Will Bibi break Obama?
World Net Daily ^ | 3/4/12 | Patrick J. Buchanan

Posted on 03/04/2012 6:12:10 PM PST by Impala64ssa

The prime minister of Israel is angry with Barack Obama and is coming here to force a hardening of U.S. policy toward Iran.

“Bibi” Netanyahu had his anger on display at a meeting in Israel with Sens. John McCain and Lindsey Graham.

Ads by Google A 9mm is False Protection Discover What Survivalist Masters & The Army Don't Want You To Know www.CloseCombatTraining.comMcCain emerged saying he had never seen an Israeli prime minister “that unhappy.” “He was angry,” said McCain. “I’ve never seen U.S.-Israel relations at this point.”

“The Israelis are unnerved,” said Graham. “They think the administration is sending the wrong signal, and so do I.”

What has so enraged Netanyahu? The Obama policy of tightening sanctions on Iran while holding out the opportunity for Tehran to negotiate and provide guarantees that its nuclear program is not aimed at an atomic bomb.

The U.S. intelligence community unanimously believes that Iran is some time away, perhaps years, from being able to produce a nuclear weapon and has not made the command decision to build one.

Israel retorts that Iran is entering a “zone of immunity,” when Israel will lack the ability to attack and abort Iran’s nuclear program, as new nuclear sites are being moved underground. Netanyahu’s government is also angry at what it sees as U.S. leaders’ distancing themselves from Israel.

When that fifth Iranian nuclear scientist was assassinated and Tehran accused America and Israel of complicity, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton denounced the murder, leaving Israel as prime suspect.

HIs best bet is to play it close to the vest and not tell Hussein anything.

Hussein is NOT to be trusted.

Why don’t we just cut the nonsense and make them the 51st state of the United States. We are supporting them anyway. Now at least they would be part of our country and sending money for their survival would be beneficial to them and us.

Bibi’s in a damned if he does, damned if he doesn’t situation.

Israel has a lot of defense stuff that’s maintained only at the pleasure of Washington. Bibi shouldn’t have to worry about that, but unfortunately it’s on his plate whether he wants it or not.

Israeli Intelligence is the envy of the rest of the world. If they say Iran is close, then I believe it. Our “stuff” coming out of the CIA sounds more like political talking points than real intelligence... but what do I know.

it’s an interesting thought - would be OK if it was any other country other than Israel. But since it’s Israel, I can’t picture it; plus I don’t think Israel would like the idea anyway. And how could they have the freedom to defend themselves at will... Well... Y’know, it’s funny, they sometimes act like they are holding back just because the US [or UN?!] is trying to hold them back; so in that sense, they sometimes _seem_ to act like a 51st state. Er, 58th?

The U.S. intelligence community unanimously believes...

Now, why doesn't starting a statement with that phrase reassure me?

I'm not convinced the US even has an "intelligence community", and if we do, one that functions at an effective level. Remember, all of these agencies have been instructed to ignore Middle Easterners and Muslims as potential terrorists. And the Democrats have destroyed our human intelligence resources, thinking we can do everything with satellites and drones.

There is also good reason to be concerned that our agencies are becoming primarily tools for domestic surveillance of US citizens, not foreign provocateurs.

Boy, what a surprise! Pat Buchanan taking the position of an Aryan nation. If a mushroom cloud rises over Tel Aviv Mr. Buchanan will have a lot of explaining to do which would be pretty ironic given how much he brings his religious views into his beliefs. Or does Catholic ideology view Israel’s role differently from Christianity?

well I mean, every once in a while, it almost “seems” as if Israel is holding back, just because the US is trying to get them to hold back. But they shouldn’t. ... There was even a time when France said something — that was none of France’s business to say anything! I mean, that’s what I thought at the time. Like, why should Israel’s govt. listen to anything that France wants to say about their conduct? But the US is _supposed_ to be an ally; I don’t know about France.

I am not saying that but if we stop all financial support they are finished. At least with them being a state they will survive and we can have them as a state. I bet if you asked most people in Israel they would love it. The problem is I am the ONLY one on Earth who ever thought of this and I just did so tonight. See I like to come up with bold and undiscovered results. It would be incredible if I were President for a year or two. The United States would be so powerful it would be incredible. I will settle for President Santorum however as I am busy the next two years already.

Obama is thinking in terms of elections, the PM of Israel the survival of his people and nation.

Frankly, I trust them more than our own government at this point. Our folks will “toe the line” and if the POTUS says there is no threat until after the elections, then that's the way it is for all the chips that fall under the executive branch.

Containment succeeded with a Soviet Empire with 10,000 nuclear weapons,

The Soviets weren't apocalyptic nutjobs, like both the religious and "Secular" leaders of Iran. The Russians love and protect their children. The Shiite nutters send theirs out to blow themselves up.. just so they kill a Jew or other Infidel.

but is apparently inadequate for dealing with an Iran that has no atom bombs, only the potential to build one.

So say the leaders of the same organizations that failed to predict or prevent a couple of dozen guys from killing nearly 3,000 people right here in the U.S.A.

Who wants that war? Netanyahu, his government,

IOW, the people likely to be the targets of any Iranian nukes or bioweapons.

Who does not want a war?

The White House, the Pentagon, the Joint Chiefs, the intelligence community, the antiwar left and Old Right – and millions of Americans who believe a U.S. war on Iran could ignite a sectarian and regional war that could prove catastrophic for the Middle East, the world economy and the United States of America.

All the folks who are out of range.. for now. Besides, who said anything about a US war on Iran? Just stay out of the way and let the Israelis do what needs doing. They are ones most immediately threatened by an Iranian nuclear weapons capability

Yes, there is no reason for Israel to want to become part of the US. No nation-state with a well-formed identity ever voluntarily chooses to merge itself in a larger identity (East Germany was a special case--not a separate German nation but a fraction of the German nation artifically kept apart from the rest by Stalin's decisions).

America would not benefit either--it would give the Democrats two more Senators and 10 or 11 sure Congressional seats.

If that were to happen the American leftstream media wouldn’t say one word about it. We would learn about it from overseas - probably Pravda. They aren’t as left wing as our media.

I hate Obama.

But this is not our war. Let them fly over us, and do what they think they need to do.

I am so sick of sending our folks to die for other countries.

You want war, declare it. But with that declaration the office of the President gains virtually unlimited powers. Be careful what you wish for folks...you will not like it when you unwrap this present.

We have an intelligence community but still need to check everyones ID; make everyone take off their shoes, sweaters and coats; empty their pockets; and take the contents out from their luggage etc just so they can board a plane that has a reinforced steel door, vigilant passengers and likely and armed sky Marshall.

Doesn’t instill me with confidence in our ‘intelligence community”.

Not WND, Pat Buchanan. And not Anti-Semitic, Anti-Zionist. You have to be careful with the labels. Iran was the original Aryan country according to historians. From Wiki: The term Aryan originates from the Sanskrit word ārya, in origin an ethnic self-designation, in Classical Sanskrit meaning "honourable, respectable, noble".[3][4] In the 18th century, the most ancient known Indo-European languages were those of the Indo-Iranians' ancestors. The word Aryan was therefore adopted to refer not only to the Indo-Iranian people, but also to native Indo-European speakers as a whole, including the Greeks, Latins, and Germans. It was soon recognised that Armenians, Balts, Celts, Albanians and Slavs also belonged to the same group. It was argued that all of these languages originated from a common root—now known as Proto-Indo-European—spoken by an ancient people. The ethnic group composed of the Proto-Indo-Europeans and their modern descendants was termed the "Aryans". All you have to do is go back to Pat's columns over the years; his writings have been lukewarm at best on the U.S.-Israeli relationship.

re: “Not WND, Pat Buchanan. And not Anti-Semitic, Anti-Zionist.”

It’s not clear to me how much your distinctions matter.
WND publishes his stuff.

And the Jewish/ Semitic/ Zionist supposed differences mean nothing in our day. The Zionist ‘movement’ is bankrupt.
Israel is the Jewish nation, although there are non-Jews living there as citizens, someone who is anti Israel is anti Jewish. (not anti-’someone living between x latitude and y longitude.)

a) We (and our allies) already ARE paying dearly;

b) BHO already has all the supernatural help he needs;

c) I pray every night for God to deliver us FROM BHO - THAT’S how God will bless America if He’s willing to do it one more time.

We all need to pray for America - NOT Obama. The two are diametrically opposed.

Good answers. Zorro is voicing RuPaul’s talking points, obviously. RP’s extremely scary on this subject (and foreign policy in general). Comparing Iran to Russia is ludicrous. But then, he’s so anti-semitic that it blinds him to the realities of Islam.
