Iran Sends Ships to American Borders, Threatens War… Obama Silent
If you think that our enemies don’t sense the weakness of our current Commander in Chief, think again.
Our allies like Israel have been estranged from us and our adversaries have been emboldened. Mitt Romney recently pointed out that time and time again, Russian president Vladimir Putin has “outperformed” Obama on the world stage.
It’s a sad day for American when our enemies are saber-rattling and we’re doing nothing. Iran’s warships are approaching US waters for the first time, and one of their top naval commanders is threatening to sink American ships and kill soldiers.
And what has Obama done? Nothing.
The Washington Free Beacon reports:
“The Americans can sense by all means how their warships will be sunk with 5,000 crews and forces in combat against Iran and how they should find its hulk in the depths of the sea,” Rear Admiral Ali Fadavi, the commander of the elite Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Navy, was quoted as saying Sunday in the regional press.
Fadavi issued these threats just a day after Iranian war vessels were reported to have approached U.S. maritime borders.
“Iran’s military fleet is approaching the United States’ maritime borders, and this move has a message,” Iranian Admiral Afshin Rezayee Haddad was quoted as saying by the semi-official Fars News Agency.
Iran dispatched the war fleet in “response to Washington’s beefed up naval presence in the Persian Gulf,” where American ships are stationed to help keep international shipping lanes safe, according to the report.
Iranian leaders rightly pointed out that Obama doesn’t have the will or courage to attack them if necessary. The report continues:
Iranian military leaders continued to threaten the United States – it’s principal nuclear negotiating partner – well into Sunday, when another top Iranian Navy commander claimed that the United States does not have the courage or ability to attack Iran.
“Were the enemy able to inflict damage on us, it would do so; [you must] rest assured that they can’t,” Iranian Navy Commander Rear Admiral Habibollah Sayyari told fellow navy personnel during a ceremony celebrating “the 35th anniversary of the victory of the Islamic Revolution.”
When Reagan was president, the world knew not to mess with the United States. Obama’s weakness has emboldened our enemies and made the world more dangerous. His failure to get Iran to give up its nuclear weapons is just one of the many failures of his Middle East policy. You can be sure of one thing: If the US doesn’t act, Israel will do what it needs to in order to protect themselves from the Islamic radicals should they obtain a nuclear weapon.
