No one should doubt that President Barack Obama is prepared to use military force to prevent Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon if sanctions and diplomacy fail, the president’s former special assistant on Iran said.
Obama has “made it very clear” that he regards a nuclear- armed Iran as so great a threat to international security that “the Iranians should never think that there’s a reluctance to use the force” to stop them
“There are consequences if you act militarily, and there’s big consequences if you don’t act,”
What is ATS view on this matter?
This psychopath obama needs to shut the f up and sit the f down before he gets us all into the deepest s we have ever been in.

I think Obama would like to take action against Iran, but is unable due to the fact that the US budget needs a cash injection to stop itself from going under.
I wouldn't be surprised if the DoD is gonna have one helluva yard sale sometime soon.

they would if they want to 'see' how another country will respond.
So for arguments sake lets use Iran as an example.
China will back Iran, so Iran has the balls to go up against the USA.
The USA nukes Iran and the country is either non-existent or useless to anyone.
So what has China learnt ?
How the USA responded and what was needed to make the USA respond.
China wouldn't be too bothered if Iran didn't exist as long as they would have lerant the logistics of what the USA had done leading up to nukes going off.
bottom line, know how your opponents are going to play before you play them !

It doesn't help that america gave Iran that drone which could easily be used to carry a nuclear missile stealthily undetected into Israel.
