What would Obama do on January 21, 2009 if he is elected the first Black President? He is a man uncomfortable making decisions, with no vision of the America, he’d like to create and no policy mandates from the people, a man who loves the adulation more than the work, and America will drift rudderlessly. The job of the President of the United States involves confrontation, at home and abroad. Yet Senator Obama eschews confrontation at nearly every turn. He avoids confrontation on the campaign trail by saying that he is above running a negative campaign. He avoids confrontation by not saying publicly that his wife mis-spoke. He plans to avoid confrontation by sitting down and making-nice with leaders of rogue nations instead of standing up to them. Obama’s stated willingness to negotiate one on one with the leaders of Iran, Syria, North Korea, Venezuela, and Cuba also demonstrates that he doesn’t understand the responsibilities associated with holding the most powerful job in the world.
While Obama will be busy working on his “Change”, the biggest national sponsor of terrorism in the world– Iran– is moving step by step toward building a nuclear bomb.The point when they get that bomb will be the point of no return. Iran’s nuclear bomb will be the terrorists’ nuclear bomb– and they can make 9/11 look like child’s play. All the options that are on the table right now will be swept off the table forever. Our choices will be to give in to whatever the terrorists demand– however outrageous those demands might be– or to risk seeing American cities start disappearing in radioactive mushroom clouds. All the things we are preoccupied with today, from the price of gasoline to health care to global warming, will suddenly no longer matter. The Prime Minister of Israel says “We will attack Iran if Nuke Program continues” Does Obama agree with Israel stand in attacking Iran?
These is an interesting issue, Where do they stand on Iran..
Obama says Iran is a threat to the region, and U.S. must retain a military option in dealing with the Tehran regime. But says he would hold direct meetings with adversaries such as Iran. “It is important that we use language that signals to the rest of the world that we are shifting from the sort of cowboy diplomacy, or lack of diplomacy, that we’ve seen out of George Bush” Was not present for the vote on the bill declaring the Iranian Revolutionary Guards a terrorist group, but said he opposed it because it might be used by the Bush administration to justify an attack.
Mc Cain, Says a U.S. attack on Iran might be necessary because “there’s only one thing worse than military action against Iran, and that is a nuclear-armed Iran.” Says he prays that the standoff can be resolved. Criticizes Iran for training Iraqi militants. Cites Iran as a country where religious persecution occurs. Was on campaign trail and did not vote on bill declaring Iran’s Revolutionary Guards a terrorist group, but supported the bill, which passed easily. Caused a stir early in the campaign by singing “Bomb bomb bomb, bomb bomb Iran” to the tune of the Beach Boys’ “Barbara Ann.”
Hillary Clinton, calls for diplomacy over Iran’s nuclear program, but believes all options, including a military attack, must be on the table in the confrontation with the regime of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad (above). Says that if Iran were to develop nuclear weapons and “foolishly consider launching an attack on Israel, we would be able to totally obliterate them.” Voted to declare the Iranian Revolutionary Guards a terrorist group, saying such a move would increase diplomatic pressure on Iran.
Obama, has made clear that withdrawing from Iraq will “make the American people safer” and that he would institute an immediate withdrawal, even if our commanders on the ground tell him such a course would be disastrous.Obama’s unspeakably arrogant position is embarrassingly wrongheaded, and McCain must continue to articulate that our effort in Iraq is central to our successful prosecution of the war. Indeed, it’s difficult to understand how reasonable people can divorce one from the other — yet the entire Democratic Party do so routinely.
John McCain urged Barack Obama to join him in visiting Iraq, something Obama hasn’t done since 2006, when he declared the war lost. This is exactly what McCain ought to be doing: taking it to Obama on an issue that appears to favor Obama but in reality favors McCain. Democratic have succeeded in convincing much of the public that the war is a failure and that we must withdraw immediately. The propaganda effort has been so relentless that this perception remains to a great extent, even after the dramatic turnaround occasioned by the surge. But this is primarily because the media do their best to suppress any good news coming out of Iraq.A significant majority of Americans understand we do have a major stake in Iraq and that you can’t precipitously withdraw without negative consequences. Significant number of Americans are open-minded and receptive to the notion that our national interest demands we remain there until we establish substantial order and that Iraqi security forces be able to maintain that order upon our withdrawal.
The problem for Obama and Democrats on Iraq is that their worldview doesn’t permit them to view Iraq favorably, facts be damned, because they don’t believe in the mission, and they don’t understand we US are truly fighting the enemy in Iraq.Iraq — as al-Qaida makes clear every day — is the primary battleground in the war on terror, and we are defeating al-Qaida there as we speak. Obama and company insist against reality that for all practical purposes, our enemy is focused solely in Afghanistan, presumably because the 9/11 hijackers trained there.
