We know Iran is one of our biggest enemies.
While Presidents of the past have handled the rogue nation with a strict hand, Obama seems to be rolling over in support of them. This, despite their ongoing hostile attitude toward us.
They regularly take aim at our allies, most notably Israel. They oppress their own people, denying them basic rights like freedom of speech. And their leaders take every opportunity to attack our beliefs and way of life.
Although as civilized people, we would treat Iranian sailors with dignity and respect, they don’t seem to share that value. Recent details have come out of their treatment of some of our men. It’s truly unacceptable.
From Free Beacon:
The classified details behind Iran’s treatment of several U.S. sailors who were captured by the Islamic Republic during a tense standoff earlier this year are likely to shock the nation, according to one member of the House Armed Services Committee, who disclosed to the Washington Free Beacon that these details are currently being withheld by the Obama administration.
Details of the abduction are likely to start an uproar in the nation and call into question the Obama administration’s handling of the incident, which many experts say violated international and maritime law.
Rep. Randy Forbes has spoken about the situation, citing that the details are still being covered up by Obama. Not a surprise, as this operation was on his watch, an operation some say was illegal.
Though we don’t have all the facts, we don’t have to go too far to think about what Iran is doing. Because of the short-sidedness of our president, some of our men are prisoners in a hostile country.
“I think that when the details actually come out, most Americans are going to be kind of taken aback by the entire incident, both how Iran handled it and how we handled it,” Forbes disclosed. “I think that’s going to be huge cause for concern for most Americans. That’s why I’ve encouraged members of Congress to get that briefing so they do know exactly what did take place.”
It’s an ugly situation, one that mainstream media would be happy to hide from you.
Iran is taking more aggressive actions toward us and our allies and the news is silent. Obama makes bad decisions and endangers our men and the news is silent. How long are we going to tolerate this?
“Iranian military and paramilitary vessels have repeatedly behaved in a dangerous and unprofessional manner in close proximity to naval vessels and commercial shipping operating in internationally recognized maritime traffic lanes,” according to a copy of the measure viewed by the Free Beacon.
The list of provocations includes a December 2015 incident in which Iran conducted a “live firing exercise within 1,500 yards of the U.S. aircraft carrier Harry S. Truman.”
It’s time this kind of behavior is put to a stop. Iran needs to be confronted by the international community as the danger it is. And the United States needs to stop playing paddy cake with this aggressive enemy of the free world.
Maybe we’ll soon get a president in office that understands that.
