"Final nuclear victory"

Iranian president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, recently said, "Everybody has understood that Iran is the number one power in the world," and, "The Iranian nation is on the verge of the final nuclear victory and no power can stop this nation" (Australian).

What everyone understands is that Ahmadinejad is a big windbag, but this windbag is on the verge of becoming a nuclear windbag if no one stops him. This is not the time to elect a novice to the office of President. We need experience, and experience in the Illinois state legislature just doesn't cut it!

Some people have compared Barack Obama to John F. Kennedy, both of whom were relatively inexperienced. But what are they saying? That anyone with very little experience can succeed at being President of the United States just because Kennedy did it? What nonsense!

Besides, John F. Kennedy’s father had been an ambassador to Great Britain which presumably means that foreign affairs was in the air at the Kennedy household, JFK had served in the military (unlike Obama), was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in 1947 and to the U.S. Senate in 1952. I would take Kennedy’s experience over Obama’s any day.

The difference between Obama and Kennedy is a stark one!

Obama would have us courtsey to the Arab world while bombing our allies in Pakistan (he said so himself). He would have us leave Iraq, not understanding that militant muslims seek to destroy us! As long as we are fighting them there, they are less able and less likely to attack us here. What would he do if Iran was close to developing a nuclear weapon?

We know what Kennedy did! He had a nuclear stand-off with the Soviets AKA the Cuban Missile Crisis. I think Joe Lieberman and John McCain are the only liberals who would have the strength to do that again. I know Obama would not, as he has signaled to all of the world that he wishes to cut bait in Iraq, even though we are making tremendous strides towards stability.
