From The Political Commentator, written by Michael Haltman
Is war with Iran a foregone conclusion and sitting right around the corner?
As U.S. foreign and national security policy continues to wallow under the weight of benign neglect, Israel may be prepared to take-out Iran's nuclear weapons infrastructure.
Such a strike would likely take place in the fall.
This attack would be undertaken as a move of self-preservation as Israel would most likely be target number one when Iran is nuclear ready.
This Iranian nuclear capability would have occurred under the watchful eye of the IAEA, the U.N. organization that the U.S. has ceded control to.
If a military strike on Iran by Israel were to take place, and despite President Obama's obvious dislike and disdain for Israel, the United States will be drawn into the conflict as well.
The painful lesson for the Middle East and the rest of the world that will have been learned from the way in which Iran's nuclear program has been dealt with is that negotiating with terrorists is simply not possible.
Never, never, never possible!
While such a process may serve to address some short-term political agenda, it will never serve to protect national or regional security interests.
Why you ask?
Simply because during any charade of good faith negotiations, the terrorists will continue to work on whatever goal that they are trying accomplish.
In the case of Iran, it is the continued attempt to enrich uranium to weapons grade, weaponize it and develop a delivery system in the form of long-range ballistic missiles.
All being done under the watchful eye of diplomats and U.N. watchdogs!
You see, threats of sanctions or suffering and duress of their people don't carry any weight, because terrorists do not care about their people.
Terrorists understand one thing, and that is the clenched fist!
Why has it come to this?
If an attack on Iran were to occur, will it happen due to the politicization of security or because of the naivete of the good guys? Is it A or is it B?
A) Would a preemptive strike on Iran by the United States, undertaken to prevent potential regional and global armageddon, have failed to fit into some domestic political agenda? or
B) Do leaders of free and democratic society's naturally think that all other leaders are inherently honest and genuinely interested in doing what is best for their people making negotiations the preferred methodology for problem solving?
If watching the Obama administration is any guide to answering this question, the answer is most definitely A!
