I do love it when this most egocentric president tells other countries what would be in their interests. Especially our sworn enemies.
Here, as he so often does, President Obama assumes Iran’s leaders care about stuff that Americans do, like jobs. And he tries to tell the Iranians that it’s bad policy to be projecting its power around the Middle East, which Iran has in fact had much success doing in the absence of American leadership.
He doesn’t get that they want to lead a worldwide Caliphate. He thinks they’re just like us. They’re not. They understand force, not empty words convincing them to be weak like us.
Obama has a lot of nerve to say Iran’s actions isolate it, when their aggressiveness just resulted in a deal with Obama allowing them to create nuclear weapons and releasing billions of dollars in funds for their use – while holding out the promise of billions more in oil sales.
“Chanting Death to America does not create jobs or make Iran more secure,” Obama said. “If Iran chooses a different path, that would be good for the security of the region, good for the Iranian people, and good for the world.”
