    Once given the keys to the Whitehouse something happens to presidents. Even leftists like Obama are given the kind of information largely kept from the public and that information is about the primary threats to the US all over the world. I am sure Iran is at the top of that list and the US will be forced to deal with it even if we don't want to. While we are elated that the war in Iraq is winding down everyone knows there is a great possibility that Iran will simply take over where we leave off. However successful we are lately in Pakistan Afganistan, Iran is also involved there. The Sunni know what the threat is and they also know how much damage Iran can do if it becomes the only declared nuclear power in the region. There are so many elements that have nothing to do with Israel but everything to do with US interests in the region. Obama could just walk away but the information he has will prevent that from happening.
