Quotes of the day

posted at 10:48 pm on March 5, 2012 by Allahpundit

“In a high-stakes meeting at the White House, Obama stressed that there’s ‘still a window that allows for a diplomatic resolution’ to the Iranian nuclear threat and that the United States, together with other nations, would continue to ‘tighten pressure’ on the regime through stiffer sanctions in the coming months.

“Even before their two-hour meeting and working lunch, there appeared to be some daylight in the approach to Iran between the two leaders, who have a famously cool relationship.”

***

“At the center of the debate is the murky question of the ultimate ambitions of the leaders in Tehran. There is no dispute among American, Israeli and European intelligence officials that Iran has been enriching nuclear fuel and developing some necessary infrastructure to become a nuclear power. But the Central Intelligence Agency and other intelligence agencies believe that Iran has yet to decide whether to resume a parallel program to design a nuclear warhead — a program they believe was essentially halted in 2003 and which would be necessary for Iran to build a nuclear bomb. Iranian officials maintain that their nuclear program is for civilian purposes…

“[S]ome intelligence officials and outside analysts believe there is another possible explanation for Iran’s enrichment activity, besides a headlong race to build a bomb as quickly as possible. They say that Iran could be seeking to enhance its influence in the region by creating what some analysts call ‘strategic ambiguity.’ Rather than building a bomb now, Iran may want to increase its power by sowing doubt among other nations about its nuclear ambitions. Some point to the examples of Pakistan and India, both of which had clandestine nuclear weapons programs for decades before they actually decided to build bombs and test their weapons in 1998.”

***

“This disagreement between allies has been brewing for nearly a year. As Newsweek reported last month, Israel stopped sharing key military planning data on Iran with the United States last summer. And while the exchanges have resumed, Israel is still keeping a ‘top layer’ of data to itself.

“Eiland told The Daily Beast that Obama had the ability to call off an Israeli attack if he sought an explicit promise from Netanyahu not to do it. ‘The real concern is what might happen if the president said in explicit terms something like ‘don’t do it,’ or ‘promise you won’t do it,’ and will insist on such a guarantee,’ Eiland said. ‘I am not sure this scenario will occur. But if it happens, and if the president is determined to convey such a clear message and will leave no room for any possible interpretation, then I think no matter what Bibi really wants, it will be almost impossible to make a decision in absolute contradiction to the president’s wishes.’”

***

“Israeli officials say they won’t warn the U.S. if they decide to launch a pre-emptive strike against Iranian nuclear facilities, according to one U.S. intelligence official familiar with the discussions. The pronouncement, delivered in a series of private, top-level conversations, sets a tense tone ahead of meetings in the coming days at the White House and Capitol Hill.

“Israeli officials said that if they eventually decide a strike is necessary, they would keep the Americans in the dark to decrease the likelihood that the U.S. would be held responsible for failing to stop Israel’s potential attack. The U.S. has been working with the Israelis for months to convince them that an attack would be only a temporary setback to Iran’s nuclear program…

“But the apparent decision to keep the U.S. in the dark also stems from Israel’s frustration with the White House. After a visit by National Security Adviser Tom Donilon, they became convinced the Americans would neither take military action, nor go along with unilateral action by Israel against Iran.”

***

“‘Two words: Jericho missiles,’ said one former White House and Pentagon official, speaking on condition of anonymity, when asked how Israel would attack Iranian targets at great distances. ‘They are conventionally armed, have a very small CEP (circular error of probability, meaning they are highly accurate) and can be used in conjunction with a strike fighter operation.’…

“The Jerichos are stored in tunnels in limestone formations around Hirbat Zekharyah and rolled out for firing. They would likely be used as part of a one-two punch, the officials say. The first attack would be carried out by Israeli strike fighters and would be intended to breach the heavily fortified outer ceilings of the facilities. The second (and possibly even third) wave would be missile attacks aimed at destroying the facilities within, the officials said.

“Asked if Jerichos would have the accuracy and the explosive power to take out hardened bunkers or fortifications believed to be protecting Iran’s most-sensitive underground nuclear facilities, a current U.S. official replied, ‘You would be surprised at their accuracy.’ The official added that the missiles’ warheads would contain a special mix of explosives that could penetrate the Iranian defenses.”

***

“The Iranian targets, General Cartwright and other American analysts believe, would include petroleum infrastructure in the Persian Gulf, and American troops in Afghanistan, where Iran has been accused of shipping explosives to local insurgent forces…

“In November, Israel’s defense minister, Ehud Barak, said any Iranian retaliation for an Israeli attack would be ‘bearable,’ and his government’s estimate that Iran is engaging in a bluff has been a key element in the heightened expectations that Israel is considering a strike. But Iran’s highly compartmentalized security services, analysts caution, may operate in semi-rogue fashion, following goals that seem irrational to planners in Washington. American experts, for example, are still puzzled by a suspected Iranian plot last year to assassinate the Saudi ambassador in Washington.

“‘Once military strikes and counterstrikes begin, you are on the tiger’s back,’ said Ray Takeyh, a former Obama administration national security official who is now at the Council on Foreign Relations. ‘And when on the tiger’s back, you cannot always pick the place to dismount.’”

***

“If the U.S. ever bombs Iran’s nuclear facilities, it’ll be Gen. Norton Schwartz’s planes and pilots that pull off the attack. So the Air Force chief of staff wants someone to explain what the hell the military objective of bombing Iran will actually be.

“‘Everything we have to do has to have an objective,’ Schwartz told reporters at a breakfast meeting Wednesday. ‘What is the objective? Is it to eliminate [Iran's nuclear program]? Is it to delay? Is it to complicate? What is the national security objective?’

“‘There’s a tendency for all of us to go tactical too quickly, and worry about weaponeering and things of that nature,’ Schwartz continued. ‘Iran bears watching’ is about as far as the top Air Force officer was willing to go.”

***

“‘The United States will always have Israel’s back when it comes to Israel’s security,’ Obama said, repeating a line from the Sunday speech as Netanyahu nodded in agreement…

“‘For them, you’re the great Satan, we’re the little Satan,’ Netanyahu said. ‘For them, we are you and you are us. And you know something, Mr. President? At least on this last point, I think they’re right. We are you and you are us. We’re together. … Israel and America stand together.’”

Allah, by his eternal grace, left Humpbot up all night–OR– he reposted it the next morning. We may have even had a reHumpbotting the next night for his penance. He even said “sorry!” just to calm things down a bit.

Amie Parnes and Jeremy Herb
This problem has been festering for a lot longer then 0′s reign, longer then Bush, though Bush should have taken care of it. Iraq undermined his abilities. 0 hasn’t had the will. Could it be he believes in the little one in the well?
JAMES RISEN and MARK MAZZETTI
What Allah, you going with articles it takes two to write? Proof that reliance on others to do intel isn’t worth a crap. For that matter our intel isn’t worth a crap. Intel isn’t worth a crap. The real headline should read, “Agency’s blind to Iran building a bomb.” I’m not a part of the intel group domestic, foreign or other. But I can tell you with 100% confidence Iran is building nukes. They want the little fellow in the well.
Eli Lake
I’ll side with Bibi on this, he needs to make the correct decision about when and how. I can’t blame him for his lack of faith in 0. Many of us in the US have no faith in 0. Make sure its the correct decision Bibi and don’t half a$$ it. It is your country’s self interest that must take precedent over other concerns. Iran has stated over and over they wish to exterminate the Jew’s. Don’t let them even have the chance. Do them in full.
KIMBERLY DOZIER
Israel must take this decision on its own. The WH and the world will not move in time to stop it. Russia and China will see to it. Sooner rather then later in my estimation. Drop the big sh*t on them so they can’t gear back up so quick. Selectively take out some key leadership roles.
Robert Windrem
I don’t think it is enough to do the job. I’ve been spending a little time over at global security taking a look at the Nantanz complex and others. It will if the math over there is correct going to take deeper penetration. Hence our new bunker busters. Nukes might do it, but no one wants to go nuke. I hope the Jew’s have something we don’t know about. If the US doesn’t cover Israel, it will be years of great shame, shame which we would deserve.
THOM SHANKER, HELENE COOPER and ETHAN BRONNER
Three to write this one? This article is the basis for my sum up.
Spencer Ackerman
Yep. Determine this completely on the frontside.
Video Man I wish Bibi was our President instead of 0.

Summation. Now is the time to completely take out all targets in Iran that pertain to their nuclear ambitions. Hardware, software, personnel. Including leadership. Field gut them and field dress them right there int heir own sand box. Do it with out regard for pc or just enough. Do it. If we think its will be ugly to do now for the region, just wait until they nuke up. That may well start WWIII. Doing it now insures Russia and China staying out of it. Neither of those country’s can currently muster the strength to go up against us. Wait and they may. Sorry to sound so gun ho, but in my view time is up. Waiting only makes it more painful and insures a larger conflict. We have let it fester to long. The current Iranian regime is fanatical religious nutjobs. They really would like to see the little one in the well. And they don’t like us much./

Bowing and scraping and apologizin’ (just to calm things down y’know) because we warned him—we friggin’ warned him in the days leading up to the election, HotAir was goin’ on the fritz–Allah remembers, the Moneybomb night–HA fritzed out. So, the warning flags were there. Alas, Allah chose to pet the kitteh and download KirstenPowers pics fully knowing she’d never go out with him.

I just watched the vid. Mr. Obama was in full actor mode, acting out the script and doing what he was told to do. I can’t imagine what was going through Bibi’s mind…He is such a mensch compared to the bath house boy we have as a leader.

angrymike on March 6, 2012 at 12:57 AM

Me neither. And proud of it.

infidel4life on March 6, 2012 at 12:56 AM

Infidel

I kinda like it, but I’m not right by any standard.

angrymike on March 6, 2012 at 12:57 AM

Wow, I’m also clairvoyant!

infidel4life on March 6, 2012 at 12:59 AM

Schadenfreude on March 6, 2012 at 12:56 AM

No worries.

infidel4life on March 6, 2012 at 12:59 AM

Infidel
See what you did there?
You read my mind and posted what I said before I said it, that’s really crazy!

angrymike on March 6, 2012 at 1:00 AM

No Kenyans were murdered at the hand of Hitler. Need I say more?

They fought in the second world war under the KAR and other colonial regiments.

CherryBombsBigBrownBeaver on March 6, 2012 at 1:02 AM

And what have we learned about asking personal questions???

She needs a couch, for several reasons.

Schadenfreude on March 6, 2012 at 1:02 AM

Well I’m going to hit the bed.
Or am I?
Night peeps!

angrymike on March 6, 2012 at 1:03 AM

I’m doing well, now that I’m settled in. Woke up this a.m. with a ten hour drive in front of me, four inches of snow on the ground and it snowed eight hours of the drive. Man do I love my truck! Like you I’ve been slammed. You gonna work? Guessing you have too. My breakneck two week session is done. Pleasure time for 4 days and then back at it.

Bmore on March 6, 2012 at 12:36 AM

Heck yeah I’m going to take those ot hours! 24 hours at time and a half! I do not have to take the ot, but you bet your bippy I am going to!

Sounds like you have a crazy work sched like me.

Here is one for you :)

tom daschle concerned on March 6, 2012 at 1:04 AM

Bmore
did you get that 10 hour drive done? I absolutely hate long drives!
If you ever near Cleveland, look me up!

angrymike on March 6, 2012 at 12:46 AM

It went well snowed its a$$ off most of the way. Mountains of West Virginia were pretty. If I ever get up your way you can count on it!

No, it’s the smartest thing to do. That’s why he compiles them.

Schadenfreude on March 6, 2012 at 12:47 AM

Yeah, Allah does a great job with QOTD. Before I started posting where you all could see it. I used to write it down in one of those little black and white composition books. I came across one before I left on the trip. It was cool to see it done that way. I guess that was the upside, its easier then going back and reading what I wrote, doing it this way. But no one will ever see them. I hope they get this site fixed soon. : )

Bmore on March 6, 2012 at 1:05 AM

I shouldn’t have had those funny mushrooms for dinner.

infidel4life on March 6, 2012 at 1:06 AM

Bmore on March 6, 2012 at 1:05 AM

You’re a real good one.

Schadenfreude on March 6, 2012 at 1:06 AM

infidel, sorry, I confused you with lib4life.

Schadenfreude on March 6, 2012 at 12:56 AM

I almost did the same thing. I started to reply, little one go back to sleep, its only a dream. ; )

Bmore on March 6, 2012 at 1:06 AM

tom daschle concerned on March 6, 2012 at 1:04 AM

That’s funny! That dude reminds me of a friend of mine. The one with the funny nose. Yep reminds me of ole Duff. He’s about like that. He’s funny too. : )

Bmore on March 6, 2012 at 1:09 AM

You’re a real good one.

Schadenfreude on March 6, 2012 at 1:06 AM

I don’t know about that, but I am trying to get better.

Bmore on March 6, 2012 at 1:13 AM

Good night angrymike.

Yep.

Bmore on March 6, 2012 at 1:25 AM

Yep.
Bmore on March 6, 2012 at 1:25 AM

I mean, you just feel sorry for Bibi for having to sit there talking to that moron. I’ve never been so embarassed for my country. Amateur hour in DC.

CycloneCDB on March 6, 2012 at 1:25 AM

Good night all.

You are posting comments too quickly. Slow down.

HA?

Bmore on March 6, 2012 at 1:26 AM

Weren’t you supposed to fix this dam* coffee maker?

Bmore on March 6, 2012 at 12:14 AM

LOL

:)

I am sure you won’t read this….
Take care friend.

Electrongod on March 6, 2012 at 1:45 AM

Obama stressed that there’s ‘still a window that allows for a diplomatic resolution’ to the Iranian nuclear threat and that the United States,

LOL.

I don’t know why Bibi even bothered talking to this POS. It’s nothing but a waste of time and Barky is about the most untrustworthy person around, anyhow. You can’t believe a word that comes out of his mouth. I loved how he promised Jews that Jerusalem would not be divided and then promised to chop it up for an arab audience not 24 hours later. Typical for the Indonesian Imbecile.

ThePrimordialOrderedPair on March 6, 2012 at 1:59 AM

About halfway through the “uhhs,” Obama started to falter, but by the 96th “uhh,” he totally nailed it!

His body language and thinly-veiled hostility, on the other hand…

Christien on March 6, 2012 at 2:10 AM

i just saw a clip of dear leader talking about having israel’s back…you just know he is not sincere in the least…

bibi do not trust this idiot

‘i like my predecessors in the oval office….’

it’s still all about the O and re-election….

“‘Everything we have to do has to have an objective,’ Schwartz told reporters at a breakfast meeting Wednesday.

dear leader’s objective is pretty clear, how will this make me look good and get re-elected….

cmsinaz on March 6, 2012 at 5:52 AM

I’ve been getting that too. It has also been auto-refreshing like the Drudge site. I really don’t like that.
