“October Surprise” Will Obama Attack Iran?
New Zeal ^ | October 11, 2012 | Trevor Loudon

Posted on 10/11/2012 12:48:23 PM PDT by Mortrey

"Obama loves Russia. Moscow loves Obama, because he is destroying the United States military, just as Moscow has always wanted. If Obama gets four more years, America’s once mighty military will become nothing more than a strike force for the United Nations – which is effectively controlled by Russia and China."

He won’t. Too much apologizing to go back on.

I really don't understand how attacking Iran would help him.

Lefties would be outraged, and the right would know it was a cynical maneuver.

Odumbo will attack anything and anyone if it will help him get re-elected...or whatever his master Soros wants.

He will never attack his beloved islamic countries.
It would be more likely for him to attack Israel, under the guise they were going to attack Iran, or round up all Christians for spreading hate.

More likely that he and the Iranian mullahs will cut a deal for Iran to say it is halting it’s nuclear program “in order to show the world how peaceful we are.” Then, Obama can claim credit — and the mullahs can go on making their weapons while showing their support for a fellow tribesman.

Don’t think so. It will totally alienate his radical left base

Doubt it. Barry's October Surprise, if he has one, could conceivably be a ground troop invasion in West Libya, something protracted, an Air Strike won't do.

He’s already done nothing about Christopher Stevens. Even with no Jarrett, he would not act against Iran.

Iran promised to attack US interest world wide including waking up Hezzbollah sleeper cells here.

No chance... Obama would never do something that would be helpful to Israel.

His October Surprise is going to be a speech at Ohio State promising to “forgive all your student loans”.

Yep, I suspect any "Oct Surprise" will be a strike on the Libyan terrorists who killed the Ambassador. War with Iran is too much for even his mindless worshipers to swallow.

This stuck out:

“However, if Obama attacks Iran – just enough to give them a bloody nose – this could well be enough to give him the lift in the polls he needs to win the upcoming election.

Moscow orders Iran to take a small hit, Obama wins four more years. He then guts the US military, leaving Moscow, Beijing and Tehran to do whatever they like, with no fear of retaliation.”

What would he DO with an attacked Iran ?

There's still a couple of months left in his term and he would have to actually DO something besides attack.

It could/would be proven later that he attacked for purely political purposes and I think THAT would lead to SOME kind of reprimand or charge (wishfully thinking here .. ).

Romney would have a clear path to bringing charges against a whole SLEW of ex-cadre that we'd prpbably learn a few had disappeared.


The complications to starting a war at this point is pure insanity.

zero however is not known for sane actions ... why he doesn't even play the plausable deniability game the X 42's were so adept

While I wouldn’t put much past Barry, I think it’s getting too far into October for something on the scale of an attack on Iran. If it starts right before the election—now less than a month away—but isn’t over, or goes poorly, I think people will see through it. One of the Dem talking points is that Romney is too militaristic—this wouldn’t help.

Also, although Obama will happily lie to you, and use legalistic mechanisms to kick you in the nuts, I don’t think he has much real fight in him. Anything beyond a remote control, supposedly surgical strike is not his style. I can’t see him getting on TV and rousing militant zeal for anything serious—that is, something with a chance of significant loss. It would be like Dukakis in a tank.

He might bomb something in Libya, perhaps an aspirin factory--and Big Media will lionize him for his "courage" and "bold statesmanship."

At this point, such an action would appeal to almost no one.

So given his recent floundering, he might actually try it. :)

The attack would have to be in retaliation for a terrible attack on us on the level of the sept 11, 2001 terror attack. So if something along those lines happens it will be a very convenient coincidence for obaddebater.

I think people are crisissed out.

Any more crises on Ubama's watch will not be looked upon kindly.

Jews make up approximately 1.5% of America’s population. The only place they might help is FL. NY is already true blue.

Ubama’s October Surprise is that he has f****d himself.

The ring Obama has been wearing for more than 30 years (it was also used as his wedding ring) is adorned with the first part of the Islamic declaration of faith, the Shahada: “There is no god except Allah.”.

Obama will never attack Iran. His October surprise is more likely to allow an attack on New York.
