God Rest Ye, Merry Gentlemen - Jars of Clay - listen now

Monday, November 21, 2005


Picture it, a nice spring day in San Francisco, people going about business as usual. Eating lunch outside and enjoying the views. Suddenly a brilliant flash of light momentarily stuns people. Cars come to a halt. Lights go out. Computers die. Cell phones quit working. Similar flashes illuminated several other areas of the western United States. All along the pacific coast no technology is working. Los Angeles, Las Vegas, and Seattle are silent and dark.

The electromagnetic pulse was 100% effective. A third of the United States now has the technological level of the 19th century, courtesy of the Islamic Republic of Iran's nuclear weapons program. And it isn't just America, Israel and Iraq have been hit as well, along with Italy and the United Kingdom. The world is at the mercy of the Ayahtollahs in Tehran.

A far-fetched scenario? Hardly. They're already practicing.

Gingrich pointed with alarm at a report first published in G2 Bulletin that Iran had tested the firing of ballistic missiles from a merchant ship in which warheads were detonated in midair over the Caspian Sea rather than at a land or sea target. National security experts and scientists commissioned by Congress to study the threat of electromagnetic pulse attacks on the U.S. concluded that Iran was preparing for just such a scenario. So does Gingrich.

Newt Gingrich calls Iran the greatest threat since the Nazi regime in the 1930s.

Gingrich concluded that:

  • Iran is the most dangerous regime in the world and the "single most urgent threat to American national security."
  • The threat can only be understood in the context of "The Long War Against the Irreconcilable Wing of Islam, which is a worldwide war in which the United states and its allies are unavoidably engaged, and in which the U.S. has active campaigns in Iraq and Afghanistan."
  • The U.S. cannot be held hostage or rendered impotent by delays of international bureaucracies in dealing with the threat posed by Iran.
  • One key to preventing or degrading the Iranian nuclear threat is persuading Russia to stop helping Tehran.
  • The U.S. has no option but to seek regime change in Iran.
What are we waiting for? We know we'll have to deal with the Iranian Islamofascists sooner or later. If we do it sooner it can be on our terms. I definitely prefer that scenario.

This demonstrates the importance of success in Iraq. We need to stay there... and succeed. Failure allows for Iranian influence in that country. Success (and staying there) allows for the US to keep an eye on these Iranian nuts..
