Iran and Obama’s
Yowusa.com, June 14, 2009
One answer reflects a Winston Churchill observation of Russian national interests back in 1938.
They are “a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma.”
Assuming the same holds true today, the question then becomes, how will President Obama deal with it?
Herein, the perennially popular Aesop's fable of the Tortoise and the Hare offers an interesting clue. During the Presidential election campaign, Obama was the tortoise, and McCain was the hare. Obama kept his head down as he steadily plodded along the course he’d decided for himself; whilst McCain hopped all about him like issue-frenzied hare.
All through this political spectacle, we wondered who is this Obama fellow? As those who were simply in love with the man, the rest of us could never manage to pierce through his armored shell, so as to see the meat his is made of. Nonetheless, Obama, just as the plodding tortoise of the Aesop's fable, crossed the finish line first.
Not because Obama was the better man, but because McCain failed to do the right thing for the little people. Had he stood up in Congress and said, “let’s not be stampeded into a boondoggle handout for the rich,” he would have eked out a last minute victory.
In essence the moral of this lesson is that Obama won because McCain failed to seize the day, which is not to say that the Iranians are hares too. Rather, they’re like Obama, of the tortoise variety, and they have tough shells too.
Yet, as he did with the election, President Obama is once again plodding along the slow and safe course of the tortoise, but to what end — a surprise 2nd envelope day?
Obama’s Second Envelope Day
This month it was already reported by the Associated Press (AP) that Iran has rejected a request from the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) to install cameras at their Natanz site. The IAEA further finds that Iran has stepped up its production of nuclear fuel and now has 7,200 installed centrifuges. This Natanz facility that is now off-limits to the IAEA is presently capable of fueling two nuclear weapons a year.
This is an existential threat for Israel, as Iran has already declared war against them, both in political verbiage and deeds. Just last May, Iranian parliamentary speaker Ali Larijani was quoted as saying, “We are proud to defend Hamas and Hizbullah. We are not trying to hide it. They are fighters in the path of God, and you can call them whatever you like."
Regardless of whether you are in favor of or opposed to President Obama’s political strategy, we are now faced with a radical regime that has rigged an election so that it can pursue its stated national ambitions. Once again, we find ourselves in a time reminiscent of when the national ambitions Adolf Hitler stated in his book, Mein Kampf, were largely dismissed as political posturing.
Of equal historical note is this; from the days following the Hebrew Exodus from Egypt, what survives of an ancient wisdom text called the Great Book is now found within the Egyptian Texts of the Bronzebook from The Kolbrin Bible.
All the harbinger signs of these times that were given to us in this 3600-year old text by the ancient Egyptians have come to pass. The most ominous of these is:
The Kolbrin Bible
Book of Manuscripts 3:8
”One worship will pass into the four quarters of the Earth, talking peace and bringing war.”
To whom is The Kolbrin Bible referring? Judaism celebrates life, and Christianity celebrates love, but only Islam celebrates peace.
It is amazing to consider that ancient Egyptians could foresee the present day violent nature of Islam from a remote distance of some 3600 years past. "So it is written, so shall it be"—The Ten Commandments (1956)
Just as then, we are now racing headlong to another 2nd envelope day. It will not be the day after the IAEA confirms that Iran has successfully tested an atomic bomb. Rather, it will be the day they use it – and this, they will do. It has been foreseen.
That will be the day that President Obama reaches into his desk drawer for his second envelope, knowing that his legacy has forever changed. That he will no longer be remembered as the first African-American President in US history. Rather, he could very well be remembered as the first African-American President in US history to be impeached for treason.
Our Second Envelope Day
Whatever path President Obama chooses, it will be his choice. In this regard, he is a man who evidences himself to honor his own counsel above all others. Rather than rage at him for decisions we feel to be wise or otherwise, each of us most have the presence of mind to look for two letters in our own desk drawer.
The moment you blame someone else for your fate, know this; you have only one envelope left. However, there is a modicum of good news.
The second envelope of the common man and woman contains not one, but two sheets of paper. The first sheet of paper says:
The road ahead is troublesome indeed, but never forget that fear is the knife’s edge of death. Follow your fears, and you will inevitably stumble upon a blade.
Then, the second page says:
Remember the wisdom of the ancients.
The Kolbrin Bible
Book of Manuscripts 3:10
“MAN:3:10 In those days, men will have the Great Book before them; wisdom will be revealed; the few will be gathered for the stand; it is the hour of trial. The dauntless ones will survive; the stouthearted will not go down to destruction.”
Be aware, and let your awareness lead to knowledge, and from there, on to preparation. Above all else, never forget that, “the stouthearted will not go down to destruction.” This wisdom helped the ancients survive past global cataclysms, and they have gifted it to us, so that we may survive and carry on.
As you hold the second envelope and these two sheets of paper in your hands, you may wonder how it was this simple wisdom could endure the millennia.
The answer to that is: the greatest truths are – of and by necessity – simple. Embrace the wisdom, and face the future with dauntless resolve. You will survive.
