Iran Wants Republicans Tried for War Crimes

I guess because Democrats didn’t vote for the war in Iraq, or Bosnia, or Somalia…

Here’s a text book case of projection From Fars News:

TEHRAN (Fars News Agency)- Deputy head of Iran’s judiciary here Tuesday called on the world’s independent legal and judicial bodies to form a war tribunal to punish the United States’ warmongering ruling party for its crimes.

Seyed Ebrahim Rayisee viewed the recent statements made by the US president about contingencies of World War III as a serious threat to the international peace and security, and stressed, “Iran’s peaceful nuclear activities are carried out under the legal and technical inspections of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and such remarks indicate the ignorance and confused status of the US ruling party in dealing with international relations, and specially Iran’s peaceful nuclear activities.”

He further said that the crimes committed by the US ruling party in Iraq and Afghanistan as well as Washington’s increasing threats in the international arena would bring nothing to the US but further political isolation.

The official said the world today knows very well that the hawkish policies of the US administration have come to a dead-end, “and in case the United States continues violation of the international norms and criteria, it will have to face increased pressures from the side of the world Public opinion, particularly the American people, insisting the illogical leaders of that country to revise their current attitudes.”

It’s almost as if the rulers are talking about themselves and their relationship with the Iranian people who’ve toiled under the occupation of an Arabized regime that Jimmy Carter helped put into power for decades.

It’s no wonder the G.O.P. is attacked by Iran, the Mullahs were put into power by the perfidity of Jew hating communist Carter and still retains an ideological alliance with the Marxists in this country now. The Mullahs owe the “hard left” in this country everything, and still retain hope that a new leftist government will give them the same gift Carter gave them in the 70’s: A free hand to enact their barbarity:

Remember Carter’s human rights program, where he demanded the Shah of Iran step down and turn over power to the Ayatollah Khomeini?

No matter that Khomeini was a madman. Carter had the U.S. Pentagon tell the Shah’s top military commanders – about 150 of them – to acquiesce to the Ayatollah and not fight him.

The Shah’s military listened to Carter. All of them were murdered in one of the Ayatollah’s first acts.

By allowing the Shah to fall, Carter created one of the most militant anti-American dictatorships ever.

Soon the new Iranian government was ransacking our embassy and held hostage its staff for over a year. Only President Reagan’s election gave Iran the impetus to release the hostages.

I believe Carter’s decision to have the Shah fall is arguably the most egregious U.S. foreign policy mistake of the last 50 years. [Former President Bush’s decision to allow Saddam Hussein to stay in power is a close second.]

With the Shah gone, the whole region was destabilized. The Soviet Union invaded Afghanistan; no doubt a direct link to the rise of the Taliban can be traced to this invasion. Iraq also took advantage of the Shah’s departure to invade Iran. A long war followed that helped make Saddam’s Iraq a great Middle Eastern power.

And decades after Carter’s ignominious act, Iran is still bent on destroying America. President Bush named it one of the three nations in the “axis of evil.” Iran is developing both nuclear weapons and the missiles to deliver these weapons to its enemies.

We can thank Jimmy Carter for all of this.

Since Carter left the presidency, he has had little to say about the human rights abuses in Iran. Why should he? Iran opposes the U.S.

Instead, he has focused his attention on Israel, America’s lone democratic ally in the Mideast. Recently, Carter suggested that the U.S. should cut off aid to Israel, so angry was he after Israel sought to defend itself in the wake of suicide bombings.

Fair enough. But what has Carter said about Arab or Muslim countries that have had long records of human rights abuse – Syria or Libya or Iran or Iraq?

Not much. One reason may be money. As NewsMax’s Dave Eberhart reported recently, Carter and his Carter Center foundation are recipients of millions of dollars of Arab money.

It should be no surprise, given the closeness of Radical Islamists with the “anti-Zionist ” left that now their officials are getting their talking points from Soros affiliated websites and the horde of armchair revolutionaries who parrot their every word. How much different was Iran’s call for G.O.P. persecution than calls from these sites that have been going on for years?

The comments section of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee’s weblog. See how far the Dems have tracked to the left?

Iran, just as Islamists in general, are reaching out to the anti-American left in America to find allies. And it’s to our great shame that they can so easily find them.
