Tehran is about to blow! Where's Obama?
NY Post ^ | January 10, 2010 | Michael Goodwin

Posted on 01/10/2010 4:36:02 AM PST by Scanian

I try not to overdose on the fear factor, but the shocking intelligence failure in the Christmas airline plot isn't the only national security night mare facing America. While we were all absorbed with the underwear bomber, the Iranian nuke mess took another big turn for the worse.

President Obama's end-of-the-year deadline for the mad mullahs to make a deal on uranium enrichment came and went, but not without incident. There were three, none good.

Most troubling, the White House proved it still doesn't have a Plan B, even though its unBush diplomacy has proven to be a total dud. Get a load of the double-talk from press secretary Robert Gibbs.

The only questions remaining seem to be, what will Iran DO with their nukes and how will they deliver them-? My bet for the first is an American target, via a container ship. Israel is led by adults with serious military resources at their disposal. Other’s thoughts-?

Is the issue not so much wether there will be trouble but simply who fires first?

The iranian fascists in power didn't do what zer0 said so he will punish them by ignoring the opposition people in the street.

Naval blockade....But then again we don’t want to upset Europeans or cause mass demonstrations...It would make Obammy look like Bush!

I’ve thought smuggled in to Gaza.
No one really gives a damn about the Palestinians.
Besides the way the Iranian madmen think they will die furthering allah’s will.
Iran can fake getting ready a delivery system but hey, even a container ship off Haifa and there you have it.

“A top Chinese diplomat made that clear, saying last week, “This is not the right time or right moment for sanctions,” and more “patience” with Iran is needed.”

“a report surfaced showing Chinese companies routinely evade the three rounds of sanctions the United Nations already slapped on Iran. The Chinese firms sell, among other banned goods, missile technology. “

Whatcha gonna do now, Hillary/Obama?

My bet for the first is an American target

The rags of the world still believe New York City to be the center of our world so it is still target #1.
If they have two devices, DC is the official seat of the Great Satan, so DC is target #2.

While the rags hate Israel too, they may not want to nuke them. They know Israel would eliminate their enemies.

Much safer to hit the US while we have no president.

Oh please, let Chicago be #3.

I almost posted Chicago as #3. There were some indicators back in 2001 that the rags wanted to hit the Sears Tower too. Harder to do with a container ship, but a semi-trailer from Mexico does the same thing.
