If you build it, we will come…

Merritt Island, FL - All the empty words about stopping proliferation of nuclear weapons and securing nuclear material stock piles around the world become even more empty when we look at the realities of Iran and the people running the show there. Check this latest ration of noise:

Iran is so powerful today that no country would dare attack it, President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said Sunday during an annual army parade.

"Iran's army is so mighty today that no enemy can have a foul thought of invading Iran's territory," the Iranian leader said, according to state media.
CNN: Iran too 'mighty' to attack

Ahmadinejad cracks me up.

We could solve this with seven simple words: "If you build it, we will come." That should be our national policy on the matter. No clarification needed. No modifiers. No conditions. Plain and simple. When ever the question of Iran and nuclear weapons comes up, those seven words are the response, substituting "they" for "you" where appropriate.

But that would also require a real leader in the White House. One with a basic understanding of the real world and some focus on the security of Israel as well as our own national interests. And one with the backbone to follow up on those words. Unfortunately the current President is lacking in all those areas.

Ahmadinejad knows this too.

Obama's views on Iran are "utterly immature" and comprised of "formulations empty of all content."
- From a translation of an interview given by French President Nicolas Sarkozy
