Has Obama Called Bibi's Bluff?

If the Jewish people have learned only one thing during their 2,000 year diaspora its this-When someone says they are going to kill you, you believe them! Whether or not part of Tehran's nuclear plan is peaceful, can the Israelis take that chance to wait and see? The United States has repeatedly, throughout the years, made Israel certain promises, namely that the U.S. would never allow a holocaust in the Middle East, and that Israel was our closest allie in that region-if not the entire world! So, Mr. Buchanan's assertion that Israel is trying to force the U.S. into a confrontation with Iran, essentially to fight Israel's war correct, or is Israel simply asking the U.S. to get out of its way, and not try to "strong-arm" Israel?

So you are arguing for a pre-emptive attack on Iran? Are you? That makes us the aggressors. We cannot be a nation of aggressors that initiate attacks. You can try and spin it anyway you like. If we launch a pre-emptive attack (attacking a country that has not attacked us), we are in the wrong.

Promises on who's behalf? Not mine. Two wrongs don't make a right. USA should not be pouring billions into any country via "aid" and that includes Israel. Jews make up what 2% of our population. Why do the other 98% have to support a foreign nation because somewhere between 0 and 2& of it's population seem to care more about it than the US?

SMyles,

Remember, the Israel Lobby is a "canard", to use Abe Foxman of the ADL favorite word when he is at a loss to refute a fact. We saw the Lobby in action over that nonsense involving Jerusalem at the DNC last week. Why in the hell should the status of a foreign city even be in a political platform here? These idiots should be worried about things here at home.

Obama,

Try refuting what SMyles. No one serious cares about that.

Thx Ryan. The Obama is right. I know it's not promises on "who is" behalf. But I'm sloppy and grammatically challenged. I write with my own form of ebonics. :)

What is Bibi Netanyahu up to?

With all his warnings of Iran's "nuclear capability," of red lines being crossed, of "breakout," of the international community failing in its duty, of an "existential threat" to Israel, what is the prime minister's game?

The answer is apparent. Bibi wants Iran's nuclear program shut down, all enrichment ended, all enriched uranium removed and guarantees that Iran will never again start up a nuclear program.

And if Tehran refuses to surrender its right even to a peaceful nuclear program, he wants its nuclear facilities, especially the enrichment facility at Fordow, deep inside...
