Hello. Hey! Two Posts in a Row! Alert the Media! Actually, I wanted to respond to Proudhillbilly’s remarks. Now, Proud is probably correct, but it would take a while for the Saudis to gear up a Nuclear Bomb Production Line, unless they get some Nukes from Pakistan. And I wouldn’t put it past them.
But that’s kinda “Medium Term.” What about the Short Term? Well, in spite of Chuckie Schumer telling Obama to Shove it, it doesn’t look good. You see, for the U.S. Sanctions to work, a bunch of Demacommies would have to Vote “No” next month, and Obama vowed to Veto the Attempt to “Destroy His Legacy!” THEN we need a bunch of Dems to Vote to Override his Veto, and right now, that looks Iffy. And even then, this whole rigamarole only applies to Sanctions that the U.S. CONGRESS imposes, and we know that Barack will pull all the Executive Branch Sanctions off, and ignore the Congressional ones.
After all, when has he Obeyed a Law he didn’t like?
PLUS, this Legislation will have ZERO effect on the Euros lifting their Sanctions, the Russians (HA!) Lifting theirs, etc. And do YOU want to be the Navy Captain who tries to stop the Russian Cargo Ship carrying the New and Improved S-300 Air Defense Missiles to Iran that Putin just announced he’s shipping? I wouldn’t.
So those of you who are History Buffs who think this smells a lot like Chamberlain and Hitler and Czechoslovakia in 1938, well, I’m with you.
And we all know what Hitler did to Poland in 1939.
However, there is ONE “Fly in the Ointment” to at least slow down the Process until we get a President who decides to OBEY HIS OATH OF OFFICE, and that’s the Israelis.
However, that’s going to be Iffy. You see, no wait, go dig out a Map of the Middle East and check out the Distances from Israel to Iran. I’ll wait.
Everyone got it? Yeah, it’s a LOOOONG Haul, and the IDFs Strike Craft will have to do some Mid-Air Refueling, provide a LOT of AWACS and Top Cover, and there’s no guarantee that all the Planes will make it.
Unless the Saudis help them.
You see, if a bunch of “Jordanian-marked F-16s” just so happen to fly into Saudi close to the Iraqi Border for “Joint Operations” against ISIS/ISIL/IS/^%*&&*&& Terrorists, and they just so happen to head East instead of North, well…
And even then, it’s Shaky, because Barack and Hillary “Blessed” the Shiites of IRAQ with running the Country, and THEY have their Heads so far up the IRANIANS ASSES, that I wouldn’t be surprised if the Iraqi Radar Stations would Squeal as soon as they saw the planes passing overhead.
So it can be done, but Man Oh Man, it’d be Tough.
The Other Option would be if the Israelis launched the Nukes that they refuse to Confirm or Deny that they have.
And the rest of the World would have to NOT launch theirs back at Tel Aviv.
And of course, even if the Saudis go with the “Enemy of My Enemy is My Friend Option,” whose to say that the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA INTELLIGENCE OPERATIONS UNDER THE ORDER OF THE COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF WOULDN’T SQUEAL TO THE IRANIANS?
REMEMBER, BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA SAT IN A “CHURCH” FOR TWENTY YEARS LISTENING TO SOME ASSHOLE SAYING “GODDAMN THE JEWS!”
Why American Jews keep on backing The Anointed One is beyond me.
So, as far as I can see it, there’s no good way to keep the Iranians from getting Nuclear Weapons if they want them. And they have enough Radioactive Material that they could convert THOUSANDS of Standard Explosives into “Dirty Bombs.”
Remember the Iranian-Run Truck Bomb that blew up the Marine Barracks in Lebanon in 1983? What if the Rescuers had to go into a Radioactive Hell-Hole?
And of course, we’re talking about a HIGHLY Educated, Technologically Advanced Country run by Fanatics who think it’s THEIR HOLY MISSION TO RUN THE MIDDLE EAST AND LIBERATE JERUSALEM FROM THE INFIDELS AND THE JEWS AND BRING BACK THE GLORY DAYS OF CYRUS THE GREAT!
IN OTHER WORDS, THEY WANT A NUCLEAR ARMED, RADICAL ISLAMIC VERSION OF THE PERSIAN EMPIRE! REMEMBER, THE NAZIS CONVINCED THE PERSIANS JUST BEFORE WW2 TO CHANGE THEIR NAME TO THE FARSI VERSION OF “ARYAN!”
So if the Israelis do make a Strike to Stop this Madness from happening, they should name it OPERATION LEONIDAS.
And let’s hope that they have enough Spartans to pull it off.
So how do the Israelis say “NEVER AGAIN” IN GREEK? SIMPLE: MOLON LABE.
And if the Israelis do go for it, may they be successful. Or else WE have to deal with them.
Bubblehead Les Out.
