Kerry Sees Common Ground with Tehran’s Barbaric Terror Regime

Kerry of Arabia.

Secretary of State John “I don’t think we’re stupid” Kerry should think again.

On Tuesday, a branch of al Qaeda executed atrocious twin suicide bombings against Iran’s embassy in Beirut, killing at least 23 people, with more than 140 wounded. Those of us who have urged that the United States should stay out of the Syrian civil war have contended that, deprived of our lightning rod effect, America’s mortal enemies on both sides of the conflict would turn on and thus degrade each other. That is precisely what has happened: al Qaeda, the terror network that is aligned with its fellow America-hating Sunni supremacists, the Muslim Brotherhood, in the effort to oust the Assad regime, has now effectively declared war on Assad’s main Shiite backers, Iran – the world’s chief state sponsor of terrorism – and its Lebanese jihadist militia, Hezbollah.

So what is our secretary of State’s response to this unintended foreign policy coup? (For all policy coups during the Obama administration are unintended.) Kerry actually proclaimed that the attack proves there is common ground between the United States and Iran, with whose jihadist rulers he and President Obama are desperate to make a deal, any deal – as John Bolton explains here, with our Michael Ledeen adding context here. Just like mullahs, Kerry twaddled, “the United States knows too well the cost of terrorism directed at our own diplomats around the world.”

Well, yes, we do. But that’s because, for over 30 years, Iran has aided and abetted terrorists in strikes against American diplomats and other American personnel serving overseas – in addition, perhaps, to attacks on Americans here at home.

As I’ve recounted before, the modern Iranian regime was in fact spawned by Iran’s siege against the U.S. embassy, which began on November 4, 1979. Ultimately, the new jihadist regime held 52 American hostage for well over a year – 444 days, to be exact. Eight U.S. servicemen were also killed during the Carter administration’s botched rescue attempt, undertaken after American diplomats, who sounded very much like John Kerry, were mocked by Ayatollah Ruhollah Kohmeini when they tried to flatter the Iranians and negotiate an end to the crisis.

In early 1982, Iran sponsored the creation of Hezbollah. The dividends were immediate: On April 18, 1983, Hezbollah car-bombed the U.S. embassy in Beirut, killing 63 people (17 of them Americans). Six months later, on October 23, 1983, it attacked the U.S. Marine barracks in Lebanon with a truck bomb, killing 241 of our military personnel (218 Marines, 20 sailors and three soldiers) – also killing 58 French soldiers in a separate attack the same day.

Less than two months later, on December 12, 1983, the U.S. embassy in Kuwait was bombed, killing six and wounding scores of others. The bombers were tied to al-Dawa, a terror organization backed by Iran that was then leading the Shiite resistance against Saddam Hussein’s Iraqi regime (with which Iran was at war). Incidentally, the leader of Dawa’s “jihad office” in Syria at the time was none other than Nouri al-Maliki — now the prime minister of Iraq (you know, the “democrat” who will not relinquish power, supports Iran and Hezbollah, despises Israel, and is now helping re-plunge his country into civil war). Dawa was closely aligned with Hezbollah – indeed, the Kuwait operation was led by Youssef Badreddin, the cousin and brother-in-law of the late Hezbollah chief, Imad Mugniyah.

Meanwhile, back in Lebanon on March 16, 1984, Hezbollah kidnapped the CIA’s Beirut station chief, William Francis Buckley. He was whisked to Damascus and then to Tehran, where he became one of the hostages whose detention led to the Iran/Contra affair. Under Mugniyah’s direction, Buckley was tortured for 15 months, dying of a heart attack under that duress. In the interim, on April 12, 1984, Hezbollah attacked a restaurant frequented by U.S. Air Force personnel near their base in Torrejon, Spain. Among the scores of casualties were 18 murdered U.S. servicemen. Then, on September 20, 1984, Hezbollah car-bombed a U.S. embassy annex in Beirut, killing 24 people (two were Americans).

... let Kerry serve with the Iranian terrorists for three months. If he comes out alive...

Kerry didn't quite make it to 90 days during his "service" in Viet Nam. And he somehow got all those medals, which he threw away in disgust at an antiwar rally. Fake medals for a fake hero. I know a guy who served in the Ashaw Valley (101st Airborne) and then as a LRRP over the mountains in Laos. Then, in his 12th month, he got pissed when much of his unit was shot to death, so he re-upped for a second year in the place. Unlike John Kerry, the dude didn't get a single medal. In fact, they called him Private Major because he was repeatedly busted back down to Private for run ins with pompous asses like Kerry.

Our government has been infested with mooslim operatives for years now...McCain, Boehner and others publicly attacked Michelle Bachmann and Louie Ghomert when they tried to expose the depth to which Dear Leader and Her Thighness had allowed the jihadist penetration oF NSA-CIA-FBI-State and DOD. Numerous previously identified mooslim terrorist supporters and organizers currently review and amend official government training manuals and have access to classified information. You cannot make this stuff up.....there are treasonous bastards in both parties, but the neo-communists in the current regime are active partners with many mooslims who wish to do us harm. Unbelievable.

al Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood is the connection Obamas friends and Allies that he armed so extensively in Egypt and Syria, that the Benghazi murders were connected to and still the weapons and funds flow.
Who was it that placed known members of the Brotherhood Inside of our government? Were their connections told who the CIA's spy's were in the region so they could kill them?
all I have to ask Is it treason yet?
Arming and funding the terrorist enemies of our nation, of the world. Blatant Aid and comfort to the enemy

Kerry of Arabia? What does Arabia have to do with Iran? Iranians are not Arabs, they are Persians. Iranians speak Farsi, not Arabic. Kerry, Prince of Persia is more accurate.

There will never be any justification for dealing with any terrorist element or regime, but the left cares little for history or truth. Kerry of Arabia? More like Kerry the prince of idiots or perhaps more appropriate the king of Neo-Orientalism.

This is like having to choose between supporting Hitler vs. Stalin during WWII.

Nevertheless, it seems to me that the Sunni terrorists have been more cruel, bloodthirsty and fanatic than the Shiite terrorists, and this might be a justification for dealing with Iran.

This is only because once Hezbollah successfully bombed America out of Lebanon, their bloodlust focused entirely on Israel. If you add up the casualties caused by Hezbollah in the 1980s and all the Iranian-sponsored Shia insurgency attacks in Iraq and Afghanistan, and all the other Iranian-sponsored terror attacks in between, I bet it's a comparable number to Sunni-caused 9/11. Mr. Ledeen commented on this a week or two ago: the Shia Iranians often get Sunni Arabs to do their dirty work for them. Still as cruel, bloodthirsty and fanatical, but more interested in sticking around to see the fruits of their labor.

The only reason we supported Stalin is because FDR was sympathetic to communism and had a bunch of communists in his administration. There was absolutely no military reason to support them at all.

Kerry never threw away HIS medals, he didnt have the balls....

And he was still attached to the Naval Reserve when he pulled that Political Stunt, a clear UCMJ violation of proper conduct of an officer…and for THAT (plus his treasonously FALSE testimony about all the “atrocities” he supposedly saw in such a remarkably SHORT tour of duty) he was called on the carpet by Navy Brass.

His Explanation?
No Purer Example of Cowardice I can think of...
"..But… they werent MY medals that I threw away ...they, um, belonged to some OTHER serviceman, who ASKED me to throw them away FOR him… to show HIS contempt for the war... "

And you know, I actually believe that….because we all know Kerry’s Phoney Medals are safely ensconced in a Ruby Sapphire Display Case, vacuum sealed under Nitrogen Purge to prevent tarnish, in the most lavish and conspicuous display that the Hienz Industrial Fortune can provide.

Because, he’s THAT much of a Douche Bag.

Here's the deal: let Kerry serve with the Iranian terrorists for three months. If he comes out alive, then we can listen to what he has to say. If not, then we bury him and any lingering ideas that Iran can actually be reasoned with.

"Kerry of Arabia" - hilarious! 'Lawrence of Arabia' is one of my all-time favorites, though...O'Toole, Sharif, Quinn, Guiness are all wonderful and the soundtrack and cinematography are beautiful. Its a shame they don't make movies like that anymore....or 'Dr. Zhivago' again with Sharif and Guiness along with the goddess Julie Christie. Aaaaah, the memories.
