Israel’s Netanyahu warns against ‘trap’ of talks; wants all options on table
Read the comments; the Canadian people don’t want war with Iran for Israel any more than Americans do.
In a stunning coincidence, It appears Andrew Breitbart suffered his untimely death just hours before he was set to release damning video footage that could have sunk Barack Obama’s 2012 re-election campaign.
Around three weeks ago on February 9 during the ‘Blog Bash’ event in Washington DC, Breitbart made a prophetic comment that takes on a somewhat chilling nature given the fact that he died in the early hours of March 1st.
Speaking to Lawrence Sinclair of Sinclair News, Breitbart stated, “Wait til they see what happens March 1st.”
It’s almost certain that Breitbart was referring to his plan to release damning footage of President Obama that he had been promising to reveal throughout the month of February.
Latest From the Hill: Congress Criminalizes the Right to Free Assembly; Strips Basic Protections of First Amendment
It seems like every day brings us one step closer to a totalitarian police state, and today is no exception.
The Daily Crux and Economic Policy Journal have reported on a little known bill that was overwhelmingly approved by the House of Representatives (H.R. 347 vote tally 388-3) and the Senate (S.1794 passed with unanimous consent, no voting records were kept of which Senators approved).
The Federal Restricted Buildings and Grounds Improvement Act of 2011 essentially strips Americans of their right to protest and assemble in government buildings or on public or private grounds where events of “national significance” are taking place.
All this crap is going on because those who stole more than they would ever need and can’t stop even now, when they should, are unable to discipline or police themselves. Sooner or later; accent on soon, judgment will come to call. It always does.
Mass Killer: “As president of the United States, I don’t bluff.”
The Atlantic: Obama to Iran and Israel: ‘As President of the United States, I Don’t Bluff’
1) Obama is not the legitimate president of the United States since his birth certificate is a proven fraud, and he has a secret CIA past.
2) Obama is not a decision-maker, but a slave and a puppet.
3) Obama is a war criminal who is responsible for the mass murder of innocent Afghan, Libyan, Pakistani, Iraqi, and Syrian civilians by NATO.
When US President Barack Obama and Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu meet on Monday, neither heads of state will have to worry too much about plotting their war on Iran. Pentagon officials are saying that those wheels are already in motion.
Speaking on condition of anonymity, Pentagon sources this week say that both Washington and Jerusalem defense officials have already begun discussions on how the countries will work in cooperation with one another should they follow through with an attack.
Reading this makes me absolutely ill.
And President Obama, if you sign off on this, it will be one of the catastrophically wrong-headed, chock-full of horrifically unintended consequences, moves ever made by a US politician in an election year.
Unless this is a total blitzkrieg, executed with absolute precision, this attack against Iran may well not go well for the US for the following reasons.
1. The US doesn’t have the military troop strength, the money, or manufacturing capability of pursuing such a campaign effectively.
2. Leadership from nuclear armed Pakistan, Russia, and China have gone public, stating that in the case of any attack against Iran, they will come to the aid of Iran militarily.
3. So Mr. President, what we have here is the potential for a global thermonuclear war, over an alleged Iranian weapons program which cannot, to date, be proven to exist.
Economics professor Antony Davies illustrates the size the U.S. federal government’s debt and unfunded obligations. He breaks down the total U.S. debt and obligations into parts and compares them with the size of the GDP of countries around the world, showing the magnitude of America’s fiscal situation.
Preemptive self defense?
In meeting with Canada’s PM in Ottawa, PM warns against diplomatic path with Iran, says international community must not fall into Tehran’s trap.
Now, as then, an existential threat is posed to the State of Israel. Now, as then, Israel’s prime minister demands of the U.S. president that he act to remove the threat facing Israel. Now, as then, American intelligence forces are not persuaded that circumstances warrant a military act. Now, as then, Israel is liable to find itself in a corner, alone, defended only by its own capabilities. Now, as then, it is clear that no Israeli prime minister will ask for advance authorization from the American head of state for a strike, and that no U.S. president would give his approval for such an operation at this time.
Again, for the zillionth time, here are the facts of the matter:
1. To date, no nuclear material has been documented as diverted by the consistent inspections of the IAEA inside the Iranian nuclear energy facilities.
2. Iran is only enriching uranium to 20%, which is necessary for the creation of medical isotopes: this is about helping people heal, not blowing people up.
3. Israel, unlike Iran, refuses to sign the NNPT and allow its nuclear sites to be inspected.
4. Israel is bristling with nuclear weapons which it could rain down upon any neighbor-country it didn’t much like.
5. Under the Symington Amendment, all US financial and military aid is illegal, because Israel does have nuclear weapons, and refuses to become a signatory to the NNPT.
6. Iranian leadership is many things, but stupid isn’t one of them. They would not attack Israel, because they know that between the Israeli and US military, Iran would be reduced to a puddle of glass if they did anything so idiotic.
7. The leadership of nuclear armed Pakistan, Russia, and China have gone on record, stating that if Iran is attacked, they will assist it militarily.
8. So what we have here is the potential for a global thermonuclear war over an alleged Iranian weapons program which cannot, to date, be proven to exist!!
The Israeli Council of Progressive (Reform) Rabbis are urging President Barack Obama to release convicted Israeli spy and American traitor Jonathan Pollard. According to a letter obtained by the Jerusalem Post:
“We Jewish leaders primarily base our request to you on the humanitarian compassion that unites us all,” the rabbis wrote. “Mr. President, Pollard entered prison at age 30 and now he is close to 60.
The price that he paid for his actions was harsh, difficult and irreversible. His life has already been destroyed and his medical condition is bad and getting worse.” The rabbis noted that Pollard had expressed complete remorse for his actions personally and publicly many times.
US President Barack Obama on Thursday called US support for Israel “sacrosanct” and vowed to ensure the Jewish state retains its “military superiority.”
Obama’s comments come ahead of a March 5 meeting at the White House with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who is making a full court press to ensure US commitment to decisive action against Iran’s nuclear program.
I sure as heck wish Obama had such a ‘sacrosanct’ support for the needs and concerns of the American people here at home!!
We spend billions on Israel every year, while homeless Vets sleep in our streets and our infrastructure crumbles.
It is no accident that Netanyahu had his visit to Canada’s Prime Minister Harper in advance of his visit with Obama next week.
The US government may well collapse,, and Netanyahu sees Canada as the next “host” for Israel’s financial and military needs.
Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said on Friday that Israel has the right to defend itself against a country that wants to destroy it, referring to Iran.
Netanyahu made the comments as he began a meeting with Canada’s Prime Minister Stephen Harper in Ottawa, according to a CBC report.
“I know from many conversations that we’ve had that you share my view that this is a grave threat to the peace and security of the world and I think it is important that the international community not allow this threat to materialize,” Netanyahu was quoted as having told Harper as they held a photo opportunity in Harper’s office.
“As for Israel,” added Netanyahu, “like any sovereign country, we reserve the right to defend ourselves against a country that calls and works for our destruction.
Memo to Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu; sir, forgive me, but the “big lie” technique is really passe, and you cannot be taken seriously by any thinking individual in this issue.
As you are very well aware, Ahmedinejad never said that he wanted to , allegedly, “wipe Israel off the map”.
The devil is in the detail, wiping Israel off the map suggests a physical genocidal assault, a literal population relocation or elimination akin to what the Nazis did. According to numerous different translations, Ahmadinejad never used the word “map,” instead his statement was in the context of time and applied to the Zionist regime occupying Jerusalem. Ahmadinejad was expressing his future hope that the Zionist regime in Israel would fall, not that Iran was going to physically annex the country and its population. To claim Ahmadinejad has issued a rallying cry to ethnically cleanse Israel is akin to saying that Churchill wanted to murder all Germans when he stated his desire to crush the Nazis.
And please, what does a bristlingly nuclear-armed Israel have to worry about in terms of Iran ever attacking it?!?
The leadership of Iran is many things, but sir, stupid is not one of them. Why would they do the most idiotically, ham-fistedly thing they could do militarily, when they are absolutely clear on what the consequences? And as you know, the short answer is, they wouldn’t!
To date, no nuclear material has gone missing from Iran’s energy program, and they are only enriching up to 20%, with which to create medical isotopes. This is not about blowing people up; it is about helping people heal.
It is obvious that the words “..“like any sovereign country, we reserve the right to defend ourselves…” translates, in Netanyahu-speak, to “We have the right to blow up any neighboring country we don’t like; better still, have the dumb Americans do that for us!”
But as you also know, leadership from nuclear-armed Russia, China, and Pakistan has gone public, stating that if Iran is attacked, they will support it militarily.
So what we have here, sir, is the potential for a global thermonuclear war over an alleged Iranian weapons program which, to date, cannot be proven to exist!
Poster remark: filed under “humor”. Barack just pulled a fast one over The Onion; there is no way they can top this.
Apparently the “green shoots of hope”, the “economic turn around”, the “US out-innovating out-educating and out-building the world”, and the “taking responsibility for the deficit spending” were just … statements to confuse the enemy?
If you want to get paid for doing something stupid, just turn to the U.S. government. The U.S. government is paying researchers to play video games, it is paying researchers to study the effects of cocaine on Japanese quail and it has spent millions of dollars to train Chinese prostitutes to drink responsibly. The amount of money that the government wastes is absolutely horrifying. Do you remember all of that political wrangling over the debt ceiling deal last year? Do you remember how our politicians told us that there were cutting spending as much as they possibly could? Well, it was all a giant lie. As you will see below, the U.S. government is spending money on some of the most stupid things imaginable.
Greece is being systematically raped, pillaged and destroyed. Bankers demand it. What they want, they get, no matter the human toll and economic ruin.
Standing armies pale by comparison. Financial oligarchs wage war by other means and take no prisoners. Greece is Exhibit A. More on it below.
Even the neoliberal New York Times noted a “Greek Tragedy,” saying:
It’s “chok(ing) on Europe’s conditions. (The) approach will not work.” Greece can’t possibly repay debt. The more added, the greater the burden, the less ability to service and repay.
Is this a war aim Americans need to die for?
Netanyahu’s war will be a war fought for Israel, started by Israel, and benefiting only Israel. As for us, we will suffer a series of economic shocks, not just oil shock but the shock of a much-accelerated financial crisis hastened by the conflict. To say nothing of the shock of discovering that our fighting men and women have been turned into the instrument of a foreign power – and all without a peep of protest (or a real act of resistance) from any of the leaders of the two major parties, including our own President.”
