That’s what our anti-nuke president is doing.
(Page 3 of 3)
Preposterously, President Obama’s real Iran policy has now metamorphosed from the “talking to Iran” he used to gull voters in 2008, into now it is America’s nukes that are unacceptable. What Obama has been telling us throughout all of his recent nuclear hoopla is that if we just demonstrate our “moral leadership” by standing down our nukes, Iran and even North Korea will do the same. But President Obama never explains what is moral about not defending America.
As the WSJ again explained on March 31:
Announcing the Russian deal, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said repeatedly that the treaty shows the likes of Iran and North Korea “that one of our top priorities is to strengthen the global nonproliferation regime.” And that somehow the U.S.-Russian agreement will induce Tehran and Pyongyang to join in. This faith-based nonproliferation flies in the face of history. As the U.S. and Russia have drawn down their arsenals the past two decades, the rogues have moved fast to build up theirs. They continue to do so.
But President Obama is not really so hopelessly naïve as to believe that this will work either. He is actually using the Iranian threat to pursue what he really wants, which is the nuclear disarmament of America. That is the only way to make sense of his policies. American people, call your office.
