A Commentary by J. D. Longstreet
With Obama's reelection, there is absolutely no reason for Israel to wait any longer to attack Iran. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu knows that America/Obama will not be there to aid them. That also means Obama will not be able to interfere with Israel's plan for a raid on Iran any longer.
We now know that -- as we reported some days ago now -- the Obama Regime has been secretly negotiating with Iran -- behind Israel's back -- for some sort of compromise deal on suspending Iran's endeavor to create the "Islam Bomb" (An Atomic Bomb). Obama's number one advisor, who, by the way, was born in Iran(!) has been leading those negotiations with the Iranians.
Over the past four years, we have learned that our President is, well, I won't say he's a coward, but I will say he is, oh, shall we say -- "risk averse?" He has shown he will do practically anything to avoid a confrontation, especially a military confrontation.
Iran knows they are negotiating from a position of strength, because they already know Obama will give away the farm in order to avoid a military conflict.
Israel knows it, too. And it looks as though Netanyahu has decided it might be best, for Israel, if they handle the attack on Iran's nuclear facilities on their own -- unencumbered by a limp-wristed American administration.
Netanyahu recently told an Israeli TV station that he is prepared to act unilaterally in a strike against the Iranians, as the United States has failed to show outright support for an Israeli strike on the nation.
Netanyahu went on to say: “When David Ben-Gurion declared the foundation of the state of Israel, was it done with American approval?” When Levi Eshkol was forced to act in order to loosen the siege before 1967, was it done with the Americans’ support?
“If someone sits here as the prime minister of Israel and he can’t take action on matters that are cardinal to the existence of this country, its future and its security, and he is totally dependent on receiving approval from others, then he is not worthy of leading,” Netanyahu assured the TV audience: “I can make these decisions.” SOURCE: http://personalliberty.com/2012/11/07/netanyahu-ready-to-press-the-button-on-iran/
Israel has been quietly building up a task force, and the materiel such a task force would need, including Israeli built tankers for in-flight refueling of it's fighter-bombers, and negotiating for emergency landing fields for damaged aircraft after the raid.
To be sure, Israel is going to attack Iran -- and soon.
So how does it involve America if Obama won't take part in the raid? Simple.
Once the first round is fired, the first bomb is dropped, the first missile is launched, Iran will lash out and unquestionably attack American forces, in the area -- whether our naval vessels or our troops in the area. Most likely, Iran will attack both. You see, Iran WANTS war!
The American military chieftains know this. They also know their Commander-in-Chief is a wimp. They also know they will be required to operate under rules of engagement ordered out of the Oval Office from a man who doesn't know which end of a rifle is the muzzle. (Hint for lefties reading this piece: The muzzle is the open circular discharging end of a gun.)
There is little doubt the US will take casualties, a lot of casualties. So, whether we want it or not, we are going to be involved in a war that will likely encompass the entire region of the Middle East with the possibility of it spreading to eastern European countries and the Muslim states of North Africa as well as those in the eastern Horn of Africa. Few nations on earth will be untouched by the coming war. In fact, there is every reason to expect that the continental United States will be attacked, as well.
Russia, an ally of Iran, has been looking for a fight with the US for a while now. Mighten they not find this an excellent time to flex their military muscle against a US military which is in decline under Obama's leadership?
See, they know Obama can be beaten. They just saw the US President leave four Americans to be murdered rather than send in the military to save them. Remember what we said about Obama being "risk averse" above? These things do not go unnoticed by our enemies.
Unlike the American leader, the Israeli leader, Netanyahu, has the cahones to do what needs to be done. And he will. Count on it.
