I can certainly tell when I strike a nerve. My previous article about the President of Iran questioning the severity of the holocaust put everyone in a tizzy, and I was apparently fortunate enough to only have 2 clarifications being tacked on to my original post (hooray for me).
Let me make one thing clear. Iran’s president is a dumbass and I do not deny it. I also do not wake up every morning and verify my worldly views against his. However, with his claim on this particularly topic I wholeheartedly agree. I also applaud him for taking a stand in making such a seemingly bold claim.
Of course, political pressure came in and he caved in. His interior minister (not to be confused with the interior decorator, aka the US equivalent of Laura Bush) stated that the president was. Ummmm…. Bullshit. He backed down and ran away.
Now many reading this blog are probably jumping up and down screaming, “YOU SEE YOU SEE, he was wrong and now he knows what an idiot he was!” While that certainly is an option, other issues make me believe that he backtracked simply as an attempt to avoid an inevitable war with the US/Israel.
After all, Israel is already getting prepared for war, citing the need to strike before Iran goes nuclear. This conveniently requires them to forget that they themselves have a very large and developed nuclear program, as exposed by the 17 year political prisoner . The real irony of this story kicks in when realizing that Israel used the holocaust as one of their reasons for protecting themselves with nuclear arms in the first place! You are wrong Iran, and if you keep talking, we’ll kick your ass!
But “he said, she said” aside, a war with Iran could potentially turn out to be quite grim, particularly if Russia decides to step in.
And for those of you who believe that truth speaks for itself, don’t worry. Shortly after, a bunch of people ambushed him for a
polite debate (alleged) assassination attempt. Now if there was an attempt on our President for every lie HE said, the number of assassins being flown in would probably overload the DC subways (note: I do not condone such an activity. The subways are too crowded there as it is).
Update by Stephen VanDyke:
Agreeing with Iran’s president on the proportion of killing debate is just a bad idea. Hell, this is would be like using a Hitler speech on train schedule efficiency to make an argument on how to better manage the NYC subway system. You may be right on the facts, but I’d end up looking like a nutter for even bringing that up because it’s just not credible.
Iran’s president has ZERO credibility in anything he says about Jews or Israel or the Holocaust because… dun dun dun… he admits to hating them. His remarks on some Holocaust accounting issues that may have a nugget of truth to them is simply overshadowed by the fact that he’s a bigot.
