In his first news conference after re-election, President Obama said there was still time for a diplomatic solution on Irans nuclear program and that Iran could enjoy peaceful nuclear power if it meets international obligations.
Diplomacy has failed and international sanctions, though having some effect, have not persuaded the radicals ruling Iran to stop their illicit nuclear program. The economic screws must be tightened.
Iranian leaders did not hide their satisfaction in Mr. Obamas re-election and the prospect of more negotiations, which, in their view, will buy them more time to develop nuclear weapons.
Professor Pirooz Mojtahedzade, who teaches political geography at Tehran University, said in a recent interview, Perhaps one reason for Obamas success in his re-election campaign was his opposition to the warmongering Prime Minister [Benjamin Netanyahu] of Israel, which officially eliminated the effect of the Zionist lobby in presidential elections, and the result of this is that the Israel lobby will not have much effect on U.S. politics in the next four years.

Duh, I don’t get it. Iran should be REALLY fearful of Benghazi-Coward Obama.
I guess Iran really wasn’t very fond of their hero, Osama bin Laden after all.
That is a ‘Foolish’ bet.
A Fool hath said in his heart, there is no God.
Israel, as a country, may cease, but Israel as Gods people, well, I wouldn’t bet on that at all.
