Recent naval drills by Iranian naval ships across the Strait of Hormuz and this weeks docking of two Iranian at a Syrian naval base is indicative of Iranian military capability. The limited and zero US military response to these aggressive and overly assertive Iranian military activities tells away of significant cowardice to Iranian military capabilities.
US intelligence officials in February 2012 reiterated the need for dialogue with Iran over its nuclear ambitions besides reported they had substantial intelligence on Iran among which nuclear weapons development in Iran were regarded as far fetched.
Iranian leadership extremist doctrines, support of Islamic militants across the world, and vengefulness is not indifferent, rather a common cause that hopes the destruction of Israel and United States is realized sooner than later.
US is adamant to conduct a military or preventive attack on Iran. Such an attack is legit and could win support from its key allies. However, the silence and diplomatic route taken by the US is surprisingly cowardly and unexpected. Every day Iran is inching closer to nuclear weaponry. New long range missiles development and attempts to destroy Israel are escalating.
Iran sending military help to Syria is indicative of military muscle and a warning to Britain, France, and the US, that there is very little they can do about it. For the first time in the century, US is cowering at the thought of hefty causalities inflicted by a superiority armed, willing, and daring Muslim army. On the other hand, this silence is suspect and would finally unearth the subtly dangerous links of the US president Obama with the Muslim faith.
Obama maybe waging a proxy war on the American nation giving the extremists world the satisfaction they have long sought ‘that America will no-longer be a threat to their activities.’ Obama has rejected Israel’s preventive attack on Iran too often while giving lip service to Syrians and Afghans. This silence and inertia by the once renowned super-power is akin cowardice.
