As Iran happily enriches weapons-grade uranium and tests long range missiles, Barack Obama is getting tired of holding out his arms for an unreciprocated hug from the terrorist state. Stopping just short of using the dreaded presidential frowny face, Obama has now announced that he will "ratchet up the pressure and see how Tehran responds."
Presumably, they'll respond much the same way the French knights did in "Monty Python and the Holy Grail," and call the president a "wiper of other people's bottoms" whose "mother was a hamster and father smelled of elderberries."
And just what "pressure" the president intends to "ratchet up" is something of a mystery.
Neither Russia nor China is on board for sanctions, and Obama's only threat to Iran is that he hopes to talk the UN into writing a stinging letter. Meanwhile, Ahmadinejad is loading his catapults with nuclear cows, confident that Obama will - once again - "run away!!!!"
