Skip to comments.US Nervous, Sends Army General to Calm Down Israel
Posted on 01/15/2012 12:29:40 AM PST by Eleutheria5
The Obama administration is sending the head of the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff Martin Dempsey to Israel this Thursday to try to change what it sees as Israels increasing readiness to attack Iran.
Both Israel and the United States have stated they would not rule out a military strike on Tehran to prevent the Islamic Republic from reaching the capability of attacking Israel, or elsewhere, with a nuclear weapon. However, American officials are worried that Israel is closer to concluding that the point of no return is at hand, after which it may be too late to stop Iran.
With 15,000 soldiers, diplomats and contractors in Iraq, Irans neighbor, Washington is worried that an Israeli strike would place them in danger, The Wall Street Journal reported. Israel is concerned that Iranian nuclear capability would give it leverage to achieve its dream of dominating the Muslim world and wiping Israel off the map in the words of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
Dempsey will meet his counterpart in Israel, IDF Chief of Staff Benny Gantz, as well as Defense Minister Ehud Barak and possibly Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu. President Barack Obama telephoned the Prime Minister last Thursday and expressed his unshakeable commitment to Israels security, but the White House declined to describe the content of the conversation.

In other words, they won't rule out attacking Iran, they just don't want Israel being ready to do it.
So, are you calmed?

Iran’s about to get plastered. And so is NORK. Can’t have “peace” without these things occuring.

This is called leverage. Allows America to follow up on Israel’s attack to defend our troops. Allows America an out, Israel, not so much.
If Israel attacks Iran, obummer will not have a war to get his sorry ass re-elected. That is what this all about, obummer trying to get his October general hat on . Wag the dog.
Iran. The perfect patsy, right out of central casting.
Ubama's campaign strategy for the election eleven months from now is to send America into a fresh new war. See, Americans are very reluctant to dump a somber and serious "war time President", don't you know...
I’m already sorry.
Yeah, that'll work.
I owe a month’s rent and will soon owe two. My mother-in-law is coming to live with us. It’s freezing at night, and we have just one space heater. Who’s not calm? Maybe we were trying to light a fire under the US by acting ornery?
I hope things look up for you. And in case it isn’t obvious, I support Israel in any action she wants to take against Iran.

This is the 3AM phone call and Obama is asleep at the switch.
I'm with you.
obama needs to get his ass on the golf course and let the adults take care of business.
I’m sure that whatever they do, the government here would not knowingly endanger American servicemen and women.
“Watch this swing.” Heh. Bet the fat retard from Flint will say nary a peep about US involvement in Iran.
Oh to be a fly on the wall after Bibi took that call.
And you can take that to the bank, but considering that Dear Leader is a serial prevaricator and had broken just about every promise and pledge he's ever made....just don't try and cash that "check!"
The whole dam ting reminds me of my so called adult children,last night.IT’s all GAY DRAMA. One child wants something the others have. And the GAY Games begin.Those who have insist they will not allow those who don’t have with
certain harm to keep the don’t have from getting -because Nobody thinks it sane to allow the child that don’t have from getting what they want—because the child has made threats to use what they don’t have to destroy EVERYBODY else.And the track record of the child without capability for mass destruction is they have a long record of destruction in the name of their god. IT would not be wise to allow them their desire. And therefore it is unwise for the US to send a Military man to play diplomat/soldier/Spy to “calm Israel down”
You can’t shake, and you can’t break what ain’t there.
Should send some B52’s to help out.
“......the only reason we are pulling out of Iraq is to attack Iran:......
Why would we think about pulling troops out of IRAQ when they are on the door step to Iran? Would save a lot of time getting into position for an attack, would it not?
A Ron Paul administration would not be trying to talk Israel out of anything.
They are scared to death.
Everyone calm down. The black messiah and Hillary are going to take care of Israel and install peace with all the Muslims. Don’t worry about Iran. Just do what Barry tells you to do and all will be glorious.
And remember! The Muslim Brotherhood is a moderate Muslim group that partners with the black messiah to bring peace for the Joooooz! Be glad they are taking over Egypt! /s/
Go look at a map and see that it is only 96 miles from Kuwait City to Bandar Shapur (aka Bandar Khomeni)
Troops can drive there in two hours or so to support the Marines helicoptered in from the sea. They need go no further. capture and kill that city and Iran will wither
I suspect other topics besides “don’t do it” were discussed
But for whom....?
I know. G-d be with you.
if by “them” you mean Israel and Iran. It might not be a bad idea. IMO if Israel is stupid enough to listen to our diplomatic /politicized Generals—instead of their own intel
then I would call Israel stupider. IF our politicized Military believes American appeasement of the Muslim Street can work —Yeah like it really worked in Iraq/Afghanistan/ Pakistan or them places where we were deployed as IFOR? Then our Generals are stupider. If-on the outside chance our General and his staff were sent for some other purpose but the national media deliberately misled— I would salute and shout DRIVE ON!

Israel will do what it has to do to save themselves - they aren’t going to listen to Hussein, the Muslin US President.
