nuclear device and saber rattling (it was Bush's fault) the Left, bolstered in its views by the defeat of Hezbollah in Lebanon (the Lebanese heard messiah Obama's Sermon from the Pyramids), anticipated Ahmadinejad going down in flames in Friday's election losing to Mousavi an Obama like challenger popular with young voters with a message of hope, reform and change.
 
But with 80% of the vote in it looks like a landslide win for Ahmadinejad and four more years of his confrontational, Islamist, anti-US presidency. What then are we to attribute Ahmad's stunning victory? Could it be that the "Bush Effect" of warmongering and fear is still very much with us? And that the timing of Iran's election was unfortunately too early into the Obama Era? Or is Obama to blame for this terrible turn of events on what could be called: THE OBAMA DEFECT: a weak and worthless Carter-like personality on the world stage easily resisted and ignored.

TUTOBAMANKHAMUN AND THE CURSE OF THE MUMMY

FROM APOLLOSPEAKS TOWNHALL ARCHIVES

Posted on WP 7-11-14

2009-06-12 08:03:38.000 -- TUTOBAMANKHAMUN AND THE CURSE OF THE MUMMY 

IS OBAMA LOOKING AT HIS REFLECTION IN A MIRROR?

The face of the linen-wrapped mummy  of King Tut is seen in his new glass case in his underground tomb in the famed Valley of the Kings in Luxor. The mummy of the young pharaoh, whose life and death has captivated people for nearly a century, was placed in a climate-controlled* glass box in the tomb, with only the face and feet showing under the linen covering. (AP Photo)

* Obama must have liked the part about the climate controlled box as the stinking mummy's corpse isn't giving off greenhouse gases.

MIRROR MIRROR ON THE WALL

WHO'S THE MIGHTEST OF THEM ALL?

IT'S THE GREAT BOY WONDER

GOD OF DE NILE, PHARAOH OF AMERICA,

TUTOBAMANAKHAMUN.

THE NEW KING TUT? OR KING PUTZ?

I find it fascinating that our divinely anointed president is being likened to the Egyptian Pharaoh Tutankhamun, the false god and totalitarian ruler of an ancient oppressive slave state. Those who are hailing Obama as the "new King Tut of the world" and wearing T-shirts  emblazoned with Obama's million dollar divine smiling  image as the ancient god-king are probably unaware that Tut's reign came to a sudden tragic end at the ripe young age of 19. Evidence from his mummy shows that Tut was the victim of murder having received a fatal blow to the back of his head.

Now that Obama has violated King Tut's tomb and is being hailed as his reincarnation could there be a deadly mummy's curse on his soul? Will Obama share the boy-king's dire fate? Like Harding and Kennedy, two senators turned President, will Obama prematurely die in office? Or will he complete his presidency and go down in history as King Putz, a failed, destructive, imperial President? I would rather die in office and keep the world guessing what could have been if I had lived than end my presidency in failure  like Buchanan, Grant, Herbert Hoover or Jimmy Carter.

OBAMA IN THE TOMB OF KAR

When Obama was doing his grand tour of the pyramids he wound up in the Tomb of Kar and noticed from a stone relief of Kar that he resembled him ears and all. The media reported that Kar was a priest, scholar and judge. What they didn't say was that this dignitary was High Priest of Pharoah's mortuary cult as in cult of the dead. Not a very promising omen.

THE EGYPTIAN MERCHANT

A happy prospering merchant in Cairo selling out his stock of King Tut Obama memorabilia said, prior to the President's visit, that "Obama is a good omen for world peace and like King Tut he's a young leader." What the merchant didn't say, or perhaps didn't know, is that Tut became Egypt's king at age 9, a 38 year difference from Obama's 47. But don't let Tutobamankhamun's age fool you. At heart he's an idiot leftist blunder child, an irresponsible, reckless teenager in a grown man's body, having something in common with the boy-king's immaturity. 

WHEN TUTOBAMA DIES

will his divine corpse be mummified and placed in the vault of a pyramid built beside Washington's obelesque with the tomb surrounded by choruses of Masons chanting hymns to the jackal headed Anubis, dark god of the dead?
