Senator John Kerry of Massachusetts, the Aspiring Diplomat

The smiling face of the Vietnam War hero, oops, excuse me I mean  traitor, and  the face of the man the drone like electorate of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts keep sending back to the senate term after term.

However, due to international developing scenarios  the man of less than stellar integrity may find new international recognition. Something he has always sought to gain.

It seems the much esteemed Foreign Relations Chairman is contemplating a trip to Iran. The possible trip is reportedly with the sanction and blessing of the Obama administration.

The worry we should all have is this; the trip is possibly, and likely to play into the hands of the illegitimate Theocracy and Totalitarian Dictatorship that rules this once great  Persian nation.

As the most senior U.S. official to visit Iran in thirty years the effect, both in Tehran as well as globally, would be to give legitimacy to the current madman Ahmadinejad and the 7th century minded Mullahs and their modern day theocracy.

Of course it is possible the real reason behind the visit would be to get Iran's morally bankrupt regime  to accept U.S. and world pressure to halt their development of nuclear capabilities. As Tehran has remained heretofore resistant and belligerent it is unlikely  the urgings of a man of Senator Kerry's questionable stature will result in any positive outcome for the U.S. or the world.

With the current unrest in Iran, and the resultant widespread demonstrations and protests occurring in the country, it is likely unwise Senator Kerry, and untested diplomat, visit Iran and engage in activities that will likely prove harmful to the the Iranian opposition movement.

Rational Nation USA is all for meaningful diplomatic efforts. However they should be with the best interests of the Iranian people, U.S. rational interests, and the interests of  Israel in mind. It is indeed unlikely that a visit from Senator Kerry, bargaining from a compromising position, will have any real and positive effect. It is more likely to disrupt and damage the Iranian people's attempt to change their corrupt and illegitimate government.

We should be finding avenues to show our nations support for the cause of  the Iranian People. Hopefully Mr. Kerry and the POTUS  realize this and act accordingly should Kerry make the trip to Tehran.

  1. off topic but i don't know why, RN, but when i added you to my blog list, it shows a post you did 4 months ago and won't update. got any ideas why?

  2. Not a one. I have contacted Goggle and to date received no response. During Early 2010 I will be working with s site designer to improve my sites appearance, functionality, and speed.

    Perhaps after Thing will operate as they should. I suspect it is the Google blog follow function that is broken on my blog. Hope to have it functional next year.

    Thank for pointing it out.

  3. ahhh ok, that must be it, the google blog follow. it doesn't show in your link on my resource page as it does in others. wonder if i can just add it myself?

  4. Don't know. But if it works let me know. If it doesn't the whole system must be preventing updates.

    Maybe it is because I am so, well in the words of Homeland Security Chief Napolatano, a domestic threat. :-)

  5. well i tried but found no way of doing it. even changed the template, thinking that might be it but nope. guess you're stuck back in time. lol

    besides my regular site i have another one where i try different things out first before changing my site.
