Obama ran on a platform of having “nice” conversations with the Iranian rulers; and when elected, Obama immediately apologized to Iran for America’s “imagined wrongs.” This signaled to the Iranians that Obama would be a weak President and that it would be “open season” on America.
Now Iran has brought our drown down by spoofing its GPS system; Obama refused to allow our military to blow up the drone; and Iran is taking the drone apart piece by piece to capture our remote-control signals and communication mechanisms used by our U. S. control center.
On 1.1.12, Iran announced it had produced its first nuclear fuel rod, a feat of engineering which could lead to the production of nuclear weapons.
On 1.2.12, Iran began testing its surface-to-surface cruise missile in international waters near the Strait of Hormuz.
When Obama decided to threaten Iran with sanctions against its central bank, Iran said they may close the Strait of Hormuz, keeping one-fifth of the world’s oil supply from being shipped from the Persian Gulf countries to the rest of the world.
On 1.8.12 Iran reported that they have begun uranium enrichment at a bunker-like facility that is shielded from airstrikes by 300 feet of mountain rock.
Associated Press – Iran reportedly begins uranium enrichment at underground site amid threats
TEHRAN, Iran – Iran has begun uranium enrichment at a new underground site built to withstand possible airstrikes, a leading hard-line newspaper reported Sunday in another show of defiance against Western pressure to rein in Tehran’s nuclear program.
The operations at the bunker-like facility south of Tehran, reported by the Kayhan daily newspaper, are small in comparison to Iran’s main enrichment site. But the centrifuges at the underground labs are considered more efficient and are shielded from aerial surveillance and protected against airstrikes by up to 300 feet (90 metres) of mountain rock.
Uranium enrichment is at the core of the international standoff over Iran’s nuclear program. The U.S. and its allies fear Iran could use its enrichment facilities to develop high-grade nuclear material for warheads.”
What is the Obama administration’s response to this very disturbing news? They are telling Israel absolutely not to take any unilateral military action against Iran’s nuclear program. I wonder if Obama (or Ron Paul) would feel any differently if Mexico or Canada had nuclear weapons on their borders targeted at the United States.
Bottomline: Obama and Ron Paul are two of a kind. They are pretending that the Iranian danger does not exist. If Ron Paul had been in Obama’s seat, Ron Paul would have said, “Iran, you just do whatever you want to do because Israel is not our problem. In fact, Iran, you deserve to have a nuclear weapons program of your own so that you can stand up to Israel. We in America will not step in and do anything to help Israel because we have financial worries of our own.
Were Iran to place a drone with nuclear capabilities right over Washington, D. C., I wonder what Obama and Ron Paul would do then.
Another very disturbing development is that the Obama administration (with Ron Paul’s support) has recently announced to the entire world that America will no longer be able to fight two sustained ground wars at the same time.
This is like telling the Zetas, the Crips, the Aryan Brotherhood, the Gambinos, the Bloodz, the Mexican Mafia, and Hell’s Angels that we only have enough policemen to counter two of these gangs at one time!
Surely informed voters across this country will do the right thing and support a Republican candidate who understands the realities of our world situation.
