Obama shrugged off Israel Prime Minister Netanyahu’s speech to Congress as ‘lacking alternatives’ in the matter of Iran’s path toward nuclear capability.
But, if ‘demanding that Iran “act like a normal country” before treating it like one’ doesn’t qualify as a viable alternative…
…if a call to nations to “stand together to stop Iran’s march of conquest, subjugation and terror” doesn’t qualify as a viable alternative…
…what in God’s name does?
In the Middle East, and globally, Iran has shown time and again it’s the bad actor in this matter…so, Mr. Obama, simply trusting they’ll change isn’t a good ‘alternative’.
In a classic example of diametrically opposed national philosophy, Israel’s PM said America’s Constitution “…promises life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Iran’s founding document pledges death, tyranny, and the pursuit of jihad…”
And he finished with a simple declaration that, before lifting restrictions against Iran, that state must do 3 things: stop its aggression against Middle East neighbors, stop it’s support of global terrorism, and stop threatening Israel’s annihilation.
Lacking alternatives? Not really.
Unless you’re living in Barack Obama’s world…of Oblivion.
