Obama: Don't let us down
The Ayatollah Got the Memo

“For many years, Iran has defined itself in part by its opposition to my country, and there is in fact a tumultuous history between us. In the middle of the Cold War, the United States played a role in the overthrow of a democratically elected Iranian government. “
Of all the opprobrious anti- American twaddle spewed by Barack Obama in his much exalted Cairo speech, this statement may be one of the most malignant. Obama essentially apologized for what was a colossal CIA success: the removal of Mohammad Mossadegh from power in Iran. The mission, known as Operation Ajax was supported by President Dwight Eisenhower and Winston Churchill. Mossadegh was a crackpot, which is why the left finds him so compelling. Churchill described Mossadegh as “an elderly lunatic bent on wrecking his country and handing it over to the Communists.”
Mossadegh’s platform was his fierce opposition to British influence, an ideology adopted by Barack Obama. Paving the way for future deranged dictators, Mossadegh eventually fired the parliament, called for a special election and declared himself the winner of 99.9% of the vote.
Mossadegh nationalized the oil wells. That was ruinous enough, but batty Mohammad ostensibly didn’t realize that once the Brits pulled out of Iran, there was nobody who actually knew how to run them. Thus, he drove his people into abject destitution. The West had well founded jitters about Iran’s economic plight making the country easy prey for the Soviet Union.
After the CIA orchestrated coup, the former Shah, Mohammad Reza Pahlavi, returned from exile and modernized the country, including granting women the right to vote, raising the hackles of Muslim extremists. The gains made for women were systematically reversed when Khomeini seized power.
The daffy left always gets hysterical about minor despots and glorifies the really barbaric ones.
The Shah was a friend of the United States. Indeed, he was a flawed leader, prone to despotism but a real pussycat compared to the current Iranian thugocracy. Until former president Jimmy Carter took office, the United States and Iran maintained a stable relationship. Carter couldn’t abandon the Shah fast enough. The daffy left always gets hysterical about minor despots and glorifies the really barbaric ones. Fidel Castro is a demigod to a libtard. Carter’s refusal to support the Shah and his delusions about the Ayatollah Khomeini enabled the savage fanatical regime to grab control of Iran. Khomeini’s government slaughtered more citizens in its first few weeks than the Shah’s regime killed during its entire thirty- eight year reign. The incendiary ayatollah’s take over was the beginning of the worldwide eruption of Islamic terrorism.
As the Obama White House took credit for generating a “vigorous debate and enthusiasm” among the Iranian people regarding their elections, Ahmadinejad was proclaiming victory over his challenger without bothering to count the votes. A Chicago pol, Obama saw nothing out of the ordinary when it was announced that adjunct Columbia professor, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, had won roughly 123% of the vote in the free, open and fair election.
Ahmedinejad’s agenda is to bring about a grand conflagration to summon the appearance of the 12th Imam. To expedite Mahmoud’s aspirations, Obama has publicly assured Iran that the United States has not the slightest inclination to slow down the regime’s race to acquire nuclear weapons.
Iranian voters have taken to the streets to protest the outcome of their election, a risky enterprise in a nation led by maniacs who gleefully torture and execute dissidents. Contrast this to the United States, which provides beachfront property in Bermuda and SBA loans to entrepreneurial enemy combatants seeking to become restaurateurs.
Iranians, many of them young students, are engaged in an impassioned affray with the brutal regime, some being gunned down by pro- government thugs. The world is watching to see how the United States responds. The Obamanutz media pundits are downplaying the violence as the perpetually obtuse Rachel Maddow laughingly compares the bloodshed in Tehran to America’s 2000 election conflict.
Our president, who has no qualms about telling Prime Minister Netanyahu how to run his country, is insisting that it would be indecorous for a United States president to “meddle”. If liberals had any sense of irony, they would be captivated by the timing of Obama’s non-meddling posture as it coincides with former president Carter’s meddling in the Gaza. The pro- terrorist peanut farmer is meeting with Hamas and beseeching the Obama administration to take the savage beasts off of the state sponsors of terrorism list. Carter’s position was given further credibility when his peacenik cohorts planted roadside bombs intended to exterminate their ardent abettor.
It’s understandable that Barack Obama is unmoved by the overt appropriation of an election. Nor would a different candidate make substantial changes in the Iranian government. However, the leader of the free world is obliged to reject the outcome of such a manifestly spurious election.
The late Shah’s son has called on Obama to take a leadership position:
“I would like to take this opportunity and tell the President this is a crucial moment - on behalf of my compatriots and millions who have been turning to the outside world, particularly to this President - to say: don’t let us down.
