Obama Misses In Iran

March 23, 2009

The message to Iran from President Obama fell pretty flat for a few reasons.

1. Iran knows keeping its nuclear program going and going without nuclear weapons being produced gives then star power beyond what they rate.
2. Before 9/11 Iran had a lot of credibility as a militant anti American voice, now it is second fiddle.
3. Iran above all else wants to make sure Iraq never threatens Iran again and a strong U S presence in Iraq makes that threat possible.
4. Sanctions are not workable against Iran and Russia is working very hard to be friendly with Iran.
5. Bottom line-for Iran to happy the US would have to allow Iran to become an unchecked regional power.
