'New and disquieting Which-Side-Is-Obama-On Update'

Topics: Iran, Political News and commentaries

Why in the hell would Barack Obama want to block Iran sanctions at the upcoming G8 summit!

The only answer is that the decision is based upon a much misguided and extremely naive foreign policy. As Rich Lowry wrote at RCC, Obama should have learned from N. Korea:

Obama has gotten a preview of what extending his hand to a clenched fist looks like in North Korea. Six months into the era of Obama's irenic, world-calming diplomacy, Pyongyang has tested a long-range missile and a nuclear device, and announced it's going to weaponize its plutonium stock and proceed with a uranium-enrichment program. Kim Jong Il's family dynasty shows no sign of realizing that the advent of Obama was supposed to change its nature, interests, and behavior.

Why will the mullahs?

The answer, of course, is that they won't. And we'll have lost valuable time to stop Iran's development of nuclear weapons. Timesonline reports that Dr Mohamed ElBaradei, the Director-General of the International Atomic Energy Agency, the UN watchdog, said this week (to the BBC) that it was his "gut feeling" that Iran's leaders wanted to put nuclear weapons within their reach "to send a message to their neighbours, to the rest of the world: don't mess with us".

Not a very promising scenario, from an ideologh hell-bent on world domination.
