IRAN MOVES TOWARD WAR, BUT MCDERMOTT BLAMES AMERICA
Iran is on a war drive. The brutal Iranian dictatorship is the world’s top state sponsor of terrorism, backing Hezbollah, Hamas, and other terrorist groups. Iran thumbs its nose at the world and proceeds with its nuclear weapons program. The Islamic extremist mullahs brutally oppress women, students, and minorities; they seek to stifle dissent, crush opposition, and prevent democracy for the Iranian people. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad threatens to wipe Israel off the map, and the Iranian government interferes in Iraq, aiding Islamic extremists who aim to kill our troops.
Jim McDermott, the far left Democrat congressman from Seattle, has earned the reputation of advocating soft treatment of dictators such as Saddam Hussein and Fidel Castro. On October 2, 2007 McDermott took the floor in the House to speak on Iran. Not surprisingly, McDermott turned reality on its head – when he looks at the war-like policies of Iran, (as always) he blames America!
“Out of a sense of duty and a growing fear I stand to say that I hear the drumbeats of war,” McDermott told the House. “This time,” he said, “Iran is in their crosshairs,” referring to the Bush Administration. Calling upon Congress “to act before the President orders a military strike,” McDermott warns that if we end up in a war with Iran “we will have no one to blame except ourselves.” The far left Congressman says the U.S. government is “again using friendly fire through right-wing media … while they lay the groundwork and shop for a provocation to launch a military strike.” Source for McDermott quotes: http://www.buzzflash.com/articles/alerts/295
Only someone like Jim McDermott would see the pro-terrorist Iranian regime as the victim of America. I’m sick and tired of McDermott, whose shares the “blame America” approach of the far left, such as MoveOn.org.
McDermott, who is friendly to Fidel Castro and who was friendly to Saddam Hussein, is consistent and true to form. But he is a disgrace to this region and to the city of Seattle.
As I stated during my 2006 campaign against McDermott:
“There is much talk about whether ‘we’ are right to put the ‘military option’ on the table, but the truth is the responsibility lies with the Iranian mullahs. It is they who have introduced the ‘destroy Israel’ and the ‘uranium enrichment’ options. Only the mullahs can take those options away, but at this point they seem hellbent on their drive to war and destruction. Unacceptable? Precisely!” (Weekly Standard, 5/8/06)
I support our troops, and I’m for a victory strategy in the war against terrorism. That includes blocking the militaristic aims of the Islamic dictatorship, preventing the ayatollahs from obtaining nuclear weapons, aiding pro-democratic forces in Iran, and preparing for a possible defensive military response to Iran’s interference in Iraq.
