As we peer out the kaleidoscope of the Looking Glass and consider what 100,000 or more Syrians will do to the United States, lets review how we got here. It was all spelled out in earlier statements of Biden and Obama of the intention, especially during the first primary, of Iran becoming a “stabilizing force.” And good old Joe did just that.This has been the plan from the beginning. Iraq to become a failure. Check. Turn to Iran to become a stabilizing force. Check. Below the clip are the notes. Just for a refresher.And we are surprised at where we are?
During the Presidential debate on Monday, Barack Obama resorted to his usual style of rhetoric to evade scrutiny of his disastrous policies on Iran and Syria. However, he can’t hide the fact, that from day one, ever since he rose to national prominence, he has sought to befriend the Syrian and Iranian regimes, despite their atrocious and despicable nature.
The President’s voice was nowhere to be heard, in 2009, during the post-election demonstrations in Iran, much to the chagrin of the Iranian protesters. And, despite his claims to the contrary, Obama sent two letters to the Supreme leader of Iran, in which he made some shocking concessions and also offered to conduct negotiations with the despotic regime.
In 2010, Obama returned the U.S. ambassador to Syria; the ambassador had been recalled by President Bush after the assassination of Lebanese Prime Minister Rafic Harri.
Moreover, in July of 2009, the Obama administration announced a decision to ease sanctions on Syria.
And who can forget Obama’s incredibly ridiculous statement, during the Democratic Presidential debate, in 2007, when he was asked if he’d be willing to negotiate with the leaders of Iran, Syria etc.
Obama replied: “I think that it is a disgrace that we have not spoken to them.We’ve been talking about Iraq — one of the first things that I would do in terms of moving a diplomatic effort in the region forward is to send a signal that we need to talk to Iran and Syria because they’re going to have responsibilities if Iraq collapses. They have been acting irresponsibly up until this point. But if we tell them that we are not going to be a permanent occupying force, we are in a position to say that they are going to have to carry some weight, in terms of stabilizing the region.”
The Iranian and Syrian regimes “are going to have to carry some weight, in terms of stabilizing” Iraq and the region??? Are you kidding me?
And, let’s not forget some of Joe Biden’s preposterous statements on Iran.
In October 2001, shortly after the 9/11 attacks, Biden was quoted as telling committee staffers, during a meeting, “Seems to me this would be a good time to send, no strings attached, a check for $200 million to Iran.”
[Biden] looks around the table with raised eyebrows, a How do ya like that? look on his face.
The staffers sit in stunned silence. Finally somebody ventures a response: “I think they’d send it back.” Then another aide speaks up delicately: “The thing I would worry about is that it would almost look like a publicity stunt.”
World Net Daily reported in 2005:
Last year, Biden held a high-level, 90-minute meeting with Iranian Foreign Minister Kamal Kharrazi, which took place in a lounge in full view of reporters during the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.
The U.S. has had no official relations with Iran since the 1979 Islamic Revolution…
Biden reportedly told Kharrazi he is… urging his own government to rethink its positions [towards Iran].
Newsmax reported in 2008:
Sen. Barack Obama and his newly-picked running mate, Sen. Joe Biden of Delaware, may have sparred during the primaries. But on one issue they are firmly united: the need to forge closer ties to the government of Iran.
Kaveh Mohseni, a spokesman for the Student Movement Coordination Committee for Democracy in Iran, calls Biden “a great friend of the mullahs.”
He notes that Biden’s election campaigns “have been financed by Islamic charities of the Iranian regime based in California and by the Silicon Iran network,” a loosely-knit group of wealthy Iranian-American businessmen and women seeking to end the U.S. trade embargo on Iran.
“In exchange, the senator does his best to aid the mullahs,” Mohseni argues.
Biden’s ties to pro-Tehran lobbying groups are no secret. But so far, the elite media has avoided even mentioning the subject….
At a March 2002 conference in Washington, D.C., sponsored by the American-Iranian Council (AIC), Biden made the case for closer U.S. ties to the government of Iran. “I believe than an improved relationship with Iran is in the naked self-interest of the United States of America,” Biden said…
[Biden’s] decision to address the American-Iranian Council and other pro-Tehran groups has angered many Iranian-Americans.
“Biden has been too cozy with the supporters of the Iranian regime, which is anti-American, anti-Iranian, and has a horrendous human rights record,” said Sardar Haddad, an Iranian pro-democracy activist based in Texas.
The American-Iranian Council was founded by Hoosang Amirahmadi, a Rutgers University professor of urban studies who tried to run for president of the Islamic Republic in 2005.
Funded in part by oil giant CONOCO, which hoped to secure lucrative oil contracts, AIC has lobbied consistently to get U.S. trade sanctions on Iran eliminated…
