Skip to comments.Obama's True Agenda For the Middle East Revealed
Posted on 09/03/2012 4:35:17 PM PDT by Nachum
The Obama administration is taking steps it hopes will force Iran to reconsider almost stalemated nuclear negotiations - and forestall an Israeli attack on Iran's nuclear facilities.
So begins the lead article in the Labor Day edition of the New York Times, and part of that article is a repeat of the litany we've all become used to in the White House attempts to explain just how President Obama "has Israel's back" in the face of an Iran rapidly developing the capability to create nuclear weaponry and repeatedly stating it's deep desire to "wipe Israel off the face of the Earth."
Diplomacy will do the trick, we were told at first. When we caught on to the futility of that approach, it was "sanctions" that were heralded as the way to go; and when the initial sanctions failed utterly to stop the mullahs, we and the Israelis were told that even stricter ones would be applied and finally do the job. They have failed as well, but not to worry; maybe Iran is only pursuing peaceful uses of nuclear energy after all; and, well, the US will run a bunch of naval exercises in the Persian Gulf, and that'll scare those loonies into behaving.
Don't forget, too, that Israel doesn't have the military capacity to destroy Iran's nuclear development facilities, as it once did with those of Iraq and Syria, so the best a unilateral strike could hope for would be a delay of Iran's progress by, at most, a few years.
The United States, it's true, does have new-type bunker buster bombs which could get at the Iranians' buried labs and enrichment installations, plus the capability to deliver them; but Obama won't, and Israel can't have any to use themselves.

The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
somebody needs to be dragged from office, tarred, feathered and then tried for treason @ GITMO!
Israel does have the weaponry. Today, you can count them among the nuclear “big six”, and in reality probably heavier than Britain, China and France.
Certainly enough to turn Iran into a cinder, enough to wipe out the Arabs, and enough to deal with Eurabians and Amerabians.
Would be very uncomfortable for a while, though.
If obastard is re-elected, I fully expect him to try to use miltary force in the Middle East. Against Israel.
Love it Nachum. Good analogy. That there Prince was a brilliant thinker!
He can TRY to use military force against Israel; but there is Someone bigger than he is that will have a say over that. Obama has taken us down the road to hell paved with his good intentions.
I can think of about 50 somebodies right off of the top of my head!
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
...Obama and his ilk. Obamnots/willnots.
