    Default Obama says Iran shouldn’t misinterpret U.S. response to Syria

    President Obama declared that the United States is still prepared to act militarily to stop Iran from developing nuclear weapons despite the decision to pursue a diplomatic deal and not strike Syria over its alleged use of chemical weapons. He also acknowledged that his approach to the Syria crisis has been uneven, but defended it as producing the right results...

    But Obama said Iran should not interpret the diplomatic response — coming after he threatened to use strikes — as suggesting that the United States wouldn’t attack Iran to stop the development of nuclear weapons.
    “I think what the Iranians understand is that the nuclear issue is a far larger issue for us than the chemical weapons issue, that the threat . . . against Israel that a nuclear Iran poses is much closer to our core interests,” Obama said. “My suspicion is that the Iranians recognize they shouldn’t draw a lesson that we haven’t struck [Syria] to think we won’t strike Iran.”

    Obama now threatens Iran with military force after backing off on Syria. I'm not suggesting the US should start any new wars, but this kind of rhetoric makes Obama look like a cartoonish buffoon.
    The problem with quotes on the internet is that you can never be certain they're authentic.
