Obama Administration Failure on Iran

The Obama administration has either been blind to Iran’s continuing escalation in aggression or still considers its original (campaign) policy of talking Iran out of stated intentions to be valid. Unable to focus on more than one problem at a time (and even doing that belatedly), the administration’s neglect has allowed Ahmadinejad to strut on the international stage like a serious world leader rather than the thug that he most certainly is.

Intelligence specialist Fred Fleitz writes in the Wall Street Journal that “U.S. intelligence leaders are mired in denial about Iran’s program to develop and build nuclear weapons… (and) unwilling to conduct a proper assessment of the Iranian nuclear issue”. The International Atomic Energy Agency has new information pointing to Iran’s military intentions of its nuclear program. This comes on the heels of Iran’s announcement of plans to build advanced centrifuge machines.

The French Foreign Ministry recently spoke out claiming that the Iranian nuclear program had “no credible civilian application. It also acknowledged that “This is a new violation of six security council resolutions and 10 resolutions by the council of governors of the International Atomic Energy Agency”. (France taking a harder line than the US on Iran should keep all awake at night.) The impotency of international efforts to thwart Iran makes it imperative for the US to lead. That has not happened, and Iran now has the advantage.

Iran announced plans to expand its naval warships into the Atlantic as it has already done into the Mediterranean Sea. These warships will be equipped with cruise missiles having a range of 125 miles. Rockets fired at our troops in Iraq have now been shown to be coming from Iran, confirming long-held suspicions about Iran’s involvement with the Iraqi Shiite insurgents. Iran is also claiming to have successfully shot down US drones over its nuclear facilities. The saber is rattling louder and louder.

As the Obama administration focuses on re-election political issues, Iran continues to solidify its threats. Unfortunately, Iran’s intentions are much clearer than Obama’s and we are all in more danger.

      We’ll publish your comment, since it doesn’t include foul, racist language as some of your other posts have, but that doesn’t mean we agree.
