Four more years of Obama makes another Middle East war more likely
What are the likely consequences of four more years of Hussein Obama? Here's a Fox News analysis
that looks dismal.
- The big loser is Israel. It now has to make a choice – does
it accept a practically nuclear Iran and keep President Obama’s support,
or does it try to stop Iran unilaterally and risk Obama’s abandonment?
Israel itself goes to the polls in a few months and this will surely be a
- The big winner is Iran. Obama will likely make a deal with the
Iranian regime. In exchange for Iran stopping just short of nuclear
weapons – just one screw’s turn away – the president will drop sanctions
and restore relations. It will look like a diplomatic victory for Obama
personally, but what it means is in essence a nuclear Iran becomes a
nuclear weapons state and can dominate the oil-rich Persian Gulf. The
world’s energy security will to a great extent be in Iran’s hands.
- The big question mark is the Middle East. Do Iran’s neighbors
go nuclear themselves, creating a nuclear arms race in one of the most
dangerous and economically important parts of the world? Or do they
accommodate Iran, and let Iran dominate the region from Iraq to Egypt?
The Arab spring nations will move into increasingly towards chaos and
Islamism. They will blame Israel and the US for their economic woes. As
America retreats from the region, Israel will be isolated. Another Arab
Israeli war is likely.
What could go wrong?
