I watched the Israeli Prime Minister's speech to congress yesterday. It was hard not to contrast him with our President. Benjamin Netanyahu is a former special forces officer, decorated not with "I been there" awards but medals won in combat. Barrack Hussein Obama is a Chicago "Machine" politician who owes his presidency to nothing more than being black and the Democratic lock on minority votes.
Netanyahu is brusque and sometimes offends people by straight speaking. Obama is oily, pompous, self centered, and only vaguely aware of anything going on outside Washington or the golf course.
The Israeli cares about preserving his country and his people. Obama cares about preserving his power and his party. That's it.
There's the world as it is, and the world as it should be. Unfortunately, Obama and his coterie of lackeys in D.C. don't know the difference. The fact that the Israeli Prime Minister pointed out the discrepancies between what Obama is doing and what he should be doing has unleashed a barrage of vitriol from the Democrats. Obama, sulking in the oval office, avows that he didn't even watch the speech. Hail Nero!
We have a good, strong military. The core of the country is still relatively strong. If only we had leadership, any leadership, at the top. We "negotiated" with North Korea until they'd built the bomb and then we started trying to buy them off with food and oil, just like the Byzantines tried to buy off the Islamists. It didn't work for them, and it hasn't worked for us. But what happens when you can't buy off the people with the bomb?
I realize the Democrats thrive on "negotiated solutions" in which they give up whatever they have to in order to obtain a temporary and illusionary "peace" which they can then plaster all over the news in sound bites. But each time they do that, they start the "negotiation" cycle over from a weakened position. The theory seems to be that as long as the crisis doesn't blow up while Obama is in the White House, it doesn't matter. Alice in Wonderland logic carried to it's ultimate expression of lunacy.
Anyone who thinks for a minute that the Iranians won't use nuclear weapons if they get them is sadly mistaken. Iran is a theocracy, where decision making is based on religion and mysticism. Common, everyday logic does not apply.
Talking with the Iranians won't stop their work on nuclear weapons and delivery systems because they lie. Deceit is an admirable skill in their world view, a tool in the great work of implementing the World Wide Caliphate. They know telling the West what it wants to hear makes it easier for Western leaders to hide their heads in the sand and do nothing.
I hope everybody got a chance to hear Netanyahu's speech, and that people have seen the furious reaction of the White House and the Democrats as the reaction of liars being unmasked that it is. If nothing changes, then we'll all get to see who was right about the Iranians within the next ten years.

When Israel took out the Osirak Reactor Saddam Hussein was building in Iraq, that solved the problem. Does anyone believe "negotiating" with Saddam would have done the same?
