Iran Ransom

Posted by Troy on 3rd August 2016 in Current Events, Political

When we were negotiating the Iran Nuclear Deal, Obama delivered 400 million dollars.  His cover story was that the 400 million was money the sheik paid to America in exchange for arms in the 1970s before the Iranian Revolution and Iran taking our embassy hostage.  We feared that the international court would find against us and charge u s ten billion dollars, so we decided to settle for 1.7 billion.  This 400 million was merely the down payment.

First, this was clearly a ransom.  We pay the money right before the prisoners were released?  Even if it wasn’t a ransom, the timing, de facto, made it a ransom in the eyes of Iran.  If it’s viewed as a ransom in the criminal’s eyes, it’s a ransom.  It’s a ransom.  It’s that simple.  So, by paying this amount, we have set a precedence that the US gives money for US hostages.  As such, do not travel abroad.

Second, this is exactly my point about international organizations.  What the hell do we care what an international court says?  “You need to pay a terrorist nation 10 billion dollars.”  The only acceptable answer is: “____ you.  We are NOT paying a country that sponsors terrorism any money, especially considering they took our people hostage.  If you don’t like that, maybe the UN’s army should try to come take it… oh wait… WE ARE the UN army.  Ha.  Go ____ yourself.”

Third, why does no one care?  Trump makes an off-comment about “a gold star mother,” and the news media goes nuts.  Trump’s comments don’t make any difference about anything really important.  Hillary “negotiated” the Iran deal.  In effect, she set a dangerous precedence that puts additional American lives at stake, fast tracks Iran’s nuclear capability, and gives the largest state sponsor of terror huge sums of money.  Hell, even Josh Earnest couldn’t deny that the money might be used to sponsor terror.  Just totally wrote it off, it it didn’t matter.

Iran Deal

Posted by Troy on 21st July 2015 in Current Events, Political

Are we crazy?

I think we are crazy.  Our Founding Fathers told us not to get involved with other countries’ problems.  This changed with Woodrow Wilson, and was succeeded by Theodore Roosevelt.  What followed what a series of escalating foreign involvement that we never should have gotten involved in. War World II was the last war we really had any business fighting.  Political involvement has lead to the Korean War, the Vietnam War, our meddling in Iran in 1953, our setting up Sadam in Iraq, our toppling Sadam in Iraq, the evolution of ISIS, the toppling of various dictators and supplanting of Muslim extremists in several countries, and etc etc etc.  Query: when has our meddling ever ended in OUR favor?

For the record, I am against the UN.  What sense does it make to be a part of a group that allows enemy countries to have a say?  Then for us to fund said group?  And to give up control of our military to said group?  And to defer the Constitution to the will of said group?  I would vote for ANYONE that said “**** the UN.  We quit.”

I believe we have been sold this deal because Russia and China have said, “Sign up, or else.”  China’s economy is is the toilet right now.  Cheap oil might bring them around.  Russia’s economy is in the toilet right now; they want to sell arms to the Iranians.  Britain and France also would benefit from cheaper oil.  In all cases, none of of these countries are dealing with a country that espouses “Death to” their country.

Iran is like Russia or China.  They will break any deal.  They will agree to whatever terms that benefits them, and then they will ignore the treaty as soon as it suits them.  We gain NOTHING in this deal.  There is no benefit for America.  There is benefit to Iran and to other countries that want more oil.  That’s it.  And that’s all well and good, if we felt like Iran can be trusted, but right now, Iran is saying that they are not going to honor the treaty with America.  Bleep, so why sign?  Are we crazy?  We must be.

The funnest part is that after 15 years, Iran has the green light, under this treaty, to make nuclear weapons.  However, Iran has told us that “We’re not gonna do that.”  Oh, well, at least we have that.  It’s not even in writing or anything, but their assurance means the world to us.

This thing is going to end badly.  Look for Iran to have nuclear weapons in 15 years (maybe sooner since I’m sure that they will not abide by the treaty anyway).  The Saudis will also have nukes.  They will have to.  It’s just like India and Pakistan.  When you’re mortal enemy has nukes, you gotta have nukes too.  Heaven forbid that ISIS manages to take over these places.  Iran is also a large sponsor of terror.  Letting them make nuclear material just begs for dirty bombs too.

I don’t know what the answer is.  We messed up as soon as we decided to the policemen of the world.  It’s too vast a job.  All we’ve done is expended resources needlessly and generate hate for our own country.  We should have just minded our own business and maintained our strength and said, “If you wanna blow yourselves up, fine, but don’t come over here.  We will kick your @$$.”

That’s why I’m voting for Rand Paul in the primary.  Isolationism rules.

Long Live the Constitution!

National Defense Authorization Act

Posted by Troy on 18th January 2012 in Current Events, Political

Today they released a report saying that domestic terrorists tend to blame the government or speak out about the government and use the Internet to connect with like minded people.  Even though the NDAA allows people to be arrested by the military and stripped of their constitutional rights (Amendments 5 to 8), there’s no cause for concern.  Of course, this could be used to describe the Tea Party, Anonymous, and countless other groups as terrorists.  The politicians admit this, but say that they would never abuse this power.  My favorite part of the debate was Mitt Romney being booed when he said he would have signed the NDAA.  Here’s the thing, even if I trusted Obama with all my heart (sorry, I couldn’t stop laughing…I’m back now), there’s no way I would give FUTURE PRESIDENTS WHO I DO NOT KNOW this power.  Someone is going to abuse it.

Ron Paul has put a bill up to repeal the most egregious part of the NDAA.  And yet people call Ron Paul dangerous.  Which is more dangerous to you?  Iran with a nuclear weapon, or your government stripping your rights?  Which of these two is actually more likely?  Iran uses a nuclear weapon, or your government crushing all of our liberties?

Obama Shares Secrets with the Russians

Obama is going to share our missile secrets for our counter nuclear missiles with Russia.  This is in attempts to get some sort of START treaty going with them.  On what planet is this not considered treason of the highest sort.  This is just unreal.  This is just irresponsible.  This President continues to undermine our security, destroy our economy, and divide us!

Japan Update

Posted by Troy on 17th March 2011 in Current Events

I’m sad to say that we have been mislead.  It would appear that Japan doesn’t have everything under control.  However, I would advise that we take stock of their actual needs before applying resources.  I am shocked at the number of safety violations of Japan’s nuclear plants.  I would tell people not to judge the nuclear power option by this case.  They have been almost negligent.  What shocks me is that I would think that, of all countries, Japan would be particularly sensitive to the dangers of radiation.  As one of our best allies (economically and otherwise), we should spare no option at trying to help them recover from this blow.
