Check out my column today in The American Thinker:
Fatal Thinking, Pamela Geller
The conventional thinking around the Beltway and its perimeter is that we still have time to address Iran's nukes. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, however, said Wednesday that "the Zionist regime and its backers" (that means the U.S. -- apparently he hasn't been keeping up with Obama's harassment of Israel) "cannot do a damn thing" to stop the Iranian nuclear program.
Obama is too busy stealing from working people, from the private sector, and from our children in order to fund his socialist revolution to be concerned with national security. National security is just so last century. The individual built; the collectivist dismantles.
The idea of watered-down sanctions is completely useless. Obama is saying something, anything, simply for the sake of saying something, anything. Obama is prepared to live with a nuclear Iran. Would Obama have accepted a nuclear Nazi Germany?
Back in 2007, George W. Bush was for all intents and purposes cut off at the knees. Whatever plan he may have had for de-nuking the brutal jihadist regime in Iran was all but scuttled when the National Intelligence Estimate issued a fallacious report on Iran's cessation of their nuclear program. It was a thinly veiled attempt to change the direction on how we were going to handle Iran's nukes. And it clearly succeeded.
That was an end-run around the Bush administration, and it easily provided the much-needed excuse to everyone on the security council, the EU3 (France, Germany, and the U.K.), the Democrats, and everyone who had been loath to take any action on the development of Iran's nuclear weapons. And of course, the New York Times and the left-wing media hungrily devoured the bait.
It was treachery at the highest levels of government -- an attempt that had stalled until their man seized power. Back in January 2008, I warned of this treachery and predicted that Obama, if elected, would betray our ally Israel. And now here we are.
