Iran sends force to Tunisia 2

We say in the post below, Hope and change in the Arab world, that the violent revolts could develop into a conflict between a movement for freedom and religious tyranny. We say that if America ignores the dramatic change occurring there, Islamic forces (the militant Iranian Shia regime, the Muslim Brotherhood, Taliban-like al-Qaeda) stand a better chance of winning.

Already the dark Islamic forces are positioning themselves to seize power.

Oliver North writes at Townhall:

What’s most important right now is how the Obama administration handles the increasingly intense cries for greater freedom sweeping from Tunisia to Yemen — threatening every authoritarian Muslim regime in that region save one: Iran’s.

The theocrats in Tehran didn’t foment the “Jasmine Revolution” — the youth-driven popular uprising that forced Tunisia’s Zine El Abidine Ben Ali to flee the presidential palace he occupied for 23 years. … But the ayatollahs are capitalizing on the expanding chaos.

Expatriate Iranian opposition figures claim that members of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps’ Quds force have been dispatched to Tunis “to help guide developments.”

Ominous! And worse news follows – if it is true:

Tehran’s government-controlled Fars News Agency has since quoted Jamil bin Alawi, a Tunisian “student activist,” as saying, “The advanced revolutionary and Islamic models like the Hezbollah of Lebanon can provide a bright and promising prospect for Tunisia.”

Jamil bin Alawi sounds to us – as he does to Oliver North, we guess, since he puts the words “student activist” in quotation marks – like a parrot-mouth for the Ayatollahs rather than a spokesman for the Tunisian revolutionaries.

In Egypt — where riot police and the army are confronting angry protesters with tear gas, batons and gunfire — the Iranians may well see another autocratic regime ripe for Islamic revolution. Student-led riots opposing the 30-year reign of President-for-Life Hosni Mubarak erupted Monday in Cairo and quickly spread throughout the country.

Unlike their counterparts in Tunisia and Lebanon, the Egyptian police and army thus far appear loyal to their leader, Mubarak, and the government has all but shut down press access and communications, including many Internet links. …

Now reports are coming out of Egypt that at least some policemen and soldiers are discarding their uniforms and joining the protestors.

    My solution to the world terrorism problem ————– Here in the USA we need to elect the following to political office in the USA :

    Predident of USA——————- Col. Oliver North
    Vice-President of USA———— Col. Allen West
    Secretary of Defense of USA —— Gen. Norman Schwarkopf
    Secretary of State of USA———– Gov. Jessie Ventura

    Items on the the political agenda ( not necessarily in this order ) :

    (1) Close our border, put our troops on our borders , and deport ALL illegal aliens.
    (2) Bomb the living crap out of that nuclear facility in Iran ( no excuses ).
    (3) Put our Naval fleet around the coast of Somalia and blast the $#@% out of any Somalian pirate that comes within a certain perimiter of a sea going vessel. Also, arm all sea going vessels with a security team along with 50-caliber guns and rocket launchers for self protection of said vessels. All captured pirates are given a military tribunal and then executed immediately upon being found guilty. Set an example for the world to see. Send a massive surgical strike team and rescue military team to rescue the hostages in Somalia and rescue the hostages and bring the captured vessels out of that s###hole of a country.
    (4) Stand up to ALL acts of terrorism with brute military force and retaliation to let these barbarians know we are fed up and not going to take this crap anymore. Then you will see a different attitude. Stop financing groups tied to terrorism and anti-American sentiments.
    (5) If the Middle East becomes increasingly a threat to the USA and our allies then we do to them what president Truman did to Japan after Japan attacked us at Pearl Harbor. Anybody remember ? We NUKED their A## !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    (6) Stand up and fight for our rights and future survival and stop the PC bullcrap . You cannot negotiate with terroists —-you have to kill them or they will kill you. Vote out all these incumbent limp-wristed wimps in political office and put REAL MEN with guts in office who will stand up and defend America and our allies. This is MY position and the position of the great majority of Americans with common sense .
    (7) Adopt as our national motto one of the slogans we had in the Marines—- ” If you mess with the best–you’ll die like the rest ” . Terrorism problem addressed !!!!
    All the wimpified sissies who disagree or are offended by me saying this can bite me ! End of story . Semper Fi !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
