Following up on my previous story about the Hollywood style assassination of an Iranian nuclear scientists, I have been thinking what it would mean if the U.S. actually was involved in it.
First off if we were involved in this bombing there is no way our government would admit it. It would create such a diplomatic nightmare for our country that we have no option but to deny it.
Now having said that, what if we were behind this attack? Well if we were then it shows a difference in policies between the current President and previous one. It would show that George Bush is a man more for a guns-a-blazing, costly war solution, where as Barack Obama is more into the covert, keep it simple and clean approach.
The Obama style approach is one we saw when it came to finally getting Osama bin Laden and when it came to the fall of Gadaffi. The Bush style approach is one we saw in action in Iraq for the past several years. Our country is still paying for that war and almost 4,500 U.S. soldiers paid the ultimate price for.
If I had to make the choice of which way to go, I would take the Obama style any day of the week. It’s swift, clean and costs much less in terms of money and life. The other point to make here is that this style of approach may have set Iran’s nuclear ambitions back a few years by simply killing one guy. It’s not like you can go to Craig’s List and just take out an ad for a nuclear scientists. They are hard to come by and now Iran needs to replace this one.
So if the U.S. was behind this assassination, I got to applaud our nation. We finally realized full blown war isn’t the only answer to these type of problems. Of course that could change this time next year if President Obama is not given a second term. That’s something to think about when heading to the polls this fall.
