The french premier apparently wasn't impressed with The Anointed One's empty rhetoric and low-power cognitive impulses.
|Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., met with Sarkozy in July and they are said to have discussed Iran at length.French authorities are said to be concerned that the international community doesn't take the Iranian threat seriously enough. French intelligence has concluded that Iran has already obtained up to 40% of the enriched uranium it needs for a bomb, the newspaper reports, and will have obtained the rest next summer."According to the reports reaching Israel, Sarkozy told Obama at that meeting that if the new American president elected in November changed his country's policy toward Iran, that would be 'very problematic,'" Ha'aretz reports. "Until now, the five permanent members of the UN Security Council plus Germany have tried to maintain a united front on Iran. But according to the senior Israeli source, Sarkozy fears that Obama might 'arrogantly' ignore the other members of this front and open a direct dialogue with Iran without preconditions."|
The Obama-Bots love to say that we got into Iraq and Afghanistan under false pretenses. However, it's important to point out that Hussein's regime was a serious threat in the region and, Bush gave him 18 months to pull his WMD's out and ship them off to Syria. Using the Left's logic, we shouldn't have even attacked Germany during WWII. They act like it's never a legitimate use of force to take down a hostile and belligerent regime.
But hey - Obama is preying on most people's ignorance of official diplomacy. There have been years of parlance with rogue regimes - and sometimes talk just doesn't work.
