-Obama’s Coming War?

by Dr. D ~ September 15th, 2009

War in the Middle East

A couple of days ago we posted about ‘the mixed signals’ between Iran and the Obama administration on the issue of Iran’s growing nuclear capability.

Now comes this excellent article by Bret Stephens in the Wall Street Journal: “Obama Is Pushing Israel Toward War

It is the conclusion of Stephens that inaction by the Obama administration is actually pushing Israel to the brink of war with Iran. While most Americans are keyed in on the failing economy and the Health Care bill, events on the world stage are quickly proceeding beyond the point of no return.

From the Israeli perspective they are standing alone and for the first time see no support coming from an American president. While President Obama calls a nuclear-armed Iran "unacceptable" he is not really doing anything substantive about it. He continues a policy of pursuing sanctions against Iran while the rest of the international community including Russia is unsupportive of continuing that tactic. In addition, Defense Secretary Robert Gates has publicly gone on record in opposition to any military strikes against Iran’s nuclear facilities. Where does that leave Israel which would be the presumptive and already stated target of any future Iranian nuclear aggression? Alone.

What are the consequences of the current Obama administration policies, naivete, and non-action towards Iran? The specter and reality of a coming expanded war in the Middle East in the near future.

If we don’t take action Israel will–Fact!

If Israel militarily attacks the Iranian nuclear facilities there is no guarantee that they will be successful. But count on a nasty escalation of the war in the Middle East. Syria supports Iran, so does Hezbollah in Lebanon and Hamas in Gaza.

Now for you folks who could care less what happens in the Middle east and say: “It’s about the economy stupid–let the Israelis fight their own battles”

Here’s what you can expect in this country–$5-6 dollar/gallon gasoline (low estimates) and with limited access to oil, an economy that rivals the ‘Great Depression’ of the ‘30s. Not only that, our armed forces in Iraq and Afghanistan would be in the middle of that whole mess.

Forget about Health Care or Prop 8 or any other important issues if the ‘dogs of war’ are released in the Middle east, ‘Obama’s War’ could be far greater than anything we’ve ever seen since WWII with far greater consequences. It really is time to pray!
