U.S. has no right to block Israel on Iran: Netanyahu
Reuters ^ | 9/11/2012 | Jeffrey Heller

Posted on 09/11/2012 9:12:17 AM PDT by mojito

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Tuesday said the United States had forfeited its moral right to stop Israel taking action against Iran's nuclear program because it had refused to be firm with Tehran itself.

In comments which appeared to bring the possibility of an Israeli attack on Iran closer, Netanyahu took the Obama administration to task after Washington rebuffed his own call to set a red line for Tehran's nuclear drive.

"The world tells Israel 'wait, there's still time'. And I say, 'Wait for what? Wait until when?'" said Netanyahu, speaking in English.

Wait until it's convenient for Barry the crypto-Muslim.

Which means a very very long time.

Does anyone have any doubt anymore that Barry wants to give Iran time to produce a weapon? That he thinks a nuclear Iran is a good idea because it will strike a blow against the "Zionist entity" which he despises?

The only thing better to drive the point would have been to speak "Wait for what? Wait until when?" in Kenyan.

I’m calling BS, Hillary is no doubt hoping that Bibi fires off some attack, first it cripples the Obama re-election campaign and secondly she and others like her in the D coalition will have something to hold over their jewish cohorts. Hillary wants war.

I really hope Israel does wait until AFTER our election to pull the trigger. First, because they’d not get 100% commitment from our Muslim president and secondly, I’d hate to see 0bama get a ‘wartime president’ bounce.. A war should hurt 0bama’s reputation but the media will spin it to make him look like Winston Churchill.

Israel would like to wait until late January unless they are convinced that Iran is about the cross that red line.

This implies we are doing something to physically stop Israel from taking action. Is this really true? Or is "stopping them" effectively refusing to aid them?

There is a difference, particularly because of the Russian warning that an attack on Iran would bring "unimaginable" consequences.

“Ben, Wait until after the elections. Then we can work together to write a “stronly worded letter”. After that, we can get together and talk about potentially considering a deadline for considering some alternate, more potentially meaningful, course of diplomatic action that includes a vague nuanced implication of potential military action.”

-Barack Obama.

Israel should just go ahead and let us know how it comes out. I don’t want any American involvement if they choose to attack 78 million people in a sovereign country. I will tell you this. WE ARE BROKE!! I say if Iran ever fires a nuke at our border ,when Russia didn’t do so, I would be very surprised. But remember this about the “doctrine of preemption” ,which is a gross violation of international law, tt works against Israel too. With all the breast beating, they just might get preempted first.

What a load of crap. This isn't your average “sovereign country”. This is a country that has the destruction of Israel as their stated goal. And “international law” is BS too. There's no such thing. Nations do (and should) act in their own best interest. Better for Iran to get leveled than Israel.

Then don’t let it. If Israel needs to protect itself why would you care what the US does?

I tend to agree Mary, if Iran represents a true existential threat to Israel then Bibi should just quit whining and shut his trap and rev up the jets and the Nukes! We’ve already been drug into too many Mid-East interventions!

The Zero administration has on several occasions leaked sensitive military information to the press, and hence to the Iranians, regarding Israeli military deployments.

The most infamous example, from a few months ago, was the disclosure that Israeli aircraft were secretly deployed in Azerbaijan.

(Article) Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Tuesday said the United States had forfeited its moral right to stop Israel taking action

Well, the U.S. does get a say, Bibi's discomfiture on the point n/w/s, since without sustained U.S. support, some of it unwilling (the AJC blackmailed Harry Truman into recognizing David Ben-Gurion's government in 1948), the Jews of Israel would have been reduced to lampshades in Mecca a long time ago.

That's the basics.

Does anyone have any doubt anymore that Barry wants to give Iran time to produce a weapon? That he thinks a nuclear Iran is a good idea because it will strike a blow against the "Zionist entity" which he despises?

No, I don't have any doubt about that; and in fact, I think Barry is setting us up -- on purpose -- to get nuked by somebody, by eliminating so much of our nuclear arsenal and ruining our finances, that we'll drop from being the "hyperpower" (thus the cheese-eating surrender-monkeys) of the planet to a second-rate power in a world reorganized by the mullahs, Putin, the Chicoms, and bit players like Hugo Chavez.

Who, by the way, is allowing some sort of rocket base to be built in northern Venezuela, I keep reading. He wants to play "Cuban Missile Crisis Round II" with us, no doubt using someone else's nuclear IRBM's.

I would be very surprised.

Were you "very surprised" 11 years ago?

The difference between Israel and Iran is that Israel will attack missile sites and nuclear facilities. Tehran will nuke Tel Aviv and Jerusalem.

I recall a public statement by the Israeli Ambassador to the United States, broadcast by Fox News and possibly others, ...

... giving the current administration 30 days to respond in the affirmative with regard to a potential attack on Iran.

The implication was that Israel would ‘go it alone’ if that affirmative response was not given.

I can not recall on exactly what date that interview was broadcast ...

... but if you are looking for it, I would start by finding the ‘New Moon’ this month (later this week, I think), and count backwards 30 days +- one or two.

For those actually looking for it, even on Fox, it was a 1-day news cycle item. IF the current administration answered the Ambassador, either way, I am not aware of it.

In another month everyone will be screaming about how there was no warning.

The 15th is what everyone with a calendar says.

I say the 12th for the primary attack, with the same calendar conditions allowing followups for 5 full days.

The Israelis would do America a great favor if it waited until after our elections to deal with Iran.

Obama needs to energize his base. He found out during the Democratic convention and its aftermath how to do that. Seldom have the Democrats been more energized than when they were booing God and Jerusalem. And the majority of Americans apparently agrees with them since the post-convention bounce put Obama’s approval rating above 50 percent.

An attack by Israel on Iran would re-energize this majority to go to the polls for Obama. Why would the Israelis want to help Obama win re-election?

If Obama wants to energize his anti-God and -Jerusalem base, the Israelis should make Obama do it himself. History gives him many precedents; for example, since many Jews themselves are anti-God and -Israel, a Yom Kippur eve rally in Times Square along the lines of the Nuremburg rallies would likely attract multitudes of passionate Obama supporters.

Azerbaijan is an Islamic country. Do you, in all honesty, truly believe that nobody in Azerbaijan notified the Iranians of Israel's military assets there? Really?

I think that because of the distances involved, Israel has to presume that Iran is well aware of gross movements of equipment and personnel. The only things they really cannot know is the time and the plan of attack.

I can almost guarantee you that Israel is saving one of their last nukes for Moscow, with ground zero there being where-ever Putin is that day.
