The White House is still ardently seeking a nuclear deal that will enrich the men murdering women in the streets.
Where are all the US feminist protesters who should be supporting their sisters in Iran?
The Iranian theocracy seems consumed by their desire to destroy Israel and a nuclear weapon is the only means by which they can attempt such a mission.
The fact that Israel may well beat them to the draw does not seem to phase them in the least - in spite of the fact that hundreds of thousands of Iranians would be incinerated.
The Obama/Biden policy of ignoring the intent of the religious fanatics ruling Iran is simply ushering the people of that country towards a nuclear Holocaust.
Fyi to all the “brave” feminists in America. Wearing a pussy hat on your head in a country with zero threat of reprisal is not bravery. Watch the women in Iran to learn what bravery in feminism is.
Where are all the libs on this one? It is hard to imagine a more spineless and brainless response, but I am sure the Biden administration is working on it and will implement it after getting the Taliban squared away.
After all "great successes" that we have achieved in Middle East in last 30 years. Could we please stay out of this one? Don't we have enough problems at home?
Iran became mess after CIA together with Brits overthrow democratically elected government in 1953.
US involment in that part of the world have been anything but success.
And if someone says, but women rights, great what shall we do with our good "allies" called Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Qatar and other beacons of democracy and human rights in middle east that we supported trough the years. And every time we sponsored regime change, in the end replacement regime was worse than previous regime.
I wish people of Iran all the luck in the world, but that is their fight, not ours. If history thought us anything, is that we (US) cannot bring democracy and change to that part of the world.
And please for the love of god, no more money for regime changes in middle east or nation building, in Afghanistan and Iraq we spent trillions with nothing to show.
Women's rights have never been considered Human rights by the "Woke" Left. The women who demonize Israel - the world's ONLY Jewish state - should have to answer the question: would you rather be a female citizen of Israel or a female citizen of Iran? Or Saudi Arabia? Or Pakistan?
There is NO Islamic state or Muslim majority state that treats women as well as the ONE Jewish state in the world. Not ONE.
In fact, many Islamic states treat women as little more than farm animals.
But women are not human to the "Woke" Left so they proudly wear hijab in solidarity with the men who murdered a 22 year old woman in Iran for showing her hair.
For decades, the Democrat establishment has thought it can do business in a rational and reasonable way with Iran.
To paraphrase Orwell: some ideas are so stupid that only an intellectual can believe them.
Wow! Did you hear the full-throated, universal statements of condemnation of Iran's brutal crackdown on women from almost every feminist organization of every stripe in this country and throughout the world? I didn't. Neither did anyone else.
Dangerous. "Americans have never been so wrong" sums it all up. This government is sending the world to hell in a handbasket in all possible fronts.
Conservatives always viewed the JCPOA as a farce. It made no sense to guarantee a path to a nuclear weapon for extremists, to leave out ballistic missile development, and to make inspections so difficult for the IAEA. Only hard core democrats lauded the deal, and then only to preserve the appearance of Obama as a peacemaker. Truth be told, Obama was guaranteeing a nuclear weapon for Iran because he wanted to reduce security for Israel, get the U.S. out of the Middle East, and turn our back on a long-time ally. Trump was mocked for calling the JCPOA the "worst deal ever", but again, he was right. We should not end sanctions, send billions in cash to these extremists, and allow Iran to trade with the international community. Unless, of course, they dismantle their nuclear program and sell their nuclear materials to the west getting them totally and forever out of the business of producing nuclear weapons. And let women show their hair in public.
Remember when Trump blew up Soleimani and Democrats were outraged? I do.
They were scared we would go to war with a third world country. Oh no. Fast forward to Joe Biden blowing up the pipeline that represents the main source of income for an insane person with 6500 nukes and Democrats cheer. These morons are going to get us all killed.
Where are the Liberal women screaming hands off our bodies for the Iranian women who are treated as property and simple vessels to reproduce? Why is it Liberals will gladly stiffle any voices from those who think differently? Yet they are unwilling to help others around the world to get the same freedoms.
Brandon much like Odumbo and Kerry are so desperate for another phony deal Iran knows they are like drug addicts needing a fix. The shear stupidity of trusting Iran borders on narcissistic self destructive behavior.
It's sad, as the Abraham Accords were a great opportunity to expand the unity of the region and would help to isolate and confront the evil of Iran.
But Liberals will always battle for freedom where they are protected. Never where they might actually be in danger. It's a deep shame that Brandon and the Hole in the Wall Gang of fools just turn a blind eye. But what else would you expect from Liberals?
We have more important problems here in the US: we're all racists, some large body of right wing supremacists who nobody seems to be able to find are about to shut down democracy, and nobody knows what kind of underwear they should have on. With all of that going on, we just can't afford to generously pay attention to international concerns in the manner we have since WWII (which attention gave rise to the most outrageously positive benefits to humankind since the Cambrian Explosion). More seriously, Iran's nuclear ambitions, fulfilled or not, will pale as a concern next to the outcomes of the current combo platter of de-globalization and the famines soon to result from pro-scarcity green-energy idiocracy. Whatever underwear you settle on, stock up.
Obama didn’t support the Green Movement in 2009, so it is not surprising that Biden doesn’t support the Hijab Rebellion in 2022. The Democrats, the American fascist Left, is aligned with the Iranian fascist conservative right. Both regimes oppose rationality and individual autonomy and freedom.
>>But if Americans no longer have the self-confidence to engage in such military action<<
Another war? Isn't the proxy war we're already fighting with Russia in Ukraine enough?
Another MIDEAST war? Like the U.S. hasn't fought enough unsuccessful Mideast wars in the last 50 years?
Mr. Gerecht, a former CIA agent, presumably knows a lot about the "hearts and minds" strategy! Too bad he's using Bari Weiss's Substack to deploy it.
Barack Obama said in one of his books he blames the United States (duh he’s a Democrat) for the situation in Iran (and the situation everywhere pretty much).
As such his foreign policy was based on punishing the United States and Israel. He’s still basically President. People are gross and childish and they want free healthcare so they voted for Democrats and now we are here.
