Obama Promises Bunker Busters To Israel If Netanyahu Delays Iran Invasion Until After US Elections
Zero Hedge Blog ^ | 03/08/2012 | Tyler Durden

Posted on 03/09/2012 12:37:37 PM PST by RicocheT

"Two days ago Obama held a press conference in which he openly prevaricated and disinformed the world about the true nature of his meeting with Israel PM Netanyahu. Today we find what was truly discussed, courtesy of Israel's Maariv newspaper, Spiegel and Reuters, which all tell us that it was a simple case of quid pro quo, namely that Barack Obama would supply Israel with bunker-busters and refueling planes if Bibi promised to delay an Iran attack until after the presidential election. The implication is simple - avoid an oil price shock this summer and delay it until next winter when Obama will be safely in his throne for another 4 years, ...."

Obama says, "Israel set aside your national interests and security and believe my insincere promises to protect you. After all, my own people are suckers and believe me and you too must be suckers."

Meanwhile Iran works on the final steps to have nuclear weapons capable of incinerating Israel and a lot of the USA. Note to N. Korea, US taxpayer funded food for pretending to stop upgrading your bombs and missiles.

If Iran launches a nuclear attack on Israel, Obama should be tried for aiding genocide and treated like other Jew-haters after WWII.

The intention is to get Israel and the US blown away - which is the “Muslim agenda” which Obama told the Egyptian ambassador that he supported. Not even this self-centered brat could seriously believe that his own presidency was more important than Israel and the US combined; so the destruction of those 2 countries has to be the plan and not merely a by-product of him acting selfishly.

Obama is beneath contempt. What a vile & evil man to put his re-election prospects above the safety and security of Israel.

The US under the Muslim-in-Chief is Israel’s most dangerous enemy.

And the first words out of Obama’s mouth, if he becomes president will be, “suckers”.

I love how Hussein said he always has Israel’s back...

If I were Bibi, I would have said, Thank you, Mr. Obama, but Israel prefers that you stand where she can see you.

Yeah,
Netanyahu needs to keep from protecting Israel to help obammy get re-elected cause obammy has been so very cordial to Mr. Netanyahu and Israel.

GO Israel, knock hell out of Iran. Please do it NOW.

If this quid-pro-quo deal is factually true and not just speculation on the part of the author and/or his sources,
this needs to be exposed far and wide.

Along with it being a disgraceful disregard of the Israelie dileama ,it is willful interference in domestic politics using the good faith and credit of the US.

Surely even leftists can see the wrong in this. It may be in keeping with their objectives but it is still wrong.

I am more concerned about the details of how the Israeli Security Cabinet works. Sounds like they need to achieve a consensus of 8 people from all across their political spectrum to authorize an attack. Seems like trying to herd cats.

What deal? I thought Israel didn’t have an aircraft that can carry our largest bunker buster. We already gave Israel smaller bunker busters.

So then, rather than jeopardize Obama’s reelection chances, Israel is just supposed to sit there and wait for Iran to nuke them. Unbelievable.

Perfect! It is easier to confront the enemy before you than the snake in the grass who will strike you in the back. Obama has Israel’s back??? More likely readying a knife for Israel’s back.

Anyone here ever see a young Bibi in his military garb when he was one of their elite force members?

This is not his 1st time at a rodeo.

My guess is with an answer like that it is onto plan "B" what that is only he and his top personel know.

My guess? Have they reverse engineered our Bunker-Busters (if they have one or more) and how quickly can they make one or improvise something like it.

These are the techno-geniuses that made over 600 design improvements to the old lead-sled F-4 Phantom and made it do things it wasn't supposed to do.

To bad they didn't let the retrofit them with the F100 Pratts like they did to one Prototype.

The point is what else do they have up their sleeve...

Appears to support Ulstermann’s interview

Bibi looked into the soul of this narcissist and saw his evil.

Sutoro is willing to sacrifice lives, maybe many lives, to secure his OWN reelection.

Is Bibi really that stupid? I wonder what deal Obama made with the Iranians?

I can’t believe Netanyahu would stand for or agree to that! So if Iran happens to not realize they’re supposed to wait and they wipe Israel off the map, what then?

Craziness. This ass in charge of our government does worse things every day. Just when I think I’ve seen it all, it gets worse.

No, PM Netanyahu is far from stupid (unless he happens to be standing next to President Obama). Still, there are some even in Israel who think he is stupid or worse. Indeed, some go so far as to label him "Churchillian" -- a terrible insult.

“Look, Bibi, I know the mullahs over there have the warhead, and I know they want to use it on you, but this is my job, you feel me?

Michelle and the kids have gotten accustomed to a certain lifestyle, dig?

I’m just asking for a few months. Help a brotha out, yo!

It’s already hot down there. An extra 10,000 degrees Celsius isn’t going to make much of a difference.

You know man, that reminded me of a joke I heard at that forum at Havard I attended a week or so ago.

I’m horrible with jokes, but it was something about a Jew and ovens.

Anyway, just a couple of months, and you can has all the bombs you want.

My nigga?”

No, it's simpler than that: "The survival of Israel is far less important than my re-election. So you'll just have to wait. If Iran mounts a nuclear attack on you, too bad. First things first. Namely, ME, and to hell with everyone else."

I’m pretty sure Mr. Netanyahu is smart enough to understand that anything Mr. Obama promises will happen after the election will be conveniently forgotten by him after the election.

I have been told that FR doesn’t want anyone posting stories from Ulsterman here. But I think and hope that a link to the article that just appeared there might be regarded as an exception.

As background, Ulsterman is some sort of Democrat political insider who says he is sick of Obama and wants to dump him before he wrecks the party. Wall Street Insider, whom he interviews in today’s column, has also turned against Obama. In today’s comments WSI reveals that he is also Jewish. I think it’s worth a read. It pretty much agrees with the article on this thread:

This is the line from Ulsterman's WSI interview that caught my eye.

...what Barack Obama asks of Israel now -- what is threatened if Israel does not comply...

What is threatened? Are those assets in the Persian Gulf there to protect Iran from Israel? Has Obama told Israel that our military will blow out of the sky any Israeli assets used to attack Iran if the attack comes before the election? If true, this is alarming.

He refuses to say what he has heard about the meeting, so it’s just guesswork. What now seems to be public knowledge is that he refused the request for bunker busters, and he demanded that Israel should not do anything until after the November election.

Whether there is anything in it or not, I don’t know, but there is the suggestion that more was said, which he is unable to repeat.

At the very least, I would say, a denial of any support. And possibly a refusal to let Israeli planes or ships pass through areas that we control. How explicitly that might have been stated is anyone’s guess. But at the least, he seems to have said, “Don’t expect any help from us before the election is past. If you attack Iran before then, you’ll be sorry.”
