US Should Prepare for War with Iran

Ahmadinejad Should give Us All Nightmares!

We came across this article on the “Daily Mail” site and since it so vividly details the insanity of Iran’s leader, Ahmadinejad, we recommend it you. You’ll find it at:

We are facing an enemy, in Ahmadinejad, every bit as dangerous as Hitler and the Nazi party. At some point the US will have to deal with this man and with his insane plan to take the world into chaos. When that day comes, in the not too distant future, we will, as usual, be on our own. We can expect no help from Europe, which will fold, like a cheap suit, at the first serious threat from Iran.

While the totally ineffective UN plays at placating Ahmadinejad, he grows stronger as he nears the realization of his dream of an Iranian Atom bomb.

If the US were blessed with forward thinking leaders, we would be building up our armed forces in preparation for this confrontation, which is just around the corner. But we cannot do so with the limp-wristed leaders we have in the Congress today.

The US “standing Army” should be doubled. Our Navy, Air Force, and Marine Corp needs to be doubled in strength… and as quickly as possible. If that means reinstitution of the draft… then so be it. When war with Iran comes, it won’t be fought from 15,000 feet with smart bombs. It will be a slugfest in the air, on the sea, and on the land. It will not be contained in the Middle East. The continental US will be hit. We can count on it! Missiles launched from ships, lying off shore in international waters, can burst through our radar defenses and hit targets before we can react to stop them.

The US military is seriously weak at this point in our history. Shortsightedness, and a tendency to believe “we can all just get along”, has led the US into a “head in the sand” policy, which will come back to haunt us… and to hurt us.

The US needs a crash program, right now; to build up our military might to a state of readiness we reached in the midst of the Second World War. Although our leaders don’t want to admit it, we are facing the same intensity of danger as we did at the beginning of that war when our military was at one of its lowest ebbs.

When one looks at the threats to the security of the US today and compares it to the reaction of our leadership toward meeting that threat, if one has an ounce of sense, one must be seriously frightened. Our Congressional leadership is tooling along as if nothing in the world matters except who gets elected this November (last November, 2006) and in November of 2008.

Well, I have news for Congress… and the White House. (It ought not be news to the Congress or the President, but it apparently is.) It is time to pay for all the years of relative peace we have enjoyed as a nation. It is time to go to war in a serious manner. “Pussyfooting” around, with Iran, as we have been doing with Iraq for the past 3-1/2 years, will only get us destroyed as a nation. We will only win a war with Iran by utterly destroying them. There will be no room for political correctness. There will be no call for “winning the hearts and minds” of the Iranians. We won’t have time! We’ll be fighting for our very existence!

In the meantime, I fully expect the US to continue along this fairy tale path, assured in it’s on ignorance, that we can talk our way, negotiate our way, out of war with Iran, until thousands of Americans lie dead, and irradiated, in the streets of our large east coast cities.

We have grown fat, and lazy, and extremely vulnerable. Unfortunately, I have come to believe that it will take a mushroom cloud over New York, Boston, or Washington DC to wake us up!

Suicide is a sorry way for a great nation to go!

Talk like this scares me a lot. Yes, there are dangerous factions in Iran, but an all-out war would be foolish, and the way things stand right now, we'd lose.

Problem is, Kurt, we CAN'T wait. They are going to bring the war to us... if we don't strike first. This time there will be far more than 3,000 Americans killed. We're talking hundreds of thousands of American civilians killed.

Do you want to risk that? I don't!

Best regards,
