Skip to comments.Obama: Does Romney want ‘to start another war’ in Middle East?
Posted on 09/23/2012 8:04:00 PM PDT by WilliamIII
President Barack Obama hit back hard in a "60 Minutes" interview broadcast Sunday at Mitt Romney's criticisms of his handling of Syria and Iran, saying that if the Republican standard-bearer "is suggesting that we should start another war, he should say so." Obama also brushed aside talk that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has been pressuring him to take a harder line on Iran's suspicious nuclear program source of some of Romney's sharpest campaign-trail criticisms. "When it comes to our national security decisions-- any pressure that I feel is simply to do what's right for the American people. And I am going to block out any noise that's out there," the president said. "Now I feel an obligation -- not pressure but obligation -- to make sure that we're in close consultation with the Israelis-- on these issues, because it affects them deeply," Obama said. "They're one of our closest allies in the region. And we've got an Iranian regime that has said horrible things that directly threaten Israel's existence."

Comparing the President to a pig is offensive to Islam. You need to be more sensitive.. /s
Obama certainly doesn’t want to do anything to prevent Iran from destroying Israel.
Obama brushes off Israeli pressure over Iran
“Obama, interviewed for Sunday’s edition of “60 Minutes” on broadcaster CBS, said he understands and agrees with Netanyahu’s insistence that Iran not be allowed to obtain nuclear weapons as this would threaten both countries, the world in general, and kick off an arms race.
But Obama added: “When it comes to our national security decisions — any pressure that I feel is simply to do what’s right for the American people. And I am going to block out — any noise that’s out there.”
Obama also doesn’t think Iran getting the nucear bomb is bad for the US too...
Please don’t insult pigs...
More US troops have died in Afghanistan since obummer got to office than all the Bush years.
Obummer has whacked more militants with drone strikes than any predecesser.
Obummer has allowed the govts of Libya and Egypt to fall into the hands of the muslim brotherhood.
Obummer has denied any help to Israel effectively daring their enemies to attack because they think we will do nothing.
Obummer has set the plate for war in the middle east by not addressing the belligerance of Iran.
There has never been a modern dim president that didn't think a good war was a cure for a bad economy. Right FDR? JFK? LBJ?
Mark Steyn - Strong Horse, Weak Horse: Power and Perception
“As a guest speaker for the 23rd Annual Fleet Admiral Chester W. Nimitz Memorial Lectureship in National Security Affairs, Mr. Mark Steyn spoke on Thursday, March 15th 2007.
“Strong Horse, Weak Horse: Power and Perception” “When people see a strong horse and a weak horse, by nature they will like the strong horse,” said Osama bin Laden. A “strong horse” is perceived as such not by his power but by his willingness to use that power: America’s military capability is not in doubt; what is in doubt is America’s ability effectively to use that capability to enforce its interests in the world. More to the point, the precise forms of power needed in the 21st century are precisely those from which America most recoils.”
Obama is making TV commercials for Romney free of charge. Just play these sound bites back to the American people and win the election.
He makes Orwell proud. Now that he’s installed his war-mongering anti-American MuslimBros pals into power in the mid-east, and now that he’s protected the aggressive anti-American Islamic Iranis and their nuclear missle building program for 4 years, he’s gonna try to blame the inevitable violence on Romney?? What bs! (Maybe he realizes he can’t keep blaming all his mistakes on Bush anymore????) Lord , Lord We need a new President!!
Obama: The Weak Horse
The Islamic war on the west has been going on since Mohammed was declared the prophet of Allah in the seventh century. For nearly fourteen hundred years, Islam has waged a holy war against all other religions and peoples of the world.
Albert Einstein said, “The world is in greater peril from those who tolerate or encourage evil than from those who actually commit it.” Einstein was a Jew who saw Adolf Hitler and the Nazis rise to power in Germany. By tolerating evil, Western political leaders put those who love freedom and liberty in extreme peril. Leadership is not merely lacking: it is treacherously absent. The president of the United States of America has traditionally provided leadership for the free world. However, Barack Hussein Obama has failed to provide any effective leadership whatsoever to resolve the issues brought forth by the rise of Islam. To the contrary, what ineffective gestures he has made to date have only increased our danger. Many people wonder how this could be.”
im trying to figure out why, post 9-11, we didnt ramp up and send the whole friggin might of the USA into afghan and iraq, instead of playing this piecemeal, ROE type pattycake game with these animals...
i know, its rhetorical, but dayum im sick of the whole mess, politically and militarily...either get in it to win, or stay home and quit talkin about it...
Because they have to lie to voters about how easy it will be to keep their support. This is why the surge wasn't till 2007.
Who wants to own those hell-holes with those hopeless people? Not China.
I recently saw a re-run of The Lion in the Desert starring Anthony Quinn. In the cold war days we used to cheer the foolish Italians and Soviets trying to take over those countries and getting whipped.
“They’re [Israel] one of our closest allies in the region. And we’ve got an Iranian regime that has said horrible things that directly threaten Israel’s existence.”
One of the closest? Can you name another?
Israel is not only the closest ally in the region, they are THE ONLY ally we have.
So typical of Zero. He blames someone else for doing what Zero has already accomplished.
That's really rich, huh. The Obamanation is playing the old war-monger card on the challenger, but Obama the "I set the Middle East ablaze" incumbent is the king of war, death, and destruction.
Wow, a lot of veiled venom in that sentence.
more like go over, destroy everything so they have *something* else to do for a few yrs, kill all the heirarchy, and then leave...
The move is on to consolidate the Muslim world under the Muslim Brotherhood.
People still believe 0bama's foreign policy is simply bumbling and incompetence.
0bama has set Israel up the bomb...
Sept. 11, 2012
Netanyahu gets the cold shoulder.
The embassy in Cairo puts out an apology for a movie most of the rioters know nothing about.
0bama sent a letter to Tehran assuring them that the U.S. will do nothing to help Israel. That takes that off of the table removing a big worry for them that might have made them think twice. Iran is good to go now with 0bama's blessing.
The "movie" turns out to be a red herring excuse to cover for the rioters.
Quite a day of unfortunate coincidences. Israel was rebuffed and there were signals being sent to the MB and Iran. 0bama is giving the "go ahead" to the Muslim world to take out Israel.
Obama Admin Transferred 3,000 Detainees to Afghan Gov't Control Day Before 9/11
U.S. denies premeditation report
"The Obama administration is flatly denying a blaring British newspaper report that the U.S. diplomats in Libya were killed as a result of a continuing security breach, and that credible information about possible attacks had been ignored. A U.S. official told POLITICO: There's no intelligence indicating that the attack in Benghazi was premeditated."
Is that all incompetence? Or did it take planning to make all that happen?
Cloward & Pliven strategy and community organizing on a global scale?
This isn't just about getting re-elected, that's certainly a side benefit, this is about the big enchilada. No more Israel. The United States of the Muslim Brotherhood in the ME. ie the new Caliphate.
bump for later!
