Iran Shows Obama How It's Done

Iran says can destroy Israel in week

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's chief of staff, Esfandiar Rahim Mashaei, said Wednesday that if Israel attacked Iran it would be destroyed within a week.

Face it, no matter what we do or don't do, there are going to be a lot of people out there that will never like America. If they are not going to like us, hopefully we behave in such a way that they at least respect us. For those that will never like us or respect us, they need to fear us. They need to know that if they mess with us they will pay a price.

That may not be the way you want the world to be but that is the reality. Obama gets 3 strikes on this. He wants everyone to like us but it is stunningly clear that that will not happen. In fact, it is apparent that even less people respect America anymore. Anti-Americanism is on the rise worldwide. And sadly, those that don't like us or respect us also do not fear us. They are laughing at us.

Read Charles Krauthammer's new column called The Fruits of Weakness.

This is not just an America in decline. This is an America in retreat -- accepting, ratifying and declaring its decline, and inviting rising powers to fill the vacuum.

Nor is this retreat by inadvertence. This is retreat by design and, indeed, on principle. It's the perfect fulfillment of Obama's adopted Third World narrative of American misdeeds, disrespect and domination from which he has come to redeem us and the world.
