"it's unlikely Obama will have fully assuaged the Gulf's
deep-seated fear of Iranian intentions in the region."My guess
is that the summit is going to leave everybody feeling a little bit
unsatisfied," said Jon Alterman, the Middle East director at the Center for
Strategic and International Studies.Just two other heads of state
— the emirs of Qatar and Kuwait — joined Obama at Camp David. Saudi
Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Oman and Bahrain all sent lower-level ...
representatives."Ernestlooks like those gulf state leaders
don't need a letter from the senate to know they are not going to get
anything from BO. They know he is out of his league.All they had to
do was see Hassan step over the red line BO drew and watch BO flinch to know
there is no spine there; BO's own weakness has spelled it out better than
any letter from the senate ever could.
Maybe the (R) Senators can write those gulf states leaders a letter letting them
know that President Obama doesn't have any authority to act on behalf of
the United States and imminent military intervention is a definite possibility.
