Wikileaks Wakes World To Real Threats

Published by at 8:32 am under All General Discussions

Wikileaks is a liberal nutcase gone mad. The folks behind it believe by exposing classified material the US is going to veer dramatically leftward politically. It is another clear example of left wing incompetence. All that is happening from Wikileaks is:

  • Confirmation that our enemies are real and very dangerous (here and here)
  • Confirmation the Obama administration is incompetent (here).

What we have learned is Iran is so dangerous the Saudis are supportive of a preventative strike and Europe understand it is more at risk than the US. While the Wikileaks head thinks he may be stopping an attack on Iran, the opposite is probably more likely. Now that the full scope of Iran’s threat can be seen (along wiht North Korea’s current and mindless provocative military actions) I can envision a gelling of world opinion behind unified action.

Nuclear weapons are frightening devices in the hands of peace loving first world countries. But in the hands of suicidal, religious fanatics they represent death and carnage on a scale the world has never before seen except in extinction level events. Iran itself is just not worth the risk.

Watch the Wikileaks backfire – big time.

Update: I think the revelation about Iran’s missile capabilities is most disturbing:

Iran obtained 19 of the missiles from North Korea, according to a cable dated Feb. 24 of this year. The cable is a detailed, highly classified account of a meeting between top Russian officials and an American delegation led by Vann H. Van Diepen, an official with the State Department’s nonproliferation division who, as a national intelligence officer several years ago, played a crucial role in the 2007 assessment of Iran’s nuclear capacity.

The missiles could for the first time give Iran the capacity to strike at capitals in Western Europe or easily reach Moscow, and American officials warned that their advanced propulsion could speed Iran’s development of intercontinental ballistic missiles.

Iran has no civilian need for these kinds of weapons. These are not defensive (clearly, they have been able to defend themselves so far without them). And the US can dwarf this fire power with a single submarine (let alone a naval task force). Forget about what we can do with all our assets.

So this weapon is for the infidels. What if Iran’s lunatic leaders believe their immortal salvation will come through statewide suicide? What if their path to God is through annihilation of the non believers?

Bush was right – we cannot allow Iran to become a nuclear power. The cost would be too high.

    My aunt flew in from CA to spend Thanksgiving with us. She is a very proud liberal. She thinks highly of the Democratic party and thought that they could do nothing wrong. She is proud of the fact that the Democratic Party voted to give women the right to vote. She is proud of the fact that LBJ and his Democrats passed the 1964 Civil Rights Act. She thinks Obama is brilliant. She hates Sarah Palin. She never heard the Democrats criticize Bush.

    Dad, my brother, and I did some correcting but quickly gave up. She had trouble believing that LBJ could not pass the 1964 Civil Rights Act without the Republican vote.

    If she is this blind, it’s no wonder the majority of the liberals are so blind to the truth.

    ~OR~

    According to an email to NRO, a family with young kids got delayed to the Christmas Tree Lighting in Oregon and was grateful that they missed the event. However, he spoke to a friend that was actually there. His friend treated the bomb with excuses…so what? It was a fake bomb. Nothing happened. Nothing to worry about. blah blah blah.

    So a real bomb has to blow up in order to force these liberals to accept the threats????

    Bush is right but perhaps the only way to force these liberals to face it is to allow the costs to be too high….

    I don’t want the costs to be too hight…

    Question: What can we do working within the confines of the Constitution to stop them?
