My latest in PJ Media:
Why did Iran decide that now was the time to mount an audacious operation to kidnap Masih Alinejad, an Iranian dissident, in New York City and take her back to the Islamic Republic, where she would have faced imprisonment, torture, and possibly even judicial murder? The answer is clear, and it is sitting in the White House catching up on Matlock reruns until the next time he is needed to answer a few scripted softball questions from a sycophantic media. Hassan Danaeifar, the Islamic Republic of Iran’s former ambassador to Iraq, recently made this clear as he crowed about Biden’s weakness and how it enabled the enemies of the beacon of the free world.
Danaeifar said, with admirable understatement, “I believe that that current president is not a two-term president.” Really going out on a limb there, eh, Hassan? It would be the surprise of the century if the dementia-ridden puppet in the White House turned out to be a two-term president. Given his age and mental state, it’s highly unlikely that he will serve out his first term. But the cackling nonentity who will follow him into the Oval Office will almost certainly be even worse.
Danaeifar continued by noting more of the obvious. Biden, he said, “is a president who cannot make decisions.” Apparently he doesn’t have to, since someone else is doing that for him, although the identity of the decision-maker is not yet definitively established. “The Americans,” Danaeifar noted, “have been unable to make a decision with regard to Syria. They have made half decisions and failed to accomplish their plans — not only in Iraq, with regard to ISIS, but also in Syria, and in Lebanon. When we examine the region, we see that on various issues, the Americans have taken a passive position. This passive position spells the imminent collapse of America. You can rest assured. You and I have witnessed the fall of the Shah and that of the USSR, and we shall witness the fall of America.”
If that turns out to be anything close to true, it will be courtesy of those who are aggravating divisions in American society for their own advantage. Danaeifar, halfway across the world in Tehran, saw those divisions as an opportunity: “American society has encountered serious problems. There is serious polarization, which manifested itself, especially with the election of President Trump. The attack on the Congress is not insignificant.”
That’s right, it wasn’t, but probably not in the way Danaeifar thinks.
There is more. Read the rest here.
