Tonight (actually a few hours from now in the Middle East) begins Rosh Hashanah. The Jewish New Year. Readers will remember the Yom Kippur war?
This week we have seen uprisings all over the middle east- savages using a pretext to attack US embassies and consulates. Assassinating a United States Ambassador and numerous others. (I should note Germany and the UK has also had facilities attacked.)
Our citizens(non-essential personnel) have now been told to evacuate Tunisia and Sudan.
Our government and the so called media have insisted this latest round of insanity was caused by a youtube clip. Are Americans really that dumb?
The latest round of barbarism began on September 11th. It should be noted that on September 10th it was reported that the Taliban had threatened Prince Harry, currently deployed to Afghanistan. Unconfirmed reports indicated the September 11th protests were called for as early as late August. The White House pressured Youtube to pull the clip which has been taking the blame. (Youtube has so far refused- but has shut down access in most Islamofascist countries.) The Egyptian prime minister has called on Obama to punish those who exercise their First Amendment rights to free speech. Obama caved and had a person brought in for questioning. Sharia Law anyone?
The crazy men in Iran have defied international pressure and continued on their quest to produce an atomic bomb. The asshat installed at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave snubbed Prime Minister Netanyahu. Yet Obama has a scheduled meeting with Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood prime minister.
There is no telling what really caused the burning and riots and assassinations this week. September 11th is a good enough excuse for the 6th century barbarians. Anyone think Democrats spiking the ball and chanting Osama is dead may have pissed them off? Anyone think the public spectacle at the Dem convention over God and Jerusalem as the capital of Israel may have emboldened them? Things are not looking good. At all. Appeasement never works. (See Hitler) The High Holy Days are upon us, the world stands on the brink of chaos and we have a narcissistic egomaniac in the White House who can never make a stand FOR our allies.
Which is why I say thank God we have scheduled international exercises in the Persian Gulf. At least there will be some chance of our coming to the defense of the only Democracy in the Middle East should the shit hit the fan for the High Holy Days. Though I never would have known that had I not read an article detailing the latest threats from Iran. It was buried at the bottom of an article.
Jafari’s comments come as U.S.-led naval forces from the West and Arab allies gather for naval maneuvers in the Persian Gulf that include mine-sweeping exercises.
