Rose-Colored Glasses Make Everything…More Rosey

Rose-colored Glasses

 

Yesterday, Iran detains 2 U.S. naval vessels…


And 10 of our brave military men and wome (from the world’s superpower) are literally on their knees held captive and broadcast for all the world to see.


Yet the truly unbeleivable response is “We don’t see this as hostile intent.”

 

However, Iran’s most unfriendly overtures to the U.S. also include:


Taking 60+ Americans taken hostage for 444 long days. 


Bombing Marine barracks, through Hezbollah proxy, killing 241 American servicemen and women in Beirut


Shooting live missiles within just 1,500 yards of  our aircraft carriers


– Blowing up a replica of a U.S. warship


– Testing multiple ballistic missiles capable of carrying nukes


– Continuing to hold 4 Americans hostage


– Threatening genocide against the Holy Land


Regularly chanting “Death to America” and burning our flag


What do we do?


A deal to release $100+ billion dollar to the world’s #1 sponsor of terrorism and remove sanctions.


Funny thing is we’ve seen this story before…


ISIS attacking and threatening American cities with a new 9/11 attack and seeking to build a dangerous Caliphate


North Korea testing an H-bomb and ballistic missiles with nukes to hit the U.S.  


Russia annexing Crimea and settling into Syria to bolster Assad

 

Syria continuing to use chemical weapons, laying seige and starving tens of thousands of their own people, and killing, wounding, and displacing millions to be absorbed by the West


But we open our hearts and borders and seek to take in more refugees with a questionabe vetting process, not even use the term “radical Islamist,” and to whiteout any red lines that we’ve drawn to protect our national security. 


Surely, our sworn enemies of the Axis of Evil don’t want to hurt us…perhaps, kill and destroy are more accurate terms. 😉

The World’s Most Dangerous Game Of Chicken

Bret Stephens of the Wall Street Journal does a nice job explaining in simple terms why Iran can’t be allowed to get the bomb–not now and not in 10-15 years. 


Iran is not playing by the same rules as the West!


And like when playing chicken, the one who is the chicken and tries to simply avoid confrontation through appeasement and concessions–they end up driving off the road and are the losers.


And one who is the hawk–willing to not only keep on pursuing their goals, but also to actually either use it or to stop it’s use by any and all means–chances to be the winner. 


However, the problem with nukes is that when someone is crazy enough to actually use them, then millions of decent, peaceful-loving people are the real losers. 


And like with Hitler (may his name be cursed) who made known in “Mein Kampf” his crazed ambitions for world domination and blatantly murdered millions…


Iran, the world’s leading state-sponsor of terrorism and human rights offender today, continues to boldly chant “Death to America” and threatens to “annihilate” the State of Israel, while pursuing nukes, ballistic missiles, and a Shiite Caliphate. 


This is perhaps the world’s most dangerous “game” of chicken, and the cost of being wrong, never higher.
