Saracuda: Iran Must Be Stopped

Compare and contrast Sarah’s notions regarding Iran to Barry’s. Here is part of the speech she would have given at the Ahmadinejad protest (read the full thing at The NY Sun)

I am honored to be with you and with leaders from across this great country — leaders from different faiths and political parties united in a single voice of outrage.

Tomorrow, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad will come to New York — to the heart of what he calls the Great Satan — and speak freely in this, a country whose demise he has called for.

Ahmadinejad may choose his words carefully, but underneath all of the rhetoric is an agenda that threatens all who seek a safer and freer world. We gather here today to highlight the Iranian dictator’s intentions and to call for action to thwart him.

He must be stopped.

The world must awake to the threat this man poses to all of us. Ahmadinejad denies that the Holocaust ever took place. He dreams of being an agent in a “Final Solution” — the elimination of the Jewish people. He has called Israel a “stinking corpse” that is “on its way to annihilation.” Such talk cannot be dismissed as the ravings of a madman — not when Iran just this summer tested long-range Shahab-3 missiles capable of striking Tel Aviv, not when the Iranian nuclear program is nearing completion, and not when Iran sponsors terrorists that threaten and kill innocent people around the world.

Forceful. On point. She goes after the bad guy. We already know that Barry’s first impulse is to talk to Mahmoud without conditions, but, he likes to change it up to sound tough

“I think that a nuclear-armed Iran is not just a threat to us, it’s a threat to Israel,” Obama said. “It is a game-changer in the region. It’s unacceptable. And that’s why I’ve said that I won’t take any options off the table, including military, to prevent them from obtaining a nuclear weapon.”

Options like having tea and crumpets with Mahmoud. Interestingly, there is no mention on Obama’s official webpage that military options are even considered an option (picture of it here.) Funny how ones own policy stances can destroy a pretty speech. And, yes, it does still say he would talk to Mahmoud with absolutely no preconditions.

The Democratic hopeful went on to claim that the Bush administration had wasted time in failing to address the Iranian threat, saying, “We have not applied the kind of tough diplomacy over the last eight years that I think could have made a difference.”

Perhaps Barry should take that up with the EU and UN, who have been trying for years. But, hey, nothing like blaming the wrong people thru BDS, right, Barry?
