“If the Iranians LIKE their enriched uranium, they get to KEEP their enriched uranium”

Nuclear Iran 444493

In case you somehow missed it this weekend, Obama has apparently decided that World War III should happen sooner, rather than later.

To quote Carol Platt Liebau, “If the Iranians like their enriched uranium, they get to keep their enriched uranium“:

Failing to accept the TRUTH about the #MiddleEast:

obama-flagpinDo you remember this old Obama quote?

“…Now it’s our moment to lead – our generation’s time to tell another great American story.

So someday we can tell our children that this was the time when we helped forge peace in the Middle East…”

(–Senator Barack Obama, 4/23/2007)

Hmmm,….  How’s that coming along? Let’s take a peek at a few items from the region:

#Egypt, the Middle East, and the ‘One-State Solution’…

Morsi - deposedEgypt continues to be embroiled in turmoil.

Mohamed Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood have lost their shot at power in Egypt (nice job with that, fellas!!), much to the chagrin of our President. After all, Obama was one of Morsi’s biggest supporters, with the story of the two men playing out similarly to one of those old ‘boy-meets-girl’ trade paperbacks:

Now, no one’s quite sure as to exactly WHAT form of government will ultimately replace the Morsi regime in the long term, although the general consensus seems to be: probably something even worse.

Peace in the Middle East: “you’re doing it wrong…”

Don’t get too comforted by the temporary armistice between Hamas and Israel.

First of all, as Ed over at Hotair.com says, “The description of the cease-fire as “tenuous” is a masterpiece of understatement“.

This is a respite in Gaza, not a resolution“, Max Boot says.

They’re both right, of course. That’s because Israel wants peace, and Israel’s enemies want …the end of Israel. As plenty of folks before me have queried, how do you “compromise” with someone who wants to exterminate your entire populace? What exactly qualifies as “halfway” in that case: only most of your citizenry dead, perhaps?

What do the election, Benghazi, and the Israel/Hamas war have in common?

—–

ANSWER: culture.

For instance, when you shake your head and wonder how could any rational person think that Israel defending itself is an unprovoked attack, keep in mind that such “thinking” has been stoked, taught and reinforced to much of our society since they were in grade-school. In high-schools & colleges, ‘unpopular thought’ isn’t being discouraged: it’s being systematically stamped out. Our schools are now highly expensive inculcation centers, rather than institutions of higher learning.

The election? The logical result of a Progressive ideology which is pervasive throughout  our society.

Benghazi? Our president has lied, repeatedly, on this entire debacle and still the press doesn’t push for the truth, leaving it to the Wall Street Journal, conservative blogs and Fox News.
