Ahmadinejad Chief of staff, Mashaei, suggests that Iran can destroy Israel, the “Zionist Regine” as he calls it, in one week.
With vast United States force in the region, will the United States President, Barak Hussein Obama, inform Ahmadinejad that an attack on Israel will be paramount to an attack on the United States? And, will the United States President inform Iran that the United States could do away with Iran on a shorter order than Iran can even dream of destroying Israel?
Or, will President Obama, with his strong Islamic sympathies, roots, and instincts, simply let the Islamic Republic of Iran continue its belligerent talk about annihilating Israel, go unanswered?
For President Obama to respond to Iran now, while there is still a major presence of United States military resources in the region, would be credible; to wait until US starts to withdraw troops from the region, and let Iran continue with its boasting ,could finally lead to an open confrontation between Iran and Israel. If a war did break, it will likely be a war in which Israel, with its Nukes, superior air and sea power, is likely to win! Winning such war, however, could not be accomplished without significant cost to Israel, and the stability of the region, and perhaps to the stability of whole world.
Will President Obama demonstrate world leadership and respond to Iran’s newest threat? Or, will Barak Hussein Obama, as he has done in the past, simply let Iran continue to ridicule him, and the United States, at every turn?
