Palin's Foreign Policy

No, Palin does not think Obama should declare war on Iran just to boost his poll numbers. But that's not my topic right now. Today, I'm going to let the Beaufort Observer do the talking for me. In this article, they discuss Iran and Palin at the TPC:

Last week may turn out to be one of the most important week's of our generation. Iran announced that it has the capability of producing a nuclear bomb.

Now we say "may turn out..." because it is possible they are bluffing. But they may not be. Either way it was potentially the worst defeat Barack Obama has suffered in his problem-plagued presidency.

If it was a bluff then Iran has made a fool of Obama and Hillary Clinton's repeated statements that "Iran cannot be allowed to have nuclear weapons." Thus, with a hostile nation that Obama has repeatedly contended he can negotiate with we are now faced with the fact that they have demonstrated that they do not fear any threat from Barack Obama. They have tested him (remember Joe Biden promising this?) and have proven him to be a paper tiger.

But worse, if they are correct and indeed they can build a bomb then the world has changed. It is not so much a threat in the next few years that they would drop atomic bombs on America as it is that they might do so on Israel and then we've got a problem. Even if they do not actually push the button it will nonetheless give them immunity to spread mayhem and support terrorists with immunity.

The only thing Iran now has to fear is not the United States or the United Nations. They have neutered both. But all they have to fear is their own people, and unfortunately Barack Obama has betrayed the democracy movement in Iran.

The irony is that last week's announcement is not being debated in the American media. Wonder why.

Well, that is likely to change in the next few weeks, thanks to Barack Obama's greatest nemisis: Sarah Palin.

Palin, in her speech to the National Tea Party Convention, knocked Obama's best national security pitch out of the park.

You didn't hear about in the Elite Media, but she has nonetheless exposed what will be Barack Obama's downfall if indeed we are correct on the implications of Iran's announcement. Whether it is a bluff or not.

If you want to read the story you have to go to the foreign press to get the story. Here it is The Jerusalem Post on Sarah Palin.

In other news, I had someone remind me on Saturday to put up my Todd emails post. I'm working on it. I'm going to try and have it up by the end of the week. Lots of emails to go through. :)
