Mideast Expert Phares: Obama Turns Blind Eye to Iranian Danger

Middle East expert Walid Phares tells Newsmax that the Obama administration is not convinced that the Iranians pose a serious danger — even as a top Iranian official declared that his country is prepared to launch a pre-emptive strike.

Phares, while noting that he believes the Iranian quest for nuclear weapons is “not stoppable,” also says a resolution passed in the U.S. Senate last week is a “message to the administration” that it is time to confront the Islamic republic before it obtains such weapons.

Coincidentally, Phares’ remarks in an exclusive interview with Newsmax.TV on Tuesday came on the same day that an Iranian official vowed that his country would take pre-emptive action against its enemies if it felt its national interests were endangered.

Remember, to the modern liberal like Obama, Iran is only reacting to the west which includes Israel. As long as the west doesn’t provoke Iran then everything will be just fine. We can learn to live with a nuclear Iran.

The modern liberal is unable to recognize threats until it is too late. The primary reason for this is that all bad behavior is only a reaction to something else. That is the foundation of modern liberalism. The bad guys cannot have an evil agenda of their own.

Who gets to have an evil agenda?

The countries and civilizations that are most successful have an evil agenda: America, Israel, Europe – the west. We know they have an evil agenda because of their success. The only way to success is through cheating in some form. So the modern liberal seeks to pull down the walls on top of himself or herself. Apparently, this delusion is so strong that they cannot see their own death as a result. Unfortunately, they pull down the walls on the rest of us too.
