Big Red Car here. Bright, sunny and crisp today. This is what we call winter in the ATX. We like winter — all three days of it. 70F on Sunday.
So, the administration has begun to “leak” out that the Iran deal is going to end up with Iran getting an invite to the nuclear bomb club. Oh boy!
The problem is this — we promised the Israelis, the world, the American people this would NOT happen.
promised this guy
that a nuclear armed Iran was NOT going to happen.
Now this guy
is coming to America to plead his case. The first guy, President Obama, doesn’t want to meet with the second guy, Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu, when he is in the US. A breach of protocol kind of thing.
When dealing with nuclear weapons in the hands of nations which have pledged to wipe your nation from the face of the earth — well, PROTOCOL is very important. OK to arm the Devil with nuclear weapons but not OK to use the wrong fork with shellfish; or, God forbid, drink white wine with meat.
Let me remind you that within the DNA of Israel is the memory of a madman who killed 6,000,000 of them only for worshiping their God in their own way. For being Jews. Israel is understandably sensitive about arming madmen who have vowed to wipe them from the face of the earth. It has happened before. It is happening again. It was our word that stood between Israel and madness.
I am embarrassed for our Nation. We have lied to ourselves, the world and our only ally in the Middle East. We have thrown the future of Israel on to the table as if it were a pile of red chips and we have let the Iranians deal from the bottom of the deck. This is not going to end well for anyone.
We are a better nation than that. Our word should be and has historically been GOOD! We need to make it so.
