Ralph Waldo Emerson, Obama And Iran

A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds, adored by little statesmen and philosophers and divines.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Legal Insurrection notes the trail that Obama has consistently followed with Iran:
From the campaign promise of negotiations without precondition, to the near silence when Iran erupted with protests last June over election fraud, to the setting of meaningless deadlines, to the false crisis with Israel over East Jerusalem, to the apology tours, at every step this administration has sent the wrong messages to Iran and the world.
And those messages have been heard loud and clear. In another post, Legal Insurrection links to an article in the London Times: Iranians train Taliban to use roadside bombs

Iran has no illusions about its goal.
The same cannot be said about Obama.
