The President said, Iran has to come to the realization, it is not in their best interest to acquire a nuclear weapon. The President did NOT rule out the military option. Even though Iran's military capability are substantial, it's hard to tell if the Iranians actually believe they are capable of fending off an attack by the United States. However, in today's political environment, they may feel the current President is bluffing since a very large number of American troops have been withdrawn from that part of the world.

Just to play the devil's advocate, a question, could this be a play by the President of the United States to ensure the price of a gallon of gas goes up again? It seems very unlikely the President would cause this to happen on purpose with his re-election bid later this year... With that said, this President has taken some actions in the past that don't seem to makes sense to "the People." One has to question everyone the President does, after all, a man with so little experience and some of his past is not known.
It upsets me that this question would even enter into anyone's minds but after some of the President's statements and actions is hard to figure out what the President is really up to.......
It is my hope the President is looking out for the interest of the Unites State and not trying to undermine the people for some secret agenda!
