The thin red line that everyone said Iran cannot be allowed to cross...oops, has been crossed!

Well, it looks like it's time to give the UN and the big shot European powers a standing ovation on a job well done in thwarting Iran's nuclear program. All those years of serious diplomacy and tough UN Sanctions worked about as well as most logical people thought they would.

If our political leaders would just pause for a moment and look in the mirror, they would see that they have "stupid" written all over their faces. Does Obama think he still has several months left to practice his tough "but respectful" diplomacy with Iran? Does he think he can still offer Iran his top secret carrot and stick program and not have awkmuhdinnerjob laugh in his face?

Obama better be prepared to be humiliated because I will place my bet that Iran will humiliate Obama when given their first opportunity. They know Obama doesn't have the courage to deal with Iran the way that these latest developments require.

I believe that from this point forward Obama will purposely stand on the side lines and let SOS Clinton and Susan Rice is in front of the news media. This action is something that he wants no part of now. He was talking tough during his campaign and was nonstop about his intent to talk directly to awkmuhdinnerjob without precondtions.

Well, Iran just crossed that red line and there is no way they are going to turn around. Obama won't be able to do his pretty boy posturing with Iran now. It wouldn't matter anyway, because Iran is just going to tell Obama, the European big boys and the UN to shove it, and dare them to do anything about it.

Let's see, will the UN do anything? No. Sorry, I admit that was a stupid question.

Will the European big boys do anything? Are you kidding? They are the Sultans of Surrender.

Well, that's two out of three, and in this case with my apologies to Nazareth, "two out of three is in fact bad."

Darn, it boils down to Obama. Unfortunately, I believe it will just have to be a great big "Nope for the Messianic Hope." By the way, the noise you hear in the background is Obama trying to find his "present" button so he can prepare to cast his vote. But what have we here. You mean to say that this will actually be a decision that only the President can make? Obama can't have Joe B. vote for him? NOPE! The buck stops at him. Sure he'll supposedly listen to all of his advisers, but he is the only one who has the Constitutional power to order our Military to pull the proverbial trigger.

It looks as if Israel will have to go it alone. Bush wouldn’t give Israel the green light to proceed while he was in office. He wanted to be able to leave office with the Iraq situation under control. I can understand why Bush would not want to ruffle the feathers of the Iraqi population, but if will have to happen at some point in time. The longer the military strikes against Iran are delayed, the more difficult it will become to be successful.

The outgoing Israeli leaders are pessimists, but they also realized that when it came to Iran's nuclear weapons program, it had to be stopped. The only reason the outgoing leaders were even contemplating the military operation is that they believed the U.S. would participate militarily in the operation. Now, Israel will be very lucky if Obama with allow them to fly through Iraqi airspace. If Obama doesn't authorize Israel to do that, it will be almost impossible for Israel to achieve any element of surprise because of the flight paths they will have to utilize. It will just about make it impossible for Israel to be successful. However, Israel has now choice but to proceed.

The Iranian Mullahs believe it is their duty and destiny to destroy Israel. The Koran states this and Iran has not been bashful about letting the world know that they intend to wipe Israel off the map. Although Iran keeps publicly stating this position, there are those educated people on the left that just continue to be in a state of denial. I don't believe these people will ever change. Next you have the uneducated or stupid people. You can educate the un-educated, but stupid is permanent.

Now that Iran has reached the nuclear threshold Israel has to throw the self-defense part out the window. They can't wait for Iran to fire the first nuclear shot. Israel only has one option and that is for pre-emptive strikes on Iran's nuclear facilities. The question now is whether Obama going to support Israel and protect our interests or if he is going to vote present.

If Obama chooses to not allow Israel to fly through Iraqi airspace, it will be impossible for Israel to maintain any element of surprise. It also puts the Israel pilots at a greater risk and makes it very difficult for Israel to fly enough aircraft and missions to do the necessary damage to Iran's nuclear facilities.

If Obama thinks he can vote present on this one and get away with it he is totally naive. If he thinks that Iran won't retaliate against Israel and the U.S military in Iraq and the surrounding areas then he's just plain stupid. If Iran attacks our troops and doesn't allow our Military Commanders to respond accordingly, then he should be impeached.

I think the incredibly narcissistic Obama actually believed he would just step in and solve all these problems that past administrations were unable to. This issue will Iran will bring him down a few cloud levels.

The price of oil might have dropped back to incredibly low levels, but I don't think that will be the case 6 months from now.

Iran holds enough uranium for bomb

Iran has built up a stockpile of enough enriched uranium for one nuclear bomb, United Nations officials acknowledged on Thursday.

In a development that comes as the Obama administration is drawing up its policy on negotiations with Tehran over its nuclear programme, UN officials said Iran had produced more nuclear material than previously thought.

They said Iran had accumulated more than one tonne of low enriched uranium hexafluoride at a facility in Natanz.

If such a quantity were further enriched it could produce more than 20kg of fissile material – enough for a bomb.

“It appears that Iran has walked right up to the threshold of having enough low enriched uranium to provide enough raw material for a single bomb,” said Peter Zimmerman, a former chief scientist of the US Arms Control and Disarmament Agency

The new figures come in a report from the International Atomic Energy Agency, the UN’s nuclear watchdog, released on Thursday. This revealed that Iran’s production of low enriched uranium had previously been underestimated.
