US Official: Nuclear Bomb Is Our Red Line
YNet ^ | 14 Sept 2012 | YNet

Posted on 09/14/2012 5:19:26 PM PDT by edpc

US President Barack Obama rejected an appeal by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to define a specific “red line” that Iran could not cross in its nuclear program, The New York Times reported Friday, citing an unnamed senior administration official.

According to the report, in an hour-long conversation on Tuesday Obama deflected Netanyahu’s proposal to make the size of Iran’s stockpile of close-to-bomb-grade uranium the threshold, that, if passed, would trigger a US military strike on the Islamic Republic's nuclear facilities.

While Obama reiterated the assurance that the US won't allow Iran to manufacture a atomic bomb, he was unwilling to agree on any specific action by the Islamic Republic – like reaching a defined threshold on nuclear material, or failing to adhere to a deadline on negotiations – that would lead to military action by the US.

This guy is so far in over his head and the leftard professors that he has stuffed his administration with cannot find the solutions in any text books or in the communist manifesto. We are ****ed because they are incompetent and dangerous.

I honesty think these Islamo-crazies have not yet quite figured out that the guy who replaced Bush is nothing like Bush when it comes to attacks on the U.S. When they figure out they’ve got another washy-washy, indecisive, hand-wringing Bill Clinton on their hands, watch out for more 9/11 stuff.

Kind of like their position on abortion. It’s not a baby/bomb until it is born. Except that in the case of an Iranian nuclear bomb, they don’t want to abort it. So think about that. They don’t mind murdering millions of babies through abortion and they don’t mind allowing Iran to have a weapon that will enable them to kill millions of Israelis.

Can there be a clearer picture of the spirit of antichrist?

Matters not. Hussain will probably arm Iran with nuclear weapons should the need arise in his perception.

That nuke will never be found in Iran. It will go quickly to New York Harbor where it will be detonated. And when that happens it will be over for America.

Yes, when they explode a nuclear bomb in Israel, then they will have crossed the line. Then we will be very upset. /s

I think some of you have this wrong. We know Obama and his cronies have it in for Syria and Iran (funny how they are the only two major Shiite-led powers and Obama seems cozy with the Sunnis...)

Obama doesn't want to commit to a specific circumstance, because he wants a free hand to attack Iran. It's going to happen, if not this term, then his second term. Committing to some kind of red line ties his hands.

Syria, one of the only two major Shiite-led countries is all but paralyzed with a civil war. While Iraq has a lot of Shiites, two of the top three positions are Sunni.

That leaves Iran as the only major Shiite-led power left in the region. You know Obama would love to knock off the government of Iran or at least weaken Iran significantly. Iran has done a lot to try and keep Shiites in power in Iraq and to try and keep the Syrian government propped up, but it's only a matter of time until Iran stands alone.

I think if Iran dropped a nuke on NYC, Obama would reassure us that they weren’t really attacking the United States.

Obama is working to transfer power away from America. It’s part of his anti-colonial stick. Romney will have to purge the Intelligence, Military and State Departments to keep this policy from continuing. It’s like a hydra of bad ideas.

Basically he wouldn’t commit himself to anything, just voted “present” again.

Obama’s redline on Iran's nuclear proliferation is somewhere between the 5th and 10th nuclear weapon going off in Israel. After which he will start drafting a sever letter of apology to Iran.

I do understand that... but obama had his own reasons for doing it. He trusted these satanic animals because he is one of them and he thought that they would follow his taqiyya and allow obama to appear to usher in a peace in the ME and force Israel into submission. I heard this from an ex IDF Colonel.

He is ignorant and incompetent because his master plan has failed to materialize as he wanted it to. Things have escalated far beyond his power to control them and he and his advisers are floundering and the press can't save him this time. He wants to do the things that you say but he also wants to be supreme ruler and savior of the world. He can't even keep his lies straight today.

The feds (which dept - State, I can’t remember, too much going on) knew 48 hours before the attacks in Cairo and Libya - that embassies/consulates would be attacked. The warning was NOT passed on to the embassy in Cairo or the consulate or embassy in Libya. It was know. It was not passed on.

0bastard wants war in the ME and I think his fear of losing the election is spurring the chaos on. He wants a war in the ME while he is president, so our mil can be damaged and Israel destroyed. He doesn’t want peace. He wants dominance.

I don’t know about the ex IDF colonel’s inside knowledge, I have no clue. My opinion is from (too much) reading...

When hippie chicks with names like “Star” voice opinions like that, it is sometimes sort of cute, though obviously ditzy.

When people that hold high gov’t position in the area of nuclear weaponry show themselves to be complete blissninnies, it is quite a frightening thing.

Saudi Arabian bases was an excuse just as the stupid video. Mogadishu was about war lords starving people that turned into an incredibly botched UN feed the hungry mission. The two African Embassies were about attacking American sovereign soil.

“Is this for real?”

Someone at Google or someone reported to google that I have malware. I have had others scan my site and I have personally scanned my site for malware and found none.

Therefore, I have to conclude that this an error of Google or- something else. You decide.

But, I have had zero complaints of those who visit my site of malware. Friday, I had over 3500 visitors and downloads and no complaints.

I also cut and paste the entire week’s posts to a friday post here at FR. No complaints there either. -Ah well...
