When Barack Obama was first elected, he was championed worldwide as the man destined to lead us into an era of global peace, with the rights of the dispossessed elevated at the expense of the very wealthy. Awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for what he was going to do, rather than what he had already accomplished, the Progressives finally had the man of their choosing leading the most powerful nation on earth. The future looked bright for those who believed global peace could be established by wishful thinking.

President Obama’s foreign policy, in his own words, is this: “Don’t do stupid shit.” Unfortunately, that’s all he seems capable of doing—”stupid shit.” Vacillating and indecisive, Obama has backed the wrong horse in the Middle east repeatedly—first in Libya, then in Egypt, and finally favoring Hamas over Israel. Systematically downgrading our military, while threats from Russia, Iran, and ISIS have escalated, his strategy of leading from behind has been a colossal failure. We are in full scale retreat worldwide. American leadership, which has been present since World War II, is no longer predominant or even highly valued. Obama is neither feared nor respected, creating an enormous power vacuum destined to be filled by those intent on our destruction.

While Russian aggression threaten Ukraine and other nations in Eastern Europe, ISIS and Iran threaten the Middle East, and China grows strong, Obama and his inept advisors have focused on global warming. Now, well into the sixth year of his Presidency, not even his stalwart Kool-Aid drinkers can point to one accomplishment worthy of a Nobel Peace Prize. Even worse, as the anniversary of 9/11 looms, we are no better prepared than we were when the Jihadists struck us in Benghazi. The only good news is this: all we have to weather is another two years of his feckless leadership.

According to credible sources, Iran will have nuclear weapons by April 2012 at the latest. Intelligence reaching President Barak Obama is that by that time, Iran will already have five nuclear bombs or warheads. When that happens—and it’s inevitable—military action against Iran would generate a dangerous level of radioactive contamination across the Gulf region. Because this is the main source of the world’s energy, military intervention at that point would be unthinkable.

On Sunday, November 13, President Obama said that economic sanctions had taken an “enormous bite” out of Iran’s economy. He also said that the “U.S. is united with Russian and Chinese leaders in ensuring Iran does not develop an atomic weapon and unleash an arms race across the Middle East.” He spoke after talking to Russian President Dmitry Medvedev and Chinese President Hu Jintao at the Asian Pacific Economic Cooperation summit in Hawaii. The conversation centered on new evidence submitted by the International Atomic Energy Agency, indicating that Iran was engaged in clandestine efforts to build a bomb.

Obama said Russian and Chinese leaders shared the goal of keeping a bomb out of Iran’s hands. As far as sanctions are concerned, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov told a news conference that sanctions had failed, and “now the problem should be solved though diplomatic channels.” Other than Obama, most agree that sanctions have not worked.

For the first time, however, the President stated that a nuclear Iran would be a threat to the United States. “We are not taking any options off the table. Iran with nuclear weapons would pose a threat not only to the region but also to the United States.”

Jewish leaders were informed by the Obama administration that the U.S. had intelligence there was no more than a couple of months to strike down Iran before it was too late. Israel was told the military option would no longer be viable after April, when Iran is armed with nuclear bombs or warheads. The window of opportunity to stop Iran is closing fast, especially for Israel. But each option has significant negative repercussions for Israel.

If Israel does nothing, Iran will be a nuclear adversary in four months. With Iran’s stated position of annihilating Israel, doing nothing in untenable.

Striking could cripple Iran’s nuclear capability, but just for a short period. If Israel strikes, it will have a galvanizing affect for the entire Arab, Egyptian, and Persian community, and Israel might have to face another war with enemies coming from all sides, which is what many militant Muslim jihadists desire.

Israel’s’ future is in jeopardy, and the threat to the U.S. is real. For decades, Christians have been talking about Armageddon, hoping it would come in their lifetime. They may get their wish. It could be just around the corner.
