Turns out that Iran decided to send a message to the world. We have missiles that can reach Israel and some American interests. They are currently continuing to work on obtaining nuclear weapons to put ON those missiles. HERE is why I STILL, at this time, have to lean ever so slightly toward McCain.
Obama said this.
“Instead of engaging in over-the-top rhetoric, what we should be doing is gathering our allies together in a serious effort to apply sanctions to Iran and encourage them to change their behavior."
What does he think we have BEEN DOING? What has it gained us? What has it done to change Iran's position or actions? What will it? I know, the Messiah of the LWL hasn't yet talked to Little Hitler. Maybe then, Little Hitler will just be so moved and touched at how much Obama cares about him and Iran, he will simply stop. Be nice. Maybe Obama should sit down with Little Hitler and read him Winnie the Pooh. After all, "Iran is tiny. They pose no real threat to us."
"Iran is a grave threat. We have to make sure that we are working with our allies to apply tightening pressure economically on Iran, at the same time as we start engaging in the kind of direct diplomacy that can lead them to standing down on issues like nuclear weapons.”
John McCain said this.
"There has been intense negotiations and diplomacy, and there continues to be a role for it. But history shows us that when nations are embarked on paths that can jeopardize the security of the region and the world, then other action besides diplomacy has to be contemplated and taken. And that's why meaningful and impactful sanctions are called for at this time."
He DOES understand Iran, and he DOES understand the possibility of using force if ALL else fails. National Security is big with me. On this, McCain is FAR better suited to understand it, and DO whatever is necessary to protect America. Obama flip flopping all over the place like a freshwater flounder just yanked out of a little pound in the back yard. McCain. Been there and done that. He has fought to protect America and American interests. He HAS faced the enemy and lived to tell about it. He HAS dealt with enemies and understands that some just cannot be reasoned with. It really is JUST that simple.
