If President Obama isn’t trying to mislead the country, then that’s a really sad commentary on his intellectual prowess, or lack thereof.
Along with calling the U.S. “a little bit lazy” in the business arena, President Obama apparently thinks that international sanctions against Iran are really working. Worse yet, he wants to consult China and Russia before going forward with any new plans to dissuade the hardcore Islamist nation from building a nuclear bomb.
I really hope for his sake that he’s really just nefarious and not that nearly that stupid at all. Because all of the available evidence strongly suggests – if not shouts from the mountaintops – that Iran could care less about its international law… and that Russia and China are comfy, cozy, slutty in its bed.
Haven’t we had enough proof by now that Russia and China not only really dislike the U.S. but are also going so far as to help Iran by way of selling them weapons… despite the supposedly airtight sanctions?
Haven’t we also had enough proof that Iran doesn’t respect anything but force? When we offer hands of friendship, professionalism or even common courtesy, President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and his regime simply bite our hands like rabid dogs.
Case in point: Iranian Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi says he see “no more point in making additional concessions” regarding his country’s hotly contested nuclear program, even though he and his haven’t made any notable concessions throughout this entire process!
If anything, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says, Iran is even closer to producing an atom bomb than everybody would like to think.
And yet we keep relying on the same methods to woo the hate-mongering, reality-denying, tyrannical regime from the dark side, begging a very simple but very important question: Why?
Honestly, I’m not sure if it would be better for the United States if the answer was “Because Obama is an incompetent fool” or “Because Obama is out to destroy the America most of us know, love and vastly benefit from.”
Again, for his sake, I’m hoping that it’s the former.
