Timetable Changes, Threats Remain

  • Empty threats… The Iranian regime doesn’t fear or respect the current US president, and therefore his threats are mere war of words and don’t mean much to the mad men running Iran. I’d like to see some action now.

    The only reason Obama would attack Iran, was if he felt it would help his re-election.

    This President cannot get elected without a solid, secure liberal/left base – from the intelligentsia to the grass roots – behind him. There is simply no way he’ll risk losing that base with an attack on Iran. And everything he has done over the past year has been driven by electoral politics. Including Christmas shopping with Bo.

    After his re-election (yes, I believe he will win another four year) is another question.

    In fact, like Nixon going to China, he may be the best option for such a act since a President Romney couldn’t carry it out.

    “The Obama administration has not distanced itself from what came close to an open threat of attack if Iran does not satisfy the US that it has halted its nuclear program. The threats apparently stand.”

    My offer to sell you a nice bridge in Queens still stands as well.

    I do hope that your computer has a good security software installed, to filter out those fabulous and apparently very legit Nigerian deals.
