Posted on 09/03/2012 12:36:55 AM PDT by Eleutheria5
Senior officials in the Obama Administration sent a message to Tehran in the past few days, according to which the U.S. does not intend to join Israel's side if it decides to attack the Iranian nuclear installations on its own, reports Israel's second-largest paper, Yediot Aharonot.
According to the report, the U.S. sent the message to Iran in order to avoid an Iranian response military response that would target U.S. installations in the Gulf region.
The message was reportedly conveyed to Iran through two European countries that serve as a conduit of communication between Iran and the U.S. in times of crisis.
Nationalist newspaper Makor Rishon has accused Yediot Aharonot of working with the Obama Administration against the Netanyahu government's planned strike on Iran.

The US has never taken part in any of the several wars Israel has had to fight for its existence, other than to supply and provide diplomatic support. And they have at times pressured Israel into halting military action, as in 1956. So in a sense this is true.
And the world owes a large debt of gratitude to the Israelis for taking out Iraq’s nuclear reactors years ago. We are so stupid (are leaders and the liberals who follow them) as to think that God will not have His say in the matter. We deny Israel at our own peril
Stay safe Eleutheria.
Keep that gas mask close at hand.

No sense giving the Atomic Hitler the green light to go ahead and kill as many Jews as possible.
The USA has a president who has a Muslim father and Muslim step father and attended madrassa. Sec of States lead advisor is ranking Islamic Brotherhood advisor.
Israel you are on your own. Godspeed and success, the Lord is with you.
In this election year, Zer0 has chosen not to wag the dog. That is the best decision he has made. It has insured an angry electorate who will elect Romney in a landslide.
And Valerie Jarrett is Iranian. Kind of a no brainer.
Still haven’t got one.
We don’t die. Even when dead, we still eventually get up. Still, no sense testing that excessively. Obama’s a shmuck. So are his senior aides. News flash.
Perhaps Obama is preparing for some kind of armed action on the home front and does not want to dilute his attention...
Besides, he will not risk being seen as a friend to Israel in her hour of need. The other Muslim countries around the world will shriek at the “Joooooosssss!!!!” like a bunch of stuck pigs, but secretly, they will be pleased that the Iranian Shiites got a spanking.
Israel should be prepared to use nukes from day two if it gets ugly.
Us Yellowbeards are never more dangerous than when we're dead.
Pop quiz for Ozero voters, and especially Choom Gang voters- find Iraq on a map. Dead voters are excluded because they probably had a better education.
I was thinking along the same lines earlier.
You definitely got a point there, imo.
But, I think, it is more than “target U.S. installations in the Gulf region”.
Historically, since WWII, and in the last 35 yrs or so, it is *appears* more the case of the U.S. not wanting to actually demonstrate visible backing of Israel in military action.
IOW, perhaps, it is the U.S. general foreign policy to play the diplomacy, neutral card in that region, when it comes to any military action taken by Israel, in that region.
HOWEVER, both the Arab countries & Iranian Mullah regime do clearly recognize and/or perceive the U.S. as being very much a backer of Israel. For them it is reality, particularly for a good majority of Arab population, in different Arab countries.
So, ultimately, in their perception, it really doesn’t matter if the U.S. actually is a willing & demonstrable participant in any military action taken by Israel. IOW, by association, THEY will view the U.S. as a participant & on the side of Israel.
Hi Eleutheria5, long time no chat!
If/when Israel does take action, my humble advice is as was before: make sure you get them thoroughly - the Mullahs’ regime, unlike Syria & Iraq, when Israel did take action against their nuke facilities, will Not give up easily, & has got its tentacles far & wide. If left half alive, it will counteract.
Even if the US does somehow manage to stay out of a conflict, and doesn’t get a direct lick from the Mullahs, I’d advise people to buy bicycles, as well as diesel engine cars with an attachment for burning vegetable oil and such. Crude will go through the roof and keep soaring.
lol.. riding a bicycle is good advice ;) - never mind the price of Crude!
(imho) the countries named would be Israel and the United States, as having done it, yet there are other countries not wanting a nuclear iran. Two or three other countries come to mind.
