Neocon Ted Cruz: Israel Strike Against Iran ‘Could Happen In A Matter Of Months’

Texas Sen. Ted Cruz told a small gathering of pro-Israel American leaders Tuesday that an Israeli strike against Iranian nuclear facilities “could happen in a matter of months.”

“In my view, [Iranian Supreme Leader Ali] Khamenei believes there is no credible deterrence from the United States, there’s not realistic risk of significant consequence for moving forward with their nuclear development,” the Republican told the Spring National Leadership Meeting of the Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs (JINSA) at the Willard Hotel. “That means, that if they keep going forward, I think if it comes down to it, I have real confidence that the nation of Israel will act to preserve her national security, even if this administration will not act first. And that could happen sooner rather than later — that could happen in a matter of months.”


“In my view, here is what a responsible president would do,” Cruz, who is believed to be considering a 2016 presidential run, said. “A responsible president would stand up on the world stage and say, ‘Let me be clear: Under no circumstances will the nation of Iran be allowed to acquire nuclear weapons capability. We will impose crippling sanctions but they will either stop or we will stop them using all available means, including if necessary direct military force.’”

The cycle continues

U.S./Israeli politicians start talking trash about Iran and predict an attack on that country involving the U.S., Israel, or both, in the near future. It makes the papers for a week or two. Iran responds with "If we are attacked, we will defend ourselves and we will destroy Israel." The media then quotes Iranian officials as threatening to destroy Israel.
Wait several months, and then repeat. It has been a favorite for decades.

Did he get that from his wife?



My blood isn't spilling to

My blood isn't spilling to stop Iran "at all costs." So, Mr. Cruz, I politely ask you to get F*****.

And why aren't more people pointing to the fact that he is not a natural born citizen and cannot be eligible for president? He is certainly just another shade of political hack helping to destroy our Republic

You do NOT want this man to

You do NOT want this man to have access to the RED BUTTON. He is a dangerous fellow with a vested interest in the protection of Isrtael it seems over the lives of Americans.

Screw the Red Button

Just give the guy an M16 and a plane ticket to Israel and he can go fight their wars himself if he wants to so bad.

I hate Chickenhawk politicians.

We all share this eternally evolving present moment- The past and future only exist as inconsequential mental fabrications.

Hey foreign born TED CRUZ

One question. Why exactly should I give a Damb about IzUnReal and for that matter Iran. Especially when the country I live in is being attacked by a fake government that is run through the counterfeiting false debt producing Corporation owned by FOREIGN Rothschild Family and their under crime lords?

IzUnReal is a coward and only stabs in the back or lies cheats or steals you will never see these dogs attack anyone straight on. They use proxy stooges and false flag attacks.

In fact if I add up the attacks from IzUnReal upon the USA then compare to attacks from Iran. Guess what. USS LIBERTY and NY trade center buildings were not attacked by the involvement of Iran.


I wouldn't call

Cruz a Neocon, which is really neo com or communist, as Trotsky was a communist. However, he is a Ziocon, or Zionism following conservative, who believes Israel should be protected at all costs. They do come in close alignment as the regional goals reach similar agendas, and actually work in concert in promoting the MIC agenda. Here's an excellent speech by Philip Giraldi, a friend of Dr Paul, who outlines the fact Israel is not our ally or even our friend, by presenting the 'empirical facts'.

I beleive it's called a warmonger

Zio-con or not...he can use any conflict on that half of the globe to justify "protecting" Israel , and he can use any conflict on our side as protecting the USA...thats war the entire world over.
This guy gets scarier by the word. He's like A male version of Lindsey Graham.

I'd rather have a bottle in front o' me than a frontal lobotomy

I think "shovel-er of money

I think "shovel-er of money to Lockheed/Martin, Northrup/Grumman, and Raytheon" most accurately describes his function.

All of the Israel, warmongering, incinerations, and carnage stuff is just packaging so it can be sold to himself and Boobus.
