Obama Convinced Iran is Very Afraid of Him

Tremble before his might

Tremble before his might

Of course Obama thinks that Iran and Syria take him seriously. No doubt, Obama believes that Putin is hiding under his bed in fear of his next phone call. If space aliens arrived and leveled Washington D.C., he would be convinced, as he was dissolving into ionized plasma, that the aliens were only doing it out of fear of him.

Obama once said that he could do everyone else’s job better than they can. This is what happens when you ingest toxic amounts of self-esteem with no reality check.

Obama argued that American adversaries, such as Iran, Syria and Russia itself, still believe that he is capable of using force to advance American interests, despite his reluctance to strike Syria last year after President Bashar al-Assad crossed Obama’s chemical-weapons red line.

“We’ve now seen 15 to 20 percent of those chemical weapons on their way out of Syria with a very concrete schedule to get rid of the rest,” Obama told me. “That would not have happened had the Iranians said, ‘Obama’s bluffing, he’s not actually really willing to take a strike.’ If the Russians had said, ‘Ehh, don’t worry about it, all those submarines that are floating around your coastline, that’s all just for show.’ Of course they took it seriously! That’s why they engaged in the policy they did.”

It’s easy to fool Obama. All you have to do is play on his oversized ego.

Putin played Obama by using Syria to open the door to Iran. Syria is delaying turning over its weapons, but it doesn’t matter. Syria was a stalking horse for Iran. Its agreement convinced Obama that Iran was now ready to deal. And that got Iran a whole lot of money and time to go nuclear.

And the whole thing was set up by a Russian guy named Vlad who played the Chicago Boy Wonder like a trumpet.

I returned to this particularly sensitive subject. “Just to be clear,” I asked, “You don’t believe the Iranian leadership now thinks that your ‘all options are on the table’ threat as it relates to their nuclear program — you don’t think that they have stopped taking that seriously?”

Obama answered: “I know they take it seriously.”

“We have a high degree of confidence that when they look at 35,000 U.S. military personnel in the region that are engaged in constant training exercises under the direction of a president who already has shown himself willing to take military action in the past, that they should take my statements seriously,” he replied.

“And the American people should as well, and the Israelis should as well, and the Saudis should as well.”

How does Obama know they take it seriously? Well there are a bunch of soldiers in the region under the direction of a guy who sent a few planes to bomb Libya, and then drew a red line on Syria that he ran away from and allowed Putin to stampede into Ukraine while retreating from Iraq and Afghanistan.

How could Iran not take Obama seriously?

“I’m the commander in chief of the most powerful military on earth, I think I have pretty good judgment as to whether or not this problem can be best solved militarily. And what I’m saying is it’s a lot better if we solve it diplomatically.”

How has that good judgment worked out in Egypt, Libya, Tunisia, Afghanistan and Iraq so far?

    Does he believe his own crap or is it just for the consumption of the American public to reassure his partisans, keep pundits busy and try to fool the rest of us?

    That last paragraph sounded like a kid who brags his dad could beat up your dad.
    If Narcissism can ever be used to fuel autos Obama will be richer than hell.

    “…they should take my statements seriously,” he replied.

    “And the American people should as well, and the Israelis should as well, and the Saudis should as well.”

    Well, Gaddafi thought so too. He wore outlandish multi-color scheme designer military uniforms surrounded by harems while living lavish parties. He used his military to have his way, because in his mind, he was the most important person on earth sucking air. On his final day he was discovered in a dusty culvert and summarily shot dead.

    By default, thanks to MSM propaganda, low-info heads and voter fraud we have barry. His metaphorical uniform consists of exceedingly long gold epitaphs adorned by populist consensus, silk bandoliers embellished with the metals of politically correct entitlement, and the multi-colors of a perverted society. His harem repugnantly includes the likes of Valerie Jarret, Susan Rice and Samantha Powers. Now the US military is his private Risk game army to pursue his personal agenda of having his way, because it’s all about him.

    Only this is the real deal, it’s not a game and he can’t hide in a culvert for long.

      Slight correction / amendment to your statement about Gaddafi:

      On his final day he was discovered in a dusty culvert, captured, a$s-raped, booted and then summarily shot dead.

      love how he includes the Isrealis should as well. Never miss an oppurtunity to threaten an ally.

        Or the American people.

    Obamao’s situation in terms of strength and credibility is similar to that of Humphrey Bogart in The Treasure of the Sierra Madre when he ran into Alfonso Bedoya and his gang of cutthroats at a watering hole in the film’s climactic scene. He couldn’t frighten a sick louse.

    Obama’s “judgment” is based on what military experience? None.

    I sincerely believe there is something wrong with anyone who has his total lack of experience making a statement like that.

    The problem with Obama is he truly believes he has the “judgment” to make all decisions better than anyone else. This is the mentality you get when someone has been given everything on a silver platter his entire life.

    No one fears O’Bozo, but intimidation is another story!

    That Obama believes the Iranians and the Russians fear him, has to be Obama’s most delusional assessment yet. Then his fact-challenged, bizarre characterization of Abbas as a “peacenik” — Obama is living in an alternate universe. And to think this evil, mendacious incompetent is president of the United States!

  • UCSPanther

    For some reason, Obama’s posturing reminds me of this:

    Obama has devalued the deterrent effect of American military capability in the world. Obama promised when he is president the U.S. would lead “the world toward a new era of global cooperation.” He pledged “to rebuild and construct the alliances and partnerships necessary to meet common challenges and confront common threats. Today, it is clear that this president has done exactly the opposite. Tragically, our allies now even laugh at us.
