AP: Yeah, Obama Is Probably Going to Let Iran Develop Nukes

We're going to become a deterrent powerhouse baby.

WASHINGTON – The Obama administration is quietly laying the groundwork for long-range strategy that could be used to contain a nuclear-equipped Iran and deter its leaders from using atomic weapons.

It's that long-range strategy that really makes me feel good about this. Their short-range strategy is crap. Keep your eye on the big prize, don't get distracted with the little details, like stopping it or something.

But if Iran stays on a nuclear arms path, the administration's only realistic choice is to deter it from using them, said Richard Kugler, a senior consultant to a policy research center at National Defense University.

Only realistic choice if you've made up your mind they're going to have them. That's what he likely meant. Yeah.

Everything really is awesome.
