WASHINGTON (AFP) – The Obama administration poured cold water Monday on any notion it is giving Israel the green light to attack Iran or that it is reconsidering plans to engage diplomatically with the Islamic republic.

What’s this? Did Biden speak out of turn or have another gaffe? This administration is funnier than Laurel and Hardy.

Since when does Israel need OUR permission to do anything? They are a sovereign country, & I hope they will kick some Mullah’s a$$!

GO FOR IT, ISRAEL!!!

I thought Joe Biden was part of the Administration — did I miss something? (sarcasm)

Biden hung out to dry once again by ZERO.

I wish Israel would just get the GPS location of each and every mosque that voted to support Imadinnerjacket, and then send cruise missiles into each one of them, during services!

Hey, tell me how Iran can strike Israel WITHOUT taking out religious sites?

How condescending for Obama to talk about giving, or not giving, Israel a “green light.” Last time I checked, it still wasn’t a US state or even territory.

Ironically, if Israel goes after Iran, it will probably be courtesy of Saudi Arabia, not us.

Someone seems to think that the US actually has a say over the sovereign actions of Israel regarding Iran...hmmm. Surely Obama has no such beliefs!

Excuse me Omamadumb, perhaps you didn’t know this, but Israel isn’t required to wait for a red or green light from you or any of your appointed traitors.

Another Biden tells more truth than Barry and the White House shuts it down. Hilarious that this administration cannot get any more in synch than it already displays. lulz...

And, they already have permission from Egypt and Saudi Arabia, both Islamic countries.

For Saudi to be on board with this is especially huge news, because Mecca lies within its borders. This is a pickle for Iranian mullahs, because what exactly are they going to do in retaliation, boycott Mecca?!?

I forgot about Egypt, tho I know their sub went thru the Suez Canal. I knew that the Saudis said they would look the other way if their air space was ever flown over (wink, wink).

"Ok? Everyone understand now? They’re both right.

Exactly!

That's how they want to play it. It's called covering all your bases, and when they are called on any "inconstancy" they can claim that, "well now: your taking that out of context. What I meant was....".

Double speak 101

After all; if you can't dazzle em with brilliance, ya gotta baffle em with B.S!

Speaking of GPS.
I would not be surprised if when Israel does attack Iran that the GPS system gets shut down or tampered with by order of the commander in chief. This will be to foul up GPS guidance by Israeli weapons.

The ISraeli’s are way ahead of odumbo. You can bet their pilots will have multiple ways of identifying their assigned targets.

Biden so it turns out is not dumb, only honest and candid. When the swine flu a few months ago seemed like it was taking off dangerously worldwide, Biden said that optional flying in an airplane wouldn’t be the most prudent thing in the world to do and that he’d say the same to his own family. Then, too, Obama distanced himself from Biden and laid him on the tarmac for speaking plain common sense.

The only thing that is holding them back is our Islamic ass kissing president. And even that wont hold it back when push comes to shove. Netanyahu's the man!

Sadly they'll take out the Saudi oil fields, which are within easy reach of their missiles.

Or send in suicide bombers (lots of Shi-ites inside Sunni Saudi Arabia.

This kind of plan already exists in retaliation for an Israeli attack. The attack would have to be extremely destructive to prevent local mayhem and detruction in the region.

On the other hand, the most painful retaliation for us will be soft underbelly attacks by suiciders all over the USA. Bad for us some good destruction of our country from Oba-Hussein’s eyes.

I don’t think the Saudis would have winked at Israel without a plan of their own in place. Maybe Israel will help guard the Saudi oil fields.

OK so maybe it’s a Yellow light.

Some people, when they approach a Yellow light, SPEED UP!
