This statement sounds outrageous, over 50 years after the Holocaust, it should be, but it's not.
Millions of Jews Will Die Within the Decade.
Iran is developing nuclear weapons. Iran's leader believes that he is sent by Allah to wipe out Israel and bring in the reign of the Shiite Messiah. When Iran has nuclear weapons it will use them. There is no credible argument that it will not. The only question is whether Iran will launch directly use one of its affiliated terrorist groups such as Hamas, Islamic Jihad or Hizbullah to carry out the attacks.
Hizbullah is the most likely scenario. The recent Lebanese war was a testing ground for what would happen if Hezbollah were to stage attacks on Israeli towns and cities using Lebanon as a base. Olmert's government demonstrated Israel's futile response.
Hizbullah has already received advanced rockets and missiles from Iran and in the previous war, Iranian personnel conducted much of the campaign using the Iranian embassy as a command and control center. A nuclear attack would begin with Iran transporting nuclear devices to Lebanon's Shiite Hizbullah controlled territories and then launching them at Israeli cities.
Iran would have plausible deniability. Lebanon would be immune from retaliation over the actions of Hizbullah, as the last war demonstrated. Not that anyone would bother to punish genocide directed against Jews. As WW2 demonstrated no one will go to war over dead Jews or even throw the dying ones a lifeline.
If Israel is to survive the decade, if the millions of Jews in the Jewish state are to survive, the actions taken now will make the difference. Israel will have to make serious changes in leadership. An air raid will no longer be enough to stop Iran's nuclear projects, the way it put a temporary end to Saddam's ambitions. If things get any further along it may take drastic action and preemptive attack with weapons of mass destruction.
America will need leaders prepared to stop Iran because if the world demonstrates it will do nothing when Iran destroys Israel, Iran's little Hitler will react just the way the original Hitler did when the world did nothing after the German invasion of Czechoslovakia, and begin a broader campaign of invasion and mass murder.
The Bush Administration under Condoleeza Rice has demonstrated growing weakness on Iran, but it's nothing compared to how much of a pushover Democratic administrations have been and will be.
A vote for the Democrats, at the Congressional or Presidential level, means signing the death warrant for millions of Jews. And millions of Persians and Arabs too. And there's no telling where Iran's weapons will strike next.
A nuclear blast detonated in New York City, a death toll in the millions, is impossible for the average person to imagine. Imagine 9/11 then. See the remains of the burning towers and the lines of people streaming away across the bridge and anywhere but from Ground Zero.
See that scene again but every building in Manhattan and most of Brooklyn and parts of Queens is burning. The city is burning and Central Park is a charnel heap. There is no Upper West Side or East Village anymore. There is no Williamsburg or Park Slope. There are just miles of burning rubble and the dead are beyond counting. The living who stagger out of the blast zone have no eyes to see with.
In that terrible silence; gay marriage, abortion, welfare, affirmative action, the NEA, the NRA, corporate monopolies, social security; all these things you think the election is about will be revealed as the mad frivolities of a society drunk on its ignorance of the world as it is. None of these things matter. Philosophical differences that are the indulged luxuries of people living in a bubble away from reality.
It isn't too late but it will be. Soon. And to those liberals who aren't put out in the least by all this, consider one final thing. Remember the surge of patriotism after 9/11, remember how much of a blank check the Republicans got. Then imagine the impact a nuclear blast within an American city will have. After 9/11 the Democrats spent Bush's term taking an unprecedented beating in every branch of government. After a nuclear blast on American soil, the Democratic party would go the way of the Know-Nothing and Reform parties and so would any liberal agenda.
The time is now. We're approaching the finish line one way or another. Ahmadinejad will not be dissuaded by any of the pragmatic considerations of Soviet leaders. He is on a mission from god. Nothing will stop him except a miracle or armed force. If neither does, millions of Jews will die within the decade.
And when that happens no one will be able to say as they did after the Holocaust that they did not know, that they did not see it coming. We knew. We saw. And we went on playing our frivolous games while the clock counted down until it was too late.
