"Israeli officials said that if they eventually decide a strike is necessary, they would keep the Americans in the dark to decrease the likelihood that the U.S. would be held responsible for failing to stop Israel's potential attack. The U.S. has been working with the Israelis for months to convince them that an attack would be only a temporary setback to Iran's nuclear program."
Israel Won't Warn US Before Iran Strike

A recent comment by WFO on the above item:
"Pure baloney! The US is providing Israel with everything needed to attack Iran - bunker busters, aircraft, missile defense systems, the US naval fleet, and 45 military bases surrounding Iran
- and all the units of goy fodder needed."

ـ" أقلب التلفاز بين حين وآخر بحثا عن موضوع يتناول شيئا غير السقوط السياسي والإجتماعي العربي الذي تكشف عاريا منذ سقوط بغداد بأيدي "اللطامة" و"الصحوة" و"البيشمركه".... وقبل أيام استوقفني حديث دخلت عليه في وسطه أردت أن أشرككم بما ادركت منه حتى إذا لم يكن لكم اهتمام بالمقام الغائي فهو تراث عربي في كل حال.....
المتحدث هو مؤذن الجامع الأموي والذي جمعته من الحديث أنه لا يعمل مؤذنا كوظيفة بل هو صاحب عمل ويؤذن متطوعا لجمال صوته الذي أدركه منذ الصغر وأعجب الآخرين.....
لكن ما يهمني هنا هو ما قاله بعد ذلك... واليكم خلاصته.."ـ

".... In short, Iran has achieved a conventional deterrent to Israel. Therefor, statements by Iranian officials that Iran has no nuclear weapons program are in my view probably correct. Presently, Iran does not need nukes to deter Israel. It can do so with its GPS-guided medium range missiles. The Israelis are no doubt gnashing their teeth over this, because they now find themselves threatened by their own WMD stockpiles, and by their own nuclear reactors, especially Dimona, all of which have become targets.
A few direct hits by Iran could cause a toxic plume, killing thousands of Israelis. A worst case might signal the end of the Jewish state.
It is important to realize that Iran would never launch a pre-emptive strike on Israel because the Iranians know that the US/Israeli response would be devastating. However, if Iran comes under attack first, all bets are off. Iran will defend itself. A counter attack on Israel cannot be ruled out because Iranian leaders understand clearly (even if the American people do not) that the crisis has been manufactured, on Israel's behalf."
Behind the Deepening Crisis with Iran:
The Real Story Versus the Cover Story, February 21, 2012
"Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Ehud Barak have launched a vicious attack on US Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Martin Dempsey, an American war hero, saying his recent statements "served Iran." They objected to his statement on Sunday, on Fareed Zakaria's GPS , that
"I don't think a wise thing at this moment is for Israel to launch a military attack on Iran…"
He also said such a strike "would be destabilizing" and "not prudent." He added,
"…we are of the opinion that the Iranian regime is a rational actor. And it's for that reason, I think, that we think the current path we're on is the most prudent path at this point."
Why Barack Obama continually lets Netanyahu humiliate him is completely beyond my understanding. He should call off the March 5 meeting now planned with Netanyahu and let him cool his heels till he apologizes.
And, I'll bet you that the supposedly super-patriotic Republican candidates won't dare so much as say "boo" to Tel Aviv over this insult to Dempsey- in fact, the chicken hawks are likely to pile on him on behalf of their Christian and Jewish Zionist donors".
