Obama Goes Begging to Tehran

Consider what’s going on here

Tehran (AFP) – US President Barack Obama recently sent a private message to Iran’s leadership via Iraq’s prime minister, an Iranian newspaper reported Monday on the eve of a deadline for a nuclear deal.

Hamshahri, Iran’s highest-circulation daily, citing a lawmaker, said “one of the leaders of a neighbouring country” took the message from Obama to officials in Tehran.

The subject discussed was the nuclear talks between Iran and world powers led by the United States it said, without giving further details on its content.

Iran is a totalitarian regime. Given that, this story does not get published in their largest newspaper without official sanction. So, assuming the story is true, it means that the leaders of Iran are intentionally taunting the U.S. and thumping their chests for their regional allies and enemies that the President of the United States is begging them for a deal through back channels. Iranian leaders are showing the world that they have Obama wrapped around their little finger.

Obama is belittling our nation in a desperate attempt to secure a foreign policy legacy for himself – even at the expense of a nuclear Middle East.

  1. Fairs Fare

    Conservatives have been critical from the beginning about these efforts. If trying to negotiate a deal isn’t the right option what is… War? Sanctions haven’t slowed them down and if the time comes to “take out” their nuclear program at least other nations will know we exhausted diplomatic efforts first. I don’t see any of the actions taken so far as “begging” nor do I think Iran has President Obama “wrapped around their little finger”. To the critics I would ask… How do we end Irans nuclear weapons program?

    Well Said !

    The Israeli’s would have taken Irans program out already if it could be done .

    This is whining from the cheap seats about the right way to handle Iran from the same
    folks who got it all wrong about Iraq .

    They need a 10 year time out .
