IsraelNationalNews ^ | November 18, 2011

Newly acquired intelligence reports indicate several Arab countries in the Middle East are lobbying the US to strike Iran this year, Israel's Channel 10 reported.

According to the report, which is said to be making its rounds in Britain's political circles, Saudi Arabia wants the Obama administration to attack Iran's nuclear facilities before the final withdrawal of US troops from Iraq.

If the “arab nations” are so hot to strike iran, let them do it. I’m tired of us always being the heavy lifters in doing THEIR dirty work for them while continuing to load them up on aid and they use their money to finance weapons that will be our destruction or that of Israel.

The article say’s the Saudi’s want us to attack Iran before we leave Iraq.

If we attacked Iran the Saudi’s would be the first to condemn us for doing it.

And right after we do, we will be assailed as the "Great Satan" by all of the Arab nations, along with all of the members of the UN Security Council.

Oil rich dictators are used to hiring cheap labor from other countries to do their day to day jobs, so none of them has to work. Let them hire someone else.

The only way the Noble Peace Prize winner will attack Iran is if he thinks it will get him re-elected. The decision to attack Iran would not be based upon principle and a well-thought-out strategic calculus, but only upon political calculation.

Yep—muzzies are NOT our friends. And there are no moderate muzzies among the pedophile worshippers.

I think damage to America is a higher priority than reelection, at least to the socialist in our White House. If he believed an attack on Iran would cost him the election but do more harm to our country than he could do with four more years in power over us, he would attack. He sees his mission as removing the United States from the world stage because we symbolize inequality to him. He would rather see the world drop back to 610 AD with everyone equally hungry, sickly, and endangered than see everyone far better off but unequally so. Our country is a beacon of hope for individual advancement, and he sees that as something to be stamped out.

How about the Arabs fighting their own battles? I can’t see one more American dying for Arabs.

One thing we know for sure, Obama will do what he wants and will ignore any weigh in from Congress.

God help us.

“...there are no moderate muslims...”

Agreed. “moderate muslim” as like saying:

1.) gay heterosexual,
2.) moral pedophile,
3.) rational liberal,
4.) Bill Maher is intelligent, funny, entertaining, his ideas have merit and his show is worth watching.

Just like the term “moderate muslim”, these are all oxymorons and don’t exist in the real world.

(P.S.: Bill Maher is a psychopathic liar, closet bi-sexual, and idiotic mysognist that should be tarred, feathered and ridden out of town on a rail.)

Obama would only strike Iran if it helps him politically.

Perhaps, next October.

Right. They want US to do it because they do not want the heat.

You are entirely too kind to Bill Maher! He should be confined in a cell and forced to watch “The Ed Show” 24/7/365.

Don’t want the Perisians to get to uppity now do we.

Honestly, let the EU and the Saudi’s fight their own wars for once. No more blood for islam.

Agreed 110%. I'm tired of the U.S. expending its blood and treasure protecting countries that could do the job themselves.

The Persians scare the bejeebers outta the Ay-rabbs. If we had a Talleyrand or Richelieu, or even a Kissinger, running the state department, we could exploit the tensions to our benefit. Instead we have a halfwit woman’s college affirmative action hire.

Has everyone here forgotten that iran would like to nuke us or give the nuke to terrorists? I don’t care why obama attacks iran, as long as her does it.

Couldn’t necessarily disagree, but......in light of the recent decision to station 2500 Marines in Australia, I really have to wonder. Its looking more and more like regardless of who is in the White House, foriegn policy unfolds per a predetermined script. I can’t figure out who writes the script.........but it keeps unfolding with unswerving regularity. Really strange.

There is another link on Israelnationalnews.com, same webpage, to another article entitled Saudi Prince Warns Israel Not to Attack Iran -- can the Saudis make up their mind!
