Whatever the driving force behind Obama's itching trigger finger to launch a "limited" military strike against Assad's Syrian government, the price for scratching his itch may cost more than just military lives, military material resources and the potential initiation of World War III. Iran has fervently vowed support to the Syrian government and "threatens to unleash terrorism should the US strike." Qassem Soleimani, Iran's Quds forces head, told the "Assembly of Experts – the body that chooses the supreme leader – that 'we will support Syria to the end.'"
Meanwhile, a former Iranian official issued a statement warning of "mass abductions and brutal killings of American citizens around the world and the rape and killing of one of Obama's daughters should the United States attack Syria."
According to the Daily Caller:
Alireza Forghani, the former governor of southern Iran's Kish province, threw down the gauntlet last week. Forghani is an analyst and strategy specialist in the supreme leader's camp and closely aligned with Mehdi Taeb, who heads the regime's Ammar Strategic Base, a radical think tank, and thus speaks with the blessings of the Islamic regime.
"Hopefully Obama will be pigheaded enough to attack Syria, and then we will see the … loss of US interests [through terrorist attacks]," he threatened. "In just 21 hours [after the attack on Syria], a family member of every US minister [department secretary], US ambassadors, US military commanders around the world will be abducted. And then 18 hours later, videos of their amputation will be spread [around the world]."
This is a threat that is far from hollow. In Beirut in 1984, William Buckley, a CIA station chief, was abducted and killed by Hezbollah on Iran's order. The video of the act was dropped off at the US Embassy in Athens. William Casey, former CIA director, described the video as "horrific, medieval and barbarous."
Forghani warned, "We should remind Obama that if you are a bastard, there are other bastards all around the world who can assault Sasha." The Daily Caller article states Forghani's statement was written in both Farsi and English, "but in the Farsi version, Forghani clearly stated that Sasha will be raped by someone who has been able to get close to the Obama family."
Forghani concluded, "Obama will attack Syria and then you'll go to hell, and the world's public opinion will accept that you deserve to be attacked and assaulted, so please attack."
So, to appease his controllers, Obama is not only willing to risk World War III, but the lives of family members of department secretaries, US ambassadors, US military commanders and the life of his own daughter. If Congress supports this psychopathic attack, it is possible that terrorist attacks against already identified US targets could be unleashed. Obama's "shot across the bow" could have grave consequences here at home.
Could terrorists infiltrate the country, gain access to US officials' families here (including the president's own daughters) and create havoc around the world in targeting families abroad? News outlets have reported that terrorist organizations are recruiting individuals in targeted Latin American countries to enter the US via the "open" southern border. Muslim Brotherhood members are in key positions in the US government and have access to the most sensitive intelligence information, to include information gathered by the NSA on every individual residing in the United States. Obama routinely invites known terrorist to social gatherings and "official" meetings at the White House. A terrorist organization attacked the consulate in Benghazi and an order to stand down was given. John McCain has had his photo taken with known terrorists fighting in Syria.
Regardless of which faction of Islam is involved, the truth of the matter is that Islam is Islam and anyone who is not of Islamic faith is an infidel deserving death.
As Mr. Spock stated in the movie Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered County, "An ancestor of mine maintained that if you eliminate the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth."
Many Americans would believe it impossible to get close enough to the president or his family or for that matter any US government official in order to inflict any type of harm to them or members of their families. Forghani, in his statements, seems confident in the ability of Islamic terrorists to carry out these threats. In addition, the threats issued by Forghani were emphasized by the chief commander of Iran's Revolutionary Guards, Mohammed Ali Jafari. On the same day Forghani issued his threats, Ali Jafari told the regime's Fars News Agency that "America's vision in its ability for a limited strike in Syria is an illusion. The reaction will be beyond Syria's borders … [and] those who participate with America in this matter will soon witness threats on their national security."
Mehdi Taeb has previously stated, "Syria is the 35th province [of Iran] and a strategic province for us … if we lose Syria, we won't be able to hold Tehran."
Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, along with regime officials, have indicated on many occasions that Assad's regime "is their red line and that any attack on Syria will have grave consequences for Israel and America."
Frankly, I'll go with Mr. Spock on this one.
It seems Obama's battleship mouth has overloaded his rowboat ass with the "red line" comment. What is even worse is the fact that if Congress goes along with this madness, every American will be sitting in that little rowboat without any oars, floatation devices or lifeboats. Not only could terrorist attacks against America and her citizens be forthcoming, there is the risk of World War III and the detonation of nuclear devices by those without any conscience or concern for the aftermath. Obama's attitude to this whole scenario compares to the Gone with the Wind comment by Rhett Butler to Scarlett O'Hara – "Frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn."
Be prepared America. The Doomsday Clock and The Tyranny Clock is moving closer, ever closer, to midnight; and, the entire world may pay for the arrogant narcissism of one despotic supposedly American man supported by an ever increasing despotic American Congress.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook, Google Plus, & Twitter.
