Barbara Slavin personifies domestic anti-Americanism

Barbara Slavin personifies domestic anti-Americanism

If you enter the sanctum sanctorum of the left-wing political and diplomatic establishment you will find another of those obscure multi-level international repositories of  elitist thinking.  In this case, it is the Future of Iran Initiative — part of the Atlantic Council, which is a member of the Atlantic Treaty Association formerly associated with North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO).  (These folks sure do love bureaucracies.)

If you review these organizations’ websites, you would come to believe that they are devoted to the conservative principles of democracy and personal freedom.  But in practical application, they seem to find that the solutions to all the world’s problems rest in supplication to a self-proclaimed elitist group of exceptionally able individuals – as opposed to we less noble creatures, otherwise known as “the masses.”

The director of the Iran Initiative is Barbara Slavin.  Her left-wing bona fides are impeccable.  She is a Harvard educated New York journalist, who has worked for the New York Times and served as a fellow of the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars.  (I always laugh when I see those left-wing ideologues gathering at an organization named after arguably the most racist President of the Twentieth Century – but that is another story.)

Slavin was provided an opportunity by CBS to give her opinion on the killing of the world’s number one terrorist leader, Qasem Soleimani – a quasi-official of the rogue Irani regime.  I say “quasi” because he headed the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), which is not fully under the authority of the official Iranian government and has been designated as a terrorist organization.  He was also the titular head of a matrix of independent international terrorist originations – including Hamas, Hezbollah, and al-Shabaab.

Soleimani was, without fear of refutation, the bloodiest and most important terrorist leader in the world at the time of his demise.  He was personally responsible for the deaths of more than 600 American military personnel and literally hundreds of thousands of men, women and children throughout the Muslim world.  He was much more than the “bad dude” that Democrats reluctantly concede.

This guy is so bad that when he was killed in Iraq, he was in violation of a United Nations travel ban because of his terrorist activities.

So, what does Slavin think of Soleimani’s departure to Hell?  She described the killing of Soleimani as “stunningly stupid” – sounding like a press release from Tehran.  She takes on the incredible argument that Soleimani was too important to be held accountable – too important to be stopped from killing more Americans.

That seems to reflect the thinking of the diplomatic establishment that discouraged Presidents Clinton, Bush, and Obama from taking Soleimani out when they had the chance.  That gives no comfort to the many who have since died because of the cowardly inaction of three American presidents.

Slavin paints a uniformly dark picture.  Her losers are America and the people of the Middle East.  Her stated winners are ISIS, al Qaeda, Russia, and China.

According to Slavin’s thinking, any violent response from Tehran is understandable.  They have been provoked – as if all those terrorist attacks of yore, the torpedoing of oil tankers, the shooting down of American drones, killing an American contractor, shooting missiles into American facilities in Iraq, the attack on Saudi oil facilities and attacking the American embassy in Baghdad are not acts of provocation.

Slavin brushes all of this aside because Trump angered Iran by pulling out of that “incredibly stupid” (to use her words) nuclear treaty – a one-sided pact into which her ideological landsmen unwisely entered.

She accuses President Trump of unilaterally launching the strike on Soleimani as a matter of personal ego and a means to distract from his upcoming impeachment trial.  She ignores the imminent threat that Soleimani posed to American lives and assets – not to mention her disregard for all those lives lost in the past.

Slavin lays all blame on Trump – ignoring the fact that it was President Carter who allowed the mullah extremists to take control of Iran and that Iran had been a violent terrorist rogue nation ever since.  The fact that Iran is the threat to world peace that it is today is due to some 40 years of endless diplomatic talk and baseless threats from the diplomatic establishment that Slavin represents.

As a commentator journalist, Slavin is most certainly entitled to her opinion – even if it expressed for the benefit of the avowed enemies of the United States.  But that does not mean we cannot call her out for taking up the cause of terrorists.

So, there ‘tis.

    So any future American death in Iraq will be blamed on this strike by President Trump. There will be no acknowledgment of the hundreds of deaths attributed to Soleimani, no acknowledgment of the hundreds more deaths he was planning. That is the biopic view of the left wing, and it is becoming so obvious, and so disgusting to the average American, that I fear we are losing the balance of a two party system where each party has some reasonable platform.
