Why the Hell is the U.S. Giving Condolences to the Butcher of Tehran?


ALPERN AT LARGE - It’s a whole lot easier to not feel sorry for President Joe Biden “being caught in the middle of the Iran/Israel conflict when you realize that Biden (and, in effect, the U.S.) paid for the horrific events of 10/7/2024.

We paid for the Israeli deaths, rapes, maiming, and terror.

We paid for the deaths in Gaza, as Israel finally declared “enough” for 20 years of terrorism from Gaza, which was supposed to be the first portion of a Palestinian nation.

We paid for the deaths in Lebanon and Syria associated with Hezbollah, Syrian President Assad, and their allies.

We paid for the deaths and chaos from the Houthis. 

We also paid for a whole bunch of Iranian civilian deaths under the regime of Iran, which squelches and kills dissent in ways that former Shah of Iran couldn’t possibly have done to law-abiding civilians...and most recently led by the now-late Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi, named “the Butcher of Tehran” by those who he slaughtered and tortured en masse.

So...WHY did the Biden Administration allow upwards of $10 billion in electricity revenue and sanctions waiver in Iran, after former President Trump virtually starved Iran’s terror-promoting regime into non-existence?

So...WHY did Joe Biden choose to do “everything anti-Trump” including reaching out to Iran and destroying America’s recent and newly-achieved energy independence.

So...WHY did Joe Biden allow Russia, Iran, Venezuela, and so many of our enemies and world-troublemakers the ability to thrive on energy revenue? 

And now...WHY did Joe Biden offer condolences to a monster like Ebraham Raisi, with so much torture and blood on his hands that he deserves nothing BUT scorn and derision for leading an Iran we had NO business EVER doing deals with.

The Israelis and Iranians alike are celebrating the death of this disgusting Raisi character, and have with tongue-in-cheek humor promoted a rumor that the helicopter accident which killed Raisi (better than he deserved, to be sure!) was caused by Israeli Mossad agent “Eli Copter”.

Raisi’s death is no cause for condolences, reaching out, or find common ground with our enemies in Iran.

Because Iran, North Korea, and their sponsors in Russia and China are dangers to us all. 

Mr. Biden, you started all this...and perhaps we’ll see in the months and year to come how the American People will finish this foreign “clear and present” danger that is Iran.
