An Islamic bomb is not a foregone conclusion. What is a foregone conclusion is that the United States will not use its military to attack and destroy Irans nuclear facilities. This is extremely shortsighted and unfortunate and means that Israel will attack in due course because when the time comes it will see itself as having no other choice. It also means that U.S. national security will be severely, perhaps fatally, compromised and that Americas credibility as leader and protector of the free world will be in tatters.
The United States won’t attack Iran because President Obama and the sycophants surrounding him are ignorant fools who live in a dream world and believe that Iran can be dissuaded from developing nuclear weapons through negotiations, threats and expressions of disapproval. The Israelis know better and will see a successful attack as necessary for their countrys survival. They may not in fact succeed whereas the U.S. almost assuredly would but nevertheless betting against them would be very unwise. An Islamic bomb is therefore not a foregone conclusion at all.
The Associated Press has reported that Obamas administration is “quietly laying the groundwork for long-range strategy that could be used to contain a nuclear-equipped Iran and deter its leaders from using atomic weapons.” That is a complete waste of time. Nothing could more clearly illustrate how out of touch with reality President Obama and his administration really are. If Iran gets nuclear weapons it will use them and to think otherwise is beyond belief. America may be deluded but Israel isn’t, which makes an Israeli pre-emptive attack a certainty.
The U.S. should be planning for the aftermath since it doesn’t have the sense to plan for anything else.
