WASHINGTON: It was a moment of moral and civil clarity. America watching as President Donald Trump announces he would pull the United States out of the Iran nuclear deal. It’s also known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JPOC). That he would collapse former President Obama’s anti-colonial, Iranian fallacy, known as the Iran Nuclear Deal.
The President, prior to his erasure of Obama and former Secretary of State John Kerry’s proudest Anti-America moment, stated:
“Over the years, Iran and its proxies have bombed American Embassies and military installations, murdered hundreds of American service members, and kidnapped, imprisoned, and tortured American citizens. No action taken by the [Iranian] regime has been more dangerous than its pursuit of nuclear weapons – and the means of delivering them.”
Death to America’s Iran nuclear deal!
In short, President Trump reminded Americans that our nation has been in a state of war with Iran since 1979. That year, goons loyal to Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini stormed the United States Embassy in Tehran.
They held fifty-two Americans hostage for 444 days.
The Iran capitulation of President Obama
The president reminded Americans that his predecessor, President Obama, who capitulated in the face of Iranian crimes and aggression.
“In theory, the so-called ‘Iran deal’ was supposed to protect the United States and our allies from the lunacy of an Iranian nuclear bomb, a weapon that will only endanger the survival of the Iranian regime. In other words, at the point when the United States had maximum leverage, this disastrous deal gave this regime – and it’s a regime of great terror – many billions of dollars, some of it in actual cash – a great embarrassment to me as a citizen and to all citizens of the United States.”
Obama’s early Iran obsession
Indeed, the Iran nuclear deal was the culmination of a diplomatic initiative begun one month after Obama assumed office in 2009. In a video message to Iranians celebrating the Persian holiday Nowruz, Obama says:
“I would like to speak directly to the people and leaders of the Islamic Republic of Iran. We know that you are a great civilization, and your accomplishments have earned the respect of the United States and the world. For nearly three decades, relations between our two nations have been strained. Indeed, you will be celebrating your New Year in much the same way that we Americans mark our holidays – by gathering with friends and family, exchanging gifts and stories, and looking to the future with a renewed sense of hope. Within these celebrations lies the promise of a new day, the promise of opportunity for our children, security for our families, progress for our communities, and peace between nations. Those are shared hopes, those are common dreams.”
A need for Churchillian clarity over pro-Iranian rhetoric
The New Year celebrations in Nazi Germany were no doubt similar to those enjoyed by Americans during World War II. Germany, too, was a “great civilization”; one that drafted science and industrial efficiency into the bloody business of mass murder. Rather than highlighting similarities, British Prime Minister Winston Churchill brought much-needed clarity. He warned of the consequences to befall us should we lose the war to the morally reprobate Axis:
“If we fail, then the whole world, including the United States, including all that we have known and cared for, will sink into the abyss of a new Dark Age made more sinister, and perhaps more protracted, by the lights of perverted science.”
Does anyone really believe Iran’s clerics to be less dedicated to their supremacy than Hitler was to the Aryan race? Are they less faithful to their ruthless religious ideology than the Nazis’ notions of ancient Teutonic supermen and racial purity?
The White House Churchill bust
Speaking of Churchill, do you recall after Obama’s inauguration, he removed a bust of Winston Churchill from the Oval Office?
When first reported by the London Daily Telegraph, White House Communications Director Dan Pfeiffer said it was “100 percent false. The Bust is still in the White House.”
Dinesh D’Souza hits the anti-colonial nail on the head
But for one keen-eyed observer, it was a teachable moment.
Appearing on Glenn Beck’s television show to promote his documentary, “2016: Obama’s America,” author and documentary maker Dinesh D’Souza notes:
“This man, Winston Churchill, is known to most Americans as the great fighter of the Nazis. But, when I was growing up as a kid in Mumbai (Bombay), we learned more about the other Churchill. And this was the Churchill who, from his young years, was a colonialist. He rode with the colonial armies in Afghanistan. He was with Lord Kitchener in the Sudan. Later, he became the colonial secretary in charge of all the colonies.”
“Remember that anti-colonialism burst on the world in the 50s and 60s. And the Cold War was raging. And for all these newly independent countries, they wanted to be anti-Western, anti-British. So, how do you be anti-Western? Who was America’s enemy? The Soviet Union. So, it became natural for all these guys to say, ‘We’re against these guys [the West]. We embrace the Soviets. We embrace socialism. We go the other way.”
Moreover, it was D’Souza’s theory that with socialism was no longer presenting a formidable counterweight to U.S. imperialism. As a result, Obama saw his diplomatic outreach to terrorist Iran as only natural.
Iran’s terrorist networks give the rogue regime global reach.
This while simultaneously providing its ruling clerics plausible deniability when perpetrating atrocities against their people and the world.
By aiding Iran’s development of weapons through an unenforceable nuclear deal, America’s standing as the world’s only nuclear superpower erodes.
And this anti-colonial, multi-polar world acts as a counter-balance to American imperialism, requiring that Third World rogues have nukes.
John Kerry backs up D’Souza’s theory
As if to add verification to D’Souza’s theory, former Secretary of State John Kerry engaged in desperate shuttle diplomacy. He desperately pursued negotiations with his former diplomatic counterparts in Iran and Europe to save the deal.
You may recall that in 1971, a young anti-Vietnam War veteran, John Kerry, testified before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee:
“We found that not only was it [the war in Vietnam] a civil war – an effort by a people that for years have been seeking their liberation from any colonial influence whatsoever – but also, we found that the Vietnamese whom we had enthusiastically molded after our own image, were hard put to pick up the fight against the threat that we were supposedly saving them from. We found that most people didn’t know the difference between communism and democracy.” (Emphasis added)
John Kerry forgets the lessons of Vietnam
However, in Kerry’s rush to moral equivalence, he failed to admit the real “liberation from any colonial influence.” The “liberation” is actually communist ideology. That dogma, hatched by a German in Britain, adopted by Russians for colonial export to places like, you know, Vietnam.
Moreover, Kerry and Obama’s fear of American “colonial influence” requires allowing Iran to export its religious ideology under the safety of a nuclear umbrella.
Lucky for America and the world, President Trump is determined to deny Iran the ability to sink the Western World “into the abyss of a new Dark Age made more sinister, and perhaps more protracted, by the lights of perverted science.”
