Iranian President Hassan Rouhani


It is not often that I pay attention to any thing the President of Iran says but some things that President Hassan Rouhani said to Ann Curry on NBC got my attention and we need to consider what he said.

He was talking about the fight agaisnt ISIS and the fact that it can’t be won from the air alone. Here are his words.

“Are Americans afraid of giving casualties on the ground in Iraq? Are they afraid of their soldiers being killed in the fight they claim is against terrorism?” Rouhani said.

“If they want to use planes and if they want to use unmanned planes so that nobody is injured from the Americans, is it really possible to fight terrorism without any hardship, without any sacrifice? Is it possible to reach a big goal without that? In all regional and international issues, the victorious one is the one who is ready to do sacrifice.

Asked about the extremists’ beheading of American James Foley and Steven Sotloff and Briton David Haines, Rouhani said ISIS’ actions are at odds with Islamic tenets.

“They want to kill humanity,” he said. “And from the viewpoint of the Islamic tenets and culture, killing an innocent people equals the killing of the whole humanity. And therefore, the killing and beheading of innocent people in fact is a matter of shame for them and it’s the matter of concern and sorrow for all the human and all the mankind.”

The above paragraph is so hypocritical coming from a regime who beheads or hangs Christians and others who don’t convert or try to share their faith.  As I posted prior world domination for the Islamic faith is part of all the Jihadists creed for both Sunni or Shiite. They also follow the creed that killing those who won’t convert is allowed.

Our President apparently doesn’t  get how the rest of the world looks at his leadership and being so naive to say that under no circumstances will there be American boots on the ground. Everyone both friend and enemy know that the policy laid out by this administration will fail.

Lets hope someone in Washington wakes up.

Until next time Be Safe:
