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.

We will need re-supply, jet fuel, bombs, and maybe search and rescue, not too mention a steadfast ally in the face of world onslaught. I’m not sure we can count on any of this any more from President Obama. It doesn’t even matter if the avg American supports us, he holds you with almost as much disregard as he holds us.

Make no mistake, war with Iran is not war with Iraq, albeit the major players don’t want nuclear armed Iran, they’re deeply vested and majority Islamic and Iran’s GDP and war capability dwarfs what Iraq’s was.

Couple that with China and Russia having large stakes in our most active enemy, open war with Iran means fighting them the same way we did in Vietnam (and Iraq), and how Israel and us proceed becomes a critical issue not for the faint of heart and not for any amateurish, anti US interest, less than fully engaged President.

The best route, with the best return on investment IMHO would be to covertly undermine the oppressive regime so that while it collapses we arrange for Iran’s most dangerous war machines come under our control, and in such a way that exposes the sleeper cells all across the world.

Not easy, not simple, not without risk.

October Nightmare

How about the $7 a gallon gasoline?

How about losing more of his base unless he bombs our allies?

Finally, Iraq had little of a high tech military but look at the resistance we faced as we entered with an armed force designed to tackle the “Evil Empire”. This was while the enemy had no ‘safe staging areas’and was subject to the full force of our tech toys.

Finally, the Iranians hate us from the days of the despised Shah of Shahs. They are not cowards as attested to by the horrible war with Iraq.

If it was wrong six months ago, it is really wrong now and Bebe better remember the dithering over continuing in the Afghan troop allotments before he looks for a savior in Washington.

Finally, the scope of the conflict component may not go according to our wishes and our military knows that.

It may be a surprise but it will not be a surprise party.

The Saudi’s and the other Gulf States are just short of open warfare with Iran themselves due to Iran’s backing of Shia unrest.

Russia and China’s support of Iran has been seen as clearly choosing a side in the struggle.

Iran is a Persian nation. Everyone else is Arabic.

You want something else to worry about?

While publicly outraged if Israel were to “attack their Muslim brothers”, they would likely take no more than token retaliatory measures … even if it was Iran that was wiped off the face of the map.

This whole thing can go from zero to out of control in NOTHING FLAT thanks to the SCOAMF’s handling of Israel.

Possible Military Strike Against Iran’s
Nuclear Facilities

March 28, 2012
**************

Summary
=======

Several published reports indicate that top Israeli decisionmakers now are seriously considering
whether to order a military strike on Iran’s nuclear facilities, and if so, when. Twice in Israel’s
history, it has conducted air strikes aimed at halting or delaying what Israeli policymakers
believed to be efforts to acquire nuclear weapons by a Middle Eastern state—destroying Iraq’s
Osirak reactor in 1981 and a facility the Israelis identified as a reactor under construction in Syria
in 2007. Today, Israeli officials generally view the prospect of a nuclear-armed Iran as an
unacceptable threat to Israeli security—with some viewing it as an existential threat.
This report analyzes key factors that may influence current Israeli political decisions relating to a
possible strike on Iranian nuclear facilities. These include, but are not limited to, the views of and
relationships among Israeli leaders; the views of the Israeli public; U.S., regional, and
international stances and responses as perceived and anticipated by Israel; Israeli estimates of the
potential effectiveness and risks of a possible strike; and responses Israeli leaders anticipate from
Iran and Iranian-allied actors—including Hezbollah and Hamas—regionally and internationally.

For Congress,
=============

the potential impact—short- and long-term—of an Israeli decision regarding Iran
and its implementation is a critical issue of concern. By all accounts, such an attack could have
considerable regional and global security, political, and economic repercussions, not least for the
United States, Israel, and their bilateral relationship. It is unclear what the ultimate effect of a
strike would be on the likelihood of Iran acquiring nuclear weapons. The current Israeli
government, President Barack Obama, and many Members of Congress have shared concerns
about Iran’s nuclear program. They appear to have a range of views on how best to address those
shared concerns. Iran maintains that its nuclear program is solely for peaceful, civilian energy and
research purposes, and U.S. intelligence assessments say that Iran has not made a decision to
build nuclear weapons. However, Iran continues to enrich uranium in militarily hardened sites
and questions remain about its nuclear weapons capabilities and intentions.
Short- and long-term questions for Members of Congress to consider regarding a possible Israeli
decision to strike Iranian nuclear facilities militarily might include, but are not limited to, the

following:
==========

•How might an Israeli strike affect options and debate regarding short-term and
long-term U.S. relations and security cooperation with, and foreign assistance to,
Israel and other regional countries?

• Would an Israeli strike be considered self-defense? Why or why not? What would
be the legal and policy implications either way?

• How might a strike affect the implementation of existing sanctions legislation on
Iran or options and debate over new legislation on the subject?

• How might Congress consult with the Obama Administration on and provide
oversight with respect to various political and military options?
(More….)
==========

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…

Translation:

The Obama administration will say he supports a military strike, but wants Israel to wait because he doesn’t want to piss off his liberal friends(liberal voters).

Then, after the election(you know, when he can be more “flexible”), he will be free to condemn any Israel aggression toward Iran, along with his buddies, the Russians.

I think that pretty much sums it up, doesn’t it?!

He will seek vengeance on us every way he can. When we say in Israel this is an existential threat, we are not joking around. On so many levels the threat is real, it comes even from the US President.

If the numbers I’ve seen are correct there are approximately 300 to 400 of the GBU-57A-B Penetrator bunker buster bombs available for drop. One site I like to keep up with these things is Global Security. Worth a tumble from time to time. My take is if possible this assault should be held off on until the new President is sworn in. My hopes are this will be the case. Make no mistake this will be a costly effort to each of us in the purse. The alternative is not so pinchy good either. Iran will use nukes to bring about the imam in the well. They are heIIbent on seeing it so. Shame really. Good luck Israel. Good luck US. Good luck World. Iran I wish you to fail. Not your people necessarily, just your fanatical clerics. May they see God sooner rather than later. Allah Akbar! And screw you!

I do not feel one upped, I pray every day for the USA I know what a disaster this has been. I look forward in 20 to 30 years to reading books, honest books about how this happened. How such a radical ideologue who deep down loves America’s enemies, and is totally at odds with everything America stands for in every way – became President of the United States.

Some liberal host on NPR just called Condaleeza Rice a war criminal. Said her RNC speech was a touching story how a girl from the segregated south can eventually become a war criminal.

The trip was a 30th Wedding Anniversary present. It felt weird to be out of the mix during the convention but Alaska is breathtakingly beautiful.

Prayers for the Israeli people. The only thing the Israelis have going for them in this administration is Obama’s complete incompetence.
