Obama backed these monsters in 2009 when the Iranian people rose up and begged for America’s help in the only real freedom revolution in the Middle East. Obama ignored them and allowed millions of women, children and families to meet the bullets and the torture, unarmed and alone.
Obama had a historic opportunity to remove the head of the snake – the world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism. Iran is the enemy. Those military strikes Obama is authorizing should be targeted at Iran’s nuclear sites not pointless targets in Syria, a vassal state of Iran.
Instead, Obama put everything on the table and got kicked in the head. Late last year, Obama offered to reestablish full US diplomatic relations with Iran, including a reopening of embassies. And he stopped Israel from launching an attack on Iran’s nuclear facilities a year ago.
The enemies of freedom know Obama is weak and they are taunting him mercilessly, unafraid of what he’ll do. What a mess he has made.
Iran threatens brutal attacks on Americans, Obama family if US hits Syria: Daily Caller (thanks to Armaros)
As Congress debates whether to support President Obama’s call for a limited strike against Syria for the alleged use of chemical weapons, Iran is vowing to back Bashar al-Assad’s regime to the hilt and threatening to unleash terrorism should the U.S. strike.
Qassem Soleimani, the head of Iran’s Quds Forces, Wednesday told the Assembly of Experts — the body that chooses the supreme leader — that “[w]e will support Syria to the end.”
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.
Alireza Forghani, the former governor of southern Iran’s Kish Province, threw down the gauntlet last week. Forghani is an analyst and strategy specialist in the supreme leader’s camp and closely aligned with Mehdi Taeb, who heads the regime’s Ammar Strategic Base, a radical think thank, and thus speaks with the blessing of the Islamic regime.
“Hopefully Obama will be pigheaded enough to attack Syria, and then we will see the … loss of U.S. interests [through terrorist attacks],” he threatened. “In just 21 hours [after the attack on Syria], a family member of every U.S. minister [department secretary], U.S. ambassadors, U.S. military commanders around the world will be abducted. And then 18 hours later, videos of their amputation will be spread [around the world].”
A similar act was committed in a video of the torture of William Buckley, a CIA station chief who was abducted in Beirut in 1984 and later killed by Hezbollah on Iran’s order. That video was dropped off at the U.S. Embassy in Athens. Former CIA Director William Casey later described what he saw in the video: “They had done more than ruin his body. His eyes made it clear his mind had been played with. It was horrific, medieval and barbarous.”
