Is Obama ready for his 3 A.M. telephone call?
the next 60 days Obama's presidential career will finally meet that
concrete wall of reality. He will either fail or survive. Trouble is,
he might take many innocent people with him if he fails.
far, the most hyped-up and unqualified president in US history has
shown no capacity at all to act, in the face of a do-or-die challenge.
This is the ultimate test of character, the one that John F. Kennedy
met well enough in the 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis. This is the test that
Jimmy Carter failed so miserably that Ronald Reagan beat him handily in
the following election. This is the same test of reality that every
single Democratic Administration has tried to avoid; it's the reason why
Bill Clinton refused to do anything about Osama Bin Laden when he had
four separate chances to take him out.
or about April 1 of 2012, that 3 AM phone call will reach the White
House. We know what it will be -- which is itself a sign of stunning
incompetence in this White House. None of this information should ever
be public. Ever.
But this administration has chosen its Secretary of Defense to publicly leak the most closely guarded secret of Israel's back-against-the-wall defense against Iranian nuclear weapons.
public leaks amount to near treason in time of war. Imagine if someone
leaked General Eisenhower's plans for the D-Day invasion in June of
1944. FDR would have fired them instantly, or if they were foreigners
he would have felt justified to have them killed. Hundreds of thousands
of American and Allied lives were at stake on D Day. In Israel today,
hundreds of thousands of Jewish lives are at stake. Don't expect
countries fighting for their national survival to act any differently.
It will make no difference. The Israelis are sensitive to hate propaganda by the international left, except
when survival is at stake. Then they act to survive. That used to be
US policy as well, until the fantasy-ridden Democrats took over the
country. Today Obama is cutting our defense budget and reducing US
nuclear weapons to the lowest level ever, even while nuclear
proliferation breaks out all over the world. Good timing, BHO.
conventional wisdom is that Israel must attack Iranian nuclear sites
soon, because Ahmadinejad is moving his nuclear industry into deep
mountain tunnels on an emergency basis. Once his nuke industry is
deeply bunkered it is essentially invulnerable to conventional weapons.
It is the point of no return.
conventional wisdom also claims that Israel cannot maintain a long-term
bombing campaign. Only the United States can do that. But the US is
refusing to be the cop on the block, leaving the defense of the world's
biggest oil supply to ... nobody. No one else has the power to do it.
Which is why the Saudis are nuking up.
Regardless anyone's thinking about the US being the world's policeman, regardless how anyone views our fighting other nation's wars, surely we have retained a smidgeon of integrity when it comes to world affairs. WE may have, but Obama and his handlers certainly haven't. I suspect they have never experienced integrity. It apparently means NOTHING when our friends need us.
I am not a lover of the Republican Party, but that doesn't mean I can't see how the world got to the point it has - the problems we are facing re possible nuclear war can be logically laid at the feet of the incompetent Democrat Presidents and their incompetent "advisors". Bumbling fools is a description too kind for them.
These people can talk until they are blue in the face - it doesn't change the fact that all three were jokes in the Presidency, and Israel will pay the price. And frankly, I believe the Israelis are more human and deserve more consideration than any of these three carpetbaggers.
