When the Iranian people rose up in their millions demanding change and shouting “Obama, Obama, you’re either with them or with us”, Obama gave them some lip service.
Instead, while rooftop sharpshooters were picking off peaceful Iranian demonstrators at random, Obama sent the second of at least two personal letters to the Head Rapist Khamenei asking for his friendship.
The rest is history. Iranians were savagely put down; except for a public snub, no response was ever given to Obama letters.
It now seems the White House has not learned any lesson from its Iranian snafu, it is pussyfooting over the reaction to the Syrian army tanks and rooftop sharpshooters murdering unarmed people who are asking for freedom.
Should Obama act decisively while another crime against humanity is being committed, this time in Syria, he will also redeem himself in Iran and beyond.
The very least Obama can do is to impose airtight sanctions, snuffing the life out of Assad’s Battist killing apparatuses. There is no time for none of that “targeted sanctions” nonsense.
An emancipated Syria would deny IRR, the Islamist Rapist Republic, its only strategic ally. It would greatly expedite its downfall, a death knell to both Hamas and Hezbollah terrorist groups, opening the road to a peace settlement in the Middle East. Obama, do it, or be square!
