Stop Iran? Sign Petition and Get US and Israel Flag Pin?

We have no control over the banner ads that run at this site. They are just generated I assume by some algorithm based on the content of the site. So I guess since our site is labeled conservative some program assumed our readers would be interested in “stopping” Iran.

So when I surfed to CHT today, the ad that greated me was as the title above, without the question marks of course. I couldn’t resist commenting. Isn’t that ad a microcosm of what is wrong with our foreign policy? It is assumed that I am supposed to want to “stop” Iran because I have some particular affinity for Israel. Ugh! There is no need for further comment. The commentary writes itself.

About Filmer

Filmer is the Conservative Times username for a paleoconservative political activist. For those of you who are unfamiliar with him, Sir. Robert Filmer (1588 - 1653) is a largely forgotten English political theorist who deserves more attention from conservative scholars. He was a (the?) main contemporary opponent to Locke and his social contract theory. Possibly as an artifact of Kirk, modern conservatives have largely stopped tracing conservative thought at Burke. This is unfortunate. A potential outcome of this is that you are just as likely to hear "conservatives" spouting Lockean silliness as you are liberals. Hopefully a revival of conservative interest in Filmer will be awakened by the increased interest in paleoconservatism.

    Indeed it is. Iran’s threat to America is ignored. Our foreign policy should be placed on our concerns.
    We have never gone to war for Israel, and I think that people doing these stunts are either retarded or Iranian agents.

    Iran is *no threat* to America. A better name for Iran is Persia. There’s so much history there. You simply cannot attack a country like Persia.

    People who chant death to America, believe that a reign of fire will bring the eschaton, and who are developing nukes are a threat.
    “You simply cannot attack a country like Persia.”
    Tell that to Macedonia, Rome, Byzantium, the Saracens, the Gokturks, the Khazars, the Ghaznavids, the Seljuk Turks, Khwarazmian dynasty, the Mongols, the Russians….. You can conquer them, occupy them, and/or take land from them. Persia is not magical. And the Islamic Regime is, itself, at war with historical Persia. These are Muslim fanatics, who view Persian history and nationalism as heresies.

    They would not chant death had the US not gone into Iraq and Afghanistan and if it did not meddle in their state affairs.

    What has been achieved in Iraq and Afghanistan? Radicals have been inflamed. Shia and Sunni are pitted against one another. Moderates are accused of being American stooges. Immigrants have flooded into the West. All of this was predicted beforehand, so events went as intended.

    “Tell that to Macedonia, Rome, Byzantium, the Saracens, the Gokturks, the Khazars, the Ghaznavids, the Seljuk Turks, Khwarazmian dynasty, the Mongols, the Russians”

    An attack by the US today would be far more devastating. Look at what has happened though even with Egypt’s revolution. Is it worth the price? No!

    Look to Syria: Israel and the US back al-Qaeda. Why? They must want chaos, to destabilise the region (preventing an opponent from arising) and bring forth war (presumably so little Israel can expand and gain influence in neighboring countries, even at the cost of the annihilation of all else). That is *not* what I want.

    One of the primary reasons Americans go along with these wars is any criticism of Israel is seen as “anti-Semitism”…


    It’s wonderful to care about Israel. But I have my own ethnicity that’s being destroyed. I can’t even save my own people. And I do not wish to destroy Persia, among other states, in the process of saving Israel.

    Iran is no threat to the US or Israel and is not even trying to develop nuclear weapons. The US should drop all sanctions against Iran and restore normal diplomatic relations. The same applies to Cuba.
