Mark Levin and Ralph Peters appeared on Fox News’ Hannity, Tuesday night, to talk about Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech before congress.
“Past presidents have worked with the Russians and any other government to try and prevent these third world actors from getting a nuclear weapon,” Levin pointed out.
“The problem is our foreign policy is such a shambles there’s nobody to work with.”
The conservative radio host said that he read the World threat assessment of the US intelligence community the government put out, last year. He learned that Tehran has made technical progress in a number of areas including building missiles that are inherently capable of delivering weapons of mass destruction. “Iran has the largest has the means and motivation to develop longer range missiles including an intercontinental ICBM that hits Europe and the United States,” Levin noted.
“This is no joke and I’m scared to death with this president in office,” said Levin.
Lt. Col. Ralph Peters (retired) was also on Hannity tonight to discuss the speech.
“Obama is incapable of learning. We have to recognize that. Six years into his term, he still thinks he can make friends with Iran.”
“It is stunning,” he added. “For Americans, the most important point that Bibi Netanyahu made today was that in the Middle East today, dealing with Iran and the Islamic State, the enemy of my enemy is my enemy. Obama just can’t figure that out.”
“I am convinced Sean – absolutely convinced – that Obama, Kerry and company have accepted that Iran will get a bomb – they just don’t want to happen on his watch. They want a decent interval of denial. And meanwhile as you heard – our president’s — pathetic, spiteful, rebuttal…” Peters said ruefully. (Obama’s reaction to Netanyahu’s speech, here.)
“Obama is a spiteful failure of a president and we just have to get through the next two years,” Peters declared..
He later noted that “if Israel disappeared off the face of the earth tomorrow, Obama would not shed a tear.”
“Today when he was being so petty and spiteful and angry about Netanyahu’s speech,” Peters continued, “wouldn’t it have been great to see that kind of flaring anger from Obama about Vladimir Putin’s aggression – or at ISIS’ beheadings – we’ve never seen that kind of anger from him – but he directs it toward Bibi Netanyahu, and I can only say that — I’m ashamed and embarrassed at this president and I am on Israel’s side. I think most Americans are, and the one thing Netanyahu did accomplish today with that masterful, forceful, direct speech, was he made it almost impossible for Senate Democrats – for most of them – to vote for a bad deal.”
