Are matters coming to a head in the Middle East? According to a report by Sean Rayment of the UK Telegraph, the leaders of the United States are going to meet tomorrow, something that had previously not been announced, as annual naval exercises - the largest ever, are to bring a large flotilla of western vessels to the Strait of Hormuz:

And once again, except for a brief "for the people" photo op, Obama will likely meet him privately.

In the meantime, Net is on the Sunday talk shows. He's honest and wise and our newspaper are so inferior to Net, they should just shut up.

If Obama meets with you Bibi, watch him closely. He speaks with forked tongue, hates America, loves Iran and his adored “Muslim Brotherhood” brethren!!! Believe me, he is not one of us!!! And...he is certainly not a lover of Jews or Israel!!! How any sane American Jew can even think oF voting for this destroyer of Israel is beyond me!!!

Am I wrong to suspect an Israeli attack on Iran will help Obama in the election? And I realize gas prices will double the next day. Perhaps Bibi can hold off another 8 weeks?

Obamugabe is a failure!

I hope Bibi tells the punk to stay out of their way--let the adults take over--and do what you're told...you'll still go down as worse than Carter, but at least you'll have one thing going for you: you didn't get in Israel's way this time.

As the electon nears and Romney is pulling further ahead of Obama, Obama is attempting to get a war going in the Persian Gulf against Iran.

We've pulled diplomats out ... have the Brits and Germans and so on? Canada's pulled them out of Tehran, specifically, not sure of other hotspots.

This is a formality. Bibi is striking iran and can you imagine how oblunder would look if he turned down a meeting on the even of the strike?

Another do-over for Bambi. Question though, will he meet with him before or after he meets with the Muslim Brotherhood Egyptian President Mohammad Morsi. Knowing Obama, he’ll meet with Netanyahu before, so he can give the info to Morsi later.

Don't forget Obama is now looking at weeks ahead where all the lack of security about the Libyan attack is scrutinized.

ping for some good details of the exercise.

I say it remains to be seen if Obozo is truly meeting with Netanyahu or not. I’m more inclined to think he’ll send an underling while he goes out to play golf.

And why should Bibi or any other foreign leader dictate to the US? If Israel attacks Iran, it may very well result in US ships being attacked and many lives lost. The already fragile world economy will implode, and we could descend into depression and anarchy.

If we don’t want Israel to attack, then why don’t we just pull the plug on all the aid we give them? Does everyone understand that we are broke and our military is stretched to the breaking point? This is all nuts.

If I were Bibi, I’d tell him I was too busy getting my planes in the air to meet with him. That’s certainly a better excuse than Obama had for snubbing him.

You frame the question in an interesting manner, suggesting that Netanyahu is the dictator in this mess. That is a statement of questionable validity given the cast of characters.

Consider instead that perhaps Israel is backed into a corner with no good options for a way out. I would suggest that those threatening that nation’s existence and refusing to offer aid are acting more dictatorial.

A pre-emptive strike can cause chaos and war. Failing to act pre-emptively may allow the problem to grow out of control.

Should someone have stopped Hitler before he took over Europe? How do you deal with a murderous tyrant who is not open to reason?

I don't understand. Are you saying that Israel has never done anything for the U.S.? That Israel doesn't deserve our aid for some reason?

"Different countries have their own interests, and they act in their own interests. As an American, I always put America's interests first. However, as a Jew, I still have a spiritual connection with Israel. I hope and pray for Israel's continued safe existence, and I also believe that existence is important to the rest of the civilized, western world. Israel has accepted LOTS of US foreign aid over the years. At the same time, Israel has done some VERY heavy lifting for Western civilization. Among other things, they fought a proxy war for the US against the Soviet Union's proxies. And then there was that 1981 attack on Iraq's nuclear reactor. And much more recently, there was the Israeli attack on Syria's nuclear facility." -FReeper MarkL-

I agree. Bibi should publicly give Obama 3 options:

1. There will be no meeting and Obama can go pound sand.

2. Insist that Romney be included in the meeting.

3. If Obama is too busy campaigning, Bibi will settle for Romney and an empty chair.

Could this really be the beginning of Armageddon? Wouldn't be a kick if we are alive when the world ends, just like the Bible prophesy folks have been warning about?

Please contact Prime Minister Netanyahu and tell him from your heart what you think. Let him know you are from the USA. He needs to know that Obama doesn't represent what we believe, or who we are.

When you glance at a map and note the locations of Libya and Israel and consider the pressures of this upcoming election overshadowed by the events of this week and include the news that Two Norfolk-based ships head for Libya . . .those valuable military resources can and will be used to address whatever target the-current-occupant-of-the-oval-office prefers given their convenient proximation.

Your speculation & concern is shared by many.
