Not sure if this is anything as it’s second hand and from overseas, but it unfortunately fits exactly what we’ve been hearing, also from overseas. Still, take it with a grain of salt, at the very least. It’s all, at best, second hand. But it fits everything else we’re seeing too, which is worse and does make us worry:
But Israel is hardly reassured. An article posted at the Israeli site Ynetnews.com puts a completely different spin on the matter. Diplomatic sources tell Israeli journalists that the U.S. is scrambling to distance itself from the Israel and appears to be giving Iran the green light to launch a counter-strike, if Israel attacks first:
The United States has indirectly informed Iran, via two European nations, that it would not back an Israeli strike against the country’s nuclear facilities, as long as Tehran refrains from attacking American interests in the Persian Gulf, Yedioth Ahronoth reported Monday.
According to the report, Washington used covert back-channels in Europe to clarify that the US does not intend to back Israel in a strike that may spark a regional conflict.
Thing is: Israel cannot not respond to the threat from Iran as the Mad Mullahs will use their new weapon if they get it. We’re not dealing with rational actors here and they have promised that they’ll use it on numerous occasions. So they, Israel, have to do something because “sanctions”, “diplomatic notes of concern” etc. will not and have never worked with rational actors. Not once in all of history. We’re dealing with religious fanatics and, what’s worse, religious fanatics entirely insulated from the consequences that their population will have to bear. They’re nice and safe in their underground bunkers and no amount of financial hardship imposed by sanctions on their hapless subjects is going to move them. Because they’ve got ALLAH on their side. And the Twelfth Imam or whatever it is they call him these days.
Given: If the mullahs get their nuke, they WILL fire it. Any response from the civilized world will be cold comfort to dead Jews. Israel has no choice. And if the Obama idiot administration is sending out signals that they won’t react with hellfire if the mullahs strike back is an open invitation for the mullahs to do what they were going to do anyway. It doesn’t “defuse” the situation, it does the exact opposite. It forces Israel to act first and it gives the already insane assholes for allah hope that they might just get away with nuking Tel Aviv.
Like Neville Chamberlain’s idiocy, this move of Obama’s, if true, guarantees war.
We live in interesting times indeed.
