You get the feeling the United States under Barack Obama is not prepared to deal with any crisis around the globe? It's 3 a.m. and Obama is out back sneaking a cigarette when the phone call comes.
From Investor's Business Daily editorial:
Last week's postelection protests had the makings of an uprising that might have overthrown mullah rule. The missing ingredient: well-prepared, preplanned leadership from the United States.
We refuse to halt Iran's nuclear program with military force. We won't try to stop it with serious economic warfare that goes beyond slap-on-the-wrist sanctions. And now it also seems clear that we won't stand with Iranian freedom fighters in their hour of need.
Apparently, the secret weapon the U.S. is intent on using (but only when the time is right) against Iranian nuclear jihad is: Our president's irresistible personality.
