Dr. Frager: Obama Needs to Learn from Kennedy

President Kennedy would never have enabled the Iranians to obtain weapons grade uranium, says Zionist activist.

Zionist activist Dr. Joseph Frager compared Sunday between President John F. Kennedy's handling of the Cuban missile crisis and President Barack Obama's handling of crises with Iran in the Middle East and Venezuela.

"It has been nearly 50 years since President John Kennedy was shot on a Texas street in a motorcade,” write Frager. “One of John F. Kennedy's highlights as president was his handling of the Cuban Missile Crisis. He stood up to the Russians and their Premier Khrushchev and the President won. The missiles were returned to Russia and a potential world war was averted.

“Now, 50 years later, a potential new Cuban Missile Crisis may be brewing in Venezuela. This time around it is not the Russians who are causing all the trouble. It is the Iranians. It seems at least one boat was found with highly sophisticated missiles capable of carrying nuclear warheads in or near Venezuela. These were Iranian produced missiles.

“The Iranians play all kinds of games with their boats and ships by changing flags with the wind to avoid detection and sanctions imposed restrictions. It is hard to keep up with them and indeed America was trying to prevent this activity when President Rouhani went on the charm offensive and completely undid the West with his gamesmanship. Truth be told it is not the first time Rouhani has done this.

“As reports surface daily that President Obama is going to further loosens sanction and make a bad deal, the Iranians are surging to the finish line in making weapons grade uranium. It is estimated by some that this red line will be crossed in or around the week of the 50th anniversary of President Kennedy's assassination.

“Isn't it ironic that instead of learning any lessons from President Kennedy, President Obama continues his pursuit of a diplomatic non-solution? If President Kennedy was in office today, do you think for a minute he would enable the Iranians to obtain weapons grade uranium and allow missiles that at the very least can cause an EMP (electromagnetic pulse) blackout across the entire country and pose a threat of nuclear warheads directed at the USA?

“Obviously, he would take on the Iranians the same way he took on the Russians. President Obama should learn many lessons from President Kennedy. It is reported that the Saudis have purchased nuclear warheads from Pakistan. If the President does not take a page out of President Kennedy's playbook then he risks not only nuclear weapons pointed at the USA from Venezuela but proliferation of nuclear weapons in every country in the Middle East. This is an intolerable situation. The President should think twice before he makes a bad deal with the Iranians.”

Dr. Frager said last year that Israel should take independent action against Iran's nuclear program before US elections.
