I just wanted to update you on what I think is probably the most critical issue facing the Republic: The Mullahbomb.
I am firmly of the belief that if Social Security indeed is not there for most of us when we retire, it will not be because of the retirement age. It will be because the Iranians have destroyed our country.
There is no allowing Iran to get the bomb. It is an existential threat. I don’t consider myself alarmist. But the idea of these lunatics wielding nuclear weapons is, well, decidedly alarming.
The leading world powers have just agreed to slap Iran on the wrist in the wake of an International Atomic Energy Agency report showing that Iran’s nuclear program continues and is edging close to success.
Obama could not convince the Russians or the Chinese to go along with tougher sanctions. And yet, he clings to the hope that somehow sanctions will work. White House officials declare that the ones that have already been imposed are indeed working. Which is pretty much like waking up in the morning and insisting it’s four o’clock in the afternoon.
I don’t believe President Obama is seriously considering military action. He likes to drive from the back seat. Which means the Israelis will have to do this. Which means it won’t be done nearly as well as if we did it.
