US denies drill with Israel pared down due to lack of trust (Missile Defense)
Jerusalem Post ^ | 8/31/2012 | Unattributed

Posted on 08/31/2012 7:53:52 PM PDT by mojito

A US-Israeli ballistic missile exercise postponed until this autumn will involve fewer US military personnel than initially planned, the Pentagon said on Friday, but it rejected a media report portraying the decision as a sign of US mistrust.

The exercise is being planned amid rising war talk in the Israeli media and reports that Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Ehud Barak are debating a unilateral attack on Iran to knock out its nuclear installations. Washington has cautioned Israel against going it alone.


Time magazine reported on Friday that initially about 5,000 US troops were planned to be involved in Austere Challenge-12 but that the number was being pared back to between 1,500 and 1,200. It quoted an unnamed Israeli military official as saying the change was a sign of US mistrust....

A US official, speaking on condition of anonymity, declined to say how many US personnel would be involved in the exercise but said the reported figures were wrong and the change in scale was far smaller than indicated.

This is so obviously designed to make sure that Israel can’t defend itself as well as it might otherwise have done. It’s the ugliest example I can recall of blackmailing an ally.

blackmailing a ally? With that muslim turd in the White Hut, its not blackmail. It is unabashed, unmasked hatred in practice.

All of our WW2 allies put Israel there and those are the ones that Obama is seeking to unthread. Western man did it and Obama is at war with western man.

How else would you summarize his arab spring and support of the MB..... in the construction of the north African caliphate?....... and all at America’s expense?

This means that the US troops are going to be deployed, and it won’t be a neighborhood watch, either. Thanks mojito.

Another "subtle" message from Obama...

Dempsey: I Don't Want to be Complicit in Israeli Strike

U.S. to Israel: If You Attack, We Don’t Have Your Back

Israel, U.S. View Iranian Threat Differently, Says Top U.S. Gen. Dempsey says Israel and the U.S.

Well.. I’ve been cleaning up legacy video, as I mentioned elsewhere. One thing is a collage, from the Victorious Sect and AQ on nuclear terrorism.

These bastards WMD experiments at Tora Bora were extremely extensive and advanced (of course, no one wants to talk about that now), and it is the muslims plan to use whatever they can get their hands on against Israel and against the US. Of course, one US city blown would enable Obama to clamp down and postpone elections for years.

All of this is pretty logical.
For some reason US has abandoned Israel as a premium ally in ME for Al-Qaeda.
Killing Osama bin Laden was an essential part of a job and a psy-op to convince American public there is no more Al-Qaeda as it is known. And it is sad most people bought it while Osama was nothing more but a talking head there and all the system left intact.
And it is allied with Obama’s regime backing Al-Qaeda takeover of all the Middle East and Northern Africa including direct military support in overthrowing any moderate power proved to be able to keep snakes in a pit.
There is simply no place for Israel in this game.
The aim as I can see it is a huge Islamist superstate in form of confederation of former secular independent nations once plagued by Arab spring. Taking over more advanced nations like Syria and Pakistan will be instrumental for them to become a superpower with nukes and delivery systems.
And this monster full of dirt poor sand people will eat it’s original inspirators in Saudi Arabia and UAE as well to “divide” their economic power.
If one think all the Hillary’s support for these maniacs can make them any friendly to US he is a complete moron.

AmeriKKKa (under the undocumented Marxist/Communist/Kenyan)
has suicidally sided with al Qaeda (which attacked America)
against its own allies.

All of Zero's policies in the Middle East make perfect sense if Zero wants to ally the US to the Muslim Brotherhood at the expense of both Israel and al Qaida.

All of it adds up: killing bin Laden, the Arab Spring campaign against Mubarak, the intervention in Libya, the drone strikes in Pakistan, leaving Israel out to dry, the bubby bubbying up to the Islamists in Turkey.

Will the American people connect the dots before its too late? Will anyone on the Romney campaign dare point this out?

Do not contrast MB and AQ. AQ is simply a Ministry of War and intelligence service for MB. It was like that since the very beginning.
