Good riddance! Obama to leave office today.

Well, if anybody had any remaining doubts what he stood for, this final act clarifies it. But what Obama has done on the world stage is just horrific.  To paraphrase Churchill, never in modern history have the lives of so many people put in jeopardy by so few.  

The sunset clause of the Iran Deal enables Iran to become a nuclear power in 13 years even if it sticks to the terms of the agreement. How under Obama’s leadership could the P5+1 powers    sign such a dangerous deal will be up to historians to clarify. I would say it is a combination of ignorance about Islam, especially Shi’a eschatology,  on the one hand and political correctness as euphemism for political cowardice on the other.  The political elites know that something is not right, but in contrast to Churchill they do not know what their enemy believes in.  Those who do, skip over the truth like Boris Johnson did in his book The Churchill Factor – a perfect example of political cowardice.  But in the end it all boils down to ignorance.

Reversing the Iran Deal must be priority number one for the new President and Congress.  Of all the disasters Obama foreign policy has created, and there are so many, from supporting the Muslim Brotherhood  in Egypt to not enforcing his red line in Syria,  the Iran Deal stands out as the most significant and dangerous error the west has committed in modern history. Not since the Cuban Missile Crisis in 1962 have we put ourselves in such peril. 

In 2009 I wrote an article in the American Thinker How will Israel survive Obama's naïveté on Iran?

In two hours we will have made it.  The Obama nightmare is finally ending 

Phew!  We did it. Israel survived Obama!
