Security: An Iran that's building nuclear weapons sponsors a shot at terrorism and murder on U.S. soil. Will we wait until Ahmadinejad's operatives come across our porous Southern border with a dirty bomb?
The good news is the Iranian plot to assassinate the Saudi ambassador to the U.S. with a car bomb at a Washington, D.C., restaurant was foiled. The bad news is that Iran even attempted to strike inside America.
This is something that speaks to the fruits of President Obama's apology tour: Those that should fear us don't. Iran doesn't fear America or possible retaliation any more than it did when the Iranian-backed terrorist group Hezbollah murdered 241 U.S. service members in their Beirut barracks in 1983.
What will we do? Cut off a few more bank accounts? Ask for more meaningless sanctions? We bomb Libya, the mouse that roared, but won't even send so much as an iPhone to Iranian dissidents who share a common enemy Tehran.
In 2009, when Iranian dissidents risked their lives to demonstrate against the gray-beard mullahs oppressing them, Tehran paused briefly as the Soviet Union did in Hungary in 1956. Seeing no Western support for the uprising, Tehran unleashed its security apparatus to suppress and murder much as Moscow ordered the tanks to roll into Budapest. Now we are Iran's target.
How it was tried should also concern us. One plotter, Manssor Arbabsiar, a naturalized U.S. citizen who holds American and Iranian passports, met with a person he thought was associated with a Mexican drug cartel to offer a down payment for the hit. Instead, he met with a Drug Enforcement Administration informant.

Some day, we will have to deal with Iran. I don’t much like this, but I sure don’t want to wait until their nuke program matures.
This is total BS.
Wag the dog when your reelection chances look bleak.
Clinton did it with Bosnia and OK City.
When Rats are cornered they’ll do anything to hold on to power.
Dangerous times ahead.
Unfortunately we can’t believe a word of anything that may fall out of this administrations cakehole. So we are paralyzed from making any decision regarding any action to take in response to something that may or may not have happened in whole or in part.
Personally, I don’t believe any of it.
We are at war with Eastasia, we have always been at war with Eastasia
This is a very serious situation. Since Iran knows how weak our president is, they are increasing their nuclear capabilities and becoming bolder. I PRAY that God protects us from this evil regime. At least until we can oust King Obamao.
If they really did this, send a drone ,cap a mullah,dare them to try it again,tell everybody else to suck an egg.
I can’t believe people are beliving this BS Iran stuff.
Completely wag-the-dog. ObaMugabe knew for 4 months, then chose THAT day to make this all public.
And it was allll soooooo ham-handed —this was not the mark of terror with a true STATE sponsor.
This stinks to high-heaven —it’s all lies.
I’m not worried about it AT ALL.
Sorry, but IBD is dead-on here. Iran poses an enormous and very clear and present threat. That the current occupant of the white house is ineffectual is yet more part of the problem.
The government no doubt has a super secret program that sends plutonium to Iranian agents so they can track it back to the bomb builders in Iran. /s
I seriously fail to believe this bunch anymore. Wag the dog.
The Doggie Wag War as history will call it.
You’re giving Obama a lot more credit that he could possibly deserve. He’s simply not that good. He couldn’t plan his way out of a wet paper bag, and somehow now he’s some kind of uber-effective evil genius?
LOL... I don’t think so.
Iran really is a serious problem. A bigger problem for us is that we’re stuck with this loser of a CINC at a very critical time.
I’m with you. Iran is on easy street right now. Less than two years from getting a nuke and *nobody* is hassling them. Why in the world would they risk doing anything that could bring the heat down on them when they’re so close to becoming untouchable?
And a Mexican drug cartel is going to get involved in assassinating a Saudi ambassador for $1.5 million? That is chump change for them and what possible upside is there to doing it?
It’s all just too implausible.
Until you consider who's President, who's Attorney General...and the growing prominence of Fast & Furious.
All of a sudden, it's very plausible...
I don’t think a “Wag The Dog” scenario has been totally eliminated. Unfortunately, government people have lied so frequently that people no longer have confidence in them.
Might as well get some practice, kill of a few hundred thousand arabs, they won’t mind, after all they each have 72 virgins in waiting. Invite an
arab leader to the WH, tell him here push this button, watch this screen, and poof Mecca disappears in a nuclear cloud, now this button, and poof Medina, same thing. Repeat as necessary until you run out of poofs.
Well that assumes that like most underworld the cartels first allegiance is to the bottom line. They know that if they involve themselves with the Iranians it would interfere
with cash flow and bring heat in the form of some very unpleasant actors from our SOFs. So, I’m inclined to consider this a manufactured ‘crisis’ unless a confirmation from an Iranian source is forthcoming.
