Israel to Give Obama 12 Hours Notice on Attacking Iran
israelnationalnews ^ | 1/22/2012 | Tzvi Ben Gedalyahu

Posted on 01/22/2012 4:43:53 AM PST by Bobalu

Israeli officials told visiting USS Chief Joint of Staffs Martin Dempsey that it would give President Barack Obama no more than 12 hours notice if and when it attacks Iran, The London Times reported Sunday.

The Netanyahu government also will not coordinate with the United States an attack on the Islamic Republic, according to the report, the latest in a number of suposed scenarios concerning cooperation or lack of it between Jerusalem and Washington.

IMO Israel should give the warning and then just wait to see if Zero alerts the Iranians. Then they will know that when the time really comes to keep Zero in the dark.

That should give the Duffer-in-Chief time enough to hit the greens before the zhit hits the fan.

If Netanyahu was prudent and I think he is, he would give 0bama 0 seconds notice.

When the information is transferred to Obama,
the Moslem Brotherhood and his 57 States will
receive it BEFORE the US Pentagon,
.... so a 12 nanosecond notice
would be more appropriate.

Yea, that way ears can go play golf, get in some hoops and use his cellphone to call Iran and give them fair warning. I wouldn’t doubt he’d also divulge the flight path if he could for an extra heads up.

Too much time for Bammy to alert Iranian air defenses.

Israel should give 1.2 minutes notice instead, JMHO.

Netanyahu might decide to give that 12 hours notice by regular USPS mail delivery. "Oy, Barack? I told my mail clerk to send that OVERNIGHT delivery, what can I say? You just can't get good help these days, you know? (of course the American people learned that back on Jan 20, 2009, heh! heh!)"

no more than 12 hours notice

Headline is wrong.

"No more than 12" does not equal "will give 12".

If they are smart (I mean, you know, c'mon!) they will give him a call before the satellites see the flashes - about six seconds before.

When they finally attack the iran-morons, Israel should call nobama at 3 am...just to see if he answers the phone.

If they scheduled the attack for 7:00 am local time, that would be 3:00 pm Eastern time. Giving Obama the warning 12 hours beforehand would give him the 3:00 am phone call he’s been talking about for the last few years.

I might give him 12 seconds warning, but that's about as much as I would be willing to give him; because as sure as the sun rises in the east, Obama would alert Iran to the imminent attack.

I wouldn’t give him 12 minutes. Why should he? Obama is just going to give a forewarning to his Muslim friends.

And I am serious!

right you are. Izzies tell Bammy that bombing commences soon then wait and see if Iranians start scurrying to their air defenses. For sure Bammy would leak this to the Russians and hope the Russians would hit Israel preemptively. BammyBoy the crypto-Muslim could play his role in the Gog and Magog scenario

There is still the issue of the time between telling 0’ how much notice there would be, to the time actually doing so and carrying it out.

I would like and hope Netenyahu would make those two conveyances at the SAME TIME, in the SAME MESSAGE.

[otoh, i recognize Israel is stating AT MOST 12 hours, meaning 1/4 second would do just as well, if not much better]

I focused on the “up to 12 hours”. What that should have told Zero’s administration is that at best they will get the 12 hour notice. In other words, they were diplomatically told they were not on the early warning list. Zero is “up to”. Kick his Kenyan arsche BiBi!

———I told my mail clerk-——

Consider the Japanese notification of the pearl harbor attack. The message was sent to the Japanese embassy encoded and as I recall in 13 parts. The decoding and typing the lengthy message took about an hour longer that was available and the message was delivered after the fact. The attack thus became a sneak attack.

Some version of that could be used to justify late notification to the Messiah who can not be trusted

I’d say twelve minutes is the most warning that would be safe. It should be “How are the wife? The kids? Tell me about your fifteen rounds of golf last week. The order to strike Iran has already been given and the attack cannot be pulled back. Everything in Iran will light up in twelve minutes. Oops, make that twelve seconds because I was slow in getting to the point.”

That should give Obama sufficient time to order American strikes on any Israeli jets in Iraqi/Iranian air space (sarc).

You’re right. In essence, he’s saying we’ll give you any where from zero to 2 hours notice...

Hahahahahahaaa..

I agree also, that Israel should send a trial message to see if Obama in turn alerts the Iranians.

Exactly!

Then, when Iran's defense systems all light up and come on line, Israel (and the rest of the world) will know that 0bama has betrayed them and is a Muslim sympathizer (some of us already know)

If such a warning is given to Obama it will be on the front page New York Times and announced on MSNBC almost immediately.

If I were Bibi, I'd send the notice out 12 hours ahead of the attack via normal mail.

They won’t attack. They could have for years and have done nothing. The Israel of today is NOT the attack dog of yesterday, but more of a paper tiger.

I wish I was wrong, but they haven’t done anything to prove me wrong.

What time is it in Iran and Israel when it is 3 AM in DC?

That’s when they should call and maybe accidentally get one digit in the number wrong.

Or place the call to a golf course?

Look I’m going to say something unpopular here, but I’ll say it anyway.

With billions in aide, equipment, joint exercises, and joint testing that has occurred over many decades...regardless of how inept the president is...

I think our military has the right to know about potential WWIII earlier than 12 hours.
