U.S. wrestling team to confront Iran in Obama's stead? Heh.......

In the face of Iran's global terror campaign - including an Iranian backed "terrorist cell" in Bahrain that was recently nabbed while planning to target military sites and public figures inside the country - President Obama has continuously reassured the Iranian regime that he will not meddle in its internal affairs and that he will make every effort to ensure that the regime remains safely ensconced in power.

However, with Obama giving the Mullahs his word of honor that "regime change" will never happen, the regime can continue waging its global terror campaign with impunity.

Consequently, it has now fallen upon the U.S. wrestling team to confront Iran in Obama's stead.

The AP reported on Friday that the United States will host Iran and Russia in a wrestling exhibition in New York City next month.

U.S. wrestling officials said the Iranian national team, as well as the Russian national team, will face off against the Americans in Grand Central Terminal on May 15. Iran hasn't wrestled in the U.S. since the 2003 world championships. [But of course, with Obama, anything is possible, heh....]

It should be noted that these athletes do not necessarily espouse the views of their respective leaders, but I figured, 'what the heck', why not use an interesting news item to bring out a point.

In 2009, when mass protests broke out in Iran after the Iranian Presidential election - which many believed was fixed in favor of the hardliners - President Obama refused to lend his support to the protesters because, as he explained at the time, "It is not productive... to be seen as meddling - the U.S. president meddling - in Iranian elections."

Likewise, on November 4, 2009, the White House released a statement in commemoration of the 30th anniversary of the seizing of the American Embassy in Tehran, stating: “We do not interfere in Iran’s internal affairs. We have condemned terrorist attacks against Iran. We have recognized Iran’s international right to peaceful nuclear power. We have demonstrated our willingness to take confidence-building steps along with others in the international community.”

I noted at the time that Obama wasn't the only world leader who chose not to meddle in Iran's internal affairs after the 2009 Presidential election. Hezbollah Deputy Secretary General, Sheikh Naim Qassem, apparently taking his cue from Obama, expressed a similar position on Iran's Presidential election:

"Hezbollah has nothing to do with Iran's internal affairs...," said Qassem. "We don't side with anyone. This is an internal Iranian issue."

Hezbollah apparently agreed with Obama's position.......

However, as I noted back in February:
"President Obama has continuously reassured the Iranian government that he is not seeking, and will not seek, regime change in Iran; Chuck Hagel strongly advocates the same policy. And this is indeed the correct path to take, for only a non-meddling policy on Obama's part, that ensures there will be no regime change in Iran, will afford the Iranian government the opportunity to further engage in their peaceful terrorist activities......." 

Ahem......
Nevertheless, Obama might have finally decided to alter his pacifist approach with Iran by flexing a little bit of muscle at his Iranian counterparts via the U.S. wrestling team......  Heh........ 

Just kidding.........

Protest to draw awareness of Russian and Iranian activity on 9/11

Anonymous said...

A U.S. District court has ruled Iran shares responsibility for 9/11 terror attacks. Former KGB agent Alexander Litvinenko alleged that Ayman al-Zawahiri, the current leader of al-Qaeda, was trained for half of a year by the FSB (KGB successor) in Russia during 1997. Litvinenko was later poisoned with radioactive polonium-210 and died. A Russian arms dealer and former Soviet officer named Viktor Bout has been convicted in a U.S. court of arming Al Qaeda and conspiring to kill American citizens. On 9/11 Russia conducted the largest exercise of their Strategic Nuclear Forces since the Cold War. The Russian exercise diverted NORAD fighter aircraft to Alaska and Northern Canada, fighters that could have tried to intercept the hijacked planes. See Video
