Good morning kids. Happy New Year and Decade. As we ring out the old and ring in the new, the new is an Iran-backed attack by Iraqis on our embassy in Baghdad. Reports are that they crashed through the gates and got within about 200 yards of the main building but did not enter it or other buildings in the embassy compound. American soldiers responded with tear gas, stun grenades and warning shots that reportedly injured over 60 of the attackers. As of this writing there are no reports of any injuries among our forces.
…The militants’ assault on the U.S. embassy compound is the latest in a series of escalating confrontations drawing Iraq further into the regional conflict between the United States and the Iranian regime. It follows the rocket attack conducted by Iranian proxies, to which the United States responded with an airstrike in Iraq and Syria that killed at least 24 Hezbollah-affiliated militants and wounded dozens of others.
U.S. officials are concerned that the Iraqi government is not doing enough to fulfill its obligation to protect embassy personnel because of undue influence exerted by Iran. Iraqi security forces were reportedly slow to counter the militants, who carried out their attack after attending a funeral for the militants killed as a result of the U.S. airstrikes. The Iraqi National Security Council focused squarely on blaming the United States for having conducted its airstrikes in “violation of Iraq’ sovereignty.” The statement added, “This is a serious violation of the rules of engagement of the Coalition forces, including the US forces, in carrying out operations without the approval of the Iraqi Government…“
Really? Do these sand fleas think we are stupid enough to swallow that line knowing their country, if you can call rubble and pre-medieval squalor a country, is not significantly if not totally under Iranian control and/or influence? That said, it does raise the legitimate question of what is our purpose if remaining in Iraq and if it is to act as a bulwark or check on Iran as opposed to G-d-forbid nation-building in Iraq, how do we best accomplish that? In any case, all of this leading up to and including this attack is a desperate attempt by the Farsis to create a Tet Offensive moment that will be used by their allies in the Democrat-Media Complex to help sink Trump in this year’s election and thereby ease the internal pressure that no doubt could lead to the downfall of the regime.
The reaction from those quarters has been to try and tar Trump with this as his “Benghazi,” meaning a major foreign policy failure. I find that particularly stupid on their part since that infamous attack on the anniversary of 9/11 in 2012 which they claimed was a reaction to a spontaneous protest against a video directed by a nobody that nobody saw which naturally had nothing to do with an Obama/Clinton failure. Way to stay on message folks. As an aside, what we have since found out is Obama and Clinton left four Americans to die in Benghazi in order to cover up an arms running scheme to Muslim terrorists putatively on our side in Syria. You want to talk about foreign policy disasters within disasters? Where to unpack that?! As bad as Moammar Qaddafi was, at least he was able to keep a lid on his own country and was scared into dismantling his nuke program thanks to Dubya. It was Obama’s embracing of the Muslim Brotherhood early on in his reign of error that destabilized the entire region from Tunisia all the way east to Syria, south to Yemen and of course Iraq where his precipitous withdrawal led to whatever fragile scintilla of a society attempting to rebuild itself was strangled in the cradle like a Coonman Northam newborn.
Circling back, the President has stated in no uncertain terms that this is not going to be anything like Benghazi. Instead of going off to Vegas to smoke a blunt with Jay Z while leaving Christopher Stephens, Sean Smith, Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty to be slaughtered, inventing a bizarre tale about some offensive videotape as the culprit and having the media dutifully spin that tale in order to prevent losing a presidential election just weeks away, this President acted presidential by immediately calling in reinforcements and promising measured retaliation. Upwards of 4,000 Marines and GIs are ready to be deployed should the situation warrant.
And now gentle reader, I bring you perhaps the most galling item related to this; the statement from former Obama stooge Ben Rhodes. This insect, who once boasted that he created an echo chamber of young, mal-educated stooges with press credentials to push the Obama party line in the national media, and whose only qualification in the realm of foreign policy was that he was once a screenwriter Tweeted out:
Trump sanctions on Iran have done nothing to change Iranian behavior except make it worse. This is what happens when your foreign policy is based on Obama envy, domestic politics, Saudi interests, and magical right wing thinking.
This was followed by:
“It’s hard to overstate what a total failure Trump’s Iran policy has been. Nuclear program resumed. Regional provocations escalated. US isolated.”
GOP Rep Lee Zeldin then “pounced” with a 100-megaton truth nuke:
“…Pallets of cash. Ransom payments. Tens of Billions freed for terrorism. Kidnapping & shaming US Navy Sailors. Test firing ICBMs. Financing Assad in Syria & Hezbollah in Lebanon. Helping the Houthis overthrow the govt in Yemen…That was Iran on your watch Subject Matter Expert”
Bingo. But wait! There’s more! The cherry on top of it all is that the Iranian militia leader Hadi al Amiri (pictured above) who led the attack on the embassy was actually a guest of Obama at the White House. Hey Ben, have I got a script idea for you!
Along with reinforcements and hopefully a few well-placed missiles into some sort of Iranian supply depot, the President is reportedly ramping up additional sanctions against Iran. I don’t know how much more tightly you can squeeze them. But clearly, this action by the Iranian-backed stooges and Iranians themselves shows they are desperate to try and aid the Democrats in ousting the President. Spoiler alert: It will not work.
