Reader comment on item: White House Nonchalance toward the Middle East

Submitted by J.S. (Canada), Mar 23, 2006 at 17:13

A significant article on U.S. foreign policy in the Middle East and Iran was recently published in the National Post. According to the author a show-down will shortly be in order (and this will involve Iran's intentions vis-a-vis Iraq -- Iran wishes to control the Shiite shrines located in Iraq -- allow "pilgrims" from Iran into Iraq, etc). Apparently, Iran wishes to become a super-power in the Middle East -- (effectively control an area running from Iraq to the Levant -- including Lebanon through Hezbollah -- bring in Khomeinism throughout the Middle East --- not "democracy") and Iran will obtain this power should the United States leave Iraq. To prevent Iran from obtaining such power, the U.S. MUST stay the course (I had been thinking about a quick U.S. pull-out). Reading this article changed my mind...

(Oh, and I really, really hate those Christian "peace-keepers" -- I think another indication of being a psychopath is to be oblivious/deaf/dumb and blind to hypocrisy. Here these bums were rescued by a military operation -- and yet, they're out there on Canadian media spitting at the United States -- and applauding themselves for being such mighty "pacifists" -- yuck. They stink. The coalition forces shouldn't have wasted their time rescuing these low-lifes...

There's also hints that a bride to get the bums released was made -- ranson paid to the kidnappers, so the money can be spent murdering more U.S. troops!! and that's what these idiots call Peacemaking?? -- and O surprise! -- the kidnappers left the house prior to the forces reaching it -- that tells everyone that the kidnappers were given the loot (probably millions) and informed prior to the bust...(so the kidnappers could make their get-away.) What comes to mind is what is done in the Arctic -- you get these imbeciles who figure they're "survivalists" -- and they go up there (knowing zilch about the Arctic or what it takes to survive) then, when they get stranded on some ice floe, they scream for rescue. The Canadian government in the past would routinely rescue the idiots...but things finally got so bad, that now if any city-slicker, (read "idiot"), goes out for an Arctic "adventure" he or she has to put up lots and lots of cash first. I think the same principle should be put in place with any "adventurers" to Iraq -- make them fork over a couple of million bucks prior to their setting foot in Iraq. (it would keep out the sight-seers and other idiotic "do-gooders.")
