Biden - 'Hey Israel! Sorry we screwed up!'

I've known David Makovsky for nearly 40 years, since he was a student at a Jerusalem yeshiva sending dispatches to Jewish media. I can't recall him ever getting something so wrong.

On Thursday night, US Vice President Joe Biden addressed the Washington Institute, where Makovsky is one of the scholars. In essence, Biden said, 'Sorry Israel, we screwed up. Iran is now a nuclear power and there's nothing you can do about it.'
"Let's get something straight so we don't kid each other," Biden said. "They already have paved a path to a bomb's worth of material. Iran could get there now if they walked away in two to three months without a deal."
Critics have noted that this is an apparent backing down from Obama's stated position that he would not allow Iran to develop a nuclear weapon, but Biden said that policy still stands.
"President Obama, decided for the first time — people forget this — to make it an explicit, declared policy of the United States of America, no such policy existed before President Obama uttered it — that all instruments of American power to prevent — not contain, not contain — to prevent a nuclear-armed Iran would be used to prevent that from happening," Biden said.
Let's face reality: Iran has become a borderline nuclear power on Obama's watch, and despite Obama's pronouncements, there is nothing Obama will do other than talk to stop them. I think it's going to take a bit more than that. 

What could go wrong?

GW Bush didn't utter the "No Iranian Nuke" policy, rather he implemented it. Iran, from 2003 onward, was increasingly surrounded by U.S. and allied forces... Iraq, Khasakhstan, Qatar/UAE, etc etc. The Obama/Clinton/KhmerRouge Kerry Posse's pulling out of the U.S. Military meant that ONLY WORDS would be said about Iran's Nukes. Everybody who supported or benefitted from these U.S. Democrats repeating the S.E. Asia slaughter set-up... Good luck. Make a sign of life if you'd like to participate in turning the Murdering Progressive Left back... I can put you in touch.
