Obama Shows Signs of Waking Up to Iran Nuclear Intentions

President Obama's statements were not as clear as Israeli PM Netanyahu's statements yesterday with regard to Iran's intentions, but it was something. After months of placating Ahmadinajad in a series of soft, muted statements, Obama took the occasion of the G-20 meetings to make a strong statement about a new secret Iranian nuclear processing plant.

I think President Obama is serious, but it's likely the Iranians don't. AFter all, they were receiving quite a different message for too long. Bibi's statements yesterday at the U.N may have lit a fire under some highly positioned U.S. butts, and it is hoped that the hemmorhoids Netanyahu created in his powerful and lucid speech will continue to keep the American conscience awake.
