Obama Surrenders to Iran


The current White House resident, B. Hussein Obama, is seriously considering surrendering US security to Iran according to the New York Times.

The Obama administration and its European allies are preparing proposals that would shift strategy toward Iran by dropping a longstanding American insistence that Tehran rapidly shut down nuclear facilities during the early phases of negotiations over its atomic program, according to officials involved in the discussions.

The proposals, exchanged in confidential strategy sessions with European allies, would press Tehran to open up its nuclear program gradually to wide-ranging inspection. But the proposals would also allow Iran to continue enriching uranium for some period during the talks, a sharp break in the approach taken by the Bush administration, which had demanded that Iran halt its enrichment activities.
(...)

If the United States and its allies allow Iran to continue enriching uranium for a number of months, or longer, the approach is bound to meet objections, from both conservatives in the United States and from the new Israeli government led by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
Netanyahu has already said that if Obama does not stop Iran's nuclear program, Israel will.

Mohamed El Baradei, director general of the United Nations’ International Atomic Energy Agency, said,

Mr. Obama has little choice but to accept the reality that Iran has "built 5,500 centrifuges," nearly enough to make two weapons’ worth of uranium each year.
"Okie-dokie" should not form the basis of US foreign policy. An ass-backwards faith based policy upon which we hang all our faith on the altruism of Iran doesn't do it for me either.

Obama's foreign policy: "Okey Dokey"! Exactly right, Indigo! It would be laughable except for the consequences of his so-called "strategy" (a misnomer if there ever was one) are so dire.

Indi, I don't mind in the least if you take some time off from bloging. I just want to know if you are OK. Don

I'm fine, Don. I've been having extreme pain in my left ankle recently and it's very distracting, hard to think, or focus. I'm better today after massive doses of I-can't-believe-it's-not-aspirin.

Actually, I was surprised that the last post was Monday, too. Doesn't seen that long ago.

I have an idea: Let's just GIVE the Iranians a couple of A Bombs and some missiles to launch them and then go and ask them to play nice with others.

Does anyone think that would work?

If not, then why are we just sitting here and going along with Iran's plan for nukes?

The Iranians admitted years ago that their entire strategy was to promise negotiations only as a stalling tactic.

They want nukes.

And there's not a thing Obama is prepared to do to stop them.

What a Neville Chamberlain he is!

MY GOD! Michael, are you suggesting the Iranians actually told the truth about their nuclear ambitions?
