What would an Ayatollah Khamenei White House look like?

Ayatollah-Ali-Khamenei
 Have you ever wondered what would happen if Iran’s Ayatollah Khamenei were somehow elected President of the United States? What would his policies be? I think he would probably do the following

1) Distance America from Israel. Khamenei would criticize Israel every chance he got. He would refuse to meet with its leader, and try to pressure him not to even visit the United States. He would accuse the Israeli leader of being racist and unjust to the Palestinians, no matter how violent they were to the Israelis.

2) Give in to the Iranian position in the nuclear arms negotiations. If Khamenei were in charge, he would agree to the Iranian demand to keep enriching uranium, which could be used to make many atomic bombs, and to keep making long range ICBMS which could hit the US. He would also pressure our European allies to agree to the same.

3) Yemen. Khamenei would work to ensure that the radical Shiite rebels take over the country.

4) Egypt. Khamenei would attack the Egyptian government and withhold military aid because the Egyptian government is fighting the radical Muslim Brotherhood.

5) Iraq. Khamenei would commit American air power to support the savage Shiite militias and Iranian Revolutionary Guards waging war against the equally savage Islamic State.

5) Radical Islam. Khamenei would never say we are at war with radical Islam. Instead, he’d focus on the evils of the Crusades.

6) Border security. Khamenei would refuse to secure the border, knowing that would prevent radical islamic sleeper cells from getting into the country.

7) Refugees. Khamenei would insist that the US take in thousands of refugees from Iraq and Syria who, when massed in large enough numbers, could impose Sharia Law and commit acts of terror.

Of course, these policies I have attributed to the Ayatollah are all policies of President Obama. In almost every respect he’s doing exactly what the Ayatollah wants. It’s interesting how similar the policies of the two are, don’t you think?

Pakistan May Join Saudi Yemen Offensive, Help ‘Encircle Iran’

Pakistan, the largest Sunni state by far with a strong military and nuclear weapons, says ‘the matter is being examined.’

Pakistan said Thursday it was examining a request from Saudi Arabia to participate in the Saudi-led military operation against Iran-backed Shi’ite Houthi rebels in Yemen.

Official Saudi news agency SPA reported Pakistan was among five Muslim countries that have “declared their willingness to participate” in the offensive, along with Jordan, Sudan, Morocco and Egypt.

The Wall Street Journal reported that the Pakistani Foreign Ministry confirmed that it had received a request from Saudi Arabia, but did not elaborate further.

“I can confirm that we have been contacted by Saudi Arabia in this regard,” Pakistani Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Tasnim Aslam said Thursday. “The matter is being examined. That’s all I have to say at the moment.”

According to media reports, the Saudis want Pakistan to assist in air strikes and ground operations.

In recent weeks, Pakistani officials indicated that Islamabad turned down a request from Saudi Arabia for more Pakistani troops to reinforce its border with Yemen. While Pakistani soldiers are stationed in Saudi Arabia, their numbers are not known.

Like its close ally Saudi Arabia, Pakistan is a majority Sunni Muslim country, while Shi’ites make up about 20% of the population. But Pakistan has thus far been wary of getting drawn into the war between Saudi and Iranian proxies throughout the Middle East.

Writing in the Asia Times, columnist David Goldman assessed Thursday that the Saudis were doing an admirable job in the diplomacy that accompanies their offensive in Yemen.

“Pakistan is by far the largest Sunni state with a strong military and air force, and its alignment with the Saudi-led coalition is of decisive importance,” he wrote. “Egypt has sent four warships to the Gulf of Aden to secure the southern approach to the Suez Canal, and may have deterred an Iranian naval presence.”

In this context, Goldman noted that Arutz Sheva cited a tweet from a senior editor at Saudi online paper Arab News, according to which Egyptian ships forced an Iranian retreat from the strategic Bab Al-Mandab strait near the Port of Aden.

“Iran may be overextended with major commitments of Revolutionary Guards in Syria and Iraq,” the analyst added. “Its air force flies Shah-vintage American planes, while Saudi Arabia has several hundred fourth-generation fighters, including about 200 F-15’s. If Saudi Arabia can hold a Sunni coalition together, it should be in position to encircle and contain Iran.”
