Obama fails to understand the threat posed by Iran [Letter]

Barack ObamaRobert L. Ehrlich Jr.Iran

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.

    We can't trust Iran, but war is not inevitable [Letter]

    Should we trust the Iranian government? No — nor should we totally trust any other government. I always remember President Reagan's statement about Russia when he said "trust but verify" ("The nuclear deal with Iran," Nov. 25).

    The commentary, "What really happened in Geneva? Ask Iran," (Dec. 6), could not be further from the truth when it rails against the recent nuclear accord with Iran. In fact, the deal is a win-win for both sides, helping to ensure a peaceful resolution to the conflict.
