I’m sorry if you’re tired of war. So am I and so are all thinking, intelligent and rational humans. But, more and greater wars appear to be coming. On Thursday, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s spokesman, Hamid Reza Asef, not only congratulated terrorist-Hamas for its victory but, said: "The result of these elections will reinforce the unity of the Palestinian people in defending their rights. The massive participation of the Palestinians shows their will to continue the struggle and resistance against occupation."
Note: Except for the Palestinians occupying land given to them by Israel, there is no “occupation”.
Senior Hamas leader Khaled Mashaal added that not only were Iran and Hamas "part of a united front against the enemies of Islam" but, it vowed to "expand the battlefield in Palestine." This is what happens when a country gives up its land to terrorists who have vowed to destroy their benefactor. Question: Are there any liberals out there, still hanging onto the ability to think rationally, who can now see clearly that appeasement doesn’t work?
In regards to Iran developing nuclear weapons, there are those who already believe that it is well on its way. To top those thoughts off, satellite surveillance shows that the buildings Iran has already constructed, to conduct “peaceful nuclear research”, are identical to Pakistan’s nuclear weapons’ complex. Peaceful? Not a chance.
Iran is well on its way to becoming the nuclear threat that could (or will) blow the planet off of its axis. Think I’m exaggerating? I’m not. Ahmadinejad has already said that it is his plan to “wipe Israel off the map”, he has said he wants to destroy the US (and possibly Europe) and has, also, said that he plans to establish a fundamental worldwide Islamic state. That is what we are up against, folks. And one cannot negotiate with madmen who are determined to rule the world. If they cannot rule the world (that is of the world’s people do not acquiesce to their demands), they have already told us that they will have no problem destroying it.
So, you say you’re tired of war? Then, I’d suggest that you get some sleep—and a lot of it—because it appears that war is about to explode planet-wide; with fanatics ready to push the buttons to release the attendant dogs. And this was all predicted over 2,000 years ago. Better get used to it. It’s just about to come to pass.
