Yesterday President Obama spoke at American University amid pressure that Congress might not stand with him on his historic achievement with Iran. There, he lashed out in one of the pettiest, mean-spirited speeches I can ever remember a president giving. He compared Republicans who oppose his Iran deal to the supporters of Islamic terror (failing to mention that many Democrats oppose the deal).
And he said this:
“This deal is not just the best choice among alternatives, this is the strongest nonproliferation agreement ever negotiated.”
First, that is ludicrous! Secondly, it is quite arrogant …“ever negotiated.” I am sure Neville Chamberlain was just as convinced that his ‘historic’ peace deal with Adolf Hitler saved Europe. On September 30th, 1938, the British PM declared from a window at 10 Downing St:
My good friends, This is the second time in our history that there has come back from Germany to Downing Street peace with honor. I believe it is peace for our time. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts. And now I recommend you to go home and sleep quietly in your beds.
On paper, everything seemed good. But Hitler, like the Iranian leadership, was a belligerent psychopath. You don’t make deals with the Devil and expect the Devil to live up to his side. Not so long after Chamberlain’s peace achievement, German bombs rained down on England, not to mention, the 20,000,000 dead Russian soldiers, the gobbling up of Europe by Hitler and of course, the six million Jewish civilians of Europe who were exterminated. And that bring us to Israel.
Obama said. “And because this is such a strong deal, every nation in the world that has commented publicly with the exception of the Israeli government has expressed support.”
It is simply stunning to see an America president so naïve and so willing to throw its best friend under the nuclear bus, in order to embrace its worst enemy. Let’s examine Obama’s words.
