President Obama Says “I Don’t Bluff”

Posted by madjillmom on March 4, 2012

In a recent interview with PresBO, regarding Iran and Israel, he tells us Israel know he doesn’t bluff.  That was the quote that got the most press.  Right after saying that, he goes on to tell us this:

“I also don’t, as a matter of sound policy, go around advertising exactly what our intentions are. But I think both the Iranian and the Israeli governments recognize that when the United States says it is unacceptable for Iran to have a nuclear weapon, we mean what we say.”

So we now understand that you shouldn’t advertise exactly what are intentions are.  Obama says it is sound policy to not tell your enemies what you are going to do.  Sounds good to me.  Then why have we told the Taliban and the other bad guys in the region when we are leaving.  Many have questioned giving that kind of information to the crazies in the area.  If the bad guys didn’t know when we were leaving, it might be easier to handle situations like the uproar over the burning Korans.  Afghanistan’s people know that as soon as we leave, those who helped us will be called to account.  Some know that an overt act against American Soldiers will serve them well when we leave.
