Woo! Hoo! Break out the victory champagne! Wonderful news on the diplomatic and economic fronts!

Obama's expressions of deep concern have caused Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to wilt under the pressure and announce that Iran will destroy its nuclear plants. On top of that there is news of soaring employment numbers as well as a booming economy.

Okay, so maybe none of this is really happening but one could be forgiven for believing these fantasies if his reading material were limited to Reuters which jubilantly published a story by Steve Holland titled Obama Scores Twin Coups on Iran, Economy:

PITTSBURGH (Reuters) - President Barack Obama scored twin diplomatic coups on Friday, seizing the world stage to forge a new allied call for action against Iran and a framework for global economic growth.

Despite the popping of corks over at Al Reuters, the only thing Obama did today was unleash Israel. They now have nothing stopping them from taking out iran’s nuclear program(s).

I was thinking, he could have said this at the UN, you know, when he was talking crap about the US. Instead, I feel, that he is reacting to Sarah’s points in China and her facebook post on the Jewish holiday of Yom Kippur. I wonder if he’ll call Alme- whatever his name, to apologize.

Yes, but fixing the economy and ending the Iran threat are a step down from his promises. He’s the Messiah.

I liked Iran's response: (Closely paraphrased): "Who do you think you are? You're just one country like any other country. You cannot tell us how to conduct our affairs."

Obama's "America sucks" campaign bearing first fruits in the middle east.

And of course there’s the Huffington Post declaring that an “Obama Team” foiled the Al-Qaeda terrorist plot that Zazi was involved in. All hail the new Commander In Chief for stopping the sort of attack that Bush didn’t!

Man, these people make me mad.

Those facing the Gulag worsen the economy and hence the future state of the facilities/societies they will be condemned in.

The insane anti-warists run and teach in the assylum.

Of course reducing the Border Patrol ranks by 384 agents will help the Administration intercept any potential terror threats before they can strike.

Re: you cannot tell us how to conduct our affairs.

Seriously, there is no “higher authority” by which one country can tell another what to do inside its own borders. It might be a wise move for other countries to knock out Iran’s nuclear facilities, but such an act would be based solely on the preferences of the other countries. Nations have behaved toward each other this way for centuries. It’s neither bad or good. It just is.

Obama is very quickly turning us into a second-rate country and it won’t be long before we have tin-horn dictator of our own.
