US disowns Israel over Iran strike: No weapons or military backup
DEBKA ^ | Sept 1, 2012 | Staff

Posted on 09/01/2012 10:33:37 AM PDT by bkopto

US Gen. Martin Dempsey’s assertion Thursday, Aug. 30 that the US would not be “complicit” in an Israel strike against Iran, together with the drastic reduction in the scale of next month’s joint US-Israeli war game disclosed by TIME, add up to a blunt message from US President Barack Obama to Israel: You are on your own!

See how you manage without special US weapons and US military backup, including a shield against missile counter-attack, if you decide to defy us and go through with a military operation against Iran.

Instead of the 5,000 US troops originally assigned for Austere Challenge 12, the annual joint exercise, the Pentagon will send only 1,200 to 1,500 service members.

The missile interception systems at the core of the joint exercise will be reduced in number and potency: Patriot anti-missiles will come without crews and maybe one instead of two Aegis Ballistic Missile Defense warships, according to the magazine.

DEBKAfile’s military sources: The Obama administration has put Israel on harsh notice that an attack on Iran to disrupt or delay its nuclear armament will be refused US missile backup - both in the course of the operation and to cover Israel’s back in the event of a counter-strike widening into a general Middle East conflict.

The Netanyahu government will bear full and exclusive responsibility for the consequences of attacking Iran.

Obama, who has repeatedly pledged his commitment to Israeli security, is the first American president to cut Israeli adrift against a major threat to its security explicitly posed by Iran.

If Israel wants US military assistance, maybe she should consider an attack on the UK. Or Tampa.

Um, maybe we should be listening to what the Israelis are telling us, seeing as how they have to live next door to these scumbags. If they’re alarmed, maybe we should be alarmed too. Nothing good will come from this if the Israelis have to go it alone.

Or maybe one of those uppity southern states, whose residents still believe in old-fashioned things like God, chivalry and guns.

I think this could change.

If Obama finds himself still in the poll-hole after the DNC, a little Mid-East “wag the dog” might be the just the distraction he needs to pull the attention from R squared.

Ignoring Iran's attacks against the US in 1983 led to
the Iran attack in 1993 against the WTC.
Ignoring THAT probably encouraged the 911 Atrocities.

SSDD?

The stench of dis information is overpowering at the best of times..... but to make matters worse, we have a muslim turd in our white house whose goal is against western man.

I can assure you whatever happens to Israel will happen to us.

They are our canary in the coal mine.

Worst part? Obama has been using American resources to build a north African caliphate... which is EVERYTHING contrary to the history, premise and philosophy of the US of A.

Dempsey did not get his appointment had it not been for his adherence to the Obama line.

He is the latest example of generals picked for their political compliance, like those of the Carter and Clinton eras.

The cowardly stance has always been Obama’s stock in trade.

And he knows his constituency.

The Jewish vote is his, anyway, since America’s Jews have abandoned Israel already; meanwhile, if the Israelis strike and win, he’ll have done nothing at all and will still have eliminated the nuclear threat (in the same way HE killed bin Laden); if the Israelis strike and lose, he can blame them for “bringing it onto themselves” and appease all the Moslems to whom he bows and scrapes.

There’s nothing in a strong stance for Obama - his voters don’t give a rat’s *ss about Isreal - they only care about their welfare programs and their free bucks.

Security for the US from Iranian nukes; the notion that, after Israel, we might be next? Hahahahahaha He couldn’t care less.

US disowns Israel over Iran strike: No weapons or military backup

Or, more accurately:

Muslim enabler, Barack Obama, disowns Israel over Iran strike: No weapons or military backup

Why would you publicly announce you are not backing an ally whose right to exist has been openly threatened by a sworn enemy? The only purpose I can see would be to embolden afore mentioned sworn enemy and to communicate you are no longer an ally with Israel.

If Obama was prosecuted for treason, would he himself be jailed in gitmo?

a blunt message from US President Barack Obama to Israel: You are on your own!

Wrong Mr. Obozo, Israel is not quite on her own.

The Messiah can waffle and deny all he wants, but “WE” own the airspace over there and the Israeli’s have to fly through that airspace to/from the attack. . .which means they will be given IFF codes and clearance to transit so our fighters don’t shoot them down.

Now, The Messiah might leak the attack when it is in progress to make the attack more difficult and perhaps a failure. . .thereby allowing him to say, “See, I told you to wait. . . “

Why do you call Obama a "muslim enabler"? He has admitted to "my (Obama's) muslim faith" on a major US television network. He attended a "Christian church" for 20 years where the pastor admitted that "it would be a great place for a muslim to hide". He attended a madrassa as a boy. His putative biological father and step father were muslims.

He bowed to the Saudi king. He thinks the muslim call to prayer is "the prettiest sound in the world". He counts Calypso Louie Farakand as a friend. He has apologized to the muslim nations for past American "transgressions".

I could go on for several more paragraphs but it would be much more of the same. If it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck, its a f**king duck. WAKE UP AMERICA.

Yes, of course. I was just ranting/venting.
