Israel wanted an airstrike on Iran- discussed with Bush in May- Bush said no.

JERUSALEM - Israel gave serious thought earlier this year to a military strike on Iran's nuclear sites but was told by President Bush he would not support it, Britain's Guardian newspaper reported Friday.

Quoting what it called senior diplomatic sources who work for a European head of government, the left-leaning Guardian said Bush told Israel he did not expect to revise that view for the rest of his presidency.

Mark Regev, spokesman for Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, said Israel preferred a diplomatic solution to the dispute over Iran's nuclear program.

Cut 'em loose

Leave the afffairs of Israel to Israel. Their interests are, as ours should be, purely for their own security. They are perfectly capable of handling their own problems. Most importantly, they have no record of imperialist tendencies.

Perhaps a call against bailout is a call for bombing Iran

Be careful folks...this is chess, not checkers.

The international banking cartel controls the US via economic


It is obvious that this cartel is pro-Israel and wants the US to be Israel's muscle.

The whole Georgia/Russia thing did seem to sprout up as a 'reason' not to attack Iran. More likely, US politicians/powers that be want to get more pro-Israel organizations lobbying monies/contributions before they attack Iran.

Instead, of forking up more money, the cartel just staged an economic plunge that their media backs. To what extent this plunge is real or not is irrelevant.

The point is that they are trying to blackmail US politicians. Neither parties are on our side...we are just pawns that are used in the power struggle.

And really, I don't see how we can do anything about it. In general, they need us, but not all of us. Harming and killing us can become exceptable. I for one, plan to become as independent as possible: learn how to live off the land, acquire certain tools, guns, seeds, water, etc., get real wealth, get an education that works in good and bad times, etc.

I know we all want to somehow take control of the situation...to assert the power of the people, but looking back on history, the people never had any power other than that which the powers that be gave to them. They simply are willing to do things that we aren't. So, to at least a large extent, becoming fully awake means accepting our vulnerabilities and do what we can, within our moral principles, to survive.
