A Letter to Every Senate Democrat

Dear Senator,

iran dealThe president’s deal with Iran will make the world safer.  That’s what President Obama has told us.  But there are no facts to support his claim.

Not only has Iran has repeatedly violated UN resolutions, but the administration and other governments may have worked to conceal those violations.  Iran has declared its intent to destroy the United States — the Great Satan.  The demands upon Iran are minimal, temporary, and unverifiable.  Even before the ink is dry, Iran is violating the treaty with Maj. Gen. Ghasem Soleimani’s trip to Russia.  Iran will only grow more brazen, because its leaders know that they will not be held accountable by a weak president and an international community in denial.

Senator, this deal is built on a fantasy.  The lessons of Neville Chamberlain’s appeasement are written on the monuments to the martyrs of the Holocaust and World War II.  The lessons of Jimmy Carter’s appeasement treaty are written on the nuclear arsenal of North Korea.  Do we really want to risk the world’s future so that Barack Obama and John Kerry can claim a fictitious victory that is worse than useless?

You don’t have to be Thomas Jefferson to recognize that you can’t make peace with people who don’t want to make peace with you.  Do you really want your name appended to the list of Obama loyalists who will choose politics over common sense?

Please, Senator, please vote for sanity and reject the president’s folly. For the sake of us all, and for the sake of our children.

Mike Huckabee’s the Bomb Thrower?

“This President’s foreign policy is the most feckless in American history.  It is so naive that he would trust the Iranians. By doing so, he will take the Israelis and march them to the door of the oven. This is the most idiotic thing, this Iran deal.”

These are the incendiary words of Mike Huckabee in an interview with the Breitbart News Network.  Woe upon us.

It’s hardly surprising that Barack Obama found the governor’s words offensive; for six years the president has taken offense at every utterance that isn’t laudatory, obeisant, or downright reverential.

It’s also no surprise that John Kerry found the governor’s comments offensive. The Iran deal is Mr. Kerry’s only shot at a Nobel Peace Prize, and the unwelcome reality check of fear-mongers like Prime Minister Netanyahu and Governor Huckabee might, if they find traction (which they won’t), jeopardize his chance to join the ranks of such great historic peacemakers as Jimmy Carter, Al Gore, and Yasir Arafat.
