The Obama Administration has something of a decision to make. Will it respond to Iranian aggression and enforce Iraq’s internationally recognized borders, or will it allow the Iranian thugs to use military force against an American ally with impunity?
Obama for years declared the Iraq war to be A dumb war. A rash war. A war based not on reason but on passion, not on principle but on politics.. Indeed, in many ways that statement got him elected to the office he now occupies.
So, will he capitulate, showing our Iraqi allies that they are alone in their fight to remain free from Iranian domination, or will he respond with decisive military action? In all likelihood he will do the former, protesting diplomatically with words that will be ignored by the mullahs.
