Iran and Election 2004

Fact: With the demise of the Saddam Hussein regime in Iraq, Iran now becomes the largest exporter of terrorism, not just to the Middle East but to the entire world.

Fact: Iran's vast terror network stretches into Syria, Lebanon the Palestinian Occupied Territories, and of course into Iraq.

Fact: Iran's state sponsored terrorist organization, Hezbollah (Party of God), is known or suspected to have been involved in suicide truck bombings of the U. S. Embassy (April 1983), the U. S. Marine barracks (October 1983, killing 220 Marine, 18 Navy and 3 Army personnel), and the U.S. Embassy annex (September 1984), all in Beirut. It also hijacked TWA Flight 847 in 1985, killing a Navy diver, Robert Stethem, who was on board, and its factions were responsible for the detention of most, if not all, U.S. and Western hostages held in Lebanon during the 1980s and early 1990s. Eighteen Americans were held hostage in Lebanon during the period, three of whom were killed. (

Fact: Iran's Hezbollah is the lone suspect in both the 1992 attack of Israel's embassy in Buenos Aires as well as for the July 18, 1994 bombing of the Argentine-Jewish Mutual Association (AMIA) building in Buenos Aires that left nearly 86 dead.

Fact: Iran is the only country in the world who has an expressed goal of destroying another country, Israel.

Fact: Iran is well on its way to developing Nuclear weapons, which, would not only put into reality their dream of destroying the tiny Jewish State with probably 3-4 warheads, but also the threat of passing nuclear materials which could be used against American interests abroad, especially in Iraq, but also to American citizens within the United States.

Fact: George W. Bush's administration has thus far let France, Britain and Russia attempt to negotiate some sort of agreement with Iran in an attempt to halt the country's development of WMD's. Thus far the Iranian government has thumbed its nose not only to these three global leaders, but also to the United National Atomic Energy Commission who has said mutiple times that Iran is in breech of the Non-Proliferations Treaty which they have signed in 1970.

Fact: At the recent meetings in Tehran between a Syrian delegation led by President Bashar Assad and the Iranians, including Supreme Leader Khamenei and top deputies including strongman Rafsanjani, the head of intelligence Yunesi, several leading officials of the Revolutionary Guards, and Foreign Minister Kharazi, the two sides agreed on five key points: A common strategy involving Iran, Syria, and Hezbollah to thwart American plans for the democratization of the Middle East; Coordination of joint operations against the Coalition and the interim government in Iraq; Coordination of political strategy to influence groups and countries that oppose the American presence in Iraq; Planning for revenge should Israel attack Iranian nuclear, chemical or missile sites, or Syria's chemical and missile sites, or Hezbollah bases; Full cooperation to prevent the reelection of President Bush, including all possible measures (such as sabotage of oil pipelines and terminals) to drive up the price of oil.

Fact: In June 2004 John Kerry proposed providing nuclear fuel to Iran in exchange for Iran's abandoning the fissile material production complex at Esfahan, Arak, Natanz and other locations. In an interview on 29 August 2004, reported in the Washington Post on 30 August, Democratic vice presidential nominee John Edwards proposed a "Grand Bargain" with Iran, under which the US would drop objections to the nuclear power reactor at Bushehr, in exchange for Iran abandoning the material production complex. According to Edwards, if Iran rejected this offer, it would confirm that it was building atomic bombs. Edwards also said that Kerry would ensure that European allies would join the US in imposing sanctions on Iran.

Whether you want to admit it or not, the United States is fighting a global war against terrorism. It is a war that is fought in many ways; economic, diplomatic, but primarily militarily. John Kerry's statements about Iran is a clear example that should he be president he would govern from a pre-September 11th mindset that global terrorism and the expansion of Islamo-fascists is not the greatest threat to democracy in the modern age, but merely a "nuisance" that can be dealt with on a law enforcement level. John Kerry does not understand the imminency of the threat of global terrorists and their state sponsors, and has proven it time after time in speechs emphasizing some kind of "global test" to defend Americans, as well as in speaking of non-existent European allies that would rush to our side should he be elected. The Kerry/Edward's scheme of adopting UN sanctions against Iran is further proof of their inability to grasp the reality of a world after 9-11. A decade of worthless UN sanctions and resolutions against Iraq proved totally inept at chipping away the power of Saddam Hussein, and a few Europeans as we are slowly beginning to see as the UN's Oil for Food program is slowing being exposed for nothing more than a bunch of corrupt kickbacks stretching all the way from Saddam Hussein, to promient aides of Jacques Chirac and even to the General Secretary of the United Nations, Koffi Annan, whose son has been mentioned by American investigations as a part of the kickback scandal.

Rest assured, you have a great choice for who should be our President in 2004. The difference could not be clearer. Either you want John Kerry defending your family through Geneva and Paris with UN Resolutions and global litmus tests, or you want George W. Bush to defend your family by using the doctrine of preemption to protect Americans before our country is again attacked. Islamo-fascist terrorists declared war on the United States on September 11, 2001 when more American civilians died on a single day than any other in US history. Will it really take another attack for you to realize the threat to Western Civilization?

This is just one reason why I voted for George W. Bush before I left LA for Jerusalem. It is also one of many scenarios in which John Kerry has proven that he lacks both the vision and the courage of his convictions to protect the American people. Disagree with me if you want, but those are the facts.
