Indeed, on our current course we are headed towards nuclear war in the Middle East. Iran is rapidly building a nuclear weapons capacity, and its leaders have openly said they will use the resulting weapons on Israel to “wipe it off the face of the earth.” Israel has their own nuclear stockpile and can be expected to respond in kind. For Iran’s governing fanatics, such a devastating war is part of their religious vision expected to usher in a new age of salvation.
So what are President Obama and our new ultraliberal leaders going to do to get us off this road to devastation? It would be foolish and irresponsible to just assume the Iranians could not possibly mean what they say, given the seriousness of the threat. And they have openly said they will not be deterred by the economic penalties of sanctions or the blandishments of economic rewards. If millions of Israelis are murdered by an Iranian nuclear attack under President Obama and his Congressional liberals, the political honeymoon will end quite abruptly.
Then there are the now often repeated statements of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad saying, “Imagine a world without both Israel and the United States. I tell you this is now possible.” What could he possibly mean by that?

The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
