Syria is the brown-colored country on the left (I circled the name to make it easier). Iran in the drab-green is on the right.
You see White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough was on Meet the Press yesterday and said an impending U.S. attack on Syria would send a message to Iranian leaders that they should not feel free to develop nuclear weapons and that “to communicate with them we have to be very clear, very forthright. This is an opportunity to be both with the Iranians....”
This is just one more example of the White House getting desperate. If they want to "send a message" to Iran, you don't attack Syria. That's like being diagnosed with a heart condition and sending your cousin in to have the surgery.
Iran has already gotten all the messages it needs from this White House. Five years of appeasement is a strong message.
Allowing terrorists to get away with killing four Americans in Benghazi a year ago tomorrow sent a message to Iran.
On again, off again talks while Iran continues to develop its nuclear program all the while they are laughing at this weak President.
Stopping an Israeli attack on the Iranian Nukes because it was an American election year delivered a message to the Iranians
President Barack Obama refused to let Israel strike Iran last year despite the Israeli prime minister’s willingness to sign off on such an attack, according to statements made by a former top Israeli military leader earlier this week.Bombing Syria, who is not a threat to this country will send the wrong message to Iran. It sends a message that this President is frightened of Iran so it attacks the weaker country--Syria.
Giora Eiland, a former national security adviser to the Israeli government and a retired Major General in the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF), told the Israeli press that Obama “vetoed” the strike, which was planned to take place at the height of the 2012 election cycle.
Truth be told the Iranians do not need any more messages from President Obama, their mailbox is full of messages this is a weak president without the resolve to protect the American people, but with a huge ego so he is lashing out at Syria to look strong. That is not a good enough reason to go to war.
