The announcements made yesterday were beyond belief. Obama has actually come out and said that he will not retaliate against anyone who uses chemical or biological weapons against American citiziens. Whatever happened to the man who claimed that he had "no patience or tolerance" for those who would attack innocent civilians?
Now, the Iranians are laughing at us. From the Associated Press via Google:
|Iran's hard-line president has ridiculed President Barack Obama's new strategy aimed at reducing the likelihood of nuclear conflict.|
Obama on Tuesday announced new rules constraining the use of America's nuclear arsenal, vowing not use nuclear weapons against countries that do not have them. However, Iran and North Korea were not included in that pledge because they do not cooperate with other countries on nonproliferation standards.
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, addressing thousands in northwestern Iran on Wednesday, likened Obama to a "cowboy" and called him an inexperienced newcomer who follows the will of Israel. Ahmadinejad said the U.S. president "can't do a damn thing."
Weren't countries like Iran supposed to start liking us after Obama got elected? Seems like the rhetoric coming out of Tehran is worse than it ever was under George W. Bush.
