Does this photo sicken anyone else? I’m waiting for the person that confronts me over my Iran fetish. I think too few realize the danger of the regime in Tehran. The fact that they are reaching out to dictators in our own hemisphere is frightening. Score this one for the need to put a Republican in the White House in 2008. I’m not too certain that W won’t do something before he leaves office. If he does – more power.
Ahmadinejad has pledged $1 billion to the leftist nutjob, Evo Morales, in Bolivia. Morales is a Hugo Chavez wanna-be. He is praying to become one of the unholy Iran ass-kissers in South America as is the Ecuadorean President Rafael Correa. Apparently, Congress believes that we can combat this by pouring more money into the suspect nations in Latin America.
The closer ties are viewed with alarm by the opposition in Venezuela and Bolivia, and by Washington. U.S. Rep. Connie Mack, a Florida Republican, said they remind him “of the relationship that Fidel Castro had with Russia.” He urged Washington to reach out more to a region analysts say it has largely ignored since 9-11.
Toward that aim, a bipartisan bill is being introduced in the U.S. Congress on Friday that would establish a 10-year, $2.5 billion program aimed at reducing poverty and expanding the middle class in Latin America. It would require recipient countries to contribute and encourage matching funds from businesses and non-governmental organizations.
The program would bring more stability in the long run and help the United States “re-establish leadership in the hemisphere” by increasing development assistance by more than a third, said bill co-sponsor Sen. Bob Menendez, a New Jersey Democrat.
I’m all about helping the people in Latin America. Strong democratic nations in our own hemisphere are a plus for Americans. But I have a better idea that will nip this bullshit in the bud. Get rid of the mullahs. Without Iran, we have little to worry about. Chavez is a pathetic little man. With some CIA intervention, he will soon be a sad afterthought. Then the silly little thugs like Morales and Correa will fade away.
Ever hear of the Monroe Doctrine folks? We don’t need this crap in our part of the world. When the Soviets started to arm Cuba with nukes, JFK threatened to push the nuclear button. Similarly, we need to take swift action against Iran soon. Iran has already gone too far. It isn’t enough that they are attempting to assert their dominance in the Middle East. They want Iranian hegemony in our Hemisphere. It’s time to take out the garbage.
I promise you this – hell is about to break loose. W. will not leave office without dealing with these nutjobs, and I will support him. And I pray that the next President of the United States will place Hugo in their sites as soon as we finish dealing with the Persian joke.
