Has Netanyahu's bluff been called? Is war with Iran a given for the U.S.?Submitted by ronb28135 on Sun, 10/07/2012 - 18:12
"The United States has refused to set a date certain by which Iran must end all enrichment. Hillary Clinton said this weekend that we are “not setting deadlines.” And the election, which could give Obama a free hand to pursue his own timetable and terms for a deal with Tehran, is only eight weeks off.
"If Obama, no fan of Bibi, wins, he can tell Bibi: We oppose any Israeli pre-emptive strike. If you attack Iran, we will not support you. Nor will we follow up an Israeli attack with an American attack.
... "And the Americans have sent emissaries, including Secretary Leon Panetta, to tell Bibi we oppose an Israeli attack. The Pentagon does not want war. Three former U.S. Central Command heads oppose a war. And last week, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs Gen. Martin Dempsey said he does not wish to be “complicit” in any Israeli attack."
Which is the greater threat to America? Four years with Romney who is almost certain to invade Iran or another four years with Obama and possibly no invasion of Iran? What other possibilities are there?
How many lives are Americans willing to throw away before the voters rebel against sending in more of our troops to augment the policies of an "ally" who is unwilling to assist us with her troops or money, and who has been as much of a problem for us as are her enemies.
