Attacking Iran: The Sooner the Better
By: Elias Bejjani

March 23/2010

Apparently the Western, Arabic and Free World countries have all badly failed in their laborious, peaceful overtures, logical approaches and reasonable rapprochement towards Iran and its daydreaming and detached from reality president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, and its fanatical, tunnel-visioned mullahs.

All western strategies and plans aiming to stop the Iranian mullahs from owning an atomic bomb have been facing an ongoing series of scornful and humiliating failures, although the peaceful overtures have been initiated and perused on many levels and through numerous communication channels.

Up till now Iran's fanatical Islamic fundamentalist leadership has arrogantly ignored all the declared dire concerns of the whole world regarding their questionable nuclear program, while openly and boldly ridiculing and rebuffing each and every goodwill gesture and civilized conciliatory attempt taken by the USA, England, France, Italy, Spain and other European countries, as well as Russia, China, numerous Arabic and Islamic countries.  

Sadly, the fact that the West is not yet willing to understand is that the Iranian mullahs, the notorious Revolutionary Guards and President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad divinely believe that it is their country's holy right to own the atomic bomb no matter what the "infidel" West, the "American Great Satan", or the "rogue" and "corrupted" Arab regimes think, say or do.

By human standards of logic, facts, reasoning, consequences and sanity, the current Iranian leaders are detached from reality and haunted by a plague of grandiose delusions and overvalued religious doctrines. It is worth mentioning that a delusion is a false psychotic idea or belief that does not match the reality, powers, influence or capabilities of the person. A delusion can't be corrected by reasoning, logic or proof.  The deluded person detaches himself from reality and lives in castles of fantasies. 

There is no doubt that the Iranian leadership does not by any means comprehend the kind of civilized and peaceful language the Western world speaks. At the same time, they are not even trying to learn it. This western language is one they hate, do not respect and despise.  

This pathetic reality simply means that all western overtures will keep being totally ignored by Iran and thrown into Ahmadinejad's garbage bin. This civilized and peaceful language is wrongly interpreted by the mullahs and Ahmadinejad as a sign of cowardice, fear, submission, weakness and helplessness.  

In order to ensure a secure, effective and productive two way communication with Iran's fundamentalist leadership the Obama administration, the whole Free World, as well as the Islamic and Arabic countries should speak the only language that this derailed leadership comprehends: the language of power and deterrence. All other means are only futile and buying time for the mullahs and Ahmadinejad.  

One should admit that the Iranian leadership has proved through all stages of the fruitless and unproductive negotiations with the West that they are masters in opportunism, in playing on western differences and Arab countries' fears, procrastination, deception and dhimmitude. They are betting on the hesitation and indecisiveness of their adversaries and sadly up till now they have been very successful.

The USA, Europe, Israel and all other Free World countries, as well as the Arab countries should once and for all forget their hesitation, fear, procrastination and double standards in regard to Iran, Syria and all the terrorist organizations that revolve in their orbit.  

In reality, Iran imposes more of a serious threat to the Arab countries, than it does to Israel, but because of the chronic and sickening double standard stances of the rulers of these countries, this grim fact is not officially revealed. All the Arab countries except Syria are secretly encouraging Israel and the USA not only to attack and destroy the Iranian nuclear facilities, but also to topple the mullahs’ regime.

Options for containing and defeating the axis of evil (Iran, Syria, Hezbollah, Hamas, Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine-General Command (PFPL-GC), and Al Qaeda) are very limited and unfortunately all are bloody and with a very high price, but the more time Iran is given, the higher the price will be. Accordingly, the sooner the better, because history, logic and reality tell us that the confrontation is inevitable.

Either the USA and Europe perform the military job and destroy Iran's nuclear facilities before Ahmadinejad puts his hand on the atomic bomb, which he definitely will use to fulfill his expansionist dream of the Persian empire, or these countries MUST give Israel the Okay to finish this dirty task.  

Israel's Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu is going to visit to the United States this week; he will be demanding that President Obama release previously-promised bunker-busting bombs, the Times of London reported Sunday.  The United States has diverted 387 bombs to an island in the Indian Ocean following the latest diplomatic clash between Israel and the United States over the proposed Ramat Shlomo housing project in Jerusalem, according to several news sources.   

Middle East analysts believe that President Obama is holding on to the option that the United States, and not Israel, would attack Iran if it obtains nuclear capability. Scotland’s Sunday Herald last week quoted Dan Plesch, director of the Centre for International Studies and Diplomacy at the University of London as saying, “They [the United States] are gearing up totally for the destruction of Iran. U.S. bombers are ready today to destroy 10,000 targets in Iran in a few hours.”  

Israel, according to its media, needs badly these powerful bombs to attack Iran’s nuclear facilities, which are buried deep underground. Israel needs these bombs also to deal with Hezbollah's underground missile caches and launchers in any coming war. Meanwhile, the Iranian Fars news agency has quoted Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin that the Bushehr nuclear facility will be online by the summer.  

The time has come to make the Syrian regime, the mullahs of Iran, and all their proxy terrorist and fundamentalist organizations, especially Hezbollah and Hamas, understand very well and without any doubt that there will be awful prices and severe consequences for any criminal acts they commit, among of which is the change of the Syrian and Iranian regimes by force as was the situation with Iraq's dictator, Saddam Hussein.

Had the Free World and the Arab countries adopted and implemented courageous, straightforward and firm stances in their dealings with Iran, Syria, Hamas, Hezbollah and Al-Qaeda, including the use of strategic military force, the whole world would have been in a much better position of peace, and thousands of lives would have been spared and trillions of dollars saved, but as the saying goes: "wailing and shedding tears at the tomb does not bring the dead to life". It is time for them all to learn from their mistakes and act accordingly.

As the world already has a Hitler in Ahmadinejad, perhaps:... does the Free World want to have a nuclear holocaust or not?
