Iran, Israel, the United States and War

Here's to Israel's security...at the top of the United States’ priorities.


Israel calls for time limit on Iran talks

"It is important that the dialogue with Iran be limited in duration and that if after three months it will be clear that the Iranians are playing for time and not ceasing their nuclear program, then the international community will have to take practical measures," Lieberman said in a release issued Wednesday by the foreign ministry. {more}

Israel would inform, not ask US, before hitting Iran

"I do not doubt that Israel will do what it thinks it needs to do, regardless of whether the U.S. approves," said Mark Fitzpatrick, non-proliferation expert at the International Institute for Strategic Studies in London.

"Israel would seek forgiveness, not permission."

A retired Israeli general who advises the government on strategic issues suggested there was a tacit synchronicity in recent messages about Iran from Israel and the United States:

"The Israeli threat adds urgency to Obama's calls for diplomatic engagement, and should Israel take things into its hands, the Americans retain wriggle room, some deniability." {more}


Israel needs a bigger “terrorist attack” for its war on Iran
However, now that the triger to Israel’s 240-400 nuclear bombs is in the hands of a Zionist mass-killer, Benjamin Netanyahu, who gloated on the 9/11 carnage - could scare the hell out of Obama’s Israel Lobby-controlled administration with the help of its White House Chief of Staff, a former Israeli soldier and son of a Jew-terrorist or fake another much bigger terrorist attack than the 9/11 - to swing American public opinion in favour of war on Islamic Iran. Former US Middle East negotiator, Aaron David Miller did predict that Netanyahu’s first priority would be a strategic conversation with Barack Obama to scare the day lights out of the US president, the ultimate objective of which would be mobilizing not only the US but also the entire international community into addressing the Iranian situation in a manner deemed acceptable to the Zionist regime’s agenda in the Middle East. {more}

Israel has not given up on its plans to bomb Iran

The Obama administration may think bombing Iran's nuclear installations is a bad idea, but that does not seem to have made much impact on Israel's thinking, if recent comments by Israeli President Shimon Peres are to be believed.

Speaking to Jewish leaders in New York the supposedly dovish Mr Peres said that Israel would continue to consider other "options" for dealing with the threat posed to the Jewish state's existence by Iran's illicit nuclear programme if American attempts to bring Iran to its senses failed.

Mr Peres did not spell out what those other options might be, but it is widely known that Israel is prepared to launch unilateral military against Iran if the West's attempts to negotiate a resolution of the crisis fail. The likelihood of Israel attacking Iran, moreover, has increased dramatically since the hawkish Bibi Netanyahu became prime minister. {more}


The Council on Foreign Relations never met a war they didn't like. It's part of their job in creating a 'new order.'
When is War Justified?

The concept of justifiable war is not simply one for history. Iran, North Korea, Pakistan, Afghanistan -all are potential theaters for new or intensified U.S. military action. The question is not whether they would constitute just wars. That is too impractical a standard. The question in the real world is whether they would be justifiable--to Congress, to the American people, to the world. It is a question President Obama will have to answer. {more}
