Senior Obama adviser, Valerie Jarrett, recently told ABC News that "we have a strong force in the making, and Iran will back down." It's possible she has intelligence unavailable to the general public, but this sounds more like wishful thinking. We've already sailed past Obama's "deadline" for forming this coalition, and Russia still shows no signs of cooperation. We've intervened against Israel's leadership to block a preemptive strike by denying our allies access to US controlled airspace. And Ahmadinejad, the duly elected leader of Iran has demonstrated no intent to comply with UN sanctions.
