U.S.-Iranian relations are no bueno

U.S.-Iranian relations are no bueno

The good people at The Daily Beast have provided a compendium of the horrible, horrible things Hopey will have to solve when the country starts working again, provided Khamenei doesn’t nuke Tel Aviv or Baghdad is once again engulfed in flames. Or Russia doesn’t “liberate” another entirely inconsequential breakaway republic.

Memorable lines include:

Karim Sadjadpour, an Iran expert at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, points out, “There are two things that would really rehabilitate [Ahmadinejad’s] presidency: One is a U.S. attack on Iran, and the second is a major U.S. diplomatic overture to Iran.” And all the time the clock is ticking, the uranium is being made weapons grade, and the Israelis are wondering whether or not to bomb, bomb, bomb Iran on their own.

Read the BIG FAT STORY! More fun stuff:

We must take out Osama bin Laden and his lieutenants if we have them in our sights.” That brave promise sounded so innocuous, but the thought of storming into sovereign territory in Pakistan in hot pursuit of bin Laden sparked rioting in the streets of Islamabad, mobs waving “Death to Obama” signs, and the burning of American flags….As Max Boot reports in Commentary, “Considering that a number of extremists have infiltrated Pakistan’s most sensitive facilities in the past, it is not inconceivable that militants could get their hands on a bomb.”

Barack Obama, the oratorical equivalent of Miles Davis, must now prove he is politically and strategically equivalent to FDR, even better.
