Iran Calling Obama - No Surprise

It should be no surprise that the new "moderate" leader of Iran called Socialist President Obama.  After the debacle in Syria as a result of Obama's on again, off again foreign policy, the Iranians figure they are dealing with weakest President since Jimmy Carter and we all know the end of that story.   It is clear that the Iranians are intent on building nuclear weapons.  All they need is the time to make them a reality.   They also know that once they have nuclear weapons and the capability to deliver them, the odds of American, or Western action to destroy them become much less.  They look to North Korea and Pakistan as their model.  

Iran is playing Obama for a sucker.  The Iranians will talk and talk and talk as they have been doing for more than 20 years, while at the same time putting all the pieces in place to make the bomb.   If Obama has a brain, which seems doubtful as each day goes by,  he will give the Iranians 3 months to put up or shut up, since they are probably not more than a year or two away from having the bomb.  Since the Russians and North Koreans are selling Iran the missiles they need to deliver nuclear weapons, they are not far away from having a serious nuclear capability.   We can't wait any longer. 

It is either destroy Iranian capability now, or be prepared for a nuclear arms race in the Middle East.  The Israeli's already have nuclear weapons.   If we can't stop the Iranians from building theirs, we should give the Israeli's nuclear powered submarines to deliver their nuclear weapons.   And, Saudi Arabia will want to become a nuclear power if Iran goes nuclear to maintain the balance of power in the region.   We may need to help make that happen.  We then must build a missile defense system all around Iran including in Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Jordon, Israel and Eastern Europe.   And, of course, we must make it clear to the Iranians that any nuclear weapons fired by them on any of our Allies will result in a full retaliatory response by the United States destroying their country in the process.  

Unfortunately, there are crazies in Iran who would welcome complete annihilation because they believe their Mufti (Messiah of sorts, not Jesus) will return at the end of the world.   In any case, it is either destroy Iran's nuclear capability soon, or face these alternatives.  Highly doubtful that weak kneed, indecisive Obama will follow either logical course of action.
