Has anyone noticed that the common denominator of all the successful Arab street movements is that they are sympathetic to Iran? When the dust settles, Iran is going to own the Middle East - except for maybe Saudi Arabia, if we have the guts to help them (which I very much doubt).
We are going to lose our pals in Bahrain - not nice guys, but pals of the U.S.A. anyway - and we are going to lose our pals in Yemen, and it will possibly have an actual al Qaeda government.
There is a gigantic regional coup by Iran taking place. We are doing very little, if anything, to stop it.
In a single piece, the Clear Eyes pitchman manages to drop an unbelievable number of conspiracy theories. The Muslim Brotherhood was tied to Hilter! Iran is trying to gain control over the entire Middle East! Al-Qaeda is about to take control of Yemen! The “Arab Spring” is a fraud! If you ever watched Ben Stein’s documentary on evolution, where he actually took viewers to Nazi death camps to prove his pro-Creationism point, this column is of no surprise. But let’s be clear — while certain things may not turn in favor of the U.S. and Israel, our boy is trying to scare us and simplify a complicated issue in a divisive way. Also, why is CBS giving this man a paycheck? This is unacceptable.
I used to like this guy. I enjoyed watching “Win Ben Stein’s Money”. Then he came out in public as a (for lack of a better word) moron. I was disappointed: another person I liked as a child turned out to be an idiot.
