Democrats give Iran everything it wants as it pretends to stop going nuclear

Democrats just appeased Iran with everything they wanted in exchange for literally nothing but empty promises. Iran’s in-your-face terror-sponsoring regime–which constantly starts proxy wars, denies the holocaust, and chants “Death to America! Death to Israel!” in the streets–will now have $150 billion more with which to fund and arm jihadists, modernize its air force, develop weapons, arm itself to the teeth (by purchasing massive weapons stockpiles from Russia), and exert its influence across the Middle East.

This regime has already been repeatedly caught lying about its nuclear program during the negotiations, and is currently pouring asphalt over its nuclear sites to hide its most recent violations. And contrary to everything Democrats promised us about being able to conduct inspections anytime, anywhere, we now must give this lunatic Islamo-fascist regime (which was installed by Democrats under Carter) twenty-four days notice before we conduct any inspections.

Newsflash: History repeats.

Iran will break every single promise it made (just like North Korea did when Democrats gave them fuel, money, and nuclear technology to not go nuclear, and just like the Nazis did when their endless acts of aggression were appeased at every turn), and Democrats will continue doing nothing as it goes nuclear right under his nose, in broad daylight–which this deal even guarantees in writing by preventing the sanctions from being reintroduced without a complicated resolution process. And Israel will continue to be condemned as a warmonger anytime it even considers fighting back in any way.

Democrats didn’t even try to get the four Americans wrongly imprisoned by Iran released. We had all the advantages and folded with a royal flush. The U.S. got literally nothing out of this catastrophic surrender except a destabilizing regional arms race and inevitable war between Israel and Iran at some point, now possibly on a nuclear scale. This is what happens when liberals–the people who burn our flag, ban our Pledge, aid our enemies, betray our allies, and decimate our military–are allowed anywhere near positions of power. It happens every single time.

Democrats’ 15 worst foreign policy disasters

As difficult as it is to narrow down and rank the 15 most devastating liberal policy failures over so many decades of relentless Democrat incompetence and treason, here are the most costly and destructive examples:

15) Outraging and alienating our allies around the world by illegally spying on their citizens, using drones to illegally assassinate people at will, and lying about closing down Guantanamo Bay.

14) Enthusiastically embracing the “Arab Spring” on the anniversary of 9/11, as violent Muslim fanatics stormed our embassy in Egypt, tore down and desecrated our flag, and set the stage for widespread public bloodshed.

13) Drawing a “red line” on Syria’s chemical weapons, only to stand there and do nothing (except lie about having drawn that red line) as Syria mass-murdered its civilians while laughing in our face.

12) Appeasing Russia on every front, only to be defied, mocked, and humiliated as Putin promptly began invading his neighbors, oppressing his people, and flagrantly provoking us with impunity.

11) Snatching defeat from the jaws of victory in Vietnam.

10) Abandoning four Americans to be dragged through the streets and tortured to death by bloodthirsty Islamic savages in Benghazi, and then falsely portraying it as the result of Americans having the right to disagree with Islam in public.

9) Releasing five major terrorist leaders to appease the Taliban into releasing one America-hating deserter.

8) Appeasing North Korea with money, fuel, and nuclear technology as it went nuclear.

7) Betraying our moderate ally in Iran (the Shah) to replace him with Iran’s current lunatic Islamo-fascist regime.

6) Dismantling our missile defenses as Iran and North Korea went nuclear.

5) Betraying our most critical ally in the Middle East to appease Iran’s terror-sponsoring regime as it went nuclear.

4) Absolutely gutting the military budget to the bone, compromising national defense and emboldening our enemies by signaling to the world that the US no longer has the will or means to confront foreign threats.

3) Bill Clinton’s eight-year non-response to constant al Qaida attacks leading up to 9/11 (retreat from bin Laden in Somalia, first WTC attack, barracks bombing in Saudi Arabia, embassy bombings in Africa, USS Cole, etc.).

2) Handing Afghanistan back to the Taliban–the terror-sponsoring regime that facilitated 9/11.

1) Ignoring all the experts and rushing out of Iraq before their government was fully ready to take over, thereby effectively handing the country to al Qaida…after they had already been defeated there and driven out.

Of course, this list doesn’t even include the scores of other jaw-dropping liberal policy disasters that have plagued this country for the last seventy years, like the Bay of Pigs catastrophe (which caused the Cuban Missile Crisis), or Democrats losing China to the communists…or their endless domestic policy failures.

Top ten liberal lies about Iraq

Now that the news media are finally being forced to admit that Iraq was a success (at least, until Democrat rushed in and snatched defeat from the jaws of victory), here are the top ten falsehoods liberals have used to destroy public support for this war:

10. Iran and North Korea were the more urgent threats.

The lunatic regimes Democrats installed in Iran and appeased in North Korea had already acquired dangerous weapons and had not yet defied twelve years of U.N. Resolutions (which liberals insist wasn’t enough time for Saddam). What happened to trying diplomacy first?

Stopping Saddam from building more dangerous weapons was clearly far more urgent.

9. The Iraqis never wanted us there.

Contrary to everything liberals tell us, the Iraqis really did greet us as liberators. And long after we went into Iraq, the Iraqi people continued to support us and the invasion. It was only after Iran and Syria began sending foreign fighters across the borders to conduct vicious sectarian terrorism campaigns that public opinion started to change…at which point liberals immediately rushed in and began incessantly misrepresenting this manufactured violence as Iraqis rebelling against some un-welcome “occupation,” and deeming the entire war a hopeless and unwinnable “quagmire.”

Liberals also naturally rushed in to protect Iran and Syria as they openly instigated, armed and funded the attacks on our troops…while demanding more groveling, appeasement and surrender from the U.S., even though such terrorist regimes have openly admitted that meeting with them merely legitimizes their cause.

8. Bush had no plan (‘Mission Accomplished’).

Between telling us the war was lost, that the surge would never work and that Iraq was a “distraction” (apparently we should wait for eachindividual terror-sponsor to hit us separately before acting against any of them), Democrats constantly accused Bush of not having a plan. This was before they took office and adopted his plan entirely. That plan was simply to rebuild the country and leave when the Iraqis could take over.

This was made clear in the “Mission Accomplished” speech, along with the fact that the rebuilding process would be long and difficult. Liberals naturally responded by pretending the “Mission Accomplished” sign meant President Bush was prematurely claiming that the entire war was over, rather than just the initial invasion, thus inventing a bogus gaffe out of thin air.

7. The war has killed hundreds of thousands of Iraqi civilians.

Not even close. Liberals have repeatedly been caught wildly exaggerating Iraqi casualties, fabricating horror stories and falsely trashing our troops. Additionally, they have insisted since the beginning on talking only about the one tiny triangle of the country with all of the problems. This would be like judging California (which is the same size as Iraq) solely by the ghettos of L.A..

It completely ignores things like the lives saved by us killing terrorists (as well as how much better off the Shiites, Kurds, women and Israelis are).

6. We rushed in unilaterally.

After years of failed diplomacy, we went in with a coalition of forty different countries. France, Germany and Russia were too busy protecting their corrupt, behind-the-scenes dealings with Saddam (in blatant defiance of UN Resolutions) to lift a finger.

5. The war was illegal.

As Front Page Magazine has explained, the (endless) U.N. Resolutions authorized the war:

Saddam was an international outlaw. He had violated the 1991 Gulf War truce and all the arms control agreements it embodied, including UN resolutions 687 and 689, and the 15 subsequent UN resolutions designed to enforce them. The last of these, UN Security Council Resolution 1441, was itself a war ultimatum to Saddam giving him “one final opportunity” to disarm – or else. The ultimatum expired on December 7, 2002, and America went to war three months later.

4. We didn’t give diplomacy a chance.

Here is the 12-year time-line of exhaustive diplomatic efforts that preceded the war.

3. All we did was turn the Islamic world against us.

Newsflash: They already hated us. Iraq was invaded after 9/11, after eight years of unanswered al Qaida attacks and after decades of unprovoked attacks before that. It didn’t start with us finally deciding to fight back. In fact, it was only once we started drawing the enemy away from U.S. soil and onto a Middle Eastern battlefield (part of Bush’s stated objective) that we went seven years without a single domestic terrorist attack.

Fighting back does create more terrorists, but so does not fighting back, as Democrats demonstrated when they retreated from Islamic terrorists in Somalia. Bin Laden responded by calling the American soldier a “paper tiger” without the “stomach for war” and by using it to recruit more terrorists. We need to stop worrying about creating more terrorists and just focus on stopping them.

These are the people who poured into the streets by the thousands all around the world to dance and celebrate on 9/11 (a fact liberals unsuccessfully tried to dismiss). They attack us for the same reason that they attack everyone else–Islam is a savage cult that stones women to death for being raped, starts deadly global riots over cartoons and is obsessed with slaughtering infidels.

2. Saddam had no ties with terrorists.

According to the 9/11 Commission Report, Hussein made pacts with al Qaida (pg. 61), offered bin Laden safe haven (pg. 66) and offered to help al Qaida with chemical and biological weapons (pg. 128). He also sheltered al Qaida terrorists, openly sponsored suicide bombers and provided safe haven to notorious terrorist fugitive Abu Abbas.

Additionally, the news media copiously documented the connections until the moment Republicans wanted to remove Saddam.

1. There were no WMD.

Even after giving Saddam 9 months to hide his WMD in Syria while we publicly debated invading, we still found thousands of artillery shells filled with mustard and sarin gas (many with still-lethal purity levels as high as 84%). We also found nearly two tons of low-enriched Uranium, vials of live botulism, a seven-pound block of cyanide salt, and more.

Saddam Hussein had WMD, and repeatedly demonstrated his willingness to use them on civilian populations. And according to the FBI agent who questioned him, Saddam openly admitted that he was aggressively seeking to finish reconstituting his WMD program. This is consistent with other inconvenient truths, like the fact that he sent a delegation to Niger in 1999 to “expand commercial relations”…with a country that only exports Uranium (another fact liberals have humiliated and discredited themselves trying to lie about).

Tapes recovered after the fall of Baghdad even reveal Hussein discussing how to launch a terrorist attack on U.S. soil with WMD.

The bottom line: Liberals saw the same evidence as President Bush and drew the same conclusions as he did. After 9/11, genocidal terror-sponsors obsessed with WMD, who had already been through more than a decade of failed UN diplomacy, simply could no longer be tolerated. Contrary to everything we have been told, the invasion of Iraq was absolutely urgent and necessary…and Democrats emphatically agreed at the time.

Fact-Check: Bill Clinton’s policies were a total disaster

Since Bill Clinton has taken it upon himself to come out and inform us all that this astronomical deficit spending, rampant joblessness, endless upheaval in the Middle East and yet another credit downgrade under Democrats is them “taking us in the right direction,” perhaps a brief examination of what Clinton’s policies actually accomplished is in order.

Let’s review:

  • Bill Clinton had the good fortune to be in office when an economic explosion from the tech boom he had nothing to do with happened to take place.
  • He was also dragged kicking and screaming by Republicans into the welfare reforms he now takes credit for (which were eventually undone by Obamacare, contrary to everything we’re told) and left President Bush with a recession.
  • He shoved sweeping tax hikes down our throats, which kept the economy treading water rather than growing for four years straight, until Republicans took control of Congress and forced through massive tax cuts, which started unleashing rapid economic growth within a year.
  • He threatened to drag banks into court, have them fined, branded as racist and driven into ruin if they didn’t lower their lending standards and start giving out more bad loans to unqualified people…which eventually destroyed the housing market and collapsed the economy (as I have explained).
  • Even if you ignore the fact that nobody was making these ludicrous loans to people who had no means of paying them back until Democrats got involved and forced them to (while federally insuring their losses, guaranteeing maximum recklessness) and accept the left’s bogus talking point that it was Republican deregulation that somehow caused the problem…it was Bill Clinton who signed the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (the legislation they try to blame) into law.
  • He also put Bin Laden on the map and convinced him that the American soldier is a “paper tiger” without the stomach for war by retreating from him in Somalia, and then responded to years of al Qaida attacks by repeatedly refusing to capture or kill Bin Laden, making it illegal for the CIA, FBI and police to communicate about terrorist threats, and imposing insane PC airport policies that allowed known terrorist threats aboard our planes on 9/11.

It’s just a thought, but perhaps we should be taking our advise from someone other than the guy who destroyed the economy and caused the most horrific terrorist attack in history.
