Peres: Obama Will Attack Iran if Diplomacy Fails
Arutz Sheva ^ | 13/4/13 | Elad Benari

President Shimon Peres said that he believes that U.S. President Barack Obama will attack Iran’s nuclear facilities if diplomatic efforts fail.

"I have no doubt that if diplomatic talks fail with Iran and Tehran doesn't stop accelerating its nuclear development – U.S. President Barack Obama will conduct a military attack against Iran," Peres told the Israel Hayom newspaper this week, in an interview ahead of Israel’s 65th Independence Day next week.

"Preventing Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon isn't only an Israeli interest, but a global and an American interest. As long as the U.S. is in the lead — why shouldn't we use its assistance?" Peres said.

"It could be that the Iranians are trying to buy time, but they are also losing. The situation in Iran is greatly deteriorating, the economy is collapsing, and the people understand this very well," said Peres. The full interview with Peres will be published in Israel Hayom on Monday.

The latest round of international discussions with Iran over its nuclear program ended in Kazakhstan this past week without any breakthroughs and the sides even failed to set a new date and time for a resumption of talks.

In fact, Iran insisted this week it will not suspend its enrichment of uranium to 20 percent nor will it ship out its existing stockpile, two keys demands of world powers in failed nuclear talks with Tehran.

Obama made some non-committal positive sounding remark which Peres interprets the way he wants to.

The only circumstances where Bronco Bama would attack Iran are if they converted to Judaism or Christianity, or if they were in a conflict with an even more extremist muslim entity.

But only so that he can gain the credibility in the Islamic world that he’ll need in order to take on Iran, which has the Sunni world s@#$ing its pants, and even then he’ll only attack Iran if diplomacy ever fails, but it won’t ever fail as “failure” is defined by Obama and Kerry. It already has failed as “failure” is defined by everyone except Peres.

Any Iranians living in any Republican state should worry. That’s the only place Obama will attack.

$10 says Bathhouse-Boy-In-Chief-Faggot doesn’t have the stones to do it. He’s a 100% committed muslim POS, who wants the murderous caliphate to succeed, worldwide, and attacking Iran wouldn’t fit that agenda.
