Jerusalem Post ^ | 11/2/13 | Maya Shwayder

Posted on 11/02/2013 9:39:54 PM PDT by Nachum

NEW YORK – While the US has “implemented unprecedented sanctions and pressure on Iran, we may very well have to use military force to back up our policy,” Leon Panetta said on Thursday night. The former US defense secretary and CIA director made the remarks while addressing around 600 people at the Anti-Defamation League’s 100th annual meeting Panetta, who was receiving the ADL’s William and Naomi Gorowitz Institute Service Award, said the US needs to “maintain a healthy skepticism” when negotiating to suss out Iran’s true level of commitment to negotiations over its nuclear program. “It is the Supreme Leader

Iran has buried its nuclear “factories.” There is more than one way to skin a cat. Why not bomb the entrances and exits so no food or people can enter or exit. Yes, missiles can be fired but Israel has good anti-missile capabilities and perhaps Dear Leader might even fire off some U.S. anti-missile weapons.

"That's our new job in the world, bombing brown people! Iraq, Panama, Granada, Libya, you got some brown people in your country, tell them to watch the .... out or we will bomb them! Well, when is the last white people you can remember that we bombed. Can you remember the last white people? Can you remember any white people, we have ever bombed? The Germans! Those are the only ones and that is only because they were trying to cutting in our action. They wanted to dominate the world! Bull----! That's our job! Now, we only bomb brown people. Not because they are trying to cutting in our action, just because they are brown." - George Carlin

Sounds like Obozo has received his orders from Saudi Arabia.

It’s actually a great idea to take down the Iranians...my worry is the clown at the helm.

Never forget there is a Universal Draft Bill sitting somewhere on a democrat's desk just waiting for the perfect moment to be orchestrated.

Universal National Service Act — The New Draft Bill I do believe this has been quietly updated every year, waiting for the right crisis to arrive.

Obama wants his civilian force and a compliant military, will they give him that with Iran? We stopped him over Syria, will We the People be able to stop him again over Iran? Remember the proxy war in Syria is with Iran and they have now had months to build their case.

What happens if Israel is 'struck' by Iran? What if it is via Syria?

Patriots in the cause and defense of our ally, Israel. What a crazy and seemingly odd turn of events it would be, no? Suddenly the President that has made every snub of Israel, goes to war in defense of her.

0bama ...the chaos maker, has lit nearly every fuse in the Arab world. And yet, if one considers the leader's goals, if one understands the chaos is just distraction, history may recall him as one of the most brilliant soft tyrants the world has ever known. Israel is 0bama's checkmate on the guilt of the patriot, his string to pull to gain control over YOU. Would you or any patriot not rise to serve in defense of the beloved Israel? How many on this very board would call Obama a stopped clock, never realizing it is the chaos maker himself that caused the crisis?

0bama is no friend of Israel. Israel is but a tool to be manipulated and used to justify the ends. The middle east is a chess piece to a larger goal in 0bama's mind. Israel is the endgame piece to 0bama's goal of a totalitarian state in America.

Panetta hasn't been to the White House since right before his Benghazi testimony.

He hasn't been told Obama is actually going to be reducing and lifting Iranian sanctions.

Just a few remarks by someone with no decision-making power, to make himself and his former massah look good.
