Strain at a gnat and swallow a camel

The title of this post links to a story from British website Telegraph.co.uk. In this story there are serious allegations about former Russian military members helping Iran develop a missile program to launch the nuclear weapons they are also developing.

According to the article:

"The Russians are acting as go-betweens with North Korea as part of a multi-million pound deal they negotiated between Teheran and Pyongyang in 2003. It has enabled Teheran to receive regular clandestine shipments of top secret missile technology, believed to be channelled through Russia. Western intelligence officials believe that the technology will enable Iran to complete development of a missile with a range of 2,200 miles, capable of hitting much of Europe. It is designed to carry a 1.2-ton payload, sufficient for a basic nuclear device."
Over the last 3 years we have seen world in an uproar over the US war in Iraq resulting from Saddam's continuous breach of the cease fire agreement from Desert Storm and world-wide intelligence reports of a continued WMD program. We have seen massive protestors in the US as well as in Europe and other areas in the world. They protest a country that learned from 9/11 that if you wait too long to defend yourself you place your citizens in harms way and do not meet your obligation to protect them.

I am astounded at the things they do not protest. Here is a small list of things these hypocrites overlook:

  • The developing nuclear program in Iran
  • The assistance of Russia in their nuclear program
  • The assistance of Russia and China in the North Korean nuclear program
  • The continuous breach of human rights in China
  • The continuous breach of women's rights throughout the muslim world
  • The reverse ethnic cleansing that is now happening in Kosovo against the christian population
  • The suicide bombings in Israel
  • The insurgency in Iraq and the support it receives from neighboring countries
  • The repeated scandals at the United Nations, the body they want to grant world oversight to
  • China's continued threat of war against the sovereign nation of Taiwan
There is so much danger, terrorism and corruption going on in China, Russia, Europe the Arab world and South America yet world criticism and protests continue to focus on the US. Looking at all the things like Russia helping Iran develop a nuclear program that happen before our eyes and imagine the things we don't know about. The fact is the US is the ONLY check and balance on the most dangerous elements in the world, yet how many in the US and abroad want to see the US weakened economically and militarily. Is it out of jealousy or do they truly want these dangerous countries to control the world. It is truly twisted when the US continues to be protested and scrutinized for every action while the true thugs of the world get a free pass again and again. The whole world seems to chronically strain at a gnat yet have no problem swallowing a camel.
