The US should issue a strict ultimatum to Iran, warning that the possibility of a military strike will turn into reality within weeks should Tehran fail to curb its nuclear program, Finance Minister Yuval Steinitz said Thursday. In the first such statement by a Cabinet member, Steinitz said: "The US must issue a clear ultimatum to Iran, tell it that if it does not change its behavior within weeks, the military option that has been on the table up until now will become relevant." "It’s time for the whole world, under US leadership, to issue Iran a clear ultimatum that if it does not change its ways in a clear and verifiable manner, it can expect an American attack, or at least a naval blockade," he said.

Regardless where it comes from, this President doesn’t have the cajones to do something like that. He’s a coward of the worst kind. Even if 100% of the American people wanted to do this, he wouldn’t have the guts to stand up.

That poor man needs a day or two a month to relax and collect his thoughts, give him the time so he can think.

Gawd, the stress he must be experiencing in these times under his watch.

I respect him for his fortitude alone.

What an unbelievable admission of weakness on the part of the State of Israel.

This Finance Minister reminds me of the woman who thought Obama was going to fill her gas tank.

Just finished re-reading “The Ezekiel Option” by Joel C. Rosenberg and am re-starting on “The Copper Scroll.” Can’t wait for Joel’s new book coming out in October.

FWIW, it seems to me that The Last Days are really picking up speed. The announcement today that Iran and Israel are to resume peace talks is one more sign. Don’t know if there is actually an progress, or if Shrillery is just priming the pump to give herself some cred for running against Zero. In any case: Even so, Come Lord Jesus!

And that ain’t the ONLY shame. France has bigger airplanes and faster trains, too.........and gets 80+ per cent of its electricity from nuclear power plants. WTH has happened to our CAN DO Country?!

Stienitz is a Useful Fool if he thinks Obama will do any such thing, unless it is simply words to get his Dems votes in the 2010 General, and then of course, the Iranians would celebrate that by nukeing Tel Aviv!

How stupid can one person be? Once the reactor has rods installed and started there can be NO attack without spreading a radioactive cloud over the Mideast and maybe even Russia. Does that sound like something the Mideast and Russia, not to mention Europe, will stand up and cheer us for? This is just a cynical move to ensure Iran gets the Bomb. Fools!

Let the Saudi’s deal with it. The Shi’a and Sunni’s have been bickering over who has the correct 12th Imam. The Saudi’s are filling their pants and have been goosing us to ‘do something’. No way.

Did he read the newspapers? We have a “Christian” president who can recite the Koran better than OBL, can sing the Islamic call to prayer in fluent, flawless Arabic and somehow has no fatwas against him for apostasy.

It’s more likely the Kenyan Usurper will order a military strike on Israel.
