Samantha Power, the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, hoped that a team of UN investigators — many of whom, presumably, have a longstanding relationship with Iranian leaders -- could write a report that would convince Iran to abandon its ally at the behest of the United States.
We are a nation run by idiots. They honestly believe they can convince the Iranians to abandon Syria for them. They cannot even muster support from their fellow countrymen on much smaller matters and they're going to convince the Iranians to support military action against their own ally in their own backyard?
However, there's this:
And in an unprecedented statement, a former Iranian official has warned of mass abductions and brutal killings of American citizens around the world and the rape and killing of one of Obama’s daughters should the United States attack Syria.
As our reader well knows, I am no fan of Obama or his administration or policies or pretty much anything else he's done.
Threatening to rape and murder the man's daughter? It is motherfucking on. Now. This goddamn minute. I want the President to use every tool in the toolbox to go after this motherfucker personally and make an example out of him.
It's not entirely clear from the article but it appears this piece of shit is named Alireza Forghani. If so, you've just put your name in the black book.
And yes, I'd call in a marker from the Israelis for this one. They have been doing very good work in wiping out the Iranian nuclear team and I have little doubt they could ice this guy in very short order.Posted by Duffy at September 9, 2013 03:06 PM | TrackBack
