We all knew that Iran’s mullahs wanted a President Obama more than they wanted a President McCain. Thanks to President Obama’s recent chairing of the U.N. Security Council meeting, we now know why. Jack Kelly reports that French President Sarkozy is fuming that President Obama didn’t jump the Iranians during the meeting on nuclear nonproliferation:

What infuriated President Sarkozy was that at the time Mr. Obama said those words, Mr. Obama knew the mullahs in Iran had a secret nuclear weapons development site, and he didn’t call them on it.

‘President Obama dreams of a world without weapons…but right in front of us two countries are doing the exact opposite,” Mr. Sarkozy said. “Iran since 2005 has flouted five Security Council resolutions,” Mr. Sarkozy said. “North Korea has been defying Council resolutions since 1993.”

“What good has proposals for dialogue brought the international community?” he asked rhetorically. “More uranium enrichment and declarations by the leaders of Iran to wipe out a UN member state off the map.”

It’s embarrassing that the French are right in calling the U.S. weak against the terrorists. President Obama has been a mountain of jello since becoming Commander-In-Chief. He’s waffling on what to do in Afghanistan. He’s been irresponsible with Iran, especially now that we know that he knew about the second reactor.

Instead of using a stick, preferably one with a hard metal alloy in it, President Obama wants to talk with them. It’s obvious that President Obama didn’t learn the Reagan Doctrine, which is to win fights by intimidating our enemies into major concessions. Enemies won’t cave unless they know that they can’t win. Right now, Iran knows that they can’t lose because of President Obama’s Alice in Wonderland foreign policies.

The Wall Street Journal is reporting why President Obama didn’t ambush the Iranians at the nonproliferation meeting:

President Sarkozy in particular pushed hard. He had been “frustrated” for months about Mr. Obama’s reluctance to confront Iran, a senior French government official told us, and saw an opportunity to change momentum. But the Administration told the French that it didn’t want to “spoil the image of success” for Mr. Obama’s debut at the U.N. and his homily calling for a world without nuclear weapons, according to the Paris daily Le Monde. So the Iran bombshell was pushed back a day to Pittsburgh, where the G-20 were meeting to discuss economic policy.

It’s sickening to hear that President Obama put a higher priority on image than on being tough. Confronting Iran at the U.N. would’ve gotten the world’s attention. Not confronting them will be taken as a sign of weakness by Iran’s mullahs. They now know that they can do whatever they want whenever they want.

Then again, we shouldn’t expect more from President Obama. After all, that’s what obedient little lapdogs do.
