Well, I guess y’all can surmise from the topic of this missive the identity of this week’s recipient of our Old School Patriot “Stuck on Stupid Saturday” recognition. Yes, our first of the new year, 2020, “Stuck on Stupid Saturday (SOSS)” award goes to the Ayatollah Khamenei, supreme leader of the Islamic Republic of Iran, which is hardly a Republic as we would define such. Let us not be fooled, Iran is an Islamist dictatorship. It is also the world’s number one sponsor of Islamic terrorism.
This is where our story begins, Iran has been at war with the United States since it attacked our Embassy there in 1979 as part of the Islamic revolution. Let us never forget that it was the Iranian backed Hezbollah terrorists who bombed the US Marine barracks in Beirut, killing over 240 Marines and Sailors.
Iranian General Qasem Suleimani was head of the Iranian Quds Force, a designated terrorist organization. Therefore, he was a terrorist leader, no different from Osama bin Laden or Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. Furthermore, through the efforts of Suleimani, Iran was the producer and supplier of the lethal EFP (explosive force penetrator) IEDs (improvised explosive device) which was responsible for 18-20% of the deaths and wounding of our men and women in Iraq.
The reason we are recognizing Khamenei for our SOSS award? Simple, he was stupid enough to not realize that neither Jimmy Carter nor Barack Obama is sitting in the Oval Office in Washington, DC.
For good reason, the Iranian leadership tends to believe that since Jimmy Carter allowed them to attack our Embassy and take hostages, for over a year, they can get away with that again. I guess they failed to learn from history that it was Ronald Reagan who followed the weak and feckless Carter. And, it was Ronald Reagan who directed Operation Praying Mantis in April 1988 which ended with the sinking of several Iranian naval vessels and the destruction of two oil platforms.
No, this is not Barack Obama who allowed our Embassy in Libya to be attacked, did nothing, and then lied about the whole incident. Four Americans lost their lives in Benghazi, but then again, “what difference, at this point, does it make?” Well, Hillary Clinton ain’t sitting in the White House either. No, Ayatollah, and Hasan Rouhani, you are not going to be getting planeloads of palletized laundered cash, billions of such. No, the economic sanctions are not going to be lifted. You found out the hard way that if you sponsor an attack that kills Americans, your proxy little gang of terrorists will get killed, regardless of where they are.
As well, Ayatollah, you now know that your terrorist ring leaders will get schwacked (an official military term), any time, any place. For you, sir, to refer to the killing of the head of a terrorist organization, Quds Force, as a heinous act of terrorism . . . well, we are all still laughing our butts off at that insidious assertion, as if it was going to garner attention and sympathy.
This is not the America of Carter and Obama. This is the America that is reflective of the song by Toby Keith, “Courtesy of the Red, White, and Blue.”
Justice will be served and the battle will rage
This big dog will fight when you rattle his cage
And you’ll be sorry that you messed with
The U.S. of A.
‘Cause we’ll put a boot in your ass
It’s the American way
Now, an honorary mention for “Stuck on Stupid Saturday” are all of these members of the Party of the Jackass who are critical of the killing of General Suleimani. I suppose they prefer to take us back to the failed, appeasing, acquiescing, and weak policies of Obama and Carter. No, Nancy Pelosi, you do not need to be briefed, you continue to focus on impeaching President Trump, who you call a threat to our national security . . . not Suleimani. To all of these Democrat (socialist) presidential candidates, forget about being president. If y’all are so scared of Iran, then you cannot lead our great nation.
As Alexander the Great stated, “I would not fear an army of lions if led by sheep, but I would fear an army of sheep if led by a lion.” America was led by sheep who gave Iran billions of dollars to support the promulgation of Islamic terrorism . . . Never again.
There will be no war with Iran. Iran may seek to authorize more terrorist attacks, and if they do, refer to the lyrics by Toby Keith. The Trump administration is not seeking to occupy Iran, but the objective will be to destroy the Iranian capability to enact any acts of terrorism . . . see Operation Praying Mantis.
So everyone take a chill pill and stop with the hysterics. This has been a long time coming, and Iran was deserving of this . . . especially General Suleimani. No one gets to plan, or actually kill Americans, without and retribution, that is the Trump Doctrine. Iran stupidly believed that since President Trump did not respond to the drone shooting that he was weak, reticent, and recalcitrant. Dumb assumption.
When you kill an American, and attack sovereign American territory, which is what an Embassy is, then refer to the Toby Keith lyrics.
Congratulations, Ayatollah Khamenei, on being our first recipient of the “Stuck on Stupid Saturday” recognition for 2020. If you want to escalate and respond to the killing of General Suleimani, and the Iranian Paramilitary Force commander in Iraq . . . refer to the Toby Keith lyrics. Our men and women are just itching to kick yer arse as payback for those EFP IEDs.
As for delusional leftists: y’all keep digging that hole, there is no way we will allow anyone of you chuckleheads to be president.
Hey, Ayatollah, Happy New Year, Courtesy of the Red, White, and Blue!
