Bibi Tries to Rally Support for WWIII

Wednesday, November 2, 2011

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is trying to rally support in the Knesset for an attack on Iran, according to sources close to Israel.

Israel’s defense minister Ehud Barak and the foreign minister Avigdor Lieberman said to be among those backing a pre-emptive strike to neutralize Iran’s nuclear ambitions.

But a narrow majority of ministers currently oppose the move, which could trigger a wave of regional retaliation.

Both China and Russia have said they will not tolerate a pre-emptive attack on Iran.

The debate over possible Israeli military action has reached fever pitch in recent days with newspaper leader columns discussing the benefits and dangers of hitting Iran.

Israel has long made it clear that it will not allow Iran to obtain nuclear weapons that could threaten the Jewish State.

Israel’s former defence minister Benjamin Ben-Eliezer told Haraatez newspaper that he feared a “horror scenario” if Israel attacked Iran.

Washington is also strongly opposed to Israel taking unilateral action against Iran.

    I said at the time, the U.S. would regret the day we stood idly by and allowed Iran to obtain yellow cake uranium. Their intentions were never for “peaceful reasons and energy,” as they claimed. Iran always intended to build a nuclear bomb and target the hated Israel. If there is a regional nuclear war between Israel, Iran, China and Russia, we have Obama to blame for his failure to lead.

    I remember – – that stuff they got from Niger.

    Bibi is NUTS!

    Israel has every right to defend herself.

    Netanyahu has a legal and a moral obligation to protect the Israeli people from potential attack. What saddens and frustrates me is how the USA under President Obama’s leadership, seems to have tossed Israel — a longtime ally, under the bus marked “Arab Spring.”

    Now, Israel must go forth alone.

    Reuters reports, “Iranian missile may be able to hit U.S. by 2015”. They also say Iran and Syria have jointly rearmed both Hezbollah and Hamas. I understand very well how Israel is freaked out. What I don’t understand is how casual Obama can be about these developments. When scholars write the pages of history of this time, I have to believe they will question why the U.S. failed to play a more decisive role of stopping the Sharia monster.

  7. The idea that Iran is a threat to the U.S. or Israel is absurd. Any first strike by Iran would mean its own total and complete destruction. Fear thrives in ignorance, peace thrives in understanding.

    Well said Gary !!

    We need more fear for the war machine and that’s what is coming from BWM (big whore media) about Iran. And Gary nailed it to the cross about the consequences of any attack from Iran.

    And the sheep will bleat in fear when they turn in at night that those killer Iranians are planning an attack here. The horror!

    Iran’s ability to strike Israeli is very real. A mere 900 miles distance Tehran and Tel Aviv.

    Iran could encourage its Shia allies in Iraq to attack American forces as they withdraw from the country before the end of the year timeline. American diplomats who stay behind would be at grave risk.

    Iran could encourage the Afghan Taliban, with which it has developed a closer relationship in the last couple of years, to step up its attacks on NATO forces in Afghanistan. The Italian forces in Afghanistan are particularly vulnerable.

    American bases across the country would be even more at risk than they are today. U.S. bases in the Gulf states, including Kuwait, Bahrain, Qatar, the United Arab Emirates, and Oman are in range of Iranian missiles and terrorists.

    Hizbullah and Iran have contingency plans for attacks on American diplomatic and other targets across Europe, Africa, Asia, and here at home. They don’t need to rely on Mexican drug cartels to hit inside America.

    Iran and its allies can also strike at Israel. Hizbullah proved in 2006 that it can turn northern Israel into a war zone, forcing the mass evacuation of Haifa and other cities. Now it has missiles that can reach Tel Aviv. Iranian missiles could target Tel Aviv as well.

    To discount such geopolitical realities is simply naive.

    Iran will wipe Israel off the map so easily its not funny. Anyone who thinks they can not has no clue. Bibi is a warmongering warhawk…the current cycle of war is written and the evidence that NetanYahoo! wants to start it is clearly evident. The Wikileak cable to the Pentagon is just one piece of evidence. It is just a matter of time before the election 2012 that this happens. War always helps 2 term war presidents win and depressions/recessions end! Cycles bitches!
