130,000 Iranian Fighters on Israel’s Border?
The Obama Administration Continues To Treat Iran Like a Partner in Reconciliation
Iran’s emboldenment versus Israel in Syria is part of its consolidation of power in the region as Yemen falls to a pro-Iranian militia, directly endangering the strategic Bab el-Mandeb Strait, and Iran creates a Shiite arc stretching from Iran itself through Iraq, Syria, and Lebanon. The region, in other words, “burns” while Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry—ostensible leaders of the Free World—“fiddle,” treating Iran as a partner in reconciliation and a tacit strategic ally. Clearly there are also Sunni threats in the region, particularly Islamic State. But pretending Iran is a friend and winking while it goes nuclear is a recipe for disaster.

That’s why—even if it infuriates Obama—he’ll be turning to Congress and the American people.
