George W. Bush, for all his faults, recognized one very important fact about the world today, that the United Nations is a dog with no bite. From the sitting on their hands during the genocides in Serbia and Rwanda to their pitiful excuse for pressure on North Korea, the world’s evil dictators and terrorists can rest easy knowing that the UN has not been able to accomplish anything worthwhile in the modern era. Unfortunately, for them since Bush’s second term and for all of Obama’s present and probably future, the United States has placed the problems of nuclear proliferation on the UN’s table and, today, we reap some of the “benefits” of this soft approach. Today, Iran opened up its first nuclear power plant with the help of Russian engineers who claim that this plant can only be used for peaceful purposes (the Russian connection is something I’ll expose in later posts). This is a milestone for the Iranian nuclear weapons program, signaling that they are almost there. Now that Iranian scientists will have more firsthand knowledge and technical expertise when dealing with nuclear materials, with the UN’s stamp of approval of course, they will be even closer to producing a bomb… and to all those Iran apologists who claim that converting from energy production to nuclear bombs is very difficult, I have only to point out that prior to the Manhattan Project that produced our own nuclear weapons, we did not have a single nuclear plant and the effort only took a few years.
What this has to do with liberals is simple. It was the strong anti-war opposition of the Left during Bush and the strong pro-defeat attitudes of the Democrats in Washington who claimed that the war in Iraq was lost a few years ago, that soured the public mood and the political atmosphere when it came to questions of military intervention. I, for one, advocate minding one’s own business as much as possible, but not when existential threats to either our allies or ourselves emerge. Liberals don’t care about American security. The media has celebrated the current administrations actions when it comes to Iran, but the American people aren’t fooled. The clock is running out on the Iran issue and Obama’s government seems dead set on not letting anything stop Iran’s Islamic Republic from reaching their goals of nuclear-armed power. It is on issues like these that Obama’s love of Islam comes to the forefront. It is on issues like these the liberal’s tolerance of foreign dictators and terrorists comes to haunt us. The liberal agenda has only given extra time for America’s enemies to rearm and prepare their next attacks.
This inaction is intentional. This is part of the Obama agenda so eagerly embraced by the powers that be in our government. They (the media and far Leftists) saw how easy it was to convince the American public that our military policies were terrible, but they could only sell their case in the face of worsening conditions on the ground, by printing body counts in their headlines on a daily basis, and by smearing supporters of the war effort as hawks, imperialists, and just plain old bad people. In other words, the only way to disarm America is to make people want to disarm themselves. This cannot happen if it looks like the United States is winning, it cannot happen if the Taliban continue hiding in caves or if Iraqi insurgents are beaten back by the surge or if Iran is prevented from having nuclear weapons. Liberals point to a dangerous world as proof that we must retreat. They point to the devastation of nuclear weapons as proof that we must disarm, even if everyone one else is trying to acquire nuclear weapons. They want to mentally and physically disarm the American people so that we are more complacent, so that when they take away our Second Amendment rights we do nothing, so that they can keep the American public brain-dead simply accepting as truth their statements and the media’s “honest” reporting. It’s part of the plan. In this way, Iran’s rise as a nuclear power is part of domestic policy for the Democrats. The same Democrats that sat back and did nothing as the brave Iranian people rose up against their totalitarian rulers last year, only to watch them get massacred by the Islamic Republic’s goons. The same Democrats who branded Bush a failure in Iraq only to [implicitly] claim victory for themselves (if Bush’s gains hold) and withdraw during the Obama administration.
At this point in our history the goals of Global Islam and the liberal agenda coincide and will inexorably lead to the acquisition of nuclear weapons by our most dangerous enemies. Obama and his ilk are at peace with this fact because a world with strong enemies means that they can focus on dismantling America as opposed to protecting America. Notice that the advance of the welfare state occurred mainly under Democrat presidents and Congresses during the Cold War, a time when our enemies were strong. On the flip side, the revival of the conservative movement and the end of the entitlement mindset started after Reagan won the Cold War and our enemies were on the run. Freedom is closely linked to security, for only when we feel unsafe are we willing to surrender our freedoms. This is precisely the liberal left’s plan for all of us.
