Iran Mocks 'Red Line' Obama Print E-mail

President Hassan Rouhani of Iran is taunting President Barry Obama in regards to his "red lines" on foreign policy matters.

According to the Daily Caller, "Iranian President Hassan Rouhani mocked President Barack Obama and ripped America’s strategy to destroy the terrorist group the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) in an interview with NBC News Wednesday."

Rouhani is quoted as saying that, “If they want to use planes and if they want to use unmanned planes so that nobody is injured from the Americans, is it really possible to fight terrorism without any hardship, without any sacrifice? Is it possible to reach a big goal without that? In all regional and international issues, the victorious one is the one who is ready to do sacrifice.”

As reported by the Daily Caller, "Rouhani, who called America’s coalition to defeat ISIS “ridiculous,” also subtly ridiculed Obama’s failure to enforce his own red lines, like the one he made in 2012 that if Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad used chemical weapons against his own people, America would use military force against the strongman. After the Syrian regime used chemical weapons against its own people in 2013, Obama opted against air strikes after initially threatening to respond militarily."

Iran insists that if they say they have drawn a "red line" against their enemies, they could not hesitate to strike if their bluff gets called.
