Does Obama Understand the Threat of a Nuclear Iran?
FoxNews ^ | Jan 27, 2011 | Reza Kahlili

Posted on 01/27/2011 6:02:53 PM PST by Innovative

In his State of the Union speech, President Obama addressed one of the biggest threats to the free world in the 21st century in just one sentence: "Because of a diplomatic effort to insist that Iran meet its obligations, the Iranian government now faces tougher and tighter sanctions than ever before." However, the president failed to mention that his policies toward Iran, in the two years he's been in office have proven to have been a complete failure.

....

We would do well to remember the words of President Reagan to the nation on the night of our bombing of Libya's terrorist facilities in 1986: "There is no security, no safety, in the appeasement of evil. It must be the core of Western policy that there be no sanctuary for terror. And to sustain such a policy, free men and free nations must unite and work together."

And we and the Western world will pay for it.

Question — is Obama really this naive? Or do we need to consider the alternative...

No, he doesn't understand anything about anything other than his ideology of a Socialist Utopia that can not work.

Does Obummer understand the dire situations in Egypt and Tunisia?

Not the mention Venezuela and the rest of South America lurching towards Communism.

All we hear is crickets...

He is either too stupid to notice or stupid like a fox.

I just wish Reagan had used that phrase 3 years earlier, after the Marine barracks bombing in Beruit.

How could The O understand? After all, he even refuses to understand the threat of a much closer problem: The porous US-Mexico border.

I used to think that the alternative was indeed reality. I thought he was an evil genius. After that abysmal SOTU speech the only explanation that makes sense to me is that the man is an idiot. He's like a high school sophmore addressing grown ups. My mind just keeps telling me the man can't be that tone deaf. I think that he is just the worst possible manifestation of affirmative action. A moron in over his head, unable to grasp the big picture in any situation. Someone who has surrounded himself his entire life with "yes" men so he's never had to actually be responsible for anything. Unfortunately, as you pointed out we will all pay for it.

My apologies for the rant. Its a soapbox issue for me.

It's the old "Is he stupid or is he evil?" question.

IMO, not enough people understand that he is evil. He is here to do us harm. He understands what he is doing, and what Iran is doing, and all the rest. He wants to bring us down.

Yes, because he knows how it will effect us in the long run, and No, because he does not care about that eventuality...

We had a chance almost two years ago during the “Green Revolution” to help the opposition in Iran.

But because Obama didn’t want to offend Achmeninutjob, because he naively thought we might negotiate peace with them, we held back.

A golden opportunity missed.

That photo reminds me of Neville Chamberlain holding up his peace agreement with Hitler, saying:

“Peace in our time”

The picture of Obama has been floating around for years.

But it means the same as Chamberlain’s letter did.

Words on paper mean nothing to tyrannical dictators.

Obama, from the start of his presidency, had a strong focus on Domestic agenda “for change” for the U.S. - his foreign policy, so far, in addition to the usual political rhetoric, has been that of talks, containment & appeasement.

We should have blasted the living dogsh!t out of Hizbullah and Iran after that.

Hitler probably used his copy of that FOOL Chamberlain’s “peace agreement” as toilet paper.

I think the only things OThuga understands very well at all are:

1. He knows he likes BJ’s from men.
2. He knows he loves power and playing grandly at public expense.
3. He knows he’s a globalist puppet/stooge.
4. He might even know he’s a doomed idiot but I doubt it.

What Obama knows about the threat of a nuclear Iran is that a nuclear Iran will be capable of crushing Israel and Barack Hussein Obama will sit back and watch the show.
