With the laziness of the press, many of us have to speculate. Here's the story, as much as I can garner.
Remember the good ole' days?
One of our favorite countries did the world a mitzvah back then. On September 30th, 1980, Saddam's nuke factory was bombed and severely damaged.
If you guessed the invader was Israel or the USA, you'd be wrong.
Iran, with US hostages still trapped in Tehran, with Achmadinejad (Ah'm Mad) as one of their torturers, jetted into Iraq and bombed away!
Want more irony?
Israel finished the job on June 7th, 1981, to the condemnation of the UN…and relief of all neighboring Arab/Muslim countries in the Middle East, and yes, their ally, the USA.
Back then Israel and Iran were on the same page-survival.
How times have changed…and the chess board of survival has rearranged itself.
Now under the guise of a N. Korean/Iranian/Syrian terror triangle, Israel has blown up Syria's nuke program.
Once again the roar of protest from the oil rich Middle East Arab/Mullah despots has been as loud as Barry Bonds' mea culpa.
And what's the response of Syria? They're officially "studying" the matter. That's what children do when they get caught red-handed.
In the illusion of ignorance comes the mirage of arrogance
As for the rest of the world, how many would really want that nut job, Ah'm Mad, in Iran and his puppet in Syria, Assad Deuce, to be able to push a button and destroy 100,000's of thousands of innocent lives?
Based on the Ah'm Mad's bombed performance at Columbia, he may drop a real one on the campus. He was dizzier than Brittney Spears caught sober. The audacity of Columbia Colleges' president, Lee Bollinger's telling introduction of that vicious Jew hating, US troop murdering, gay baiting, and sanctimonious Hitler wannabe "guest" to the academic lib la la land. Then he was cross examined better than Scooter Libby.
The easiest way to abuse the truth is not to seek it
Like politicians at an ethics conference, we can never find a journalist when we need one. Most are busy unearthing old stories about why George Bush is a moron. When not bashing Bush they're in conference calls with Moveon.org along with the Democratic Party leadership, getting their weekly talking points on how to take over America, by bashing it before its enemies.
Back on July 23 of this year, 15 Syrian officers and "scores" of Iranian engineers were killed by a prophetic accident while making scud missile sundaes; rockets stuffed on top with sarin nerve gas and other wmd concoctions. On September 6th, the Israelis raided Syria and ferreted away nuclear material stamped "Made in N. Korea." You can bet your first child that if some Muslim terrorist grew a hangnail in Gitmo, the liberal press would be out of their minds with rage and a plethora of anti-American propaganda so they wouldn't risk the Soros scorn.
You had to search far and wide for timely info of the above.
When you straighten out your backbone the leeches tend to fall off
Then Israel flew in, despite the amazing new air defense systems in Iran…I mean Syria. and blew the whole nuke plant into smithereens…all with the approval and cooperation of the USA.
Don't kid yourself, though, Islamofacist hatred for Jews, Christians and Americans will fuel their persistence. And when they succeed in developing thermal nuclear weapons…or wmd stuffed missiles, who doubts, after Hezbollah's missile storm on the Jewish state a little over a year ago, that Ah'm Mad will try to become the newest whack-a-mole to stick his head out and attempt to murder 6 million Jews in the land of their ancestors, Israel?
Ah'm Mad has said as much…almost too many times to count.
And another point Mr./Ms Cory Spondent…Don't you wonder if some of those wmds had been flown or trucked out of Iraq to Syria, just like Iraqi General Georges Sada witnessed in the weeks before the start of the war?
If liberal President Bollinger can come out of his intellectual foxhole to tell the awful truth about Ah'm Mad, you can investigate the events that support the Iranian nut jobs' threats against Israel and the USA.
Ladies and Gentlemen of the press, STRAIGHTEN YOUR BACKBONES!
