Obama’s containment paradigm

Remember the gaffe by then Secretary Hagel when he slipped:

“I misspoke and said I supported the president’s position on containment. If I said that, I meant to say we don’t have a position on containment,” Hagel said. – Politico

Guess what? Obama’s policy on Iran is containment. But at least he was against it before he was doing it. But it left Hagel confused, who must have saw at the onset that the Obama policy was containment. So Obamafiles had to come out to formerly deny it, saying they were against containment. Oh, we do know how Obama’s administration works. Aka “Listen to and report what we say but pay no attention to what we are really doing.” (don’t bother yourself about that)

Wa Po December 9, 2011

“As recent events underscore the growing Iranian nuclear threat, the Obama administration appears to be pivoting toward a policy of containment. The emphasis of its rhetoric has shifted from preventing an “unacceptable” nuclear Iran to “isolating” it. …/

The administration’s alternative to prevention — isolation — implies containment. But a nuclear Iran could not be contained as the Soviet Union was. Containment requires credibility, a resource United States will have drained if, after numerous warnings to the contrary, we permit Tehran to cross the nuclear threshold. And no matter how isolated, a nuclear Iran is likely to spark a destabilizing cascade of proliferation. Despite its own isolation, North Korea shares its nuclear technology. Iran might, too.”

It is one thing to have and support its containment policy but another to just lie about them. Leaving Iran steps, maybe only months, from its objective is a containment policy.

In fact, this administration went to lengths to put Iran in that on-the-verge position. It first stitched enrichment into the policy — something they didn’t have before. They strive to set arbitrary enrichment levels. Who does that help? Then they have the difficulty with inspections which there seems to be no answer for. But no, they tell us, it is not a policy of containment.

To AIPAC in 21012, Obama said:

Iran’s leaders should understand that I do not have a policy of containment; I have a policy to prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. (Applause.)

March 5, 2012 Obama said: (while calling the US and Israel bond unbreakable)

“And as I emphasized, even as we will continue on the diplomatic front, we will continue to tighten pressure when it comes to sanctions, I reserve all options, and my policy here is not going to be one of containment. My policy is prevention of Iran obtaining nuclear weapons.

And as I indicated yesterday in my speech, when I say all options are at the table, I mean it.”

All options are on the table until they aren’t.

To the Atlantic, he told Jeffrey Goldberg:

Dismissing a strategy of “containment,” the president tells me it’s “unacceptable” for the Islamic Republic to have a nuclear weapon. …/

…”he seemed most frustrated when talking about what he sees as a deliberate campaign by Republicans to convince American Jews that he is anti-Israel. “Every single commitment I have made to the state of Israel and its security, I have kept,” he told me. “Why is it that despite me never failing to support Israel on every single problem that they’ve had over the last three years, that there are still questions about that?

Though he struck a consistently pro-Israel posture during the interview, Obama went to great lengths to caution Israel that a premature strike might inadvertently help Iran: “At a time when there is not a lot of sympathy for Iran and its only real ally, [Syria,] is on the ropes, do we want a distraction in which suddenly Iran can portray itself as a victim?”

He always manages to turn the Iran problem into a problem of Israel’s desires or potential actions. Why does that appear more of a threat to him than the possibility of a nuclear Iran? Now some two years later, it seems to be a replay of all that he said before…except that the elephant in the room is containment, as the policy of choice.

Obama seems the only one unwilling to call the duck what it is. But then he also cannot call ISIS what it is either.The river of denial runs straight through the White House. The guy who’s only major doctrine is “don’t do stupid stuff” apparently doesn’t see containment, or waffling on Iran policy, stupid stuff.

This is his “if you like your plan you can keep your plan, period.” It is his there is “not a smidgen of corruption” in the IRS. This is his “transparent administration.” This is his version of not wanting even the appearance of meddling in Israel’s election. But this is just the Mid East version of it.

       Only One Way Forward
  Demand Obama Take Military Against Iran NOW

Everything Else is a Distraction


As citizens of the United States our allegiance to protect the Constitution is sacrosanct. America, like Israel, is now under an imminent threat from Iran. We must not wave the white flag of surrender to Obama or Iran  We must not forsake our Constitution we will never get out of debt once we cede victory to Islam. 

Obama is not our king, we freed ourself from the tyrannical King George, now we must overcome Obama’s Shari compliant foreign policy, or we will lose our independence. Demand he destroys Iran Nuclear Terrorist War Machine Now, everything else is a diversion, even the Arab Spring dust up.

Make no mistake the Iranian threat is a Constitutional issue, American is under an imminent threat. While this global conflict finds its root cause in a biblical accounting , our position as Americans must be that of George Washington, who said, “The Constitution is the guideline which I will never abandon.“

Congressman Trent Frank said “Jihadist terrorists the world over will have access to nuclear weapons and the world’s children will forever have etched in their memory that moment in history when this government allowed the hellish shadow of nuclear Jihad to fall across their future. And still, as the centrifuges in Iran are spinning, the Obama administration is fiddling, and many members of this body stand by and contemplate. Have we lost our minds? ”

This is our generational moment: Stopping Iran Must be Our Top Priority.
My fellow Jews, any more rallies, even at the UN to show Israel we support her without demanding that Obama destroy Iran’s nuclear threat now would be an exercise  in futility. Although well intended it will fall short in achieving the goal of protecting Israel and America. 

As America citizens the Jewish people have one mission, we must use the Constitution as our guideline, as our focal point, in demanding Obama face this global threat from Iran now, Israel is not a superpower. We need to shake up America, never again should we hear Netanyahu pleading with our politicians and pro Israel groups to wake up and pressure Obama into taking action against Iran.  This is shameful.

To respond  the GOP, Beck, Hagee, the Federations, Michelle Bachman, Sarah Palin, and others even though their support for Israel is beyond reproach, but America’s Constitution is being threatened by a foreign power, defending the Constitution must be everyone’s top priority.

Thus at this time we only need to hear this proclamation from these parties, day after day they must insist :  Mr President protecting the citizens of the United States of America must be your first priority since you are in charge of our national security. Iran is an immanent  threat President Obama you must honor your pledge to protect our Constitution and destroy Iran ’s nuclear infrastructure NOW!.” 

Again, I want to stress that the citizens of America Obama is one step away from ceding victory to Islam. Obama’s cancerous appeasement enablement foreign policy must severed before it morphs any further, and becomes inoperable. Thus there is only one way to end the Iranian nuclear nightmare and the spread of Radical Islam:

Only with a payload of destruction directed into the heart of Iran ‘s nuclear facilities  will we  eliminate the hub in the wheel of an emerging Nuclear Terrorist Empire, which  has drawn into its vortex :  Russia, China, both who have aligned themselves with the Iranian Jihadist conglomerate (Syria, Hamas, Egypt, etc.) to impose their will on America , Israel , and what ever is left of the European Union.

America is not in the business of nation building, but in putting out of business those nations whose constitutions honor the subjugation of humankind. What is in the best Interest of the US ? To immediately attack and destroy Iran ‘s nuclear war machine and put Ahmadinejad and his criminal enterprise out of business.

This is the first call in the final push.to eliminate the Iranian threat. How to launch this victorious initiative will follow.  Be assured, for those who honor portect and defend the Covenant, and the Constitution of the Untied States of America, victory is guaranteed. 

Start now  As your representatives Demand they declare that.President Obama must launch a  Strike Against Iran’s Nuclear War Infrastructure Now. Call 202- 224-3121
