This is a ridiculous joke. The purpose is to prepare the middle-east for a nuclear Iran, which Obama has no intention of preventing. He thinks that if he sells Iran's neighbors some missile defenses, that'll make everyone happy.

Obama is a childish moron. The moment that Iran gets their bomb, the entire middle-east will go nuclear. They'll either build them, buy them or steal them. They know that all it will take is for one or two or Iran's nukes to get through their defenses. Any idiot can see this is the case.

This is NOT like the "containment" between the US and the USSR back in the day. The distances and times back then allowed at least for some kind of measured response. The two players were contintents & oceans apart, not right next to each other. However, with all the various middle-eastern players crammed together geographically and missile flight times measured in mere seconds, the situation is ripe for a "first strike", a mistake or an accident. The chances of a nuclear exchange will be nearly 100%. That'll affect the entire world.

Obama is an idiot. He needs to be impeached before Iran goes nuclear, as he has NO intention of stopping them. He just gave them six more months and billions of dollars, probably all they need to finish making their bombs.

We elected a total amateur and the whole world will soon pay the price.

This is all about the defense industry making money. If Israel did not have nuclear weapons, perhaps Iran would have no interest in them. What do you suggest the president do? The inspection of Iran's nuclear has begun. You say he 'gave' them billions of dollars? Incorrect, it was their money that was released to them.
