The retreat of nuclear America

In the Washington Times, former US ambassador to the United Nations John Bolton discusses the folding up of the US's nuclear umbrella and its implications for American's allies. Curiously, Bolton does not discuss Israel or Iran. Perhaps there is no need to discuss it. Europe and Japan, and several other countries in the Far East, are only now waking up to the implications that we started feeling here in Israel months ago. For if the START treaty made it clear that Obama was going to abandon Europe to its own devices, it's been clear to us here in Israel that we would be abandoned to our own devices almost from Day One under this administration. Obama has no sense of the urgency of stopping Iran. He apparently believes that even if Iran does - God forbid - go nuclear, he, the great talker, will convince them not to use the weapons.

What could go wrong?
