    "Here is an idea for Barack Obama to salvage his tottering administration by taking a step that protects the United States and its allies," begins neoconservative scholar Daniel Pipes. "He needs a dramatic gesture to change the public perception of him as a light-weight, bumbling ideologue, preferably in an arena where the stakes are high, where he can take charge, and where he can trump expectations."

    "Such an opportunity does exist," Pipes writes. "Obama can give orders for the U.S. military to destroy Iran’s nuclear-weapon capacity."

    "Just as 9/11 caused voters to forget George W. Bush’s meandering early months, a strike on Iranian facilities would dispatch Obama’s feckless first year down the memory hole and transform the domestic political scene," he writes.
