W Ketchup™ Exhorts Bush to Stand Firm against Iran
Eagle Bridge, NY — April 18, 2006 — W Ketchup reaffirms its support of the Bush Doctrine, and exhorts Bush to stand firm against Iran. On April 11, Iran announced in a religious ceremony that it had produced enriched uranium, the primary element needed to make a nuclear bomb. Shortly thereafter, Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad declared: “The Zionist regime is a rotten, dried tree that will be eliminated by one storm.”
The Bush Doctrine calls for preemptive action to protect the United States, our allies, and the liberal international order. Summarizing his policy before the invasion of Iraq, Bush stated: “Facing clear evidence of peril, we cannot wait for the final proof—the smoking gun—that could come in the form of a mushroom cloud.”
The Iranian nuclear threat first became visible in 2002, whereupon the Europeans began fruitless diplomatic negotiations. Recently, Philip Sherwell of the London Telegraph revealed the purpose behind the sham negotiations: “Hassan Rowhani, who headed talks with the so-called EU3 until last year, revealed how Tehran played for time and tried to dupe the West after its secret nuclear program was uncovered.... He told his audience: ‘When we were negotiating with the Europeans in Tehran we were still installing some of the equipment at the Isfahan site ... In reality, by creating a tame situation, we could finish Isfahan.’”
W Ketchup CEO Dan Oliver commented: “The Democrats and their European allies have spent three years criticizing Bush for not trying more diplomacy in Iraq. They had four years to negotiate with Iran, and we see the results. We can either take the European option and preemptively surrender to Iranian nuclear ambitions or we can negotiate backed by the credible threat of military force. It is again time for Bush to stand firm.”
In 2004, presidential candidate John Kerry called on Bush to provide Iran with nuclear fuel, a position later adopted by Russian President Vladimir Putin. Among Kerry’s top fundraisers were three Iranians: Hassan Nemazee, Faraj Aalaei, and Susan Akbarpour, who analysts estimate raised over $700,000 for Kerry’s doomed campaign. Ms. Akbarpour’s initial contributions came while she was still an Iranian citizen and not a US resident, and while she maintained a privileged relationship with government agencies of the Islamic Republic of Iran. She urged that the finger-printing requirement for Iranians entering the U.S. be dropped.
Intelligence reports indicate that Iran may already be stockpiling nuclear warheads purchased from the former Soviet Union in deeply buried bunkers. During his presidential campaign, Kerry pledged to end research on bunker-busting tactical nuclear weapons that could destroy these stockpiles.
Maria Teresa Thiersten Simoes-Ferreira Heinz, writing in The Forward, urged Bush to use the “strongest possible condemnations” against Iran. Her statement echoed French Foreign Minister Philippe Douste-Blazy who condemned the Iranian remarks against Israel “in the strongest possible terms.” Ms. Heinz signed her article with the name “Kerry,” which she had stopped using after her husband’s failed presidential campaign.
