Enough is enough. Americans are fired up and will demand action from Obama after this incident. A thuggish regime which badly miscalculated when it stole an election outright and when it spent months futilely trying to crush protest has now made a big miscalulation in dealing America if Obama has an ounce of courage.
A few weeks ago a group of Revoutionary Guards wandered into Iran
and were released a day or to later. BY contrast the Khamenei regime
has held 3 American hikers who strayed accross the border for months.
Now it has dared to charges the three hostages--and that is what they
undoubtably are--with espionage charges. The regime KNOWS those
charges to be false just as it KNOWS so many of the charges it has made
against innocents within the country are outright lies.
If Khamenei thinks Iranians will rally around him if he precipitates a war via aggression of this sort. They do not want US ground troops surely except possiblyl for a few special forces to arm and train the people. Let the
Iranian people handle the regime on the ground while US forces
"neutralizes" the IRCG bases and HQ from the air.
Kicking around unarmed opponents is one thing, but it this
two-bit dicatator thinks he can such strong arm attacks against the USA
is something else again. It's clear no regime can safely allow
tourists, businessmen, trade missions, journalists or diplomats inside
a country like this with a regime that doesn't follow the rules of
nations just as it stomps on its own people. This is an act of
Like most Americans I am ticked off. Though I've been a strong Omama supporter, if he tolerates such aggression without taking strong countersteps (and I don't mean falling to his knees and begging the Supreme Murderer to let them go, he will rightly be seen as weak. This crisis will hurt him as badly as the Bay of Pigs hurt JFK in that case.
Khamenei regime needs an ultimatum--let 'em go now or else. Whatever
the USA does, all nuclear talks must end immediately and full sanctions
introduced as a conseqence. At an absolute minimum no more nuclear
talks until all US citizens are freed. Even then, sanctions should
remain in place until talks are resumed and even then until it is clear
the regime isn't simply playing games. Personally I'd like to see
sanctions remain until the regime collapses.
