Iranian Expansion

When I was growing up and first entered the military the big global threat was Russia. Once Russia fell down it seems their proxy agents stepped up. This can certainly be said in regards to Iran over the past few years. This blog is not intended to be a repository of Iranian actions; however, the actions taken since Ahmedinijad took the presidency of Iran, seem to closely parallel those which Russia was taking. The use of Iran by the Soviets is not new, either.

However, the threat of Iran is the burning issue which more people should be paying attention to. Hitler told the world what he was going to do. So has Ahmedinijad. Ahmedinijad has said that he wants to be the one to establish the global chaos necessary to bring the mahdi. He wants to spread chaos and the death and turmoil that goes with it. Look at Syria and Lebanon, Sudan, Somalia, and Yemen for examples of the chaos which Ahmedinijad is fomenting and funding.

Why not use economic sanctions and bans against doing business with Iran? This is a good question. The simple answer is that there are a host of countries, that include North Korea, Russia, China, Cuba, and Venezuela (to name a few) which are both hostile towards the United States and eager to spend their money on Iran. What is not so simple is why the US Government continues to do business with countries and businesses that are also currently doing business with Iran. It is correct to say that the US Government is currently awarding contracts to countries and businesses that are also doing business with Iran. You do realize that any international Iranian firm is also a proxy of the Iranian government, don’t you?

So, due to the complexities of international law, business, and a plethora of other bureaucracies and loopholes, there is little hope of actually harming Iran by way of economic sanctions. There are too many avenues by which Iran can elude such binding resolutions as the ones the world witnessed in operation against the old Iraqi regime, Oil For Food.

Appeasement is among the current biggest problems in US policy towards enemies. Appeasement has been the chief motivating factor informing the US’s intense support for Palestinian statehood close ties with Iran. Appeasement provoked the US to embrace radical Islamic religious leaders and terror operatives such as Sami Arian and Abdurahman Alamoudi as credible leaders in the US Muslim community. Appeasement stood behind the US’s bid to try to entice Iran to end its nuclear weapons programs with grand bargains.

It is allowing Syria to support al-Qaida and Hezbollah as well as Palestinian terror groups; its proliferation of weapons of mass destruction; or its involvement in facilitating the insurgency in Iraq and to continue as a proxy for Iran

Recently President Sarkozy of France put Obama to shame in the Men’s Department. Sarkozy called out Iran for it’s military, nuclear and ballistic ambitions. He said this constitutes a growing threat which “would provoke a major crisis that France wants to avoid at all costs.”In the eyes of Sarkozy Iran’s growing ambitions may be enough of a threat for a preventative attack, although it remains unsaid as to who would conduct said attack.

Iran's UN ambassador said in a letter to UN leaders that his country would "not hesitate to act in self-defense to respond to any attack against the Iranian nation." "Iran is a leading nation in rejecting and opposing all kinds of weapons of mass destruction, including nuclear weapons," said Iranian UN ambassador Khazaee. With the exception of the radical organization known as Gharargahe Asheghane Shahadat (The Lovers of Martyrdom Garrison), some 50,000 men and women for the stated purpose of suicide operations against the United States and Europe. That is, according to Ahmedinijad (

The Obama administration is continuing to use a failing policy of appeasement while Iran is using a policy of expanding. According to FARS, the semi-state owned official newspaper of Iran, the country has been and continue to carry out expansion in Cuba, Ecuador, and Venezuela.

In Ecuador there are a number of narco-terror related organizations that have a history of attacking US corporations. These groups include the likes of FARC, the Colombian National Liberation Army, various Marxist-Leninist parties, the Popular Combatants Group, and the Revolutionary Militias of the People. These groups have attacked US companies in Ecuador. Into Ecuador comes the Iranian owned Red Crescent Society, IRCS. The IRCS has conducted itself in support of terrorism and terrorists in, for instance, Somalia. What other group operates under the Iranian flag? Oh, yes, Hezbollah. My assessment is that the IRCS, which is opening a high end medical facility in Ecuador (according to FARS), is going to operate in support of the aforementioned groups. We have seen growth in the relationship between Venezuela and Iran as well as Cuba and Iran. Now we see a growing relationship with Ecuador. Iran is beyond the point where containment will work.

What should the US do? The US administration, or at least its Senators and Congressmen, need to dig deep and find a pair. The West must stand absolutely and resolutely with its allies in the West and in the East. We must hold a firm line and not flinch or waiver.
