Why the War Party Fears Hagel

Israel is not looking for war they are just looking for an effective way to prevent Iran which has threatened them from getting a nuclear bomb. If Israel feels they need to militarily prevent Iran from getting it they will they have not asked America to go to war for them just to support them if they feel they need to. Bibi is not looking for war and knows first hand the horrors of war but is also not willing to see an Islamist fundamentalist regime who supports terror with a nuclear bomb.

If Israel is "not looking for war," they sure seem to find it a lot.
In the fortnight since Chuck Hagel's name was floated for secretary of defense, we have witnessed Washington at its worst.

Who is Chuck Hagel?

Born in North Platte, Neb., he was a squad leader in Vietnam, twice wounded, who came home to work in Ronald Reagan's 1980 campaign, was twice elected U.S. senator, and is chairman of the Atlantic Council and co-chair of the President's Foreign Intelligence Advisory Board.

To The Weekly Standard's Bill Kristol, however, Hagel is a man "out on the fringes," who has a decade-long record of "hostility to Israel" and is "pro-appeasement-of-Iran."
