The extreme left has taken a position I don’t agree with. In that it has voiced opposition on Trump’s public celebration of it. Believing it gives the Iranian regime to crack down on protesters, pointing to the U.S instigation and meddling in their sovereign country’s internal affairs.

My position is the regime will make that claim, with or without Trump applauding the protest. IMO, it’s better the protesters hear support from the world’s largest megaphone than not to hear that support.

Unfortunately the only difference in the protest of 2009, is the middle class took to the streets to oppose civil rights violations, while today’s protestors are working class dissenting over Iran’s unequal economy.

Anti-government leaders of this protest are still unable to unite into an organized cohesive front to keep public pressure for protest, even with the current mass discontent.

Iran’s elite are still united and ready for any excuse for a severe crackdown on dissenters, (i.e, foreign meddling in politics). The elites lopsided ability and capacity to institute a severe crackdown, is formidable in the face of any protest movement is not united with common leaders. Notable leaders with a following to advance a more democratic ideology.

Iran’s Government is maintaining legitimacy and enough efficiency to stifle the kind of dissent necessary to foment a real revolution.

Unless the corruption and mis-management of government reaches the level that fractures the solidarity of the elites...i.e., one faction becoming excessively greedy, or disloyal, there’s little hope dissenting leaders to unite for a common cause.

Iranians don’t have guns. They can’t storm the well entrenched Revolutionary Guard and take theirs. They are without means to foment a real revolution. At this juncture it must come from a fractured elite. Not likely to happen considering greed and privilege has solidly united the religious & government elites.

Iranians don’t have guns.

That alone tells us why our forefathers wrote the Second Amendment.

A citizens right to keep and bear arms to protect freedom, is only a Right. It does not ensure freedom.

Even if Iranians did have guns, their government is Theocratic ruled. They don’t have protective free speech, or protections against government seizure. Dissenters speaking out about civil/human rights violations or economic inequality are imprisoned with no legal recourse.

‘A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.’

The 2nd Amendment gives Americans the right to firearms to protect freedom. It was written at a time when firearms were exceedingly primitive compared today weapons. The sub machine guns, machine guns, assault weapons, etc. were created and introduced more than 100 years after our Constitution was written.

None of these high powered weapons (capable of firing 45 rounds per minute & many, many more when modified) compare to the sophisticated weapons of warfare belonging to our military. Weapons that include sonic and ultra sonic devices that cause such intense headache and inner ear pain, they can disarm more than a crowd of 1,000 armed people in less than 3 minutes. Any attempt to overthrow our government using high powered automatic weapons would be a colossal failure & a complete waste of human life.

So...irrespective of the ‘freedom’ arguments gun enthusiast use to support production and sales for gun manufacturers, what assault weapons really do, is kill hundreds of Americans every year.
No deer hunter needs an AK-15 to hunt and kill deer.

Gangs and criminals need AK-15’s to fight their turf wars, protect their drug trade & kill unsuspecting masses of innocent people.

Opposing common sense gun legislation that works to keep weapons specifically designed to kill large numbers in less than a minute, assures these weapons will find their way into the hands of mass murderers, and criminal gangs.

The 2nd Amendment only endows our people with the RIGHT to protect our freedom. It does not protect our freedom. That protection is found in our Constitution’s 1st & 4th Amendments.

It is the fourth Amendment that prevents local law enforcement from illegally seizing citizens firearms that protect themselves from criminal abuse.

It is the 1st Amendment that protects the free speech of people and America’s journalist to speak truth to power.

The Ten Commandments were written before our Constitution. Should we disregard it because of time?

I find it somewhat baffling that you equate man’s laws that are ever changing since mankind made the first law, with God’s Laws that we are taught never changing.

So let's go through the elements. Did Obama owe an allegiance to the United States? Yes. Are Hezbollah and Iran enemies of the USA? Yes. Did Obama adhere to them? Yes. Did Obama give them aid and comfort? Yes.

Worse - Obama deliberately made Iran and Hezbollah stronger.

The United Nations Non-Proliferation of Nuclears Treaty represents “the only binding commitment in a multilateral treaty to the goal of disarmament by the nuclear-weapon States’. Nation’s began agreeing to and signing the Treaty in 1968. It became an enforceable Treaty in 1970.

In May 1995, the Treaty was extended indefinitely. A total of 191 States have joined the Treaty, including the five nuclear-weapon States. More countries have ratified the ‘NPT’ than any other arms limitation and disarmament agreement, proof of the Treaty’s success and significance, in stopping the proliferation of nuclear arms.

Iran began it’s nuclear armament build up more than three decades ago. The sanctions imposed by the U.S. and allies did not deter Iran’s nuclear weapons build up. For decades, nothing impeded the Iranians manufacturing and stock piling nuclear centrifuges. Until Secretary of State Hillary Clinton developed and negotiated and implemented sanctions on Iran. Specifically imposing banking sanctions that froze Iranian money and assets abroad.

After living through the W.Bush lie of Iraq stockpiling WMD’s, to gain the support of the American people to invade Iraq. there was no possible way the American public would bite on another lie of Iran amassing WMD’s as a pretext for our miltary to invade it.

In forcing Iran to the negotiation table, Iran (that claims its nuclear ambitions are for energy only) was made to allow the U.S. and our allies, to routinely monitor and inspect its nuclear facilities. The carrot that led Iran to the table was the commitment of the U. S. and our allies to gradually lift sanctions that ties up Iranian money and assets, as Iran complies with the Agreement that imposes routine monitoring and inspections of its nuclear facilities.

Iran and Hezbollah are enemies of the U.S. Iran is also a sovereign nation. Nobody doubts the Iranian government supports Hezbollah and other terrorist groups in the ME. Terrorist groups with cells within other ME sovereign countries as well.

To state that Obama ‘adhered to’, ‘aided and comforted’ the Iranian governments support of terrorist groups, is an insanely assinine and completely foolish accusation. A statement that not even Trump, as unstable and reactionary as he may be, would not make. Or at least hasn’t yet.

I can’t figure out why the Saudi kingdom & the U.S. would see poor ‘ole Quaddafi a threat. Oh wait! I remember now, Something about Qaddafi leading a strong coalition alliance with Egypt, Africa & ME leaders to change the currency of oil trade from the petrodollar to gold.

How could that possibly be a concern when ME countries supply 42% of our U.S. nation’s oil needs?

I forgot to mention both Africa and Russia have more gold deposits underground, with Africa having the lion’s share of active gold mines in the world. Indonesia an Australia are dwarfed in comparison, in both underground reserves and active mining operations.

“Where justice is denied, where poverty is enforced, where ignorance prevails, and where any one class is made to feel that society is an organized conspiracy to oppress, rob and degrade them, neither persons nor property will be safe.”
~ Frederick Douglass

If President Truman was alive I could ask him why he ordered the nuking Japan, when his military advisers told him Japan would surrender without using it, only it would cost more American lives. My question wouldn’t change history, would it? Truman made the decision because he believed it was in the best interest of our nation not to sacrifice more American lives. He had access to the means to end it, and he used that means.

Clark, I wouldn’t know anymore than I know today if I put your question to Obama’s & Clinton. I can look at the known circumstances of what happened preceding Quaddafi s death. I can form an opinion that Quaddafi had to go, for the same reasons Trump made his first foreign trip to Saudi Arabia & danced before it’s king. Specifically, to protect the short & long term U.S. economic interest of our nation’s foreign oil supply, without sacrifice of more American lives.

Every decision any Administration makes has both a short and long term effect on domestic & international policies, of all the other nations in the world.

When our nation’s top intelligence confirms Russia interfered with our nation’s election process to influence the results of an election, it’s not a conspiracy theory. Hard proof exists that confirms this revelation. When a President or any national leader or Party engages in spreading conspiracy theories, they are compromising the safety and security of Americans and their property. Without respect to their reasons, those engaging in spreading conspiracy theories. are leading our nation in the wrong direction. They are making our nation and it’s people less safe and secure.

The Partisanship prevalent in today’s government must end if our nation is to survive. Our Congress must return to regular order, putting the safety and security of our nation and it’s people before political ambition.

This nation’s President must stop attacking our fourth estate as ‘fake news’. He must end using reductive communication to feed conspiracy theories, whether he believes them or not. He must stop singling out any one class of people in our nation to oppress, whether that is oppression from condemnation of their religion or nationality.

Above all, we must understand that our nation is but one of hundreds in the world. We have enemies both inside and outside of our borders. Their tactics and strategies are different, but not necessarily their goals. Every one of them benefit from Americans believing they are less safe and secure. Every one of them benefit from the deep political divisions now prevalent in our political arena.

Whether the celebration is public or private, one happens every time a U.S. adversarial government target is taken out.

Trump’s CIA Director said last week his agency does their damnest to uncover foreign governments’ secrets. We all know our nation has foreign enemies, and those enemies have the potential to become targets for deposing and sometimes assassination. That’s why every CIA Director instructs their agents to do their damnest to capture our adversaries secrets.
