The world communist press has been pushing an American/Iranian “rapprochement” for some time now.
Navid Shomali, secretary of Iran’s communist Tudeh Party’s international department, recently wrote;
The Tudeh Party of Iran supports any lowering of tension between the U.S. and Iran. It has called for years for all disputes to be resolved by negotiation in accordance with international law.
Savvy commentators like Washington DC based Michael Ledeen have been warning of President Obama’s plans for nothing less than a full fledged US/Iran alliance.
Now comes further indication of the President’s intentions, from one of the Communist Party USA‘s best friends in Congress, Washington State Rep. Jim McDermott. Long tied to Washington Communist Party identities such as Pat Stell, and the late Will Parry, McDermott is a very reliable guide to communist thinking, and strategy.
I’ve always said that if you want to know what long time Communist Party “friend” Barack Obama will do tomorrow – read the communist press today.
In a recent speech on the floor of Congress, published in full, in the Communist Party’s Peoples World, Rep. McDermott lays out the communist agenda, and selling points towards a US/Iranian detente, and eventual formal alliance.
I rise this morning on what could be the eve of a nuclear deal with the Islamic Republic of Iran, as U.S., European, and Iranian negotiators head back to Vienna for a final round of talks.
With so much of the region in turmoil right now, it seems hard to imagine that we could be on the verge of arguably the most important diplomatic achievement in the Middle East in recent U.S. history.
The leadership of President Obama, the tenacity of the U.S. negotiators, and the sincerity of President Rouhani and his team have set the stage for a landmark agreement that would turn the page on decades of distrust, dissension and cynicism.
Here is what a nuclear deal would mean:
* A profound reduction in the decades-long tension between Iran, the U.S. and our allies that had set us on a path to war.
* A contained Iranian nuclear program with verifiable internationally-accepted limits.
* Meaningful sanctions relief that bolsters Iran’s flagging economy and allows U.S. businesses access to a potentially vibrant market.
* An opening for a broader understanding between the U.S. and Iran, as well as an opportunity to court Iran as an ally in the fight against ISIS.
Here is the bait, which will be used to lure the American public onto a viciously barbed hook.
Michael Ledeen maintains that Obama has wanted an alliance with Iran since the beginning of his first term of office. Obama would know that it would take something pretty dramatic to get the American public to swallow such a repugnant policy reversal.
To accept Iran, the public would have to be conditioned to fear something even worse.
It is known that Obama knew about ISIS for months, and did nothing, until they gathered so much strength and committed so many atrocities, that he could no longer ignore them.
Now with horrific mass killings and brutal filmed beheadings, much of the American public believes that a ragtag army of Islamist extremists is public enemy number one.
