President Obama recently said, “There is no military solution” to Iran’s refusal to cease production of nuclear weapons material and, that “the only solution is an inspection agreement” which Iran’s leader recently said will never happen.

Iran has repeatedly threatened the United States and Israel with annihilation. They don’t lack the will to do so, only the means — today at least.

Since Obama’s brand of diplomacy hasn’t worked on Iran and its threat to destroy the West is real, it appears that Obama will wait until Iran shoots first. Even the Old West cowboys knew that when you come in second in a gun fight, you don’t get a second chance.

For over 10 years, Iran has denied inspection of its nuclear facilities by an international inspection commission. Iran has something to hide.
