Hey Barack, whatcha gonna do about it?
Iran’s Islamofascist “leader” Mahmoud Ahmadinejad today repeated a prediction he’s made before about the fate of Israel, and where he’d like to see it end up:
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad predicted on Monday that Muslims would uproot “satanic powers” and repeated his controversial belief that Israel will soon disappear, the Mehr news agency reported.
“I must announce that the Zionist regime (Israel), with a 60-year record of genocide, plunder, invasion and betrayal is about to die and will soon be erased from the geographical scene,” he said.
“Today, the time for the fall of the satanic power of the United States has come and the countdown to the annihilation of the emperor of power and wealth has started.”
Since taking the presidency in August 2005, Ahmadinejad has repeatedly provoked international outrage by predicting Israel is doomed to disappear.
“I tell you that with the unity and awareness of all the Islamic countries all the satanic powers will soon be destroyed,” he said to a group of foreign visitors ahead of the 19th anniversary of the death of revolutionary leader Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini.
Now that sounds like a guy who can be reasoned with with a round of one on one, unconditional “talks,” eh?
On the same day Ahmeanie made his remarks, John McCain gave a speech to AIPAC, where he outlined the US’ steadfast support of Israel and why we should continue to do so, emphasized again how reckless it would be for a head of state to meet with Ahmadinejad without preconditions, and layed out his proposal for how to deal with the Iranian regime.
Thankfully, on the issue of the terrorist threat from Iran, at least one of the remaining presidential candidates gets it. Unfortunately, current polling suggests Obama would have the advantage over McCain with the electoral college if the election was taking place today. Luckily, we have several months to go for McCain to continue to make his case that in a time of war, the man with little experience whose naivety could cost lives by taking us back to a pre-9/11 mindset should not be America’s first option as Commander in Chief.
