Standing on a podium amid banners boasting “America Cannot Do a Damn Thing,” Iran’s supreme leader said Wednesday that President Obama no longer has the guts for battle.

Ayatollah Ali Khamenei proclaimed in a Tehran taunting speech that “military attack is not a priority for Americans now.”

“They realize that military attacks are as dangerous or even more dangerous for the assaulting country as they are for the country attacked,” the ayatollah said.

Tehran, Iran’s largest city is a bustling metropolis that spreads out much like Los Angeles, except it’s inhabited by iranian. It is also Iran’s largest city and hub of commerce.

Couple a perception of weakness and unwillingness to use force with a new perception of willingness to negotiate with / appease terrorists and what do you get? I'm guessing lefties come to the conclusion that weakness = safety because they will no longer consider us scary. I don't think that's how it plays out.

Guess our government is waiting for Iran’s nukes to be stockpiled and exploded over population centers.

Then, of course, congress will make speeches aplenty, while Obama wrings his hands.

Maybe we should send SOS Kerry over to push another Hillary "reset button". That worked so well with Russia. Gawd, these people in DC are children.
