President Obama’s January 1, 2010 Iranian nuclear weapons development deadline has been reached – and breached. So, in the wake of Khamnei’s and Ahmadinejad’s rather laughing dismissal of President Obama’s rhetoric, what happens now?
Believe me when I say that this was Obama’s deadline, not Iran’s. Obama had until January 1, 2010 to solve for the Iranian Question. He and his words have failed – again.
President Obama spoke – he spoke a great deal – And the regime currently ruling Iran didn’t just ignore him, they laughingly defied him and accelerated their nuclear weapons development program.
They built clandestine, hardened uranium enrichment facilities near Qom, facilities too small for energy production use but very well-suited for weapons development. Now it is reported that they are trying to illicitly purchase approximately 1350 tons of purified uranium purified uranium ore, aka yellow cake, from Kazakhstan. All the time while doing this the Muslim regime ruling Iran has threatened Israel and taunted the Civilized World. They have also conducted very public tests of medium and long range missiles to carry a nuclear payload as far as Europe.
As of today, President Obama’s deadline to halt Iran’s dangerous quest for nuclear weapons has past and Iran continues on its hell spawned agenda to be a nuclear power. But does President Obama have anything but well-crafted but empty words and incomplete and ineffectual sanctions to answer Iran’s truculence with?
The Doomsday Clock of a Nuclear Iran strikes ever closer to midnight. Khamenei and Ahmadinejad have called Obama’s bluff and now Obama has to show his cards – and whatever small measure of mettle he might have.
