White House Hopeful Imperato Speaks Out About Rice, Chirac, and Iranian Affairs

October 19, 2005 – West Palm Beach – Today, 2008 Presidential Hopeful Daniel Imperato spoke out again about the diplomacy needed with Iran. Imperato highlighted US diplomatic blunders with Iran and the needed mutual respect between the two countries.
Imperato went on to say, “Our administration has been waffling with Iranian policy and diplomacy well before the new president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad came into office. The administration announced that the new Iranian president had participated in criminal activities many years ago. Then they demanded he stop their potential nuclear program.”
Earlier this summer, the administration came out and issued a statement that Ahmadinejad may have been the wrong person in regards to the crimes they accused him of before.
After last week’s meetings, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said the Iranians needed to restore confidence that they are not trying to build a nuclear weapon after talks with French president Jacques Chirac.
The Iranian President, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, then came out and reaffirmed his country’s nuclear aspirations and the justification for doing so.
“In my opinion, this administration’s diplomacy pertaining to the Middle East is all over the map,” commented Imperato.
The United States, according to Imperato, needed to formulate a more consistent policy towards all Middle East countries.
“First of all, our administration requests democracy in Iraq, with soldiers getting killed, but at the same time allows the people of Israel to be torn from their homes in a barbaric manner. This is hardly what I would call peace. In addition, Condoleezza Rice threatened Syria and Iran pertaining to the Iraqi situation. These countries have been neighbors for 6000 years and our administration must realize that the roots of these countries go deep into the generations and the families of those generations. I have spoken enough for the moment, in order for the administration to recognize the need for peace and unified diplomacy with mutual respect for each other’s neighbors,” stated Imperato.
Imperato then went on to question why the United States was moving closer to Jacques Chirac.
Chirac has always been a critic of the United States, especially under the Bush administration. Most notably, Chirac was one of the staunchest forces against the UN Resolution to enter Iraq, as well as the Coalition of the Willing.
“I stand up to tell the people of the United States of America and the people of the rest of the world, that our administration and our country had a clear disagreement with President Chirac, who did not participate with the coalition, and now suddenly Condoleezza Rice is having discussions with him,” spoke Imperato.
“This is the man who alienated us in the Iraqi situation, and now he has become an important figure in squeezing Iran and warning Tehran that he will support sanctions against Iran alongside of the United States.”
Imperato felt that there was something more going on with Chirac’s intentions for his new diplomatic relations with the United States.
“Our administration, who’s out looking for support for its coalition and still wagging its tail from Chirac called ‘an inappropriate non-diplomatic actions’ that it has taken, is now back in the saddle with the very president [Chirac] who created the confusion and dissention surrounding the coalition from day one,” stated Imperato.
“I say our administration is being setup and I say that Jacques Chirac is sticking his nose in the Iranian situation specifically to create more animosity between the US and Iran, and potentially war, in order to enhance himself and line his own country’s pockets through the potential supply of war components to Iran in the event of a disturbance.”
Imperato then called on President Bush and Secretary of State Rice to ‘open up their eyes’ and discuss Chirac’s true intentions with causing trouble in the region, due to his political and financial interests in the region.
France is a major trading partner with many countries in the Middle East including Iran.
Imperato felt that Chirac now has a desire for revenge against the Bush administration for going forward with the Iraqi situation without him.
“I believe that his revenge is to create instability in the region and his ego desires to squeeze our administration into a forced demand to Iran, which in return will only add more fuel to the fire. I don’t believe that on this particular subject that the French president Jacques Chirac should even be part of the equation, since he decided not to participate with the US on the first problem,” stated Imperato.
Imperato warned our administration of the disaster it may be heading towards and who’s hands that they may be falling into.
Also when 2008 comes around, Imperato worried as to what potential mess he might have to deal with and clean up after the activities that our country is engaging in now.
“I call out for the people of the United States of America and the people for the rest of the world, and our political leaders to stand for peace not war and to try to use the right philosophy and the right language because the power of the tongue is the most powerful part and most dangerous part of our human body,” called Imperato.
“The question that I have for our administration and President Bush himself, is how would you react if a foreign military established a presence on the borders of your ranch, and how would you feel if those very participants who placed that military installation in your backyard continued to be threaten you verbally. Would you stand down and roll over, or protect your interest?”
For this reason, Imperato stressed the need for ‘mutual respect, understanding, wisdom, [and] patience’ with the United States and the Middle East, without the demands of France.
After making such strong assertions, Imperato went on to finish his statement as follows: “I have mentioned it in the past and I will mention it again, the dangerous games that are being played in that region are clearly the makings of an Armageddon. Those who are responsible and are taking apart in this egotistical, devilish, and arrogant vocal communication will pay the price, but the problem is that the whole world and its people will suffer. I say cease fire. Peace not War. We need bilateral discussions without twisted tongues and a commitment from the leaders of these countries for peaceful resolve in a democratic manner, with freedom for all.”
