|U.S. Sailors forced to their knees in surrender to Iranians in Persian Gulf.|
OBAMA: My hope is that building on this deal we can continue to have conversations with Iran that incentivize them to behave differently in the region, to be less aggressive, less hostile, more cooperative, to operate the way we expect nations in the international community to behave.Just two weeks ago Iran fired rockets near U.S. warships in neutral waters. Obama did nothing. This was preceded by a ballistic missile test that was forbidden by UN resolutions. Again, Obama did nothing.
Now we have the shame of U.S. sailors taken prisoner by Iran. They were released but the message was clear: Americans are weak and Iran can do anything. A female sailor was even forced to cover her head in obedience to Islamic law. How does Obama feel about women being forced to obey?
But worse still is the damage to our prestige and our standing with Persian Gulf allies. What does it say if America is so weak that they submit to this kind of humiliation? To what degree will allies stand with us now after this?
This is just the latest taste from a bitter cup of shame Obama has poured. His ultimate goal is the weakening of the U.S. military and this shocking photo fits in with his plans. Obama continues to bow before our enemies and shame us before our friends. The consequences will be bloody!
