The warning signs seem to be in front of the nation now. But will the Obama Administration notice, or just scoff at the next “JV” team in the Middle East?
“I go into this skeptical, I have been skeptical, and I am not going to make a final decision until that skepticism is fully relieved.” – Rep. Steve Israel
What does all this mean? One interpretation can be that the Obama Administrations international policy, especially in regard to the Middle East and specifically Iran, is convoluted and focused on the impression of success rather than the reality.
That’s what many people feel about most lies and misstatements by politicians. Since they don’t feel an impact, it doesn’t matter at all. I disagree. I believe that we need to make all politicians accountable, especially when they fail the public trust.
Nuclear weapons are a Pandora’s Box, once opened it cannot be closed. Deals that require no burden of proof or assurance of compliance from Iran are not deals, but false hope based on nothing but the naive expectations of the parties that involved.
President Obama has gained another term. A term in which he is no longer restrained by the prospect of re-election, allowing him to attempt to live up to the far-left liberal ideals he often stated before 2008.
In the end though a winner must be declared. Bob Schieffer introduced a calm yet turbulent debate that outclassed his peers by far. Few who watched the debate will be readily swayed from the position they already held. Those that have not made up their minds likely will still be unsure.
Of all those on stage for the 3rd presidential debate, Mitt Romney has the least to lose and the most to gain. President Obama is placed in the unenviable position that a weak performance virtually signals defeat, while a strong showing may only keep some polls even. Bob Schieffer, for his part, can only hope to regain the credibility of debate moderators.
There can be almost no greater signal of the disparity in the goals and doctrines of Israel and the U.S. than the comments being reported by the international news media currently.
The statement says several things at once. That Israel does not feel secure in its relationship with America, as they have never feared any blame that any nation would place on America or Israel before. The statement highlights that Israel feels that America is fearful or timid when it comes to Iran. The statement also makes clear that the Obama Administration is the key to their decision.
