WE AT THE ALEXANDRIA DAILY POOP ARE DEFINITELY NOT AMONG THE ADMIRERS OF "PRESIDENT" BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA. However, credit where it is due is imperative; and Obama's calling out of Iran - and importantly his statement that military action is "not off the table" shows that he at least realizes what very hot water looks like.
We are not at all convinced that Obama's concerns are for the United States, however. Obama is as much concerned about his image in Europe - and perhaps a bit more - than he is about his image in these United States. And Europe is terrified at the prospect of a nuclear-armed Iran, and well they should be. It is much easier to hit Paris or Berlin from Iran with a missile than it is the United States. Whatever his motivation, however, Mahmoud Ahmadi-Nejad has thrown down a gauntlet at "President" Obama's feet. And though we view him with - to put it mildly - skepticism - we are pleased that he has responded forcefully enough to state that military action is one of the tools in his kit.
We cannot help but wonder but what being exposed to what being the President of the United States really means might just make this boy wonder into a man. A nuclear-armed Iran might just decide to give nuclear devices to Al-Qaeda, And Al-Qaeda just might decide to explode one in Obama's beloved Chicago. Or, they might decide to blow up Podunk, Idaho. Either way he would be damaged beyond repair, and for that matter so would the DemonRat Party.
But to threaten, however mildly, the possibility of military action by the Commander in Chief of the world's most superior armed force is a profound thing. Consider what Obama said and consider the consequenses of anti-Iranian military action. The possible closing of the Straits of Hormuz, through which so much of the globe's energy passes. Something even nastier than World War Three could result. And into this we elected a jejune moron because people were getting laid off work??
Well he had damned well better wise up fast. We find it admitable that Obama has picked up the gauntlet thrown at his feet. What he does next will affect us all. We may all regret his ascention to the White House. But there is a possibility that in this caase he will do the right thing. We hope so. But we remain extremely skeptical.
