Major & critical foreign policy test for Obama

The most pressing and critical challenge to Obama in the conduct of international relations will be, I believe, the question of an Iran that is reportedly developing nuclear weapons with the repeatedly stated objective of "wiping off the map" the only Jewish homeland on earth, which is also a close military, political and diplomatic ally of the USA. John Bolton, a former ambassador of the United States to the United Nations, was reported by a British newspaper Daily Telegraph in June as saying that he believed Israel could attack Iran after the American presidential election, but before George Bush's successor is sworn in.

United State's vital foreign policy concerns do not change whether its a Republican or Democrat president.
For example, it was almost inevitable there would be an armed American response to 9/11 no matter who was the President.
But there may be differences in emphasis and approach.

Obama would face very heavy political pressure if inattention or perceived weak policy leads to an Iran with nuclear-tipped balistics missiles aimed at Israel.
