Nuclear Iran Creates a Terrorist Umbrella

From Newsmax: Former Israeli Ambassador to the United Nations Dore Gold warns that a nuclear-armed Iran would shift "the entire balance in the war on terror" by providing terrorists with a nuclear umbrella.

Speaking at a briefing at the British House of Commons on Oct. 12, Dore — also a former adviser to Israeli prime ministers — said Iran's nuclear program endangers "the security not just of Israel but of the entire Middle East, and I would say the world."

Gold said that as of this past August, Iran had enough nuclear fuel to produce two atomic bombs, and a missile with the capability of striking Israel and Saudi Arabia.

"So if you take the fact that Iran is one of the largest supporters of international terrorism today, and you team that up with the nuclear capabilities that I’ve been describing, you have a security situation which the West has not yet seen," Gold said.

"The whole point of George W. Bush’s decision to remove the Taliban after 9/11 was to send a very clear message: 'You attack the American homeland and we will take down your regime.'

"But fast forward to 2012. Iran has operational nuclear weapons that can strike deep into Europe, and eventually towards the eastern seaboard of the U.S. Will the U.S., U.K., and NATO as a whole have the same freedom of maneuver to say to states that support terrorism, 'We will take you down if you attack us?'

"Will the U.S. Congress authorize sending forces abroad against a state armed with nuclear weapons? In other words, the entire balance in the war on terror shifts, because the state that is the largest global sponsor of terrorism today now has nuclear capabilities . . .

"This nuclear umbrella of Iran will unfurl and will be able to provide protection, not just to Shiite Hezbollah, but to Sunni organizations such as al-Qaida and Hamas."

Gold, now president of the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs, raised the possibility that Israel could strike Iran's nuclear facilities if the international community does not take action.

"I will say that Israel has been thinking about this problem for a very long time," he said in remarks published on the Web site of The Henry Jackson Society, a London-based organization that promotes the foreign policies of former U.S. Sen. Henry "Scoop" Jackson.

"The Israeli air force has been training for action and all options are on the table. But I would say the official position is that there is hope, even at this late date, that the key players in the international community will take action."

He added: "You might think that Iran’s behavior at present is brazen and risky. It looks much less brazen and risky if you recall how often Iran has already defied the West and got away with it."

Lord Monckton: Obama Slated to Sign Away U.S. Sovereignty in December

This 1.5 hour video of the increasingly famous, quite entertaining, while alarming presentation by Lord Christopher Monckton this week here in Minnesota, is perhaps going to be the best-spent hour and a half you will spend this month ... maybe this year.

Here is a link to the presentatation slides (pdf) that accompany the speaker's talk.

Much of this presentation is about truth, and the ridiculous notion that global warming is a scientific fact and represents a legitimate looming global crisis. Of course, the reason for this presentation's widespread fame (or infamy) is that Lord Monckton also points out that President Obama is slated to sign away the sovereignty of the United States at the 2009 UN Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen this December.

Of course, when you think about it, if that is indeed what is about to happen, that does kind of put all the rest of the ludicrous events of this year into some semblance of logical series of increasingly lethal body blows to the core of our once great nation. As Monckton states--this is it. If we don't prevent this from happening in a few weeks--the world is effectively lost to the forces of darkness and fools.

Read the UN agreement for yourself.

Lessons Learned Anew from Tragedies in the Pacific

Our prayers are with the people suffering in the Phillipines, American Samoa, and Indonesia after a rapid-fire succession of generational-level natural catastrophes this week.

Earthquakes, landslides, a tsunami, tropical-storm flooding, now a super typhoon ...

The survivors of any one of these devastating crises would have a hard time getting the relief and aid they need today given the global economy. But with the multiplying widespread need for help in that region and desperate demands far outstripping available resources--things are going to be getting a lot worse in each of those locales before they take a turn for the better.

The lesson to be taken to heart once again is that you CANNOT count on authorities, governments, relief agencies, or even your neighbors to be there to rescue you in your time of unexpected calamity.

It's not always a fail-safe solution, but it is the best personal strategy in a world growing increasingly unpredictable ... that is, being prepared. Having supplies, resources, plans, abilities, and the mindset to survive the worst-case eventualities in life.

Our forefathers understood the importance of prudent planning and saving for long winters and rainy days. Today, in spite of government agencies bloated beyond all historical recognition and tax burdens growing exponentially, there IS NO universal rescue force; or for that matter, no Justice League of America ready to sweep in and put all the pieces back together again.

Self-reliance and preparedness make up the best possible fallback position for someone suffering a direct-hit from a natural or man-made disaster.

Get it done.
