So sometime on November 1st, Iranian jets fired twice on an American drone that was doing surveillance in the Persian Gulf, which, in case you didn’t know it, is NOT in Iranian airspace.
Iran, whose soldiers are just as incompetent as one would expect, missed the drone…both times.
Under normal circumstances (well, is having a competent president with a backbone really that normal anymore?), let me rephrase, under REAGAN circumstances this would not have happened.
Of course, under REAGAN circumstances, the incident in Libya would not have happened either, because the terrorists (yes, I just said that. Say it with me Obama, T-E-R-R-O-R-I-S-T-S, that’s what they are) would have been over in less than an hour, with Marines and the CIA storming in to protect our consulate.
But the real issue here is A.) that clearly sanctions against Iran are NOT working as Obama has claimed and B.) what is America planning on doing about it.
The Pentagon announced the incident as the administration imposed a new round of financial sanctions against Iranian officials and entities. They marked the first sanctions since President Obama’s re-election Tuesday. According to the Treasury Department, the move was “related to the Iranian government’s human rights abuses, its support of terrorism and Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps.”– Fox News
Oh yay, more sanctions in response to an act of war.
I’m sure Iran is terrified.
You know what really bothers me about this?
The fact that we are just now hearing about this, 7 days after it happened. In this world of 24/7 news, that takes a concerted effort from someone, either the White House or CNN themselves, keeping the news quiet.
Why would they do that?
Well it wouldn’t exactly do wonders for the Messiah in Chief if, 5 days before the election, Iran attacked us and the voters found out.
The whole thing makes me rather sick.
Unlike the attack in Benghazi, which was not directly carried out by Libya’s military (as far as we know now), this WAS an act of war by Iran. Their military fired on our drone, for no reason.
Obama, this is on you. You got re-elected, because apparently the level of intelligence in this country is slipping, so what are you planning to do about this?
Maybe play another round of golf?
