You can be sure that Harper’s government is not only watching everything that happens regarding Iran in the Middle East, they very likely have Iranian groups inside Canada under surveillance because as a solid ally of Israel, Canada would be a prime target for those little Persian pricks when Netanyahu pulls the trigger on Iran.
As for the timing of the Israeli strike, Netanyahu will determine that primarily based on the odds of success, with political considerations so far as the U.S. election lower on the list of priorities. Bibi is a realist, he recognizes that 0bama and his lying goons are not to be trusted and I think it is a safe bet that he holds those bastards in utter contempt.
Bibi is in good company, SO DO WE!
Just as in the 1967 war, the US government may be against them but the people are with them. It SUCKS because it led to the tragedy of the USS Liberty, but people have to remember, US policy was anti-Israel, and they probably WERE spying for the Gyps or the House of Saud. Probably not the Saudis, because as Wahabbists they HATED us then, and they hate us now. Our relationship is purely pecuniary.
