The New York Times has just posted a disturbing “Breaking News Alert” report that states:
“Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates has warned in a secret three-page memorandum to top White House officials that the United States does not have an effective long-range policy for dealing with Iran’s steady progress toward nuclear capability, according to government officials familiar with the document.” (Emphasis added.)
Why doesn’t the President have a plan for dealing with Iran at this late date? This seems to match his history of voting “Present” so often while a State Senator in Illinois. Well Mr. President, this is no longer the minor leagues!
The current situation with Iran is additional proof that President Obama’s charm offensive with Iran and the greater Muslim world has met with total failure. While “words matter”, in foreign policy actions speak louder.
Now, we have a President, who is perceived weak by our adversaries, having to deal with the potential of a nuclear Iran. We can only hope for an internal revolution to stop the world from having to deal with a catastrophic situation. We can also hope that a new administration will be elected before the crackpot Mullahs in Iran get access to this WMD.
The Obama Administration has shown more concern with our ally, Israel, building a few homes in a land in which they live than the Iranians building nuclear weapons. It is little wonder that the Iranians show no concern about the West’s reaction to their dangerous course of action.
