Columnist Robert L. Ehrlich Jr.'s commentary on President Barack Obama's foreign policy was concise and right on target ("Obama's miserable foreign policy record," Dec. 10).

What we have in this president is an unprepared, vacillating man with a poor grasp of history and precedent when it comes to the Middle East.

If the Israelis can't stop the Iranian threat by themselves, Mr. Obama will be long gone from office when Israel is attacked or a nuclear suitcase bomb is detonated in a New York subway.
