Iran must be President Obama’s immediate priority
WaPo ^ | 11/16/2012 | Henry Kissinger

Posted on 11/18/2012 12:52:28 PM PST by mojito

...Three stages are involved in the evolution of a military nuclear capability: a delivery system, a capacity to enrich uranium and the production of nuclear warheads. Iran has been augmenting the range and number of its missile systems since at least 2006. Its enrichment capacity — long underreported to the International Atomic Energy Agency — has been expanded to thousands of centrifuges (the instruments that enrich uranium to bomb-grade material). The level exceeds any reasonable definition of peaceful uses authorized by the Non-Proliferation Treaty. The inevitable culmination is a nuclear weapon.

To draw the line at proscribing an Iranian nuclear weapon — as some argue — would prove unmanageable. Once the requisite amount of fissile material has been produced, constructing and equipping a warhead is a relatively short and technologically straightforward process, almost certainly impossible to detect in a timely fashion.

If so ineffectual a red line were to emerge from a decade of diplomacy by the permanent members of the Security Council, the result would be an essentially uncontrollable military nuclear proliferation throughout a region roiled by revolution and sectarian blood-feuds.

When Henry lectured Barry.

An important, profoundly distressing article.

Kissinger tells Barry that he's got one last shot at stopping Iran, and the clock's ticking.

But Henry doesn't really expect feckless Barry to do anything.

Henry? I’m certain he will do to whatever Iranian-born Valerie Jarret tells him to.

Funny that Henry’s speaking out so stridently now. Does he know what Obama is about?

PS. Don’t forget to freep that poll on the side, asking readers whether or not they support Obamacare.

Whatever it should be, my impression is that golfing and partying must be Obama's immediate priority. It certainly isn't the people who voted for him. Or against him.

Why is the lesson of 9/11 lost on so many?

They don't need a missle, Henry! All they need is an airliner and a pilot willing to die for Allah!

Idiots!

Obama’s only priority is looking in the mirror and smoking weed/golfing.

He is not interested in stopping them. I am thinking he thinks a nuclear Iran is a good thing. Or else his minders do.

And it certainly isn’t jobs or the economy.

I feel the same way. I think 0 is more Muslim and in bed with Muslim Brotherhood and anti-Israel than what he says. I think he feels they are the cause of many problems in the Middle East and would not shed one tear if they were nuked into oblivion. Also willing to bet he has been paid handsomely to allow them access to infiltrate the U.S. at the highest levels. There’s something seriously wrong with the current administration. It’s obvious we have been infiltrated in a huge way.

If that is true, I hope that the fact that WWIII results in earnest does not shock him. The final conflict before the return of Jesus is prophesied to begin in Jerusalem (per Zechariah chapter 14).

“The reformist tendencies in the Arab Spring — already under severe pressure — would be submerged by this process.”

Has Kissinger lost his mind? Did he ever have one? The reformist tendencies in the Arab Spring was to turn the Middle East over to the Muslim Brotherhood and Al-Quaida. That’s the reform Kissinger is talking about? Does he really expect positive, humane actions from the Middle East now?

I think that what you say is likely true in every detail. But, it still remains that 0bma is 0bama’s immediate priority. He cannot be very concerned about any other consideration.

Any “immediate priority” that interests soetoro with regard to Iran is the implementaion of sharia law here in the United States.

Obama’s going to listen to Henry Kissinger? Why would the White Hut resident Muslim listen to a German Jew? Barry will do what the Iranian-born Valerie Jarrett [his real brain] tells him to do. Kissinger, not so much.
