Don’t Do It, Mr. President, Don’t Bomb Iran!

Before the U.S. House of Representatives on February 6, 2007; Ron Paul, a Republican member of Congress from Texas, had these words for the President of the United States of America regarding the possibility of striking Iran:

It’s a bad idea.
There’s no need for it.
There’s great danger in doing it.
America is against it, and Congress should be.
The United Nations is against it.
The Russians, the Chinese, the Indians, and the Pakistanis are against it.
The whole world is against it.
Our allies are against it.
Our enemies are against it.
The Arabs are against it.
The Europeans are against it.
The Muslims are against it.
We don’t need to do this.
The threat is overblown.
The plan is an hysterical reaction to a problem that does not yet exist.
Hysteria is never a good basis for foreign policy.
Don’t we ever learn?
Have we already forgotten Iraq?
The plan defies common sense.
If it’s carried out, the Middle East, and possibly the world, will explode.
Oil will soar to over $100 a barrel, and gasoline will be over $5 a gallon.
Despite what some think, it won’t serve the interests of Israel.

    Mr President, America should bomb Iran because everyone is blind. Blind toward the threat posed by islamism just as they were blind when faced by Adolf Hitler.

    Dear President, Bomb Iran, bomb their terrorist camps, bomb their bassij dormitories, bomb their nuclear facilities, their military bases, turn their oppressive machine into rubbles.

    Dear Mr President, the Arabs don’t like freedom, they are against whatever action you might undertake. The Asians aren’t antiamericain, just the Chinese and the North Koreans are. Two totalitariens regimes
    Mr President, the European are pacifists… they’d rather hide than fight for their freedom.

    America is quite the contrary and stands as a defender of freedom.

    Mr President, don’t trust them. Iranians are not Arabs, they don’t feel angry toward Israel or the West. Iranians are sick of their regime’s antiamericain and antizioniste propaganda.

    Unlike the Arabs they’re ready for a change of regime. Of course, those so called thirdworldist will always oppose democratization. They want a regime of their own, called Islamic Republic or populaist republic. Don’t trust them for the last century they only supported and engineered tyrannies.

    Mossadegh, Saddam, Nasser, Al Assad, Chavez, Peron, Mao, Khoutchev, etc.

    Sure America is no saint and America supported autocrats but they eventually evolved to become democrats or loose their power to the benefit of democracts : see Taiwan, Soutch Korea, Chile, Argentina, etc.

    So Mr President, it may not be uselful to bomb the mullahs but if it may help the iranians to get rid of them, don’T hesitate : DO IT!

  2. Sadly, the previous post’s a superb example of the failure of America’s public education system: grammar, syntax, and spelling are badly flawed, the logic hopelessly warped. Not a scintilla of knowledge of other cultures or peoples. Not an gram of compassion. Hate, though–lots of hate.

    After you read enough of this dreck, you’re almost ready to embrace the notion that the flood of it springs from some dark, powerful conspiracy to create an Orwellian dystopia in which Ignorance Is Strength. (I commend a reading of Orwell’s “1984” to you, MMM, if you haven’t yet read it.)

    And as the Chief of Staff of the Indian Army remarked following Desert Storm, the lesson of Desert Storm is don’t take on the Americans unless you’ve got nukes. Lesson learned.

  3. @Elephantman: It’s really a shame to see that there are people who think like you in this world, but I guess that’s why the world is in such a bad state after all. How could it not be?
    I could go through your comment, rip it apart, and show how ignorant and wrong every point you mentioned is, but then again, it’s not really worth it, because it’s so very obvious, in fact you even contradict yourself clearly in it.
    All I can say is open your eyes, learn your facts, learn some respect for other people and cultures, and then come back. Maybe then we’ll be able to have a civilized conversation together.

    @Jimbo: George Orwell’s 1984 is one of my favourite books, I really enjoyed reading it, and yes I fear that we’re slowly moving towards a world like that.
