Quotes of the day

U.S. intelligence analysts watching for indicators of Israeli military action recently reported that there are signs the Jewish state plans an attack against Iran in October.

The Obama administration, meanwhile, is preparing to provide logistical support for a military strike but is pressing Israel to delay any action until the administration’s policy of sanctions have had more time to work, and that any attack would be put off until after the November presidential election…

Any Israeli military attack is expected to be carried out with little or no warning, which has meant stepped up monitoring of Israel by U.S. intelligence agencies for all indicators of an impending attack.

***

Israel’s prime minister on Sunday urged the international community to get tougher against Iran, saying that without a “clear red line,” Tehran will not halt its nuclear program…

“The [new UN] report confirms what I have been saying for a long time – the international sanctions are burdening Iran’s economy, but they are not delaying the development of the Iranian nuclear program,” Netanyahu said.

***

Iran dramatically increased its production of a more enriched form of uranium in recent months, U.N. inspectors reported Thursday, suggesting that the country’s nuclear facilities were ramping up their output even as Iran’s leaders engaged in international negotiations on possible curbs to its nuclear program…

The report, based on routine monitoring of Iran’s nuclear facilities, documented a sizable jump in Iran’s stockpile of uranium enriched to 20 percent, a level that can be converted relatively easily to the more highly enriched uranium needed for weapons. The report said Iran has 255 pounds of uranium enriched at 20 percent, up from 159 pounds in May.

But the IAEA also found that Iran had converted much of the new material to metal form for use in a nuclear research reactor. Once the conversion has taken place, the uranium can’t be further enriched to weapons-grade material, Obama administration officials said.

***

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu got into a diplomatic shouting match with US Ambassador Dan Shapiro over US President Barack Obama’s handling of Iran’s nuclear program, saying “time has run out” for diplomacy, Yediot Aharonot cited a source as saying on Friday…

A source that participated in the meeting said that a particularly angry and stressed Netanyahu began a tirade against the US president, attacking him for not doing enough on Iran. “Instead of pressuring Iran in an effective way, Obama and his people are pressuring us not to attack the nuclear facilities,” the source quoted Netanyahu as saying…

The American ambassador is said to have responded politely but firmly, telling Netanyahu that he was distorting Obama’s position. Obama promised not to allow Iran to obtain nuclear weapons, he explained, and left all options on the table, including military options.

***

Seven months ago, Israel and the United States postponed a massive joint military exercise that was originally set to go forward just as concerns were brimming that Israel would launch a strike on Iran’s nuclear facilities. The exercise was rescheduled for late October, and appears likely to go forward on the cusp of the U.S. presidential election. But it won’t be nearly the same exercise. Well-placed sources in both countries have told TIME that Washington has greatly reduced the scale of U.S. participation, slashing by more than two-thirds the number of American troops going to Israel and reducing both the number and potency of missile interception systems at the core of the joint exercise.

“Basically what the Americans are saying is, ‘We don’t trust you,’” a senior Israeli military official tells TIME…

In the current political context, the U.S. logic is transparent, says Israeli analyst Efraim Inbar. “I think they don’t want to insinuate that they are preparing something together with the Israelis against Iran – that’s the message,” says Inbar, director of the Begin-Sadat Center for Strategic Studies at Bar-Ilan University. “Trust? We don’t trust them. They don’t trust us. All these liberal notions! Even a liberal president like Obama knows better.”

***

A senior [Israeli] government official on Saturday characterized as “strange” a recent statement by US military chief Gen. Martin Dempsey that he would not want to be “complicit” in an Israeli attack on Iran.

“Dempsey’s comments are strange in that they would seem to contradict the continual statements from the White House that the security and defense cooperation between Israel and the US has never been as close,” the senior official said…

Amid the disagreements between Jerusalem and Washington over whether Iran needed to be stopped before it had acquired all components for a bomb (Israel’s position), or only once it started putting the bomb together, [Israeli intel chief Dan] Meridor said US President Barack Obama’s statement that he was committed to preventing Iran from getting a bomb, and would not be satisfied by containment of a nuclear Iran, needed to be taken seriously.

***

Israel’s vice prime minister Moshe Yaalon said on Friday he feared Iran did not believe it faced a real military threat from the outside world because of mixed messages from foreign powers.

“We have an exchange of views, including with our friends in the United States, who in our opinion, are in part responsible for this feeling in Iran,” he told Israel’s 100FM radio station.

“There are many cracks in the ring closing tighter on Iran. We criticize this,” he said, also singling out U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon for travelling to Tehran this week.

***

“There is definitely a narrative in the media right now – I’d say an overheated one – about tension between the US and Israel over Iran,” [U.S. ambassador Dan] Shapiro said, adding that this narrative does not “reflect the very close coordination and very intense work we’ve done together to address an issue that we perceive the same way, which is the importance of preventing Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons.”

Asked why the US did not give the Iranians a clear ultimatum – stop the nuclear program “or else” – Shapiro replied: “I think there is no mistaking what the US is prepared to do.” Shapiro said that Obama and Netanyahu, as well as their “teams,” speak regularly, and that the relationship “at the top” is “just what it needs to be.”

***

Mr. Dayan’s assessment seems to buttress the theory that the collective saber rattling is part of a campaign to pressure the Obama administration and the international community, rather than an indication of the imminence of an Israeli strike. Many analysts here believe that hawkish statements by Mr. Netanyahu and Mr. Barak this spring led to the harsher sanctions now in place, and that this is essentially Round 2…

While Mr. Netanyahu and Mr. Barak have been criticized as “messianic” in their thinking on the Iranian nuclear issue and are widely viewed as ready, if not eager, to take military action to stop it, Mr. Dayan said they would prefer that the United States led any attack, even if that meant waiting until after the November presidential election. But “they have to make the decision whether to strike or not before November,” he said, so they need to hear from Mr. Obama “in the coming two weeks, in the coming month.”

***

Almost four years into their partnership, the two most important players — Bibi and Barack — still seem out of whack with one another both personally and on some key policy issues.

What’s happening here? I’ve got a pretty simple diagnosis: Netanyahu’s policies and suspicions about American intentions have combined with Obama’s seemingly emotionless view of Israel to spell trouble. The absence of a common enterprise makes matters worse.

The Iranian challenge might still provide a grand reunion between the two parties. But if history is any guide, serious clashes between Israeli prime ministers and American presidents are not resolved by reconciliation but by the departure of one or the other. That may mean we’re in for an extended period of turbulence: I’m betting that in this case, both Bibi and Barack may be around for the long haul.

Though I believe the Bucs have the record for longest reg season losing streak, 1976–77 – 26 games in 2 seasons. I remember when they finally won a game to end that streak.

It was because of this that I became a Bucs fan. I figured a team that bad, with uniforms that bad, could use all the support they could find. After Super Bowl 37 (do I really have to use XXXVII?) no one laughs at me anymore.

Do we have to wait until January for Romney to take over? The only chance we have is if Romney is in the Whitehouse. And it might be too late.

Obama has already blown it. There is war in the air, whenever anyone says the word Iran.

Pray that Romney will know what to do about this. He and Netanyahu are old friends. Their wives are friends. But it is Iran that is the problem… How to stop Iran?

Maybe we can still find some dissentants? Obama blew this big time!

As a lifelong leftwinger steeped in Chicago left wing race politics, she is bound to have numerous friends among the mullahs both in Iran and by now across the world. Its inconceivable that she doesnt. Imo, she’s the best White House friend the Iranian crazies ever had.

My guess is that Jarrett is pushing or driving what appears in public to me to be Obama’s go slow, who cares really if Iran gets the bomb because Israel has it already Iran deserves it, the US dropped one on Hiroshima and we need to be taken down a peg or two attitude.

Who’s zooming whom?

I thought an attack, if coming, would have happened by now. Bebe has to know that the administration does not want the spike in gas prices and the global economic ripples and other headlines concomitant to a strike on Iran.

So I guess he is just trying to keep up some downside in excess of sanctions.

The problem is that the Iranians have more guts than the administration, assuming, of course, that the White House doesn’t hate Jews.

Good heavens, if you apologize for US foreign policy, how far a jump is it to sacrifice a colonialist police state to the wave of the future?

This is one of those instances where it would be great to know whether we have a president who is a kindred spirit to the Black Muslims.

here’s bill speech…Rs are evil, racists who never gave our beloved barry a chance

That said, there is at least one Democrat who could successfully pull off an attack on Republicans from the main stage – former President Bill Clinton. Clinton has the Wednesday headlining gig, and Democrats said he could unload on the GOP in a way Obama simply can’t.

“Obama can’t say what Bill Clinton can, which is ‘I got screwed. I got this job and every Republican made a blood pact to screw me.’ He can’t say that. It may be true, but he can’t. But Bill Clinton can,” one veteran operative said Sunday.

so that’s why the chatter was prepping that billy didn’t show barry the speech…so that barry would be protected from the contents

somehow this idea of billy being a centrist has gotten hold. Let’s review…what exactly did billy want to do as prezy..first thing out of the box?

gays in mil
single payer
motor voter
enhance CRA with cloward-piven
enhance the ‘relationship’ between wall street and the leftist party via rubin et al.

quiet a centrist there. and of course Hill was trained just like barry

Is this hard to predict? Israel bombs Iran in October. It’s successful. Obama takes credit, leaks that it couldn’t have been done without covert US support. Media rushes to confirm. Obama the hero has his October surprise, as he once again exploits a relationship and assets (like with the military in bin laden mission) that he privately holds in contempt.

A rain out might work out better for the dems. Lets not hope for rain.

Intellicast is calling for “scattered thunderstorms” for that area on Thursday.

There is hope. They could end up being physically, as well as morally, all wet.

I’m going to get in trouble for going On Topic but what the heck …

With TFGRP right in the middle and everyone waiting for him to react.

What will he do, embrace the attack and immediately disillusion his already fading base, or condemn it and have the GOP pounce on him as failing to support an ally while being a typical liberal sissy?

Bishop on September 2, 2012 at 8:14 PM


Considering the behind the scenes bickering internal to the Administration over the OBL green light, I think we are guaranteed the SCOAMF is going to Efff things up in a really big way.

Israel is likely to strike before the November election as a means of keeping the SCOAMF from openly trying to stop them.

They do not have the conventional munitions to reliably take out the already hardened targets.

They will not be satisfied with a “partial job” (see Osirak and the Syrian reactor as reference points).

They MAY hope Obama would be forced to back their play but they have a fall back position if Obama tries to force a truce on them – they have the scientists and the know-how on building nuclear “bunker buster” bombs driven by neutron bombs.

(Sidebar: Remember when all the liberals freaked out over America “researching” how to build neutron bombs? We already had them in the inventory. Israel was also on the “have them in inventory” list.)

If the SCOAMF tries to back Israel down by pushing for a truce, the Israelis would have a narrow window of time to strike with the nukes before Obama can make a public call for a truce.

Of course, this presumes Israle would decide not to start with nuclear bunker busters …

Gee, I wonder how the SCOAMF would react to Israel using nukes first?
