Editor’s Note: This is maddening enough to make me speechless. If Obama knew anything about war strategy, he wouldn’t have pulled our troops out of Iraq so fast. But something tells me I am even wrong about that.
The good news is under the leadership of President Barack Hussein Obama, this nation’s global stature has increased dramatically.
The bad news is this nation is Iran.
President Obama previously told Iran’s terrorist-supporting regime “if you like your current nuclear program, you can keep it.” Last week he all but told the Iranians “if you like our new Iraq, you can have it.”
By urging “Iraq’s neighbors” (see that as Iran) to bear at least some of the responsibility for squashing the Al Qaeda-inspired rebellion against Iraq’s fledgling government, the President of these United States continues to elevate the legitimacy of the enemy regime in Iran for reasons known only to Allah.
Of course, the Iranians have gotten the message they’re now at the big boy table loud and clear.
Iranian President Hassan Rouhani proudly says his country is ready to help Iraq because — get this — Iran has “no option but to confront terrorism.” You can’t make this stuff up. They may hate Israel in Tehran, but even the politicians there embody a good Yiddish word like “chutzpah.”
Rouhani even went so far as to say his military would be willing to serve alongside the United States should it come to that: “When the U.S. takes action against the militants, then one can think about cooperation.”
Right, because that’s what every American parent hopes for their children. That they would grow up, join the military, and fight and die alongside those pledged to impose, enforce, and defend the Shariah law found within Iran’s constitution. When I was a kid, Democrats held hearings to criticize a Republican administration that was thought to have exchanged “arms for hostages” with Iran. Now this Democratic president is asking Iran to clean up the mess he helped to make. Those Democrats sure do like to evolve.
The Iranians are happy to oblige.
