Have you Forgotten about Iran?

What's happening in Iran?
(Thomas Sowell) It is by no means guaranteed that this country will survive the long-run consequences of the disastrous decisions already made by Barack Obama, especially his pretense of stopping Iran's becoming a nuclear power. Obama may no longer be in office when those chickens come home to roost. 
If we wake up some morning and find some American city in radioactive ruins, will we connect the dots and see this as a consequence of voting to elect an unknown and untried man, for the sake of racial symbolism?
America's foreign policy machine has broken. And I don't think that we have it within ourselves to fix it at present.

Our foreign policy consists of one crisis after another one where we hambone up the situation or ignore it while it gets immeasurably worse. Nowhere is this more clear than with our handling of the Iranian nuclear proliferation situation.

ISIS is only a sideshow to the real problem that is Iranian nuclear ambition.

Let's look at the disconnect between what the paper tiger says and what it does:


Yes I know that Joe (Slow Joe) Biden is a clown and that he's just clowning around from his podium. The problem comes when the rest of the world knows it too.  It emboldens weird potentates in Iran, Iraq, Yemen and every other hell hole on the planet.

    1. Obama is not a leader and neither is Biden. Russia's Putin, ISIL, Afghanistan, China and IRAN all know that. It's painfully obvious that America has become a paper tiger.

  3. There IS no plan... it's failed crisis management, 24-48-72 hours later to say they are 'thinking' about it... sigh

    1. Then they change their minds...and then they change them again. Then they call for ASSETS, but there aren't the assets they thought 'should be available' because they cut them. You know how it goes.

  4. Joe is a dolt - there for a purpose. If obama were killed Joe would be president. No one wants to take the risk.

    1. There are other politicians who are as dumb as Biden - but I don't think that there are any dumber.
