Iran's Nuclear Coup

Editorial - May 18th, 2010 - Wall Street Journal

What a fiasco. That's the first word that comes to mind watching Mahmoud Ahmadinejad raise his arms yesterday with the leaders of Turkey and Brazil to celebrate a new atomic pact that instantly made irrelevant 16 months of President Obama's "diplomacy." The deal is a political coup for Tehran and possibly delivers the coup de grace to the West's half-hearted efforts to stop Iran from acquiring a nuclear bomb.

Full credit for this debacle goes to the Obama Administration and its hapless diplomatic strategy.

The certainty of this fiasco was predictable. In fact many accomplished American statesmen have predicted it. Unfortunately they don't get noticed because they are conservatives and the press in America hates conservatives.

If you were to check with the average person on the street, President Barack Obama is doing a great job and America is held in high esteem now that George W. Bush is gone. Reality does not agree. All over the world dictators are moving to confront what they see as a gutless and enfeebled America.

Does anyone think North Korea would have sunk a South Korean ship before Obama became President? Israel is more exposed than she has been since 1967, all thanks to the hostility of President Barack Obama. We are looking at war in the middle east, and quite probably nuclear war. Thanks Obama. You are proving to be as disastrous for American interests as anyone could have expected.
