Understanding It–The Gathering Storm…

A powerful and chilling account; a speech by Rick Santorum.

Read the entire speech. A brief excerpt follows:

“… Ahmadinejad , like Hitler and Mussolini, intends to conquer the world. This is not a hidden agenda. His goal is to establish a Caliphate. Like Khrushchev, he wants a nuclear arsenal, and he is building the same sort of frightening global alliances that enabled the Soviet Union to put missiles near us.

Look again at the Iranians’ strategy. A couple of months ago Ahmadinejad signed a mutual defense pact with his pal, Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez. Two dictators, awash in petrodollars, and besotted with hatred for the United States.

President Chavez, who called President Bush “a devil” at the podium of the U.N., spoke to the applause of those in attendance as he decried America. Calling America an “imperialist power,” he says his ambition is to become leader of global alliance of nations to “radically oppose the violent pressure that the (American) empire exercises.”

This summer Chavez honored Ahmadinejad at a gala and plans to visit North Korea, at which an “oil-for-missiles deal” may be on the agenda.

The same North Korea that has been building nuclear weapons to put on missiles that can reach our soil.

Did you know that Venezuela is the leading buyer of arms and military equipment in the world today? Did you know that Chavez is building an army of more than a million soldiers and the most potent air force in South America – the largest Spanish-speaking armed force in history?

Did you know that Venezuela will shortly spend thirty billion dollars to build twenty military bases in neighboring Bolivia, which will dominate the borders with Chile, Peru, Paraguay, Argentina and Brazil? The bases will be commanded by Venezuelan and Cuban officers.

This is what the brilliant Carlos Alberto Montaner – a survivor of Castro’s bloody regime – calls “a delirious vision of history,” and it is driven by a new alliance of dictators from Iran, Cuba and Venezuela.

It is part of the grand design so proudly announced by Ahmadinejad: the destruction of our civilization.

And the sad irony is, we are dependent on the very people who hate us. American imports 60% of the oil we need to fuel our economy. We are underwriting their efforts to undermine us. …”
