“I agree with the intel community that we assess that they [the North Koreans] have the ability, they have the weapons, and they have the ability to miniaturize those weapons, and they have the ability to put them on a rocket that can range the [U.S.] homeland.” ~ Adm. William Gortney, Northcom Commander, responsible for defending the United States from long-range missile attack.
The Obama administration seems delusional about the threats we face and clueless about how to counter them. Others must fill the gaps, and 2016 should be a national-security election. Hopefully, we will elect a president and congress who understand the urgent strategic perils America faces—worldwide, and especially in the Middle East. We quite literally have no time to waste.
“But I don’t want to go among the mad people,” Alice remarked. “Oh, you can’t help that,” said the [Cheshire] cat, “We’re all mad here. I’m Mad, you’re mad.” “How do you know I’m mad?” said Alice. “You must be,” said the cat, “or else you wouldn’t have come here.” ~ Lewis Carol, Alice in Wonderland.
As the clock winds down on the near-term destiny of the terrible Nuclear Deal with Iran, a long-standing threat from Iran’s ally, North Korea, again raises its ugly head. Will we pay attention? Or also continue to ignore it and its ties to Iran?
After closing the deal, to Israel: “You will not be around in 25 years’ time, and God willing, there will be no Zionist regime in 25 years.” To America: “America, in a way, has divided its duties with Iran and behaves in a twofold way; some smile while others are busy producing legislation against Iran.” … Supreme Leader Grand Ayatollah Khamenei … with chants in the background of “Death to America”
Today, we remember those nearly 3000 who died 14 years ago in the 9/11 jihadi attack on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon—and the failed attack on the White House or the Capitol, thanks to the efforts of those passengers who took United Flight 93 down in Pennsylvania. We are still concerned about additional jihadi attacks on our homeland—and that our leaders are not doing all they can to protect us and our security interests around the world.
Yogi Berra’s famous challenge to continue pursuing victory even when things look most discouraging applies in spades to those seeking somehow to defeat the President and his congressional allies in their pursuit of the terrible nuclear Deal with Iran. Happily there are still ways to justify hope that this terrible Deal can be defeated or at least seriously degraded.
Time is running out for preventing Iran from fully developing nuclear weapons—a process that has been underway for many years, contrary to the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty (NPT) regime—to which Iran is a signatory. In-depth analyses of the technical facts should inform the debate on the pending deal, but has been missing—and yesterday a letter to President Obama and shared with the Capitol Hill leadership should enable needed debate on the merits of the proposed Deal.
The pending Deal with Iran is little to no help in preventing metastasizing of the Iranian nuclear threat. Indeed it could become a capstone for Iran gaining confidence in the deliverable capability it has pursed for many years, i.e., via a deliberate path toward nuclear weapons and the means to deliver them—to attack the “Little Satan” Israel and the “Great Satan” America.
We are entering a dangerous period during which the Middle East may become embroiled in a nuclear war between Israel and Iran—and consequences from that war could extend well beyond the Middle East, even to America with existential implications. Unless something happens to persuade Congress to block President Obama’s “Deal with Iran,” such dire events could follow shortly. And time is running out.
