Taqiyya two aspirin and call me in the morning
Historic! Obama and the Iranian President spoke and even Tweeted! — the first time the leaders of those two terrorist countries (Iran supports Hezbollah, etc., while the US harbors the TEA Party terrorists) have spoken since radical Islamists stormed the US embassy and took hostages, whom the trotted out as props as a thumb to the eye of our last progressive President, Jimmy Carter!
But here we are, enjoying a tremendous breakthrough on the diplomatic front. I know this because the left keeps telling me so. Breathlessly, even! Two moderate pragmatists, serious men of ideas, sitting down and rolling up their sleeves to achieve a world of “coexist” bumperstickers and unicorns farts that combat greenhouse gas emissions! How can you teabaggers object?
Except that Obama is no moderate, post-partisan pragmatist (as many of us have long known) and is instead a committed Marxist activists (yes, Marxist, Rick Moran. No matter what wikipedia tells you); and the moderate reformist Hassan Rowhani? Well, turns out he’s just shining on the narcissist in chief and the media enablers who surround him and prop up his effete “leadership”:
In a newly revealed videotape of a pre-election interview, Iran’s new president bragged about deceiving the West over the Islamic regime’s illicit nuclear program and claimed credit for vastly expanding it.
Hassan Rowhani, dubbed a “moderate and reformist” by worldwide media in June after his election, took the oath of office Sunday with the blessing of the supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.
However, the video shows Rowhani is anything but a moderate – one who not only is committed to the ideals and goals of the Islamic regime, but also who proudly boasted of his deceptions during his tenure as the regime’s nuclear negotiator starting in October 2003 in talks with France, Britain and Germany.
“The day that we invited the three European ministers (to the talks), only 10 centrifuges were spinning at (the Iranian nuclear facility of) Natanz,” Rowhani said on the tape. “We could not produce one gram of U4 or U6 (uranium hexafluoride). … We did not have the heavy-water production. We could not produce yellow cake. Our total production of centrifuges inside the country was 150.”
But then Rowhani admitted the purpose of prolonged negotiations: “We wanted to complete all of these – we needed time.”
As I’ve never held any illusions that any Iranian leader sanctioned by the Ayatollah would deal with the West in good faith, the only question of any real interest to me now is this: is Obama a delusional, self-aggrandizing fool who is being suckered by the Iranians as a result of ideological blinders and a teenage girl’s view of the world? Or is he actively complicit — with a nuclear armed Iran part of the President’s plan to re-jigger the balance of power around. Because slavery and imperialism and Zionists!
Right now, I’m leaning toward all of the above. But I reserve the right to change my vote to “Bill Ayers slipped O a rufey at one of the aspiring Senator’s man parties and had a transmitter planted in Obama’s brain” or “holy shit! Instead of the Stepford Wives, the progressives have given us a Stepford President! And they even stick him in mom jeans from time to time to make him seem more real!”
The jury is still out, in other words.
