How Can We Trust Democrats on Iran?

Stolen from GenerationWhy, this quotation comparison helps bring into focus the larger problem of Iran, their nuclear threats and the Democrat Party:


Again we have a nuclear ambitious, Islamic tyrant playing games with the United Nations. And the Democrats are acting the same way they did towards
Iraq prior to the war.

Senator John Kerry (D-MA)

"Iran has made a dangerous and silly decision of confronting not just the U.S. government but the entire international community."

Tom Lantos (D-CA)

"Iran is hell-bent on developing nuclear weapons"

Senator Bill Nelson (D-FL)

"European governments should make clear to Iran that there can't be business as usual as long as Ahmadinejad, or others who espouse his radical views, hold high office ... the U.S. needs to press for stiff multilateral sanctions aimed at stopping Iran's nuclear program ... there still are measures the U.S. can take alone to increase pressure on Tehran..."

DNC Platform

"Iran has reportedly been working to develop [WMDs]. A nuclear-armed Iran is an unacceptable risk to us and our allies... We must show determined leadership to ... prevent the development of nuclear weapons in places like Iran."

But remember, we were hearing this sort of talk from Democrats with respect to Iraq long before the war.

John Kerry (
Jan. 23, 2003)

"Without question, we need to disarm Saddam Hussein. He is a brutal, murderous dictator, leading an oppressive regime ... He presents a particularly grievous threat because he is so consistently prone to miscalculation ... And now he is miscalculating America's response to his continued deceit and his consistent grasp for weapons of mass destruction ... So the threat of Saddam Hussein with weapons of mass destruction is real..."

Bill Clinton (Feb. 4, 1998)

"One way or the other, we are determined to deny Iraq the capacity to develop weapons of mass destruction and the missiles to deliver them. That is our bottom line."

Madelaine Albright (Feb. 1, 1998)

"We must stop Saddam from ever again jeopardizing the stability and security of his neighbors with weapons of mass destruction."

Sandy Bergler (Feb. 18, 1998)

"He will use those weapons of mass destruction again, as he has ten times since 1983."

Nancy Pelosi (Dec. 16, 1998)

"Saddam Hussein has been engaged in the development of weapons of mass destruction technology which is a threat to countries in the region and he has made a mockery of the weapons inspection process."

Ted Kennedy (Sept. 27, 2002)

"We have known for many years that Saddam Hussein is seeking and developing weapons of mass destruction."

Being the party of opportunist and a coming midterm election, it's all but impossible to know how the Democrats are going to react to the Iran issue, save for whining, bloviating, and bleating for the "international community" to do something and blaming Bush and the Republicans for the problem.
