For the Obama administration, the prospect of a nuclearized Iran is dismal to contemplate— it would create major new national-security challenges and crush the president’s dream of ending nuclear proliferation. But the view from Jerusalem is still more dire: a nuclearized Iran represents, among other things, a threat to Israel’s very existence.

Obama WANTS Iran to have the bomb.
WANTS despite what the article purports.

Like the 911 terrorists, pres_ _ent Obama,

only to crash it into oblivion and death.

Well stated, good call especially considering all that the country has been through.

Most people, often including myself, don’t read the articles. Sometime you think the title, maybe an excerpt, maybe a few paragraphs are sufficient.

READ THIS IN ITS ENTIRETY.

You won’t be sorry.

You will have a view of one or the other potential catastrophe that is awaiting the World.
