Skip to comments.Obama Admin Tells Iran: We Won’t Join An Israeli Attack On Your Nuke Sites…

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.
According to the New York Times, senior U.S. officials have argued that Israel is “trying to corner” Obama into a military commitment that he does not yet need to make.
Unless, of course, Obama’s poll numbers continue to shrink in which case, an invasion of Iran will become the October surprise.
“senior U.S. officials have argued that Israel is trying to corner Obama into a military commitment that he does not yet need to make.”
Of course, Iran need only looked at the frequency with which Illinois state senator Barack Obama voted “present” to know he’d never have the cojones to back Israel in this strike. Most “actions” BHO takes—e.g., completely ignoring the recommendations of his own deficit commission—are in fact part of a lifelong pattern of avoiding hard decisions.
“I will side with.....
I hate this man. In a way I did not think was possible. Even Jimmah, as bed as he was, never made me feel ashamed. A Nice October surprise would be to see him quit.
There is no way Obama will risk his reelection with a war in the Persian Gulf. Our big blue water ships are incredibly vulnerable in the narrow confines of the Persian Gulf. If Israel were to attack (still doubtful) and Iran were to attack those ships with shore to ship missiles, Obama will be held accountable as CIC. The Obama administration will do anything necessary to prevent an attack.
Who tells a mutual enemey that if your ally attacks, you will side with them.
The U.S. is more vulnerable to a potential Iranian nuclear attack than Israel. That’s why George Bush warned repeatedly about the dire need to eliminate Iran’s bombmaking potential and often vowed to do so, although of course he never did.
The Ayatollahs of Iran are either crazy Muslim fanatics or reasonable individuals. If they’re crazy Muslim fanatics, the last place they’d drop a nuclear bomb is on Israel, since Jerusalem is a holy city to Muslims, and nothing would provoke the wrath of Allah, the Twelfth Imam, etc., than a nuclear mess where the sacred Dome of Rock used to be.
If, on the other hand, the Ayatollahs are rational human beings, the last place they’d also drop a nuclear bomb is on Israel, which of all nations is probably the most certain to retaliate by incineratoring Teheran.
Which leaves America, frightened Obama-ruled America. With a usable nuclear bomb finally mounted on a rocket, why would the Ayatollahs hesitate to blackmail Washington with a threat to bomb a U.S. city if it doesn’t get what it wants, for example, the complete retreat of all American ships and installations out of the Persian Gulf.
Whatever Israel chooses to do about Iran, Israel will be all right. But if the Ayatollahs go nuclear, America won’t be.
IMO At this point its far too late to make a hard hit against Iran. It is indeed difficult to allow Iran nukes as they vow to wipe Israel off the face of the earth but a preemptive strike is not the answer.
I stand with a steadfast, iron clad promise that an attack on Israel is an attack against the USA and we will retaliate with the full force of our military in all aspects. No BS, no second guessing. A firm line in the sand, period.
We must put our trust in the Lord for He promises Israels defense. America must stand with Israel.
But we’re the most supportive administration of Israel ever.
This is how Obama gets us all on $8/gallon gas.
If they actually do use one we have to turn all its major cities into glass. They say they don’t care, they will care when it actually happens. They are always big talkers until they know they are the ones about to get hurt.
Who the Hell tells their enemy this?
We are supposed to keep them guessing!!!
Last time we pulled a move like this, Saddam Hussein had his tanks rolling into Kuwait within a month.
Bad, bad news. I’m sunk.
An Iranian surprise attack (perhaps a nuclear attack) on Israel will occur simultaneously with an attack on American military assets in the Middle East. They have to do that to protect themselves and assure Iranian supremacy and domination of the Arab/Islamic world which they have always desired. America & Israel are in the way. As for the European powers, they will cower in fear and try to hide behind “diplomacy”.
If it was ever in question, this clarifies the matter.
The mulatto moron from Mombasa is a mortal enemy of the State of Israel.
Weasel Zippers? LGBT??
Me, too. I can honestly say I never really hated anyone until he came along, but now I do. I used to be ashamed of it before God, but with this, and with the other thread which describes how John 3:16 is being used at the convention to describe HIM, I'm wondering if God really holds it against me. After all, we're supposed to hate evil.
Hopefully the ROEs for our military are more flexible than "you can take action after calling the State Department and waiting your turn".
On to of this, Obama is finalizing a deal that will forgive Egypt of a billion owed to us..... Unbelievable.
Please God have mercy on this country for the mistake it made!! Lord, may your wrath be upon the small group of enemies within this country that have hijacked it.
