Tel Aviv, March 6 (IANS) An Israeli cabinet minister Tuesday called on placing Iran under an air and sea blockade if it does not stop its presumed drive for nuclear arms.

We all know obama was lying when he said he has Israels back. He is going to ignore this. BiBi is going to do what he must to protect Israel no matter what the liar-n-coward does.
obama fiddles while the world burns.
“The time has come for the United States to place a clear ultimatum and deadline before Iran...”
Oh, dear; where has Steinitz been for the past three years - Mars?
Obama’s approach to foreign policy is to hide his head in the sand and hope it’ll all go away.
Calculated escalation tactics. “You say you have our back, Mr. President? Prove it!”.
This is going to quickly disprove it and then the bombers will get their green light.
I’m not sure I’d recommend a blockade. That would just about force Israel not to attack and solve the problem. USA and the _world_ have clearly been shown inept and co-conspirial in enabling evil regimes free reign.
