    Obama is actually well liked and quite popular among Israelis. American Jews dig him too.

    Not surprising.

    The ugly reality is, the Israelis can't stop the Iranian program. They'll only tick them off. So they are trying to manipulate the west into taking care of Iran for them by threatening to take unilateral action that will wreck the world economy.

    As much as it pains me to praise Obama, he's got it about right. He got the Europeans to go along with economic sanctions that are hurting Iran, and that will bring the Mullahs to the negotiating table eventually...

    I don't think we are going to be able to keep the Mullahs from eventually getting the Cutting Edge Weapon of 1945, because the technology is just too easy to produce.
