Yesterday, over in La-la Land, President Obama was at the U.S. Coast Guard Academy telling graduates that “climate change” is the greatest national security threat — and denying it is basically dereliction of duty. Well, let’s get back to reality where a REAL global security threat, Iran, is ratcheting up the belligerence.
As reported by CBSnews.com, “Iran’s supreme leader vowed Wednesday he will not allow international inspection of Iran’s military sites or access to Iranian scientists under any nuclear agreement with world powers. Ayatollah Ali Khamenei told military commanders Wednesday that Iran will resist “coercion and excessive demands” from America and other world powers. Negotiators from Iran and a six nation group — the U.S., Russia, China, Britain, France and Germany — have launched a new round of talks in Vienna focused on reaching a final deal that curbs Iran’s nuclear program in return for lifting economic sanctions. The two sides reached a framework agreement in March and hope to strike a final deal by June 30. A fact sheet on the framework accord issued by the U.S. State Department said Iran would be required to grant the U.N. nuclear agency access to any “suspicious sites.” But Khamenei indicated that the Americans are increasing their demands that international inspection of Iran’s military sites and interviews with Iranian scientists be included in the final deal.”
“The impudent and brazen enemy expects that we allow them talk to our scientists and researchers about a fundamental local achievement but no such permission will be allowed,” Khamenei told military commanders in Tehran Wednesday, in remarks broadcast on state TV. “No inspection of any military site or interview with nuclear scientists will be allowed.”
President Obama chided the young Coasties that their denial of climate change was negligent and a dereliction of duty. Well, continuing to sit at a negotiating table with Iran is the real representation of dereliction of duty in protecting the American people.
What do you call it when this Obama administration sits down with representatives from a nation that calls for “death to America?” The delusional foreign policy viewpoint of the Obama administration cannot be any more clear. They threaten those who do not accept fighting the weather as a national security imperative. Yet, they themselves are in complete denial that Iran represents an existential threat to the world.
And the supreme Iranian leader already stated there is no framework for any agreement. It’s pretty obvious who has the high ground in this theater of the absurd.
“I will not allow foreigners to interview — which is tantamount to interrogation — the prominent beloved scientists and sons of this nation,” Khamenei said. Maybe Obama can convince the Ayatollah he’ll send bad weather his way if Khamenei continues being obstinate.
I am amazed by President Obama’s dereliction of duty in not demanding the release of the four American hostages being held by Iran: Jason Rezanian, Robert Levinson, Saeed Abedini, and Amir Hekmati. Why don’t we hear our own president speaking with such conviction on the behalf of these four Americans like Khamenei does of his “beloved scientists and sons” of his nation? Maybe President Obama doesn’t see these four Americans in the same light and hold the same affection for them and their return to their families? Again, the hypocrisy is obvious, but will anyone in our media bring this to the attention of the American people?
Is it too much to ask for ending the hypothetical questions about Iraq twelve years ago, and instead inquire as to what the presidential wannabes would do in the current situation with Iran?
And I just have to ask, did someone actually write a speech for Obama, and put it into the teleprompter declaring that military leaders who deny climate change are guilty of negligence and dereliction of duty — or did he just blurt that out himself?
Regardless, the real negligence and dereliction of duty comes from the repeat performances of abandoning Americans in Benghazi, in Mexico, and now in Iran.
