Jeb Bush Goes After Iran

|| By FITSNEWS || Having successfully “Cold Warmongered” against Russian president Vladimir Putin last month, former Florida governor Jeb Bush is now turning his attention to the Middle East.

Wait … a Bush focusing on the Middle East?

We know … what could possibly go wrong?

Anyway, this particular Bush is focusing his ire on Iranian president Hassan Rouhani … by way of U.S. president Barack Obama.

“Despite Obama Administration hopes that President Rouhani would usher in an era of moderation and tolerance, his tenure has been marked by an increase in human rights abuses and repression,” Bush wrote in an opinion piece for establishment conservative website Townhall.

But Bush’s real focus is Iran’s nuclear program – which has been the focus of intense U.S. scaremongering.  Albeit less-than-intense negotiating, apparently.

“Repeated concessions and desperate accommodation suggest the Obama Administration will do anything to secure a deal,” Bush wrote.  “And with America playing such a weak hand, why shouldn’t the Supreme Leader squeeze President Obama for more concessions?”

Iran is derided by Bush as a nuclear menace and “the world’s most active state sponsor of terrorism.”  Of course his brother in arms, “Republican” U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham – has suggested greater coordination with the Islamic nation in the hopes of checking the aggression of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS).

You know … these guys.


He says he’s going to eliminate both threats.

“America under our next President will have to deal comprehensively with the threats posed by Iran,” he wrote.  “It must seek to rally the region and the world to pressure Iran to change its behavior.  It must demand conclusive proof Iran has not just delayed, but given up its nuclear weapons ambitions.  It must develop a strategy not just to defeat (ISIS), but also to combat Iran’s malign activities in Iraq and Syria.  It must impose meaningful consequences on Iran for its support of terrorism and its abhorrent treatment of its own citizens.  It must deny Iran the ability to produce longer-range ballistic missiles that will threaten America and its allies.”

And by our “allies,” Bush of course means Israel … a country which barks orders at America even though its military is heavily subsidized by the U.S. taxpayer.

Israel is what all this chest-puffery is about … it’s what it’s always been about.

Look, Bush obviously isn’t going to lose any “Republican” votes championing his love for the “chosen.”  Nor is he going to lose any “Republican” votes pushing an interventionist foreign policy in the Middle East.  But the sad reality is his brother’s costly intervention – and the costly extension of the “War on Terror” under Obama – have actually made our nation less safe.

And far less prosperous.

And while we’re glad Bush has the outlines of a plan for the Middle East, continuing to spend larger sums of money we don’t have strikes us as a recipe for disaster.

well that ain’t gonna happen Jeb, old vlad is going to do all he can to keep things stirred up in the middle east, its the only way he can make the price of oil go up.

Jeb is the Libertarians’ candidate. Tried that, too much. It did not work. He’s a non-starter. Even he could beat Hillary. But we need MUCH better than just beating the Democrats. We need a president who will face the media and the hate-squads of the left, and do the will of the people. It is a big job. We need a big person, not a groveler or a Libertarian who agrees with half of the damage Obama and the Democrat Party has inflicted upon us. We’re at a crisis point. We have no room to get it wrong this time.

no.. they just lay there, while Republicans try.

the simple fact is no republican running for POTUS can win without winning Ohio, Virginia an Florida in the general election, Jeb is only republican running that stands a chance of doing that. So any vote not for Jeb in the primaries is a vote for Hillary.

Why would Jeb have a better chance in Ohio or Virginia than any other GOP candidate? Kasich certainly would have a better chance to take Ohio. Polls show Rubio is favored over Bush by Floridians. He would have at least as good a chance to take FL as Jeb.

look at rubio vs clinton in florida, democrats start out with more electoral votes than republicans so the republican has to take all three of these swing states in the general.

Crooner July 2, 2015 at 1:11 pm

US Scaremongering is the only path to the White House for the Republicans. Just watch Fox News. The strategy is to whip up fear of: ISIL, Putin, Iran, etc., and offer up our troops on the ground in foreign countries to “protect us here at home.” Without fear there is no hope for these bozos.
What makes Crooner afraid, very afraid, is that “The Donald” is being taken seriously by the Republican primary voter.

Sadly, with how ridiculous a Trump presidency sounds, it is an improvement over people like Sarah Palin being taken seriously.

A sad truth for the republican party, his last name, and his big mouth. I think that comment just elected Hillary. Way to go numbnut.

Jeb better leave my home country alone!

Rocky July 2, 2015 at 1:59 pm

Pretty easy to talk tough with Iran knowing you’ll inherit the already completed nuclear deal and you can then pivot and ignore everything you said in the campaign. Remember, our long term play here is to replace Israel with Iran as the US strategic ally in the region. Don’t forget boys and girls, Israel don’t fight ISIS, Iran does. And they gots better lookin’ women.

TroubleBaby July 2, 2015 at 4:05 pm

Initially it was Bush the 1st and a thousand points of light, then it was Bush the Dumber & My Pet Goat. Now what? Bush the Dumbest and never ending war in the Middle East?

Can’t “we” catch just one break? Must Satan continually stomp our faces with his boot?

euwe max July 2, 2015 at 8:36 pm

War is a Republican sacrament.

TontoBubbaGoldstein July 3, 2015 at 7:32 am

…never ending war in the Middle East?

The Bush family is in the oil business as well as politics.

Never ending wars in the Mideast keep oil prices high.

Soft Sigh from Hell July 2, 2015 at 10:44 pm

The Bushes are not just in thrall to Israel, they are also in love with Saudi Arabia that also hates Iran.
