Election tension in Iran is playing hell with President Obama and his kiss-up-to-Islam strategy. I don’t think the problems in Iran will influence American Foreign Policy much though. Here, I will explain why President Obama will not speak out strongly against the violence in Iran.
The tension in Iran comes from alleged voter fraud in their recent Presidential Election. President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was declared the victor over challenger Mir-Hossein Mousavi. Almost immediately protestors took to the streets to proclaim their displeasure at what they say is a fake election. Riot police and military have been attacking the protesters (mostly younger Iranians) since. We do not have an accurate death count because of the Iranian crackdown on reporters.
Americans and others on the social networking site Twitter have taken up the cause. There are many Iranian’s on the site reporting what is going on. Sadly some of these are not Iranians and are just trying to mess with people. Others are suspected agents of the Iranian Government trying to get information about protesters.
Sadly the President of Iran isn’t that important as far as America and Israel are concerned. The position is a figurehead for the Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. But apparently thousands of Iranian Citizens have decided that there is a difference to them.
Iran has long been seeking a nuclear weapons arsenal and President Ahmadinejad has denied the Holocaust and vowed to wipe Israel off the map. However he does not have control of the military. The fact that Khamenei wants him in the President’s seat though does not bode well for Israel. I stated in this article that the United Nations should attack Iran now during their turmoil and end the nuclear threat to Israel.
Recently President Obama and his administration have fallen back to the old Democrat way of dealing with terrorist, kissing their butts! Obama went on an apologize for being American tour in several places around the world. In his own presidential election, Barack Hussein Obama flatly denied any Muslim roots, which he now embraces.
President Obama is trying to appease Muslim extremists by being hard on Israel and demanding a two state solution to the Palestine problem. This is in part due to his own anti Israel feelings and in part trying to appease potential terrorists.
However President Obama has not seen fit to end either of the wars we have against Muslim Extremists. Funny how those wars were illegal and immoral under George Bush but they are suddenly ok under President Obama.
Another reason President Obama will not deal harshly with Iran is his own distaste for freedom. Obama got his start as a community agitator helping ACORN rig elections in Chicago. The fact that Black Panthers from Obama’s election team were allowed to intimidate white voters in Philadelphia shows what Obama thinks about voter intimidation, he is all for it! Obama’s Injustice Department dropped the majority of the charges against the Black Panthers.
So far under President Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton American Foreign Policy with Iran has changed in one way. We are exporting more food and goods to them in a suck up attempt.
As tensions rise in Iran and Americans get more agitated about it, Obama may come out with some harder rhetoric. However don’t expect him to mean it as he will be pulling for more election fraud and suppression of rights for Iranian Citizens.
