WASHINGTON — U.S. President Barack Obama, in a message to Iran’s people and leaders, said this year represented the “best opportunity in decades” to pursue a different relationship between their two countries.
Obama said Thursday that nuclear talks between Iran and Western powers had made progress but that gaps remained. “This moment may not come again soon,” Obama said in his message celebrating Nowruz, the Iranian New Year. “I believe that our nations have an historic opportunity to resolve this issue peacefully — an opportunity we should not miss.”...That presupposes that Iran's fanatical theocrats can be trusted--which, going strictly by their past actions and by their concept of taqiyyah (the green light they give themselves for lying for the sake of advancing their cause)--they can't be, and that Obama knows exactly what he's doing--which, again, going strictly by his record, he doesn't. Obama's problem is that he's worse than clueless. His brain is so stuffed full of progressive candy floss about becoming "friendly" with Iran, along with narcissistic reveries of his own awesomeness and how it will leave him a presidential legacy of the first rank, that there's zero room left for rational thought.
And if, by some remote chance, a rational thought did happen to surface there, it would quickly die of extreme loneliness.
Apropos the looming catastrophe of Obama's making, I sent the following letter to a local newspaper. The letter pertained to Bibi's supposed about-face on his pre-election one-state solution promise:
At a time when, courtesy Barack Obama and his confounding quest for a lasting legacy, Iran's fanatical theocrats will soon be able to create a nuke that has Israel's name on it, the whole "should it be a one-state or a two-state solution?" issue has, ipso facto, been rendered irrelevant. Unless someone--and at this stage it appears it will have to be Israel's Benjamin Netanyahu--does something to stop this nightmare scenario from unfolding, the Ayatollah will supply his own "solution". And you can be certain that, like the Nazis', it will be a "final" one.
