ANALYSIS/OPINION:

The Washington Times editorial “How to invite war? Equivocation” (March 4) is exactly right as it describes our feckless president. Weakness is provocative.

The question now is: How will the president prove to the world that he has learned and finally “gets it”? Up to now, Russia, China, Iran and Syria have all shown their disrespect and their belief that President Obama is a paper tiger with no teeth.

Mr. Obama is good at being tough with our allies, but time after time, when confronted by those hostile to the United States, he has either ignored the provocation or simply backed down.

It will take actions that show courage and resolve for those world leaders to realize that this time Mr. Obama is serious.
