Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei speaks live on television after casting his ballot in the Iranian presidential election in Tehran

In early June, Iran’s supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei told a wildly cheering crowd in Teheran that his country had nothing to fear from the United States in its development of nuclear resources. “They have renounced the idea of any military actions!” he crowed, following indecisive, dithering American responses on Syria, Iraq, Ukraine, Libya, Afghanistan the terrorist groups Hamas and Hezbollah, and even the Bowe Bergdahl negotiations. Despite the fact that President Obama publicly insists that the “military option” is still on the table regarding Iran, the leader of that radical, terrorist- supporting theocracy feels no compunction whatever about virtually daring the Americans to use it. In fact, the Teheran rally took place in front of a huge banner proclaiming “AMERICA CAN’T DO A DAMN THING!” That statement might stand as a summary to six years of Obama foreign policy.
