Now that’s touching. Then why is President Obama negotiating a deal with Iran which, by his own reckoning, will within 15 years allow the Iranians a nuclear “breakout time” of a nanosecond?
Obama spoke to Israeli TV during an interview that is being broadcast there this week, according to The Blaze:
I can, I think, demonstrate, not based on any hope but on facts and evidence and analysis, that the best way to prevent Iran from having a nuclear weapon is a verifiable, tough agreement. A military solution will not fix it. Even if the United States participates, it would temporarily slow down an Iranian nuclear program but it will not eliminate it.
As usual, Obama presents the choice as between his deal and military action. He ignores Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu’s whole point, made during his address to Congress, which was that a tougher deal is necessary.
And how, BTW, does Obama know a massive military operation, coupled with sanctions, will not put and end to this? The infrastructure Iran has pieced together was very laboriously acquired and built over many years.
Obama was asked whether he could you imagine a scenario in which Netanyahu goes it alone with the military option:
What I can say is, to the Israeli people: I understand your concerns and I understand your fears.
Maybe he understands everyone’s fears. What he doesn’t understand is the patience and determination of the Iranians to build a nuclear weapon.
Here’s the video. There’s a bit of a Hebrew lesson involved, but the Obama remarks come up soon enough.
