Losing wars has consequences. Other enemies see it as an invitation to win a war against you, too. They see you as weak and incompetent. It doesn’t help that Obama is making deals with Iran and proposing putting an embassy there. Obama has succeeded in emboldening the entire Middle East and giving them the confidence that they can destroy America and Israel. There’s no reason not to try now. Obama is blind and inexperienced and he has cost us dearly around the world.
The commander of Iran’s notorious Basij forces declared Monday that the Islamic Republic’s ultimate goal is the destruction of America and Israel.
“Today there is no mandate to end our fight because Iran’s greatness in the region and the repeated losses by the Zionists and America are the proof of our fight up to today,” Gen. Mohammad Naghdi said, according to Fars News Agency. “Our ideal is not [nuclear] centrifuges but the destruction of the White House and the annihilation of Zionism [Israel].”
The regime’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, has also called for the continuation of the fight to destroy America, saying: “This battle will only end when the society can get rid of the oppressors’ front with America at the head of it, which has expanded its claws on human mind, body and thought. … This requires a difficult and lengthy struggle and a need for great strides.” …..
