It is certainly true that Obama has made many foreign policy errors, including not supporting the Iranian democrats in 2009, who were revolting against their Nazi-esque leader, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Also, the recent criticism of Obama’s apology to Afghan President Hamid Karzai for the destruction of a few Korans — after which dozens were murdered, including two American soldiers in retaliation — is more than legitimate. But the president’s term in office is not over yet, and a strike on Iran would render his past foreign policy errors more trivial by comparison.
Next week, President Obama will be speaking at the AIPAC policy conference in Washington D.C., and don’t be surprised if he declares his intention to visit Israel for the first time as president, in order to coordinate with Netanyahu in a strategy designed to halt Iran’s nuclear program; and what better strategy than to take out the bulk of Iran’s nuclear capability in an attack using only American military personnel.
It is true that an attack on Iran runs many risks, including starting a wider conflict in the Middle-East, and increasing the price of gas. But letting Iran get nukes, or letting Netanyahu deal with it on his own, would be worse, as an Israeli attack on Iran would spur much more negative consequences.
It might be a long shot, but the GOP should not underestimate this president with their fiery, politically-charged rhetoric, as the Iranian story has not played out yet. Instead, the Republicans should focus their attacks on the president’s abysmal domestic record — as they’ve been doing — and encourage him to do the right thing regarding Iran; rather than declare that he has already failed on this critical issue, because he has not…yet.
In fact, now might be the best time to consider military action, while Syria, Iran’s closest ally in the Middle East, is occupied with subjugating its civilian population with indiscriminate and overwhelming military force.
You think Obama is unwilling to play this ace of spades?
